Robert Street, Mangawhai


Coastal Bliss….

This 1970’s home is situated in Northland, in the beautiful Mangawhai. It was built by the current owner’s uncles and has been in the family ever since. Mangawhai is a special place to this family and is one of their preferred holiday destinations, now with the owners being permanent residents they decided it was time to modernise this well-built, well-loved family home.

Their goal was to make their home more practical for beach life as well as giving them more space for when the extended family visits over summer and to make sure it was going to last for years to come.

We were approached by the homeowners who had only carried out one renovation before but not to this scale, so we made sure that we explained everything in detail and helped answer any queries or concerns they had right from the start. We could see their vision and we really wanted to help them achieve this and the end results shows just that.

The home was fully gutted and renewed along with some alterations to the internal layout to achieve open plan living and better indoor-outdoor flow.

We thoroughly enjoyed working with this lovely couple, and we are extremely pleased with the finished result. It was great to carry out this type of project and see the transformation from old to new.

“It was a pleasure to work with Daniel and Michelle, they ensured we were well informed on a regular basis about any developments or changes throughout the renovation. Daniel is a meticulous builder, his attention to detail could not be faulted and we are extremely happy with the final outcome. Their recommended sub-contractors also did a great job.
Daniel and Michelle are a friendly and approachable team showing commitment to the timeframe specified in our contract. Communication was exceptional keeping us informed throughout the whole project. Michelle did a great job project managing with regular updates of when the various tradesmen were scheduled and preparation of clear invoices.
We would not hesitate to recommend Fogden Builders to anyone looking to build or renovate and we can’t thank them enough for making our 1970’s home come alive again.”
