NEW BUILDS

Yes, we are a Registered member of Master Builders. We can offer a Master Build 10 year Guarantee for the unlikely event that something did go wrong with your home build. Registered Master Builders will help resolve any issues and have helped protect more than 140,000 homes in New Zealand.

We offer three main contracts: Fixed Price Turn Key Contract (our most common); Labour Only; Managed labour Only.

Turn Key Contract: We sit down and price your home off the conversations we’ve had about your requirements. We do our best to ensure Provisional Costs are kept to a minimum. -This can be things such as your kitchen cabinetry, floor coverings or tapware choices; decisions that may not be known at the time of signing your contract.

This answer understandably varies house to house. Building time depends on variables including the size, type of home, and the site it’s going to be built on. Once we have a set of plans we would do a build schedule specific to you. This would include a timeline of what to expect. If there are any foreseeable changes to this, you’ll be the first to know.

Bryce is the Director and lead builder on all our sites. We take pride in knowing that Bryce will be there from day 1 of planning to handing over the keys and anywhere in between. This ensures a seamless process and takes the stress out of worrying who to contact.

Our availability depends on what projects we are working on at the time! We suggest giving Bryce a call on 027 358 9671 or sending an email through to discuss what you are wanting. From there we can advise an estimated start date. We do our best to try and work with you and your schedule where possible as we take pride in you considering us for your projects.

Check out the BDC New Build Process  to help you understand our building process a bit better. We have also created a downloadable checklist you can use as a little guide for things to remember when building a new home. Alternatively give Bryce a call on 027 358 9671 and we can discuss your future plans and start the ball rolling.

GENERAL

As Registered Master Builders we can offer a 10 year Guarantee for all our work including home renovations and alterations. Registered Master Builders will help you resolve any issues and have helped protect more than 140,000 homes in New Zealand.

We are based in the Matamata Piako area (Morrinsville, Te Aroha, Matamata), and we travel to the wider Waikato region. If your project falls outside of these areas please contact us, we are more than happy to discuss your needs.

We need to discuss in detail what you are wanting to achieve in order to understand whether or not it would require a council consent. We offer free onsite visits when pricing jobs to ensure we have the full picture of your requirements and requests.

We try our very best to enable you to live in your property while we renovate it. We pride ourselves on a clean, safe worksite and understand this could become a costly project if you were having to live elsewhere. However, it depends on the scope of work you are requiring. You must have running water, power and toilet facilities and this may not always be possible depending on the job.

Our compact homes can be built in as little as 12 weeks. Most of our Compact Homes will require a building consent, as once these are connected to services such as sewage and water/ electrical supply they become classed as a dwelling and your local council would require a resource consent. All of our compact homes come with a Code of Compliance certificate making it easier for the buyer to apply for resource consent with their local council.

Yes definitely! If required, we arrange contractors to transport the home via truck and transfer it on-site using a hiab/crane.

Transportation costs vary depending on location and site.
