Senior Architect at HODGKISON
Thoughtful person, lateral thinker, capable manager, highly skilled, preventive strategies and very detailed and considered craftsmanship. Every architect needs a Kane builder!
Feel free to call for a reference.
To call Kane Harrison a ‘builder’ is to severely understate his craftsmanship and vast range of talents and skills.
His flexibility to work with and around a very difficult design concept, his practical yet aesthetically-pleasing suggestions and his attention to detail ensured that our house was both functional and finished to the highest standards.
His integrity and commitment to the environment was clearly evident in the way he utilised the trees that had to be felled to comply with bush fire regulations. The covered walk way, wooden bench tops and ‘quirky’ letter box he crafted from the timber are among the star features of our house.
Kane is one of those highly intelligent people who is also artistically gifted so in reality he could have picked any career he chose.
It was our good fortune that he has put those considerable talents to work building not just a house, but a place we could call ‘home’. We cannot recommend Kane highly enough.

Kane Harrison was nominated to build our retirement home in Mudgee in 2014. Kane is fastidious, a good communicator, patient and interested in explaining how and why things were best approached while following the architect’s plans. His attention to even the smallest detail gave us confidence in his ability to build the home we wanted. He is passionate about wood and the finished house is a testament to his skills as a builder.
Kane is not local to the area and had to find a team locally who were capable of maintaining his high standards of workmanship. This was difficult but his patience was remarkable and he was able to gain the respect of those who worked with him.
The house is architecturally designed to capture the 180 degree views and is primarily timber, steel, a lot of glass and one wall of rammed earth.
The weather in Mudgee can be extreme but Kane kept the build going except for 3 or 4 days when the conditions became impossible so the course of the build progressed at a greater rate than it normally might have done. I have no hesitation in recommending Kane as a builder.
