You Dream It, We Build It

And what a dream home the team from Home Trends Builders Ltd have just completed, beautifully positioned on the banks of the Wairarapa Stream in Fendalton.

This special home conveys numerous bespoke features and has been cleverly designed to capture the million-dollar views inside, yet still maintain privacy.

The marriage of natural timbers and contemporary materials are design statements.  We especially love the Eco-style ‘crazy stone’ Venetian plaster feature wall in the entry, created by Bruce Cooper Plastering with a helping hand by Paolo from Italian Eco Style Ltd.

A big shout out to our team and all our sub-contractors for all your hard work, patience, and commitment during challenging covid work conditions.  We are so immensely proud of this finished home.

Christmas Greetings from Home Trends Builders

Another busy working year is coming to an end and we would like to shout out a big ‘thank you’ to our staff, clients and suppliers for their continued support in yet another successful year.

Our Home Trends Builders Christmas Party was an excellent opportunity to catch up with family and have some fun.

The boys got ‘stuck in’ and finally got those  ’round tuits’ done!

Its Show Time


We thought it was time to blow our trumpet with the release of our latest HTB promotional booklet, which was selected and featured in one of Australasia’s highly respected paper and print industry magazines – GSM – “Creative in Print”. This magazine is focused and issued to the printing industry, with 12,500 copies distributed 3 times a year.

Our designer, John de Vries from De Vries Design,  recognized our very high standard of building experience and design and that is what was delivered to match those important values by showcasing our new company profile.

A high standard of printing and printing embellishments were used to create a stunning result…. something the team from Home Trends Builders is very proud of. 

Now that’s a hard to beat combination!

Thank you GSM magazine for promoting our company profile to the printing and paper manufacturing world.
