“I would highly recommend building with Paul James and his team from 33 South.We built through the 2020 covid crisis in WA and Paul was able to deliver our house on time and on budget through very trying circumstances.The quality of our home and the ability to interact directly with the builder resulted in our home being finished to a very high standard with changes made along the way posing no problems for us or Paul.Paul’s knowledge and can-fix-it attitude made our experience one we would not hesitate to undertake again."

Mornay & Vanessa De Villiers - METRICUP

“We were very happy with the build quality. 33 South did really well with keeping the site in a reasonable state (very tidy for a building site), good control of materials was also evident with minimal wastage. We found Paul was always willing to listen to our comments, he had some great input and was able to discuss matters with a cool head. Paul did very well in advising when things were not going according to plan. Paul was open to suggestions and was able to move forward in a positive way. One instance in particular comes to mind, when the sliding door sill height did not meet our expectation. A quick resolution was reached with a negotiated outcome on the cost. We were appreciative of all the effort that went in to completing the home in time for my parent's visit and the flexibility that was shown when it came to handover with myself away for work. In short! Would we recommend 33 South Building? Yes we would and have already."

Pamela & Scott Hampson - COWARAMUP

“Once upon a time not so long ago, a man by chance, met with Paul James from 33 South Building Group. Very excited, the man told his woman and a meeting was arranged with Paul. Now, the woman and man both became excited as they had found a trustworthy builder, with the capability and experience that would ensure the delivery of a well-built home within stated budget and time frame. In due course, with minimal fuss, not only was a lasting friendship established, a beautiful home was handed over to the satisfied couple.”

Linda French - COWARAMUP

“Paul James of 33 South Building has just completed two homes for me in Cowaramup. Both are two story 4 x 2 with library, large 2 car garage and inner workshop/storerooms. The week of completion one was rented. Paul was very patient and polite throughout the entire process, we enjoyed working together on the project and I admired his meticulous eye for detail as I am usually called too fussy it was refreshing to have a builder on the same wavelength and ensuring all his trades follow suit. The finish to the homes was nothing short of immaculate. Paul was always honest and straight forward which I found reassuring. I would build with Paul again.”

Pat & David Battye - DUNSBOROUGH

“In our late 70’s and building for the first time in Australia, we wanted an easy build with a reputable builder, who would be easily accessible at all times and with whom we felt comfortable discussing the many varied details of our build. We decided on Paul James and '33 South Building Group' and he more than exceeded our expectations. Not only did Paul build us a lovely home, but also we always got a cheerful greeting during our countless telephone calls and he took great trouble to see that even the smallest details we requested was complied with. We lost count of the times Paul met with us to ensure we were all on the same wavelength. We really enjoyed our building experience. Thank you Paul.”

Nigel & Sue Wake - YALLINGUP

"Building our Yallingup home with Paul James was a very pleasurable experience. We were extremely happy at the end of the project but a little unhappy that the process was over as the journey had been so good. We were living 300 kms from Yallingup whilst we built. Paul was an excellent communicator and if issues arose (as they invariably do) they were always resolved quickly and without heartache. We cannot fault his workmanship or his choice of tradesmen. Without hesitation we recommend 33 South Building Company and Paul as an excellent choice for anyone considering building in the area".

David Collins - DUNSBOROUGH

"We built with Paul James (33 South Building Group) and have not regretted it for one moment. Wendy and I had spent a lot of time with sales representatives for project builders and while they were all very helpful and obliging we came to realise a couple of important differences between the project builders and small independent builders; 1. The salesperson for a project homebuilder does not supervise the project. 2. Your contract is managed by office staff you may meet only briefly 3. Project builders, by their very business model, cannot be flexible, changes can be very expensive. However, an independent builder like Paul James is everything in the business. He is the salesperson, the builder and the supervisor. His 20 years experience in the building industry gave us the confidence and his personal involvement gave us the control and flexibility to design our own house for a better than comparable price. The quality of Paul's tradespeople was first class and the supervision attentive, detailed and consistent. We both thoroughly enjoyed the experience and would not hesitate to recommend Paul James of 33 South Building Group to anyone considering building in the southwest."

Janice & Graeme Davies - DUNSBOROUGH

“33 South Building Group built our holiday home on Old Dunsborough and we are very pleased with the whole process and more importantly the end result. The home was completed ahead of schedule and finished to a very high standard. Paul’s personal involvement and ready accessibility during the whole build played an important part in making the overall building experience a successful and positive one. Paul is very flexible and accommodating, constantly kept us in the loop and provided options on how to improve the final outcome along the way. The quality of the finished product is excellent and we would certainly build with 33 South and Paul again and would recommend them to anyone considering building a new home. They are a great company to deal with.”
