FDL builders were very considerate to our needs during our build, walkway planks and doormats placed strategically for us, door locks were moved from door to door to keep everything safe as we lived through reno. All the trades were professional, respectful and we felt very comfortable having them around our young family. 

All reno projects entail the unexpected, FDL builders listened to our needs, wants and concerns and looked after us along the way often going above and beyond. A portaloo was swiftly replaced when illness struck the family, an extra showerhead included with good humour, an old boundary fence secured in high winds on a non-build day, a wooden shoe rack was created from offcuts while waiting for floor sealant to dry. These are the kinds of builders you want looking after your build.


The new space suits the way our family lives perfectly and we even miss having the community of tradie characters around. We'll be happy to welcome them back for stage two of our plans.

Tobye did a great job in renovating our bathroom, combining the bathroom and the toilet into a bright, well designed space. The outcome undoubtedly enhanced both the functionality of living in the house and also its resale value.   

Tobye’s work was of uniformly high standard, his input to planning extremely informative and helpful and his personal conduct impeccable. Tobye kept us well informed and was also extremely forward thinking which is important to us.  

His commitment to quality is clearly a personal driver and to be highly commended. We would recommend Tobye and his work to anyone.


Cat & Paul - Carlton

Tobye worked with great care and efficiency to bring our new home to life, making sure we were happy with every step of what became a major renovation. We really appreciated his patience and willingness to work with us on exactly what we wanted.


Tobye did a great job of incorporating many salvaged components including kitchen cabinets, windows and doors. His attention to detail was outstanding and his suggestions with regard to the major structural changes and also the smallest elements meant we now have a home that brings us great pleasure every day.


We would have no hesitation in recommending Tobye.


Andrew & Jess - Sunshine

Tobye's attention to detail was fantastic and his background as a violin maker was definitely as asset.


There was a beautiful craftsmanship and finesse about the build, and I could see that he took pride in his work. I now spend my time at home in the kitchen and living area with its high ceiling and great natural light. I have set up my painting studio in the living area and it is a pleasure to work in.


I often spend time gazing out the windows looking at the sky that is constantly changing which I have painted. I am cooking a lot more in the kitchen. His tradie team were highly professional too and good at their jobs too. It has definitely improved my quality of life.

Tobye and his team were fabulous to work with renovating our derelict bathroom.


From our intial quote to the end of the project there was always great communication. Our costs and timelines were kept and we couldn't be happier with the finished product.


We stayed in our home during the bathroom overhaul and everyday the guys were courteous and respectful of our family and home.


Very professional crew who take great pride in their work. I have no hesitation in recommending Fleur-de-Lys builders for any building project - thank you again for our awesome bathroom!
