Their expertise in ICF construction (Insulated Concrete Form) and radiant heating systems such as Legalett was demonstrated when they built our new store.  Our staff here at Apsley Home Hardware Building Centre are always comfortable recommending Waddell Custom Homes as a builder of choice to our customers.

We were lucky to work with Andrew on our addition. We managed to double the living space of our home while maintaining the charm and integrity of our century old farmhouse. Andrew's advice and guidance throughout the planning and build enhanced our design and the workmanship and quality were exceptional. Through creatively re-employing some materials, were able to incorporate many elements of the original home while creating a spacious, new addition.  We lived in our home during the expansion and Andrew's team were a pleasure and totally accommodated our needs.  We love the end result and wouldn't change a thing!
