Angus and the team at AA Macdonald worked with us right from the beginning of planning our build. The quality of workmanship is outstanding and team worked so hard in all weathers to complete a fantastic family home. Angus and Lachlan worked flexibly in close partnership with us and the architect to help us realise our vision within budget. We are delighted!

Tracy & Lou

My husband Lou and I were very nervous when we embarked on our “grand design” but having Angus and his team working closely with us made everything bearable because we were always consulted, even about the little things. Angus has a great eye for detail but is a very pragmatic partner when it comes to helping you make cost effective and informed decisions to realise your desired outcome. His gentle humour and open and honest manner filled us with confidence throughout the process. Every job that his team did for us; big or small (they built our house from the foundations up!) was done without fuss and to the highest standards and Angus takes personal pride and responsibility not just for the work itself but for the way in which it is carried out. We would definitely ask Angus for his opinion or help again on future projects and would not hesitate to recommend him to others. We like to consider him a friend instead of a contractor having completed our build experience together.

Working closely together Carpenter Oak, Roderick James Architects and a high quality local contractor (A A MacDonald) delivered our dream West Highland home on time and within budget. We couldn’t have had a less stressful or more creative client experience.
