‘It was such an easy process for us. Paul, Chris, Corina and Talia were amazing at communicating. ‘Classics was just a great decision… we got excited to see what we could actually do and personalise ourselves rather than buying an existing home. I can’t believe we live in this beautiful house… we feel so lucky; we made the right decision. We managed to get the home we dreamed of without bursting the budget.’
"If you can do a new build, it’s a no-brainer, so all you have to do is move in and mow the lawn. Older houses will need some maintenance and repairs. With my lifestyle, I don’t want to give up my weekends doing DIY, so it’s great for me. Everything is finished, and everything works!"
"We had great support behind us from start to finish. The time with the design consultant was invaluable. It was great getting their advice and expertise, and it provided reassurance that the colours would work.
The team allowed us the flexibility to build what we envisaged and offered advice and expertise along the way."
Laying Down Strong Foundations
Our team loves nothing more than designing a home that is ‘uniquely’ you, and suited to the needs of your family, lifestyle, section and budget.
With Design & Build, you’re in the drivers seat! We can customise any of our plans to suit you, or you have the option to start from scratch. Our team will work with you to design your home, to your unique specifications. If you have plans already drawn up, we can work with those too.
What To Think About When Building A New Home
Building a new home does include quite a few important steps, but that’s why we leave you in the very capable hands of one of our expert Classic Builders Building Consultants. They will be there to guide you throughout the process, from start to finish. When you meet with them, they’ll ask you a few questions, to get an understanding of what it is you want in your home. It pays to think about particular towns or suburbs you want to live in, how many bedrooms you’ll need, and any other aspects that you would want to include.
Enjoy The Classic Builders Difference
Once you’ve got the vision, we’ll work with you to get all your ideas down, and into your final building plans. After the planning is done, our team of trades will take care of the rest! Overseen by a dedicated Construction Manager, they’ll make sure that your build is on track to be completed on time, within budget, and to the highest of standards, before our Quality Assessor does their final check to ensure every element meets your expectations. We are so proud of the work we’ve done for families across New Zealand, and we can’t wait to get you into a brand new home as well!

Process Makes Perfect
Approaching a new build project of any scale is a daunting experience. Understanding where to start, who to involve and what steps to take, it can feel complicated and overwhelming.
You may have your own plans drawn up or just have some ideas of what you like or need.
Regardless of what stage you are currently at, our team will guide you through our four-step process so you feel confident that we are in fact designing and building your dream.
Design & Build
When it comes to choosing a company to Design & Build your dream home - there's no shortage of options. But with it being one of the biggest decisions you'll probably make in a lifetime, it's important to have confidence that who you will eventually settle on will be the best for the job.
Here at Classic Builders, we take that responsibility very seriously, perhaps more than most.
