We arrange a meeting with our director Daniel Davies who is renowned for his exceptional design skills in creating beautiful homes. We work with you, for you, to create a home around your vision. Bring with you all of your ideas, your wish list and any plans you may have sketched, and Daniel will then draw up a concept plan for you.

Once you’re happy with it, it then goes to a working drawing, as you crystallise and fine-tune your plan, shaping it into a real live working plan, so that you create the exact home you are wanting.

Generally allow approximately 20 weeks from the time consents are finalised to the completion of your new home. Every situation is different, depending on the complexity of the home, weather variables and how quickly decisions are made including the design, product and colour choices, house size, site, costing, extreme weather conditions, building permits, and so on.

Absolutely! Davies Homes is a member of the Registered Master Builders Association. We offer an
optional 10-year Master Build Guarantee (Standard, Classic or Premium) on each home that we
build. We also personally guarantee all of our new homes.

It covers you in the unlikely event of:

1. Loss of deposit
2. Non-completion of building
3. Material, workmanship and structural cover

Absolutely. And we care way beyond the mandatory 90-day maintenance guarantee. If you have any issues with your new home, we’ll be right round to sort them for you up to one year after completion.

The cost of a home is driven by you. There are many variables that influence this, including the design, products selected, such as exterior cladding, floor coverings, lighting, appliances and so on. If you have a set budget in mind, talk to us to see what we can achieve for you.

Totally. The price we quote you is the price you pay. We provide you with very detailed specifications so that you know exactly what you are getting with your design and build. Our quote is for the entire project, with no hidden extras.

Once the concept plan has been drawn, working drawings completed and products selected, we will provide a fixed price contract for you. If you change your mind during the process and want to upgrade or change your products, then we will provide you with revised costs.

Every new home we build is overseen by the Director of Davies Homes, Daniel Davies. He is pedantic and fanatical when it comes to quality control. We have our own stringent quality checks throughout the construction process, as well as council inspections during construction and upon final completion of your new home. We also invite and encourage you to participate in quality checks.

Our design and project management team are absolute experts when it comes to advising, guiding and supporting you to make the best possible decisions throughout every phase of the design and construction process. You will be guided every step of the way.

We do it all for you. This is all part of the Davies Homes service. We try to ensure everything runs as smooth and stress-free as possible for you.

Site visits are permitted if you are accompanied by a Davies Homes staff member.

Daniel Davies oversees each build with the support of a dedicated Project Manager, keeping you in the loop every step of the way.

We use wonderful cloud-based software that allows you real-time 24/7 access to the construction timeline of your new home. Not only will this help you to understand the entire construction process, but it allows you to see what is happening, the progress of your home construction, and when you will need to have made important decisions by. 

We encourage regular catch-ups on site at your build. Your dedicated Project Manager will ensure everything is constructed according to plan and on schedule. Meetings are held at various stages throughout the build, but clients can request a meeting on site at any time if they like.

Yes. This means that we have been assessed to be competent to carry out work essential to a residential building’s structure or weathertightness. Being licensed means we must maintain our skills and knowledge.

Once the build is complete, one of our team spend a few days ensuring everything is as it should be, and undertakes any remedial work if necessary to ensure the whole house is ready to be handed over to you. From here, it is time to unlock the door of your new home and start the move into it.

If you have any other questions, please contact us directly and we’ll be happy to answer them.
