Two customers share their experience building a family home with Metricon


We love checking in on our customers after they’ve had some time to settle into their new home. It gives us joy to hear how they are enjoying their dream home – and how they love where they live.

We recently caught up with two customers from South Australia who were building a new family home – one for a growing family and one who wanted to cater for visiting parents. Let’s hear what they had to say about their experience building with Metricon.

Jared and Sabrina

Jared and Sabrina were always told that building a home wasn’t going to be easy. However, after starting the process with Metricon, they were so happy with the result that it felt like “a dream come true.”

“Love where you live is an understatement for us. Metricon was with us every step of the way, from the first time we walked into a display to the day we received the keys,” Sabrina said.

They had a clear idea of what they wanted prior to building – a design that fit an odd-shaped block, an open plan living area and a place for Charlie, their 7-month-old, to play. They were able to tick all three boxes, with high-quality fixtures and finishes to boot.

“The attention to detail on all the finishes, even after living here for a few months, is my favourite thing about the home. There was nothing that needed to be fixed, and everything was completed to a high standard. Every trade we had onsite was experienced and professional, and we are forever grateful.”


Angelique was looking for a home that had enough space to accommodate her parents when they were visiting from regional South Australia. After searching for a home builder for over a year, she decided on Metricon. Angelique says she arrived at her decision because she was “impressed with their high-quality display homes, especially the fixtures and fittings they were offering.”

Since moving in, Angelique says, “my favourite aspect of the home is the open-plan living area because of the amount of natural light that spills in. During the day I can go without lights on at all. The second-storey caters for my parents’ bedroom and living room, which doubles as a playroom for my youngest daughter. I’m in the master downstairs where I can have plenty of peace and quiet.”

Angelique found that building with Metricon was a stress-free process. “From beginning to end, there were no real problems. If there was a change or variation, Metricon was happy to help, and they wanted to make sure I ended up with the best quality result.”

Summarising her build, Angelique finishes by saying, “I would recommend Metricon to a friend as they were very professional and had my best interests in mind. They made the experience a joyful process that I was able to enjoy with my daughter.”
