You can dare to dream with Signature Homes
Your Home. Your Way. Since 1983.
If you're going to build a new home the best place to start is our home plan collections. Our house plans can give you inspiration for the layout of your new home based on your core needs - number of bedrooms, kitchen design and layout, number of bathrooms and living areas. We have plans for two to five bedrooms, single and two storeies, and a range of floor areas. Then you can take the plan and build it your way, working with our consultants to modify the plan, customise the key external visual elements, the roof style and external materials and colours.
House and Land packages take one of the hardest parts of building your dream home out of the equation - finding land. We have House and Land Packages from Northland to Otago and pretty much everywhere in between. We have secured sections with developers and matched them to the perfect plan based on the contours of the section, all you need to do is add your personal touch - internal and external colour choices, fixtures and fittings and kitchen and bathroom design. Use the filters to find your region, or search for a development you have your eye on.
We built our reputation building beautiful, unique homes for clients, and we continue to provide the most comprehensive design and build service available. Whether you have your own plans or a sketch on the back of an envelope, we can help you design and build your dream home that reflects you and makes the most out of your section and your budget.
Signature Style issue IV is available for you to order now. Shelley Ferguson has helped us out and guest edited this issue and it's our best yet. Inside, the magazine features eight stunning homes, design guides on your favourite rooms and tips and tricks for you to think about before building your new home. It's a great read.
Just satisfying our clients with beautiful homes isn't enough, our aim is to delight them with every aspect of our service and every detail of their new home, and give them peace of mind that their inviestment is protected. That's why we provide the best building guarantees in New Zealand on every Signature Home that is built, provided by an independant Guranatee Company.
Subdividing, or Knocking Down an existing building, and then building new on your property can be a great option if you have the right section.
We are experts in subdividing and can talk you through your options with respect to council requlations and zoning, particulalry in the Auckland region under the Auckland Unitary Plan. We have plans that can maximise your property value and can work with you through every step of the process, from a full Feasibility Report, finance requirements, design, council negotiations, and of course the build.
Financing your new build can sometimes be different to a standard mortgage, as there are many considerations with respect to deposit requirements (generally less than a for buying an exisiting home) timing and payments We can help talk you through your options and connect you with experts in Construction Finance.
When you are researching building a new home, sometimes you need some hardcopies for your files. We understand this so feel free to order some or our brochures and pamphlets, we will deliver them free to your home.
The Auckland Unitary Plan gives Aucklanders the opportunity to look at their existing property and assets in a different way. We can help you whether you are looking to build an additional home for your family, build as an investment, build and sell, or a mix of all three. Our Auckland Franchises can take you through every stage of the development, from design, consents, finance and the build.
