What people have been saying about Upper Level Living!




"We had such a wonderful experience with Upper Level Living (Stesco constructions), when I first started to look around for a builder I was surprised so many builders said it couldn't be done in our budget.


When Steve came out to give me a quote he came prepared with his portfolio and was able to come up with a great plan that would work for me. I am a photographer and needed a studio built onto our home. The best solution was to create a giant 6x9 metre loft on top of our house he was able to include an office and packaging room with toilet and open vanity area. Steve did up all the plans and kept me involved in the whole project from start to finish. Steve was able to work in with all my requirements for my Photographic Studio, giving me a great work space that I absolutely love. 


Thanks to the Steve and the team from Upper Level Living for doing an awesome job, I highly recommend Upper Level Living to do any extensions you might require."

"We got to know Steve through a friend, and I'm glad we did. The job was to remove two centre house posts and two garage doors to make way for a full width roller door. This required steel reinforcing beams across the openings to maintain structural integrity.


Right from the first, the job went like clockwork. If Steve said he'd be there he was. The materials arrived on time, the dumpster was there when needed and so was the bobcat and the Readymix truck. It was obvious during the project that Steve and his team took pride in what they were doing even though this job wouldnŁt have done much for their resume. Steve and his crew built a temporary wall to secure the place until the door people finished their part of the project and removed it without delay when that was done.


Their organizational skills, quality of their work and professionalism puts them way ahead of others."

"We chose Upper Level Living to build our second storey extension and could not be happier with the results. Scott and the team went above and beyond to give us our dream home at a price we could afford and after 6 months living in our newly extended house we can say with certainty that Stesco delivers a high quality product. We have received so many complements on our house and the new upper level looks like it has always been there rather than being an after-thought. Much thought was given to the materials used and the layout and we now have a home that is fantastic to live in.


There were absolutely no nasty surprises or extra hidden costs. they finished ahead of schedule with us being able to move back in before Christmas even though we had no expectations of this happening. It was such a pleasant surprise to find a real honest group of builders that turn up when they say they will be there and over deliver on everything they promise. We cannot recommend them highly enough!!"

"We recently had a big extension done to our home and we had the pleasure of having the work done by Upper Level Living (Stesco).


Our dealings with both Scott & Steve were very professional whilst we felt like part of their family. They took the time to really understand and get to know us thus we able to meet our personal requirements.


The work done by Upper Level Living was of the highest standard. They constantly communicated with us and kept us updated and if there were any issues that arose they worked with us for the best solution. We were grateful for all the care they put into our home and worked around our family as we were still living in our home at the time of the construction.


We would highly recommend anyone who is considering any building construction to get Upper Level Living to do the work."

"Our Queenslander workers cottage was beautiful but with 3 bedrooms and 1 bathroom way too small for our growing family. We decided to renovate in two phases. Phase 1 an extension out the back which we worked on with an Architect and Phase 2 a build in underneath. The two phase resulted in a 4 bedroom, 3 bathroom house with a large rumpus room for our children. After conversations with a lot of builders we chose Upper Level Living because Steve took the time to really understand our priorities, making suggestions on how we could achieve what we wanted to within the budget we had. He was honest enough to tell us when he thought the direction was going to cause future problems and creative enough to come up with solutions.


With Phase 2 we didn't bother with an architect and instead relied on Steve's draftsman capabilities with just as good results. Doing a renovation is tricky, time-consuming and requires more thought than I ever anticipated but I think we couldnŁt have had a smoother operation than we did with Stesco. The team were friendly, professional, tidy, easy to talk with, highly skilled and took pride in the work and the result they created for us. We walk around our house today, very happy with the outcome."

"Our experience with Upper Level Living (Stesco) was a very positive one. They are efficient and effective with their work and the results speak for themselves. They are hands-on and communicated well to ensure that we understood how the job was progressing and provided suggestions on how we could improve on the original plans. this was invaluable for us as we managed to avoid an outcome that we wouldn't have been happy with unless they had stepped in. The Stesco team are a friendly group that we enjoyed having onsite and they were also very respectful of our privacy. We would recommend their work to potential clients.

"Dear Steve and all the gang


This is a very sincere 'thank you' for all your work that was put into our Deck. We absolutely love it and cannot express how much we appreciated all the effort and time spent on making something so very special for us, not to mention the respect paid to our scottish heritage.


We wish you all, and your families, the very best for whatever the future brings."


Good luck and best wishes

"I have used Stesco Constructions (Upper Level Living) on three occasions, twice at home and once for our workshop office. They did a great job of enclosing our entertainment area and also renovating our kitchen and living areas. I have found Steve to be very helpful and prompt with whatever I have requested from him whatever the size of the job. They did a excellent job of finishing off the little things as well as leaving the work area very tidy and clean. I would not hesitate in recommending Stesco for any construction work you may require."
