Working with Paul, Lisa and the team at Ronald Young was a great experience. When building a house you get told of people’s nightmare experiences, however we only experienced professionalism, positive solutions and over all had fun! They guided us through masses of red tape, held our hand through each stage and delivered us our dream home. I would have to completely agree with their statement “constructing homes, building friendships”. I would recommend the team to anyone wanting to build, they’re wonderful to be aligned with!

From design to completion the staff at RY Builders were always helpful, friendly and courteous.

We were included all through the design process and the choosing of fittings, always in an extremely friendly manner. We had loads of support along the way.
The completed home is solidly built from the best materials and is a credit to the tradesmen who worked on it. Attention to detail is evident throughout.

RY Builders built our home on time and on budget and we are very happy to recommend them to anyone looking for a quality home from a quality builder.

My wife and I engaged Ronald Young & Co Builders to construct our new home in Tranmere during 2015.

From the initial conversations to the design work, construction and fit out we found Paul, Lisa, James and all the staff very professional . Their workmanship was second to none and all the different sub-contractors were hand picked by them to give outstanding results.

I have recommended Ronald Young & Co Builders to my family, friends and clients in the past and have had no hesitation in using them again to start construction on an investment property this year.

Michael & Julie

The amazing team at Ronald Young helped us build a house and a home.

The quality of the finished product is fantastic but the biggest plus was how helpful, patient, positive & easy it was to communicate with all the staff at Ronald Young. They made what could be a very stressful process exciting & as easy as possible, from the staff at reception to the Boss! This was particularly so when we had deadlines to meet in order to receive the first home builders boost.

In 2013 we decided to build a new home on our block in Richmond.
Peter and I approached Ronald Young and consequently met with Paul Burnell & James Collins.
We were aware through some friends that Ronald Young had a team of quality tradesmen and we were aware how important these people are when building a home.
James was able to incorporate our ideas into a design and with his input we were delighted with the end result. We found that if we wanted to make alterations during the build nothing was an issue.

We were able to choose our products and trades people which resulted in the quality home we live in today.
Our relationship with all the staff concerned made the whole experience a great pleasure.
We would definitely choose Ronald Young if we ever built again.

After finding the perfect block of land, there was no question other than to build with Ronald Young. During the course of my employment I have worked closely with several builders; Ronald Young’s integrity, ethics, communication and workmanship was notably superior to everyone else.
I had done some initial research online finding the style of home that would suit my block. At my initial meeting with Paul and James I showed them a picture of the style of home that I wanted. We discussed my requirements and I left it with James, to design the floor plan. I was amazed that James was able to design what I wanted without any alterations apart from room sizing. The process was seamless.

Brendan the Building Supervisor communicated with me throughout the building process and explained what was happening at every stage. They were flexible, responsive and supportive of variations. The workmanship of the home was of an excellent standard and I couldn't be happier with the way it turned out.



We decided to build a home that we designed and being first time builders we were certainly raw in our experience. Paul and his wonderful team made the entire undertaking very enjoyable. From the time we walked in the door we were welcomed and it felt like we were dealing with old friends rather than a business.

All the people we dealt with along the way (administration, design, foreman and tradesmen) have been friendly and positive and it is obvious to us that they have been hand-picked with customer satisfaction in mind. Communication is clearly a demand that Paul places a high emphasis on as we were kept constantly informed and any queries were responded to in a timely and professional manner. In the end it was the attention to detail and their desire to meet our every whim and even some last minute change of minds that really struck a chord with us, and the comments we are now getting from family and friends re-affirms our satisfaction. Looking for a builder that will guide you through the process and deliver A1 quality, look no further… Thankyou Ronald Young.

Darren & Sharon

It is a great pleasure to be able to say that you and your team have made this build of our home one of the best experiences. From the beginning, in the design of our home, you and your team have been friendly, approachable, and very happy to assist us with any questions or concerns that we may have had. We saw that you always worked to getting the best price for any of the costing process. We always felt comfortable to call or come and see you with concerns or questions during the build process. Once again Paul, Thank you and all your team for making the build of our new house such an easy and pleasant journey, we would be happy to recommend anyone to come to you for the build of their new home.
Jenny & Alex

When looking back on our home building experience the following words come to mind, understanding, caring, helpful and above all professional. From our very first meeting with the team we were put at ease and skilfully guided through the entire design process and nothing was ever too much to ask... And there were many, many, many requests! As construction began, the professionalism we first encountered in the office continued when dealing with the tradesmen; their attention to detail, workmanship and customer care was second to none. We could go on, and on, and on, but suffice to say that even us 'Whinging Poms' can find absolutely nothing to complain about. Anyone looking to build their dream home should look no further than the Corner of Collins and Harrington Streets, Hobart.
Sue, David & Loren

Who would ever have thought that building a house would be stress free and enjoyable?
Well that is what is was for Andrew and myself, thanks to Ronald Young Builders.

