About North Homes

About Us

North Homes is a forward-thinking company that delivers a complete range of residential property development services from new home builds to housing renovations and project management. The company’s founder and Managing Director, Philip Taylor BE (Canterbury), has over 25 years’ experience in the Auckland residential market. His background in Civil and Structural Engineering offers you the unique opportunity of obtaining sound technical and design advice from the outset. Good design minimises your siteworks and foundation costs so you’ll have more of your budget to spend on the exciting bits: your kitchen, bathrooms, outdoor areas and landscaping. The North Homes team of dynamic tradesmen, architects, engineers and suppliers has been hand chosen by Philip for their commitment to delivering you with the quality and attention to detail you deserve. We also have a unique quantity surveying system to provide you with an accurate budget – there’ll be no surprises with your pricing!

Leading the North Homes team is a privilege and I am excited every day to see our clients' dreams achieved.

Our Unique take on the Building Process

  • Design
  • Contract
  • Construction
  • The ideas and planning phase

    This is the fun part when we hear your “wish list” and what’s important to you. Our experience and expertise will help thrash out the details and customise a design that suits your lifestyle, site and budget. We’ll work closely with leading architects and draughts people to bring your design to life.

    You’ll also meet the colour consultant, design your kitchen and bathrooms, plan your electrical layout and choose your flooring. We’ll investigate the best eco-friendly options for you for heating, air conditioning and solar energy, plus anything else that is important to you. We’ll connect you with our preferred suppliers who we know and trust.

  • The technical stuff

    This is when we arrange the engineering and commission the working drawings. North Homes will act as your agent to organise your building consent and, if necessary, the resource consent. Your contract will be based on the Registered Master Builders Association Residential Building Contract.

    You’ll also receive the 10 year Master Build Guarantee, so you can have complete confidence and peace of mind.

  • Bringing it all together

    This is when your new home comes to life. After the earthworks and foundations, we’ll stand the frames and put on the roof. Roof shout time! Once your home is weather-tight, all the interior design flair starts to take effect. This is where you’ll come to appreciate our quality workmanship and attention to detail that makes your home uniquely yours.

    North Homes takes care of all the Local Authority council inspections and arranges the Code of Compliance Certificate.

    Welcome to your new home – it’s time to move in!

We Work With Trusted Suppliers

Another key to a unique home is working with suppliers and trades that deliver quality and value on time. North Homes has chosen reliable people who we trust. You will get the benefit of their commitment to good advice and quality workmanship. These really are guys who turn up when they say they will!
