Our established position means we have the same buying power as big housing companies and to top it all off, our homes are covered by the NZ Certified Builders 10 Year Guarantee.

So, whether you are planning to build a new home or redesign your existing home, there’s a good chance you’ll find something you like amongst our huge range of house plans.
