We’re more than home builders. We can design for your dream.

Building can be a daunting journey. We’re here to make it fun by taking care of the entire process – from concept to key handover.

Whether it’s your first home or you’ve built before, the experience should be as stress-free as possible. That’s where we come in.

Right from the start, your wishlist and lifestyle comes first. You are never “just another build”, you are part of our First Homes family. At every step of the building process you’ll be met with transparency, time to explore your options and personalise every detail, problem solving, and big smiles.

We have answers.

Read through the FAQs below to see if we’ve answered your question.

Why are First Homes more affordable than other

We are affordable – but not the “affordable housing” you’re used to. At First Homes affordable means high quality, the ability to personalise your plans and no skimping on anything. It’s our 20+ years of relationships and tight-knit, experienced team that means we can make your home fit your budget, without cutting any corners.

Do I need to use one of your plans?

Not at all! You’re welcome to choose a plan as it is, use it as a starting point and personalise it, or we can work with our architects to design an entirely new plan for you.

When is the best time to talk with you about building?

It’s never too soon to start the building conversation. No matter what stage you’re at – from looking at subdividing, determining your budget, or putting together quotes for home loan applications – we can help.

Do you only build First Homes?

We build all homes, from first homes to investments to supplementary accommodation. We pride ourselves in being able to help people who may have had trouble building otherwise, such as tricky sites, affordability, or other roadblocks.

Where do you build?

With our offices based in Mount Maunganui we offer full design and builds in the Bay of Plenty and Waikato. Looking to build elsewhere? No worries. With our kitset and transportable homes  we can cover all of New Zealand.