From the very first visit with Paul and James to the final handover with Paul, Brendan & Nigel we were impressed by their friendliness and relaxed manner, at the same time being very professional.

Andrew and I would not hesitate in recommending Ronald Young Builders to anyone, they are a fantastic Company to deal with and we would personally like to thank everyone involved for making our first building experience FUN and UNFORGETTABLE.

Leonnie & Andrew

We appreciated the professionalism of the administration staff and the dedication of the contractors who were happy to chat to us about the progress on a day to day basis. It was the commitment of workers like the roofing fellows who worked on a Sunday to finish a job so the next stage could start. The tiler was also on site for a couple of Saturdays to ensure his part of the build was completed on schedule. Our rapport with the builder/carpenter team enabled us to believe that our developing home would be a success.

We have a home that we are extremely proud of and look forward to enjoying many decades of family fun and laughter. Thank you, Paul and the team at Ronald Young & Co for your professionalism and passion.

If you’re in the market for a new home, we highly recommend discussing your plans with Paul and the team at Ronald Young & Co.

Matthew & Tammy

To Paul and his wonderful team, we thank you so much for our gorgeous home you built for our family at Old Beach. We just love it so much, and are to happy with the outcome. Very highly recommended.

As first time builders and although we had undertaken quite a bit of renovating over the years, we were not sure of the processes involved in a complete build. As we had a design and vision of our own that we had our hearts set on, to suit the site and the way we wanted to live within that environment, we had looked around at a few building companies. We also asked our friends and work colleagues for builder recommendations and Ronald Young Builders came as highly recommended. The after sales service and attention to detail to finish our beautiful home, has allowed us to be reassured that our home will bring us pleasure for many years and the quality of the work was exemplary.
John & Angela

Our family including daughters have used Ronald Young Builders on three separate occasions over the last 15 years and it is therefore no surprise that we chose them on this occasion for what we expect will be our final build. Now in our retirement years we had specific housing needs for the future and we were thankful for the design work undertaken by Ronald Young in order to achieve these needs. Our need to have level access from all exits in our home, spacious bathrooms with safety features and wider entry doors / hallways were all met within the building project. Our home is not large but we were able to build with three large bedrooms, study and a good size open plan living space including great kitchen. We were impressed that Ronald Young listened carefully to what we needed from the outset and we are therefore very happy with the final design and build.

Final cost of home came in on budget although we spoilt ourselves with some extra trimmings such as double glazing, external heritage stone blocks and kitchen design. We have no hesitation in recommending Ronald Young Builders to any of our friends and of course family.

John & Val


The entire building experience with Ronald Young & Co Builders was not stressful. The whole process was smooth. Paul was knowledgeable and happy to assist me with my building enquiries and selections; and allowed for my own choices. The staff are great, and nothing is a problem. I had regular meetings on site, and all the tradesmen were professional and good to deal with. I love my kitchen.

As your first clients from Europe, we realise that our circumstances were different to most of your customers. You generously gave us time for discussion, research and decision making to construct the specification before we returned to the UK. We found it invaluable that we were permitted to visit several current Ronald Young sites during that time to obtain ideas and to see what different designs ‘felt’ like in reality.

We experienced good service from your suppliers and really appreciated sometimes having more than one option.

Once we were back in the UK, we had to trust Ronald Young to get on with the job. Contact by email, with photos, was important to us, providing reassurance that progress was being made. We were thrilled with the result when we returned to Tasmania nine months later and saw our house nearly completed.

We have already recommended Ronald Young to other people in Tasmania and do hope that we can maintain the contact and friendship with everyone in the company.

You have turned our Tasmanian dream into reality. Thank you!

Ian & Caroline


Ronald Young & Co was recommended to us by a family friend, also a builder. From the initial meeting with Ronald Young & Co we got the sense of an established, local, family run and owned business; who were listening to us. Our plans were drawn up from scratch, based upon our ideas. To finalise our plans, we had several personalised meetings with the Builder & Designer, including several meetings and phone calls. Throughout this time we found Ronald Young & Co staff to be approachable and responsive to our requests. The staff at Ronald Young promptly answered our questions and also offered useful suggestions and solutions to assist in the process.

Prior to commencement of the building stage, Ronald Young & Co talked us through what to expect, when. Having a fixed price contract assisted in budgeting and arranging finance, and allowed us to tailor our home to fit our budget. The building process itself took around eight months. During this time we were in constant contact with the Building Supervisor and during the planning stage we were kept informed with regular meetings. Paul, in particular, was excellent in resolving any questions we had. During the building stage we continued to have the opportunity to change or modify plans as we went along. It was reassuring that all the Trades people we spoke to during the building process spoke highly of Ronald Young & Co.

Having moved in last September we can say that we are very happy with our house. The overall building quality is of a high standard. It is great to be living in a house that reflects our lifestyle. We have no hesitation in recommending Ronald Young & Co to anyone considering building.
