Peter Jones Constructions

Peter thought this would be a great opportunity to give you a snap shot of the building process over the next few months on one of our homes we have recently started.  Stay tuned for lots more facebook posts as the home progresses – below is a summary of these posts to date.

This stunning four bedroom house which we have just started, has a great media room. The dining room leads from the kitchen to the alfresco which overlooks the backyard. The living room also has great views of the backyard.
