Being fairly new to Australia when we decided to renovate our newly purchased home, we were rather daunted at the prospect of finding a good building team to take on the task. The double storey house had good ‘bones’ but was in desperate need of internal uplifting and modernising along with some necessary structural changes.
From the the start of the tender process, Tim proved to be honest, upfront and methodical in his quoting and both my husband and I had a good feeling about working with him. Luckily we went with our intuition because Tim and his team did an excellent job. His builders and contractors were absolutely respectful of our property and neighbours and the quality of the labour was pristine.
Tim was very accommodating of our architects and their vision for the property and he communicated with us through every step of the project to ensure no nasty surprises.
We absolutely love our new home and could not be more grateful to Tim and his team for making it an actuality for us. I could not recommend them more highly.

It is rare to be able to endorse a business without reservation, but such is the result of our experience with Sharpe Building Solutions.
We never had to doubt that Tim had our backs and our best interests at heart. He met all timelines (a rare achievement in the sector) and his workforce were courteous and incredibly tidy.
Our property never resembled a building site and requested changes were met with a smile by Tim and his merry band and implemented without fuss.
A lovely team and a very positive experience for my wife and I. Thank you Tim for your integrity

We could not have been happier with the work and professionalism of Tim and his team at Sharpe Building Solutions. The whole project was run on time and on budget with the exception of delays that were entirely our fault! Tim’s input into important design and material choices was brilliant (even improving on the original architect’s design) and his guidance on choices of all the “little” things (tiles, lights, colours, finishes, benchtops, appliances etc.) was spot on and made a normally difficult process easy and comfortable. His team of tradies did a brilliant job and showed that they genuinely cared about producing an outstanding outcome for our home and that is exactly what they did. We couldn’t be happier with the job they all did from start to finish and we are grateful for being fortunate enough to choose Sharpe Building Solutions to deliver our beautiful family home.
We undertook a major renovation of our Sydney apartment and engaged Sharpe Building Solutions to carry out the work. We couldn’t be happier with the end result and how the entire process was so seamless! At all times Tim and his team showed care and professionalism, explaining everything thoroughly and offering new ideas and guidance along the way. Having to work-in with other residents in the apartment block and working with difficult accesses etc, no challenge seemed too big for the team. Their attention to detail and final finishes are of the highest standard making our apartment such a pleasure to live in. I can highly recommend Tim and his team at Sharpe Building Solutions.

When it came time to build our dream home on the Northern Beaches we looked around for the best builder we could find. Sharpe Building Solutions had impeccable references and also had the best response to our tender. Tim Sharpe was professional, friendly and carefully made sure at each step of the process that we understood the consequences of each decision and what they would be delivering. They worked with our limited budget to maximise the result we achieved and we could not have been happier with their services. With builders in the family they commented on the quality of the build and we found their staff were both friendly and helpful. We would heartily recommend them to anyone looking to build a high quality home on the Northern Beaches of Sydney.

Tim Sharpe and his team were responsible for extensive renovations of our 1904 weatherboard cottage in Fairlight from February to September 2016. During this time we found Tim and his team easy to communicate with and very accommodating with our requests. The work carried out was of a very high quality. Tim was always willing to offer alternate solutions and suggestions along the way to ensure we were happy with the end result. His Team were hard working, thorough, very pleasant to deal with and were always respectful of us and our neighbours. We would not hesitate to recommend Sharpe Building Solutions.

Tim Sharpe and his team did major renovations at our property in Pymble six years ago. This involved building a new second story living space, demolishing/replacing an existing building, and installing a state of the art drainage system. The 18 month job went without any major problems. Tim’s group managed all the various stakeholder relationships masterfully.
The real measure of a builder is how his projects stand the test of time. I am happy to report that the quality of the work has been born out over the years and we have had no complaints at any stage. We strongly recommend Sharpe Building Solutions for a professional and stress-free building experience.
Tim and his team are fantastic. An absolute pleasure to work alongside, and deal with on a day to day basis. We had them in our house every day for 7 months. We miss them now they are gone. The standard of work is of the highest quality and they have some great ideas to incorporate into the design as well – they are not just builders. The sub-contractors they use are also fantastic. His service level is exceptional. I can’t recommend him highly enough.
Like anyone facing an extensive renovation for the first time, we were nervous and interviewed a number of builders and sought recommendations from many people. From the outset your organisation and attention to detail at the quote stage helped you to stand out from other builders.
Because we conducted our renovation without an architect past the council approval stage, we wondered how to manage the work and whether it would all come together, given the lack of a very detailed up-front spec. Yet your project management skills, eye for good design and very pragmatic approach meant that we were in good hands throughout.
Above all, I really appreciated your honesty, and your authenticity. You did what you said, when you said. You communicated clearly and thoughtfully throughout. For all these reasons I’ve been happy to recommend you to work colleagues and to neighbours.
