House Designs

HOUSE DESIGN AUCKLAND EXPERTS

At Your Builder we love beautifully designed and interesting designer homes. So we pay attention to the role of the architect. We understand that building or renovating a designer home is a journey and should be a fantastic one. Architects focus on architectural plans and house designs and often represent the first part of the building journey. They are creative and have a lot to do before we can even start building.

When we meet people excited about their house design, we know that the architect involved is special.

However, the more complex the project the more dependent the builder and the architect are on each other. Knowing what the architect is trying to achieve is key.

Architects strive to stretch the imagination with simple or unique materials, unusual angles and forms to create something different in your designer home. As a result, delivering these aspects give us a sense of achievement and pride.

WHAT HAPPENS AFTER THE HOUSE DESIGN?

These details require thought and skill in the design element and a technically able house builder to bring it all together for a durable and exciting result. Once the plans are complete the architect may not play such a prominent part and so it is over to your builder to bring the vision to life.

Your Builder has strong connections with existing architects and draftsmen to assist with this process. We can bridge the gap between architect and builder. Our team has the experience and ability to work with yourselves or architect to deliver the very highest standards of workmanship in house design Auckland.

My 2 level 35 year old townhouse has 2 original membrane roofs, where I have been concerned about potential leaks along with rotten facial boards & a deck.I met Hamid on site where he confirmed the membrane was at end of life, but also the whole roof structure wasn’t built correctly. He also pointed out other issues such as flashings installed incorrectly & more rot in places I hadn’t noticed. The house was also due for a complete paint job as well.We then talked through all the options where Hamid gave an honest approximate cost for each item that needed attention & then his recommendation taking into consideration what was most economical for the customer e.g. scaffolding was needed to fix the roof where the bulk of the cost was to put the scaffolding up & pull it down, therefore utilizing this to attend to other issues & painting.In the end it made sense to attend to all issues & we agreed on a time & materials basis. What I really liked about this arrangement was that the weekly invoice was open & clear showing the makeup of the hours such as who did the work & when they clocked on / off, original invoices on material costs & Hamid’s agreed margin which we had a written master builders agreement on. I could also contact Hamid anytime to discuss openly any charges which he clearly explained to me.In terms of the builders, James was my main contact. He turned up religiously each morning & always put in a solid days work which I witnessed many times when I worked from home. He was more than happy to answer any questions or concerns & I found him very communicative. I felt the apprentices also put in a solid days work & they all worked well as a team.In terms of workmanship, which lets face it, is the customers biggest concern, I was more than happy with the job which has absolutely transformed my place. Little details like the angles on the decks, balustrade design, covered corners where the weatherboards meet, sills added under the upstairs windows etc etc.I was so happy with the outside work & dealing with James that I asked if he could undertake replacing the toilet & vanity in the downstairs bathroom & re-tiling the floor where the existing vanity was taken out while I was away on holiday for 2 weeks. I came back to find James had completed the entire bathroom himself including the tiling & painting the whole room to an excellent standard – he is a man of many talents!!In terms of other tradies such as the painter, plumber, membrane installer, roofer & scaffolding company, every team was great to deal with & completed everything to a high standard. Hamid mentioned when we talked through the job that he had taken the time to find good “subbies” & build a good honest relationship with them which I can clearly see at the end of the job. I certainly found dealing with one person & having the reassurance that they had all the right contacts & was dealing with them directly meant the job went well & is certainly how I was left feeling.In summary, I would personally recommended the Your Builder team to any perspective client.Thanks Hamid & Team!GrahamEpsom

Great job on a small but fiddly interior door installation. The team were professional and completed the project on time and on budget - having helped me find good cost savings. Communication and admin was clear and easy via their web-based system.

We had a small repair job requiring structural work on our carport located under our house. Hamid was excellent to deal with and fast to respond to any queries we had. Rob and his team completed the job fast and to an excellent standard. I would definitely recommend using Your Builder for any jobs you might have.

I could not recommend Hamid and the Team at your builder highly enough. I could ramble on here but these guys are Simply the best, communication delivery and end product. I've used builders before but I will only use these guys from now on. I can check my budget, construction progress material selection all online, in real time, from my phone.Thank you Hamid and Team for an incredible House!

My wife and I had a small house renovation done thorough Hamid from Your Builder.James, the foreman and his team did an exceptional job of the renovation. they were professional, on time and worked to a very high standard. They also gave suggestions to improve the finished result, and to save costs.The customer portal is very impressive, and is accurate as far as completed work, and tracking the budget goes on a real time basis. Their communication is very professional and we were kept informed of all work that was done. All variations that were requested, were priced up and approved before any additional work was done.The finished product was everything we had dreamed of and was completed ahead of schedule and under budget.

The Your Builder team are a really great bunch of guys to work with. As an electrician its important to be well organised to manage my business successfully. Hamid is big on his systems meaning scheduling is always clear and there is continual communication between builders and sub-trades with where the project is at making sure we are on-site getting the job done when we need to be. We've done some great builds together so far, for some great clients who have been really happy through the project knowing that budget and schedule is tracked carefully. Can always take pride in my work knowing we're building to a beautiful finish.

I have worked along side Your Builder for over 9 years.Firstly as a roof installer working along side his team on site, now directly with Hamid and his office team as I now run my own company.The same guys have been there the whole time, which says a lot to me about the company they are working in.I have always enjoyed the jobs we have done with Your Builder. They have always been well run and organised.Communication has always been great. They always run a tight ship.I have always found them to be proactive and progressive to keep projects running smoothly and to get the best results.I work with a lot of different builders and companies, and have always seen Your Builder and the team as ‘top of the game’.When I get round to doing my own building works, I will be using Your Builder.

Hamid and his crew are one of the most professional and proficient renovation builders that i have ever been involved with. Communication is clear, concise and he never puts you wrong. He whole system is more advanced than many builders are using today which keeps everyone in the loop with the building status on a particular job. Hamid is one builder i would easily recommend to someone thinking about renovations.
