Rob is the Builder/Manager of Portrait Custom Homes
Click above to listen to Rob Hyde talk about this North Fremantle Custom Home build.
This North Fremantle house is a protected heritage building. We completely rebuilt the inside and refurbished the front facade, including the original jarrah board work. A brand new, modern home made from an old Fremantle house.
They made the original facade from jarrah boards. The boards were removed, stripped, and repainted. A lot of the old paint was lead-based, so the stripping process had to be done properly.
Our Very Happy Clients say…
After months of research we appointed Portrait Custom Homes to build our new family home in Applecross. From the start Rob had a very competitive, open book approach to pricing and an exemplary work ethic in keeping the job on track. Rob’s sound technical knowledge and open communication have made dealing with Portrait Custom Homes a pleasure. We moved into our new home on time and we are extremely proud of the quality and workmanship.
We bought an old 2 storey home that we seriously considered knocking down to start again. We met with Rob Hyde, who was able to see out the box and how we could achieve all our goals by altering the existing structure. We are delighted with the result, the turnaround time was much quicker than starting again and we had a lot more budget to invest into the finishes than we would have if we had started from scratch…”
We met with and got quotes from a few builders recommended to us by our architect. At our first meeting with Rob Hyde, we immediately felt comfortable working with him – he was thorough, knowledgeable and transparent. We can only say that he has a great team of people, trades and suppliers that he works with. The quality of finish is outstanding and our building experience could not have been better.
