Our Process

A Unique Process
Building or renovating your home is one of the biggest challenges you’re ever likely to undertake. It can be an exciting time too! Tell us what you want and, from before you sign up to the moment you step through your new front door, we’ll be beside you every step of the way. North Homes’ design and build process epitomises Kiwi values: affordability, flexibility, innovation and quality. You can be assured that our strong track record of using best practices, high quality brands and reputable trade partners will meet your expectations. Attention to detail all wrapped up with a ‘can do’ attitude!

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!
