Design & Build

It's important to us that your new home fits your family and lifestyle.

That's why we won't pressure you into choosing a standard, pre-built plan. Many of our clients use our library of ideas simply as a spring board to create their own floor plan and style that really suits them.

Whichever way you'd like to design your home, our expert team is here to help. Get in touch today!

Knockdown & Rebuild

Love where you live, but want a new home?

With land shortages in Auckland, many of our clients are choosing to knockdown an existing home, and build a new one in its place.

This is a fantastic way to keep your address, but live in a brand new home, that really fits your family.

We'll make it easy by managing the entire process for you. Give us a call, and let's have a chat today!

Communication & Pricing

We strive for crystal clear communication and transparent pricing, so you are always in the know.

We've always known that above all, our clients want great communication, and no surprises when it comes to pricing.

Our team uses proven systems and processes to make sure you are always in-the-know, and our pricing and specification documents ensure you know exactly what you are getting, right down to the colour of the door handle, before you sign the build contract.

Find out more about our pricing here, or how we use The Sentinel App to communicate with you throughout the build.
