Custom Builds


When you come to ZB Homes, you can rest assured that your new home design will be distinct and individual. We begin from scratch – we do not use set home plans. Our experienced team also provides as much or as little guidance as you need so if you aren't sure what you want, we'll help you take the next steps. And if you already know the way, we'll let you run wild in our showroom/design centre.

Our showroom/design centre in Te Awamutu provides you with a visual measure of what is possible for your new home. A massive design space, you have the opportunity to come and select all the finishes for your future home – from choosing your cladding, window joinery, kitchens, and bathroom products, right through to carpets and paint colours. We also have a full kitchen and bathroom on display.

So jot down some notes and let us know what you like – It's all about taking what you like and enjoy and turning it into a reality. After taking into consideration your budgetary requirements and design preferences, your customised house plan is created by a qualified architect. This plan reflects your wants and needs. It is the blueprint for your home.

Upon finalising working drawings and obtaining Council consent, we begin the construction phase with professional builders and contractors who complete your build.

At ZB Homes, quality construction and delivering on time is our focus.

Where to begin? Here is our step by step process - efficient yet flexible, we make sure your building experience is one filled with satisfaction and enjoyment.


Why design and build with us?

Because what you get is what you see. Transparency is a core component of our house building process. Using our state-of-the-art Co-Construct software, we are able to track job site activity and progress.

Co-Construct allows for a more efficient and clear process as it gives you 24/7 access to building selections, costs, photos, and conversations. Everything is organised and accounted for in one spot. You are constantly updated and consistently in the know.

You can even connect to Co-Construct via the mobile phone app! You are able to easily check out your build while walking your dog or you can show a curious friend your new kitchen while catching up at a local cafe.

Additionally, as ZB Homes Waikato manages both design and build services, there is more focus and attention given to cost and scheduling during the design phase. We are fluent with the build phase after all -- we know what will work and what won't work. This comprehension of both services streamlines the entire process, providing an economical use of time and budget. Our process creates opportunities for you to ask questions and consider all options while we achieve a safe, swift, and competent build together.

  • My partner Romy and I have nothing but praise for the way in which the entire home-building task was undertaken, and the professionalism and warm personal involvement by all those in the ZB Homes company throughout the process.

    For us the whole process, from the original meeting with Zane to discuss purchase of the section to the visit from Angie and Rochelle with flowers and goodie-basket to formally hand over keys and ownership papers for our new home, could not have been more pleasant. We are most grateful to them all.

  • I just wanted to pass on my thanks to all of you at ZB. You have all been truly amazing to deal with, and my little house has turned out the most beautiful & perfect little thing.

    I truly couldn’t be happier, and if I had to do it all over again – it would be exactly the same 

    The finishing is lovely, and I really appreciate you all bending over backwards in that last few weeks to get us in there.

    I would definitely recommend ZB homes to anyone I get chatting to who might be looking to build a new home. From start to finish its been fantastic – I am truly so pleased.

    Here’s to a fabulous future & lots of love, laughs & happiness in our new little home 

    Thank you all so much.


  • My husband and I have currently built two homes with ZB Homes over the past three years. ZB Homes works closely with their clients and offer a top quality service. The workmanship of ZB Homes is exceptional - they deliver a high standard quality finish with all of their homes be it an entry level first home or a beautiful designer home. ZB Homes goes beyond the general call of duty for their clients.

  • We would like to thank ZB Homes and all who were involved in the build of our new home. Everyone was so helpful from the initial stage through to completion. The challenge of a less than level section required a lot of planning but once the build got underway it was completed very quickly and came in on time and budget. The management of the process from start to finish was great. We could not have asked for a more experienced and friendly team. They are committed to getting the best result for their clients. We are very happy with the experience we have had with ZB Homes and have no hesitation in recommending them to others.
