Build­ing for the first time? Get the ex­perts on your side

Build­ing a new home can be both an ex­cit­ing and a daunt­ing process – es­pe­cially if you’re build­ing for the first time. There are many de­ci­sions to be made, from lo­cat­ing a site, de­cid­ing on a de­sign and then find­ing a trust­wor­thy builder and sub-con­trac­tors who can work to your time­frame at a cost that’s within your bud­get. Some­times the thought of or­gan­is­ing all this makes the first-home builder feel they don’t know where to be­gin.

This is where Lat­i­tude Homes – a Pa­pakurabased build­ing com­pany – is gain­ing its rep­u­ta­tion. They spe­cialise in sim­pli­fy­ing what can some­times seem over­whelm­ing.

They go the ex­tra mile, whether it’s eval­u­at­ing the site be­fore you buy or just de­mys­ti­fy­ing the whole build­ing process by ex­plain­ing what’s in­volved in each step from start to fin­ish.

“ That’s why we have pro­duced our in­for­ma­tion brochure, the First Home Builders Guide, be­cause we know from over 60 years ex­pe­ri­ence work­ing in the home build­ing in­dus­try that many peo­ple want guid­ance and in­for­ma­tion from a rep­utable com­pany,” says Marc Hunter of Lat­i­tude Homes.

“Our Guide ex­plains the dif­fer­ent kinds of homes that can be built from a full build ser­vice to more cost ef­fec­tive op­tions such as pur­chas­ing a kit­set or trans­portable home.

“Our cus­tomers are very im­por­tant to us,” Marc says. “ Build­ing a home takes place over a num­ber of months and we want to make sure that we fully ex­plain time­frames and es­tab­lish ex­pec­ta­tions at the be­gin­ning of the re­la­tion­ship.

“ For ex­am­ple we know that our turn­around times for com­pleted kit­set plans lead the hous­ing in­dus­try and we’ve found that some cus­tomers come to us with sto­ries of hav­ing to wait for well over a month for plans!

“ We know that build­ing a house is prob­a­bly the big­gest in­vest­ment and com­mit­ment a fam­ily will make and once that de­ci­sion has been made to build, we work hard to en­sure that the process moves as quickly as pos­si­ble.”
