Sorrento Building Company


Not often do you see a builder with a shop.
This one is in the small shopping strip at Portsea opposite the Portsea Hotel.
The unusual advertising banner with embossed motifs of chickens, pineapples, an onion and a flower (plus the creeper over some of it) attracted my attention.
Suggesting a down-to-earth, homely builder?
(Strange - The only internet listing for this builder is at Rosebud West, further north on the peninsula!)

A homely shopfront
Quells any anxieties
Of buy and sell times

Love the windows with the arches above them. Such a nice office. Your capture in black and white is so nice. Happy New Year. genie

It sounds like the sort of company I would do business with -
Unpretentious & honest. It's amazing the impression we form just from signage!
Wishing you a wonderful safe &healthy 2012

Happy New Year Gemma, peace and prosperity for 2012.

The storefront is quite attractive...especially considering that builders often use industrial-style offices!
