Well here we are again having another Christmas in our lovely home you built for us. The more we do around the place the more we love it.
Wishing you all a very happy Christmas with your loved one's may 2013 be a very good year to you all.
Best wishes and thank you again.
Elaine & Brian.
We have recently moved in to our New home built by "Tullipan Homes"
(Almost 3mths ago now) I wanted to write a review on Tullipan as soon as we moved in! But I thought it best to wait & give a real honest review after the “New experience” had worn off.
In the beginning we had not heard of Tullipan homes, we favored the larger builders because that was all we new? People ask me now, how we found out about Tullipan homes?
Well it was from word of mouth! Good old fashion grape vine! I just happened to play tennis with someone who built a home at Daley’s point.
Builder happened to be Tullipan, I made a phone call & the rest is history.
I still remember Mark & David standing on our land debating which side the balcony should be on, I knew then we had the right builder ! The time taken to get the design right for the block is so important & it shows now. From design to handover it was never stressful. They have always been honest & disclosed all relevant information. Everything just worked!!
There are builders who just build houses, & there are builders who have vision, to create something special for you on your block of land!! In our case the view was so important.
That to me describes Tullipan, a very in touch builder who is more interested in building a house that works for you.
It is important to understand that building a house is one experience, maintenance & warranty repairs that may be needed after the home is built is another. How well the builder responds after the house is handed over?? Let’s face it, we have all heard the horror stories after hand over from other builders about repairs or general warranty claims & the builder simply washes his hands of all responsibilities.
Usually after 3mths you really start to know your home, & because you are so excited at hand over you tend to generally miss a lot? But I can say now there wasn’t a lot to miss.
The Tullipan home stands tall on quality, but the real workmanship is in the structure of the home. There are no noises in the floors from settling timbers it’s solid & sound.
Quality, Workmanship, Design, Helpful, Honest & Professional the 6 words that comes to mind when I look back on the Tullipan experience. So we to will join the Grape vine & will spread the word.
After building a new home ask most people if they would build again? I don’t know anyone who would? But if you ask me, my answer would be; I would build tomorrow with Tullipan, without a second thought!
We absolutely love our new Home
Please thank your team David for a wonderful & exciting experience

This letter is somewhat belated, to which I apologise. It has been six months now since we moved into our home and I would like to formally thank and congratulate you and your team for delivering a truly outstanding result, on time and within a budget.
The initial design work done with Mark was invaluable. He took our ideas and sketches and created our home. I cannot speak highly enough of the design process; Mark offered practical advice backed by a sound engineering knowledge and building processes. He was also able to provide subtle inputs which whilst in isolation may have seen small at the time, have had a huge and lasting impact on the final result.
Rodney and Daniel did a fine job come construction time. From the very first day that foundations were being dug, we had 100% confidence in the process. I recall saying to my wife on that first day “thank goodness we’re with these guys and not the first builder we had engaged”, who have subsequently gone under. For us to have such a high level of confidence in your team throughout each stage of project is to be commended. The amount of organisation and control that Mark, Rodney and Daniel had over the process was first class.
Lastly, I am sure given the site complexities our project was probably referred to as the “house from hell” in your office. However at no point did I get this impression from anyone we dealt with and nothing was too difficult. We thank you for your efforts in ensuring that seemingly impassable roadblocks were cleared quickly and with little fuss. Mary’s input into the services/council issue made the world of difference.
It is to that end that I am happy to provide Tullipan Homes with my highest recommendation for any home building and design work, be it from small projects to large scale luxury residences, on the most complex of sites.
Further to our site meeting and handover today, I wish to confirm my appreciation for the excellent job carried out by Tullipan in constructing my new home at 182A Araluen Drive, Hardys Bay.
The build has proceeded smoothly and to a high standard of workmanship as every member of the Tullipan team has been very competent, easy to deal with, and eager to please throughout the entire contract period.
I will be pleased to recommend Tullipan to others.
We get so excited to know you guys are following our trip.
And we would also like to say how grateful we are that its you guys
looking after our house, with all the dramas and extra costings, we
feel we have been very looked after, which has relieved a lot of stress, that we may normally have felt, which could have altered our
awesome Family Time.
So we just want to say again to you all at Tullipan Homes, Mark David Rodney Janette & All the others who have put in so much time on our job......... THANK YOU SO SO SO SO MUCH, and may your lives be blessed with Happiness, Less stress, Occasional Holidays, (after our job),
Love & Laughter.
We really love you Guys,
Paul Tania & The Tribe xxx
Now that you have completed our house at Bonnells Bay, we would like to thank you for doing such a fine job and within the estimated time period. Every member of the Tullipan Team that we had contact with was courteous, friendly and most helpful and the whole experience was quite hassle free.
One of the main benefits of building with a family business such as Tullipan was, we found, the advantage of on going interaction that was possible. You were available to answer our questions, discuss and make changes and advise on various options. As you are aware we originally had plans drawn up by one of Sydney’s larger project home builders but lost confidence in them after passing from the initial salesman to contract staff at head office – at this point it was virtually impossible for further discussion and advice.
Mark, you designed a magnificent house on a narrow block and taking full advantage of the views. The quality and attention to detail is exceptional and we would not hesitate in recommending Tullipan Homes in future.
With very best wishes and kind regards,
Marcia and Stephen Walters
Just a quick thank you, for your’s and Tania’s assistance last night.
Once again Tullipan Homes have impressed both Sherene and I with your professionalism. Your reading of the situation and the summation by Tania ensured that our approval was secured.
Thank you again and I look forward to our on going working relationship.
Dear Dave, Mark and Rodney (& the team)
I just wanted to say a huge thank you on behalf of Brett & the family & me! We feel very lucky to have your family and team looking after us. We love our new home and we particularly love that you all seem to care so much for it as well! The guys on site have been very helpful, friendly and welcoming, its been great.
We are really excited about the new year. Thanks for giving us that.
Please pass on our best wishes for a great chirstmas and new year to all of your family and staff.

