It’s No Accident

Home Trends Builders always strives to be consistent and in 2019 the Registered Master Builders ‘House Of The Year Awards’ recognised this again by awarding our two entries on Wai-iti Terrace with a Gold and Silver in their categories.

We once again congratulate all our team and sub-contractors who helped bring these two amazing projects to life.

Farewell To A Very Special Person

It is with great sadness we farewell a very special colleague and friend who touched the lives of many during his 26 years with Home Trends Builders.  Known for his humour, kindness and loyalty, he will be missed by his workmates, clients and all those who have had the privilege of dealing with Paul.  Sleep well dear friend and we will see you again one day.

Look What We’ve Built!

Work has commenced on our latest project in Fendalton by the river, consisting of an 485sqm floor slab, underground cellar and outside swimming pool.

The logistics of building a cellar so close to the river was a bit of a daunting task but the boys from Home Trends Builders are always up for a challenge.

Merry Christmas Home Trends Builders






To our wonderful family at Home Trends Builders. 

We’ve reached that time of the year again which seems to come around so fast,  where we put up the trees and Christmas decorations and we think of holidays and hot summer weather.  But to get to this point we have enjoyed yet another year full of great success as well as personal challenges along the way.  Elaine and I wish you all a very happy, peaceful and safe Christmas and holiday time with your families and friends. We thank each and every one of you for your joint and personal contributions and for the amazing effort and trust you placed with us throughout the year.  We always look forward to the New Year and the opportunities it presents us.  Merry Christmas to you all and once again a big ‘thank you’.  Pete.
