Brian Pimm willingly took on the challenging role of renovating and extending my 26 year old bathroom and laundry spaces. I truly valued Brian’s ability to listen to my ideas and bring them to reality through ongoing consultation and professional knowledge. Indeed, the finished result is even better than I had initially imagined; the bathroom and laundry are a joy to use daily.
In removing my old bathroom, Brian has now increased the size of my dining room, which now connects to a garden courtyard. I have no hesitation at all in recommending the services of Simply Renovate.
Brian’s carpentry skills and broad knowledge of building are as good as they get.
Brian has done all timber construction on three building projects I have undertaken. These include two sizeable residential studios built & designed to high environmental design standards. In all my dealings with Brian he has displayed a high level of building excellence and integrity.
He has a friendly relaxed and professional manner, and is always available to assist with and suggest design improvements, which have reduced costs and created better outcomes.
I fully recommend Brian to anyone wanting to undertake a building project.

Studio in Fremantle
Simply Renovate built a studio for us in Fremantle, The property was heritage listed, built in 1897 so all the challenges of meeting Heritage Commission and Council planning requirements plus very old services added to the complexity of the build.
We were delighted with the end product but we were also extremely happy with the process. Brian is a great communicator. He regularly consulted with us and considered each step carefully, often discussing options which he thought would improve the outcome. He is a perfectionist and while he did much of the work himself, he employed experienced tradesmen for specialist tasks. These tradesmen all did work of a high standard.
We would have no hesitation in recommending Simply Renovate for similar projects.

Simply Renovate carried out a major renovation of an atrium in Orange Grove for us. The atrium was a 30 year old link between the main house and a granny flat and is 18 metres by 4 metres. The task required new timbers, recladding and replacement of box gutters which had always over-flowed and leaked. Brian viewed the job and recommended the approach, plus provided a quote.
The end result was terrific. The cladding recommended by Brian keeps the area cool, the box gutters and modifications to the downpipes has eliminated all leaking and excess water problems and the atrium is now a well-used, attractive extension to our home. The task was completed ahead of time and under budget and Brian reduced his invoice accordingly.
We would strongly recommend Simply Renovate for similar work.
I have used ‘Simply Renovate’ for several small building projects over the years. As someone who is very fussy about aesthetics, Brian has impressed me with his creativity in solving potential problems and his attention to detail. He and his associated trades people demonstrate friendliness and professionalism, leaving the job site tidy and taking great pride in the finished product. I have no hesitation in recommending ‘Simply Renovate’ to any homeowner looking to do a small addition or renovation.
We found Brian last year when looking for a builder who would help us through our major renovation as owner builders. As keen DIYers but novice (to put it kindly) builders we truly put Brian’s “owner builder friendly” assertion to the test. We were not disappointed. We have in fact been delighted in Brian and his team having now come out the other side of a brand new workshop/garage build, a re-build of an old extension, a complete re-roof and bullnose verandah rebuild. We credit the success of our project to our luck in finding Brian.

Brian did a fantastic job of turning our old asbestos garage into a beautiful studio and outdoor room for our family. He listened carefully to what we wanted and was skilled in adapting existing features and materials to meet the needs and look of the new building, which meant we kept costs down. He also understood our desire to create some character and match it with the house. He was flexible in his working methods and solved problems as they arose. He is genuine, friendly and highly professional in his manner, and finished the job well within the estimated time frame. We highly recommend him to others! ”
