CHRISTCHURCH DESIGN AND BUILD GUIDE

The basics of the building process are budget, wish list and time frame. Get these basics right and you can enjoy the whole building process. We can help you from choosing a site to moving in! We can hold your hand, or even go on holiday and come back to your completed home!

All the homes we build in Christchurch are built in accordance to each client’s requirements. Every home is unique and built to the highest standards of craftsmanship. We continue to design and build a wide range of homes throughout Christchurch, whether on the flat or on the hill.

STAGE 1

PLANNING & BUDGETING

The first stage for planning a build is for us to have an initial discussion about your requirements. We can then decide on the style and scale of your house and the materials needed for it, in order to work out a budget. Your wish list is useful. (Make a scrapbook of photos and homes that you like as this will help identify your personal style)

Investing in this experience maybe the best investment you ever make.

STAGE 2

THE DESIGN

Next, you need to engage a designer. We will work with you to find a designer who can help you make your dream a reality. (You may now want to engage any specialists who’ll be able to help with the process.) We then work through the design process with you and give feedback on the drawings. We’ll explain how permits work and give you a timeframe on the design, the permits and on the actual building process.