Dear David and all the Team at Tullipan.
Thanks so much for getting us into our house early. We certainly appreciate all your effort & we are thrilled with our house.
Rebecca & Scott Knowles
guys for building a fine house for us and well done getting it finished
on time. Thanks ladies for all the support work necessary.
behalf of our family I would like to thank you and your company
for the speedy completion of our Home. Also the high degree of workmanship
of all concerned in the fit out and construction. This was not just
a house but a well built Home that we can truly be proud of. I would
recommend your building expertise to anyone who desires to have
the best home in any street. Once again thank you very much.
To Tullipan Homes,
I would like to thank the Tullipan family and staff for their workmanship
and manner working together in building our home. Once again thank
you all very much.
& Sue Peppers.
you for help in fixing our small problems in our home ASAP. The
personal touch goes along way and is much appreciated. Thank you,
David, Mary, Rodney, Mark, Daniel, Malissa & Lisa,
love our new home & we just want to say what a pleasure it has
been from start to finish having you all involved in the building
of it. We wish all things in life were as hassle free and rewarding.
Thank you guys for all your hard work & dedication, the end
result says it all.
wishes, Darryl, Carolyn, Marika & Briana Rayner.
would like to take this opportunity to thank you, Mark, Personally
for helping us out from that first time we met you and you were
willing to help us with our sloping block of land and no other builders
were interested. You came up with great ideas for the floor plan
and design of our house. I would like to also thank Rodney for his
great site work and for always being more than helpful when the
house was being built. We have received a lot of favorable comments
from neighbors as well as your own sub contractors about how nice
the finished product is. We would highly recommend your company
to anyone in the future.
Doreen & Gary DeHeaure
I take this opportunity to say that all of the staff at Tullipan
Homes have been most co-operative at all times to the numerous telephone
and personal contact I have had. Not once did I get the impression
that I was a bother, even though at times they may have felt that
way. The friendly attitude and advice is received from the instant
the telephone is answered and I am always greeted with a smile.
This is very rare these days and I Know your staff have been at
a loss to understand why this matter has been dragging on. They
are to be complemented on their Knowledge and not at any time was
I treated without respect.
Barry & Connie Spence

Bryan & Cherie Martin. 27th October 2000
To David, Mark, Rodney, Daniel, Malissa and Mary....and all of
the boys that worked on our home at the various stages.
When we decided to build our new home and chose Tullipan Homes
to do the job, our friends asked us who are Tullipan Homes?
At the time we really didn't have a lot to tell them, other than the fact that
Tullipan was a local, family owned and run company, and that we felt
an immediate sense of trust and integrity from the very first meeting
with David, a gut feeling you might call it. Anyway now that our
home is complete the answer to that same question is very easy.
Tullipan Homes are the best building company on the Central Coast.
In all our dealings with the "Tullipan Family" we found every member of
the team to be straightforward, honest, very efficient, and pleasant
throughout all phases of the project. With very little building
knowledge & understanding, we felt extremely comfortable in letting
you do your respective jobs, and at the end of the day we truly
believe we reaped the rewards of letting an extremely effective
team of people do what they do better than most. The finished
product, our home, is testimony to that.
One thing that really struck us, and we would like to make
special mention of, and it was something that really encouraged
us during our visits to the site, was the quality of the various
trades that we met. But not only that, the guys that you had
working for you were all very happy and seemed to enjoy working for you.
We think this speaks volumes for the way you operate your business.
Finally, to the "Tullipan Family" we would like to extend a sincere
and warm thank you, for not only building a wonderful home, but for
making the experience an enjoyable one. We think that is the way it
should be. And on that front we know you agree.
Wayne & Samantha Robinson
PS> The newly born twins Georgia & Jack also thank you very much for their wonderful new home.
