Design & build Your dream home

The Sentinel Homes ‘Design and Build’ approach is about giving you a home that is unique to you and your family. Designed for how you live. No cookie cutter homes around here. We can approach your project in a couple of ways:

completely custom

If you’re looking for something completely custom, we’ll guide you through the design process from floor plans to finishings - the only limit is your imagination. Bring along your ideas and inspiration and work with our team to come up with something that is uniquely yours.

Start from an existing plan

Or, perhaps you’d prefer the inspiration of one of our many existing plans? This can be the springboard from which to design your dream home. All plans can be modified in any way to suit you. Extra bedroom? Easy. Larger kitchen and living? No problem. A home office or art studio? Consider it done.

With Sentinel Homes, no two houses are ever the same!

Waikato

Nate has built and renovated his own homes and this is big factor that contributes to his belief - that well designed and built spaces enhance the lives of families. This is what he finds really exciting every time he gets to build new homes for their clients clients.

Nate is a Builder by trade, and has been building new homes for nearly 15 years, including multiple House of the Year Gold Award winning homes. Raised in Tokoroa in the South Waikato, Nate moved to Hamilton as soon as he left school and got an apprenticeship with a reputable local builder who did high end architectural homes as well as commercial construction. From there, Nate moved through the ranks of Foreman & Project Manager to managing his own business. It was during this time that Nate was able to observe what worked well between various building businesses and bring the best parts together to form his own team as Sentinel Homes. Although not on the tools day-to-day anymore, Nate loves to put his tool belt on as much as possible because of his love of building.

As well as running the Sentinel Homes Waikato Team, Nate is active within Registered Master Builders, where he has been the Waikato Branch President, served on the executive committee for 7 years, and currently works with their Policy and Advocacy team on the Residential Working Group as his way of giving back to the industry that he loves so much.  A huge mental health advocate, Nate is also a spokesperson for mental health within the building sector and has travelled NZ speaking to hundreds of business owners about looking after ourselves and our people, as well as leadership, diversity and inclusion.

Nate has two beautiful daughters who he adores, and he'll tell you that being a Dad is “the best thing ever”. He loves Hamilton and the Waikato region and loves raising his girls in NZs fastest growing city. He’d love to hear from you to discuss your building plans for you and your family.
