About 2 years ago my wife and I purchased a 1880,s cottage in Hahndorf. As with most cottages of this age it required a lot of restoring. Architect John Ashcroft from BEYOND INK designed an extension that blended sympathetically with the cottage.
John recommended Matthew as a builder. Living in the cottage for the whole project was an enjoyable experience even though the weather was against us at times.
As the project developed the coordination between trades ran seamlessly. Matthew and his crew finished the main build in 6 to 8 months.
Mathew personally laid a concrete slab, first and second fix carpentry. He erected the hebel panelling walls and plastered the outside hebel, he laid the spotted gum flooring in the main room, tiled floors and renovated 3 bathrooms. Built a bespoke bookcase and window seat in the nook.
We highly recommend Matthew Rohde as a builder.
If anyone wishes to contact us to discuss or inspect Matthews finished work, please contact us through Matthew.

To Graham, Matt and Chris,
My heartfelt thanks for the wonderful job you have done to turn my house into something that I feel really thrilled and excited to now call my home.
It is something that i have look forward to for quite some time and now enabled me to move on with my life.
Your input, suggestions and can-do attitude have been much appreciated as have been the workman ship exhibited throughout the whole process.
The house looks great and I look forward to finishing the final stage in the not too distant future.
I would whole heartedly recommend your services to anyone thinking of making any home improvements.
An extra thanks to Matt for completing the extra tiling, its so nice to have those floors finished!
Thank you again,
Just wanted to thank you and your team for the great work you’ve done on my house extension in Bridgewater. When I started I was a bit unsure of what I wanted, I just knew that I wanted an extra bedroom with ensuite and a larger lounge. You were amazing in understanding my needs and working out the best building configuration to keep the costs down. During the build, your crew especially Matt helped me with decisions around a myriad of items, such as feature tiling, laundry space, lighting etc, things I hadn’t even thought about! I was also able to get some out of scope work done for a very reasonable extra cost. Your team also made sure work progressed at a good pace and was completed within agreed timelines.
Thanks so much for helping me achieve what I wanted in my house renovation. From the initial site inspection, through to submission of building plans and then the built itself, your team kept up an amazing work schedule and delivered excellent attention to detail. The results speak for themselves. Everyone who visits is complementary about the work and I would certainly recommend you to anyone looking for extensions or renovation to their home.

We’ve lived in Strath for 25 years and with a growing family, we decided to extend our living areas by using more of our roof space. A search on the internet for an Adelaide Hills building specialist in home improvements, led us to Graham Rodhe of Kingsgate Homes.
At our first meeting, Graham presented a no-nonsense, down-to-earth, honest and friendly approach. He listened and understood what we were after, provided us with further suggestions and a no obligation quote. We were totally satisfied and looked no further!
From the beginning, the plans, council approval and every other detail was handled by Kingsgate Homes. They created more than just a build, they created a work of art. You wouldn’t know the new addition was built 18 years later! Not only did the work exceed our expectations, but our final payment was adjusted to reflect savings – less scaffolding was required, electrical work cost less, … a very pleasant surprise.
Kingsgate Homes, a family affair, proved the right choice for us, from the beginning to the end, Graham and his sons Chris and Matt took care of everything and produced an excellent result. For help, advice and hassle free professional work, we highly recommend Kingsgate Homes, Adelaide Hills builders, Graham and his sons – Matt, Chris and Michael.
