Testimonials

We love the fact that we operate in such a niche market and consequently work with enthusiastic clients who appreciate the benefits of incorporating exposed timbers in their builds. We’re lucky enough to have developed relationships with a wide range of people who love the character and ‘wow factor’ that the Timberworks brand has added to their homes.  Here is a selection of some of the feedback we’ve received.

“Wow, the trusses look fantastic! I can’t believe those ‘old world’ skills are still out there and I have some of them in my home!  You are obviously true craftsmen at Timberworks; I’m so pleased I found you and not only was the job done on time but under budget too.  The trusses are a stunning feature in our living room and are much admired, by all who visit. Thanks for all the support Martin, you gave me great confidence throughout and I will have no hesitation in recommending you and your team to any prospective clients”, DC Family, Matakana

“Beautiful work, we love our trusses”; Walter Bensemann, Blenheim

“When I first called in to look at the workshop and the timber beams hand crafted by Martin , Lesley and the team at Timberworks I was blown away – for a workshop that must produce tonnes of wood shavings I couldn’t believe that there weren’t any – anywhere. That’s the class these guys are.

It seemed sacrilege to ask Martin to paint our trusses white when all you could see were trusses showing off the raw beauty of timber.  

When they duly arrived on site to be craned into position they looked magnificent. I had arranged to fly them into position , but that’s another story! 

Now the ceiling is complete , the white timber trusses with 20 degree pitch x 8.6 m length, contrast perfectly with the fully exposed steel portal to give our beachfront holiday home a real beachy but sophisticated look. 

Asking Martin to paint them doesn’t seem like a sacrilege now. 

I can’t believe how these trusses have transformed this house and it seemed so easy dealing with Martin and Lesley”; Mike Henderson, Motueka.

“Timberworks have been involved in creating two buildings on our property; a Garden cottage (Richmond cabin) with interior trusses and a two level Summerhouse overlooking a lake. The accuracy of the workmanship is faultless.  We have found Timberworks to be completely reliable and professional and their attention to detail is everything we could have hoped for.  We live in a park-like environment and have noted that visitors and guests react to the Garden cottage and Summerhouse as features of interest and beauty in the overall landscape.  We would have no hesitation in using Timberworks again, or recommending their services to other people.” ; Rick and Sarah Griffin, Silvan, Nelson

“…as we approach winter, we are stocking up on logs for the fire.  You could say we are looking forward to sitting in our living room under the magnificent structure the Timberworks crew created for us.  We have had so many positive comments from visitors, friends and family over the last year which makes us feel really proud of what we have got here.  We would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for a wonderful experience and an awesome result.” – Simon and Kay Duquemin, Redwood Valley

“…the feeling of confidence and assurity of receiving a totally unique and quality product from professional craftsmen…..We feel privileged to have such an awe inspiring focus to our home that reflects a heritage of time honoured, traditional craftsmanship.”  Audrey and Sam Watt – Ruby Bay Lodge & Vineyard
