Although we welcome site visits it is not always possible with busy everyday lives.

If you have any doubts we aren’t as good as we say we are then please take some time to read some great comments from past clients. Our goal at the end of any project is that you the customer will walk away feeling satisfied not just with the end product – your home, but with the entire building experience, it is one of our priorities to make sure you feel included as much as possible along the way and that the end result is just as you imagined.

Many of our jobs come through referral, which is why we would love to continue this great trend. Our mission is to become one of Northland’s preferred home building companies and we won’t get there doing sub-par work, which means you can expect the best service, professionalism and quality craftsmanship when dealing with us.

We believe in being more than tradesman and strive to be masters of our craft which is why we aim to deliver a home that you are completely satisfied with.

“We built our home with Daniel and Michelle in 2015. Daniel was involved from the very beginning, he met us on site and we discussed the things that were really important to us. We found Daniel and Michelle to be more than helpful in every way, they helped coordinate the trades that we appointed directly and stepped in when we had issues getting things done. His attention to detail is exceptional and we are delighted with our finished home. They were both on site when they said they would be and were more than happy to do those little things that we had overlooked such as extra timber for mounting televisions on. They kept the house clean and tidy throughout the build process and took time out to explain things to us and show us round when we had questions. I would highly recommend using Daniel and I would have no hesitation in using him for other projects should we decide to build again.
