Just want to say thanks

Att: Mr David Gaskin,

David Gaskin Designs.

Just wanting to say a big thank you for your assistance and help in designing our Holiday house at Venus Bay.

Being a first time owner builder, you have made our task much easier with all the expert advice etc, even after the planning process had finished – I called you numerous times you always had time to talk to me and answer any questions I had.

If we know of anyone wishing to build a home anywhere in Melbourne, we certainly would have no hesitation in recommending your services.

Kind Regards

Norbert and Frieda Mein

Providing a great Solution

David Gaskin was commissioned to finalise designs and complete drawings for our new beach house at Harmers Haven. Whilst the designs were more or less decided on, David worked through several details and resolved a number of complex design issues. He came up with many solutions to unresolved problems and his back ground in the steel fabricating industry was especially valuable. He liaised with the engineers and helped to simplify the overall design and eliminated a number of engineers created “uglies”. He introduced us to many building materials and systems which were incorporated into the construction. He quickly learnt about the special systems that we ourselves introduced such as zinc cladding to the upper level, a new roofing system and European uPVC double glazed windows. David is always enthusiastic and quickly works to resolve any issues that develop during the documentation process. As of November 2018, we are still working with him to design the steel external staircase and will be working with him during the building process.
