We work with clients from the outset, discussing inital ideas and gaining concept drawings, so you know what the end result will look like (and cost!) at the early stages. We can help you avoid getting too far ahead with architect plans that might not fit your budget, and once you are happy with the design stage, we will take care of the council building consent processes. We then complete all of the construction work, managing the subtrades and labour.

Working with you through the design options, so that you can acheive the look and finish you desire, that also works with your existing home, is what we do best.  
 

Home Additions and Extensions 

Extending your home to add bedrooms or expand your living areas usually offers a great return on investment. With any major project, we can help you through every stage, from deciding on the best layout and design options to suit your home, to gaining building design plans and council consents.
