Building an architectural home in Southland 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.


Is extra space, luxury living and architectural design on your wish list? Our impressive floor plans provide examples of Build7 homes that deliver on creativity, design flair and premium finishes. From our in-house architectural designers who will custom design your concept plan and working drawings at no cost, to our experienced construction team who take care of the surveys needed, the engineering required, and everything related to the build. You can enjoy the exciting stuff like making all the fun decisions with your local interior design consultant, and we will take care of the rest.

Bespoke architectural homes throughout Southland, built by local experts and inspired by you.

We’re a national home builder designing and building bespoke homes for everyday Kiwis throughout New Zealand and now coming to Southland. Every home we build is unique and tailored to each client. We work hard at every turn to learn about you: your must-haves and wish-list. Our strong in house processes ensure that each stage of the build is transparent and well organised.  Tane and Kate are available to visit you on site and start the design process.

Each home plan we have built, is designed to the requirements of each individual client. Included with every build, is our 10 Year Master Builder Guarantee, as well as our 12 month checks. Plus with Build7 you get the support of an interior design team so as well as a designer finish on the outside, your home will feel just the way you want it to, from the moment you walk in the front door. The journey is the most important part of this for our team, so we are with you each and every step of the way to make sure your home exceeds your expectations, and comes in on time, and on budget.

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."

My experience as a qualified Interior Designer and working within the construction industry for over a decade, allows me to draw out what is important to clients, creating a really in depth brief for the build.  I love bringing their dreams into each project we work on.  Space planning and really looking at how it is used is a real passion of mine, talking to clients about clever design ideas is always exciting.
