HOUSE & LAND PACKAGES

While we do not offer house and land packages in the traditional sense, we work hard to identify existing and up coming land opportunities, and can provide assistance to people looking for investment builds, first homes, holiday houses and more standardised houses. Our architectural team, our interior design services, and the journey to completion is the same. Our hands on approach means each person who chooses to build with us is more than just a number. We are on a mission to improve all new homes, we know simple tricks that offer the feeling of added space, extra light, and modern living. We work with premium materials, and we are proud of the many examples of Build7 homes around New Zealand that use creativity and design flair to maximise views, green spaces, and varying section sizes. Find out more about our approach to house and land when you download our brochure. 

1. START FROM SCRATCH
 
We do not build the same home twice. Your plans will be customised to suit your budget, and your floor plan wish list. Starting with a blank piece of paper, the experienced Build7 team will work with you to understand your objectives; what you like, what you don't like, and what you will not compromise on.
2. OUR DESIGN TEAM
 
Following your discussions with the local Build7 team, your design brief will be sent off to our in-house architects, based in our Construction Office. With your budget in mind, a floor plan is put together for you. 
3. BACK TO YOU
 
This is the exciting part. We present you with a concept based on your requirements, and your section. After a few changes here and there, it's back to the design team to bring your plans to life with a real look render of your proposed home. 
4. PRICING AND SPECIFICATION
 
You have seen the plans, and the renders showing you exactly what your home would look and feel like. Now it's time for specifications and pricing so you can work out how much you will have left over for any optional upgrades to fixtures, fittings, landscaping and furnishings.
5. GOING TO CONTRACT
 
Only once you have agreed on the plan and seen the final list of specifications, and all pricing, will your plan go to the next stage. Build7 are so confident in our transparent process that we don't require any payment for your design stage, instead we focus on creating a house that will really work for you.  
6. BREAKING GROUND
 
When your deposit is paid, the Build7 Construction Office will become your main point of contact throughout the process. Keeping you informed and updated, they will project manage the entire build so you can enjoy the fun parts like working with your interior design team, while they take care of the rest. 
7. MOVE IN DAY
 
"I can't describe to you what that feeling was like. After weeks visiting the site and seeing the final stages come together it seemed like everyone was racing to the finish line while we waltzed through choosing what colour rugs and cushions we wanted. The whole process was completely different to what I had expected, it was actually really fun. We were both grateful to have the support, and excited by the level of enthusiasm going into our project from all corners. Thank you so much for helping us realise this goal, and creating a home for us to live in that exceeds all our expectations. I highly recommend Build7, from our first meeting, until move in day, and beyond that, we have been overwhelmed at the genuine level of service and care that the team has shown us." 
Katie Walsh - Build7 Client 

Building an architectural home doesn't need to be an expensive and drawn out process. Our team of in-house architects work with you to create a custom floor plan. With our in-house architects and our construction team working in the same office, it provides tangible benefits our clients.

When you decide to move the position of a door or change the size of a window, there can be an immediate discussion around the impact that has on engineering and on costs, which can save a lot of back and forth!

The construction team know what materials are readily available right now, so while your neighbour waits for his cladding to show up, we can ensure your home is designed with premium materials that are not going to hold up the process.

Communication is so important for the success of any build project and having the team together in one office means that we can manage timeframes and maintain regular and up to date communication with all our clients.


Nick knows each corner of this region very well and he loves working in his own big beautiful backyard. His passion is to help everyday people understand what is possible through creative design and helping to create architectural homes that are on budget and on time.
