This beach house was a great build. Simple in construction, yet oozing class. Having designed the building themselves, Mike and Jan engaged Brown & Brown to work with them and turn the drawings into their dream home. Located on the exposed west coast of Taranaki, the project obviously had its challenges, but we were up for it. Built like a rock, this home could stand up to New Zealand’s harshest conditions. It's clad in a combination of vertical ship lapped cedar weatherboard and Mike’s own river-stone work. The ‘ageing stain’ on the cedar helps the house fit right in with its surrounding instantly. It is a work of art. Our designer Andrew even helped build this.
"We were really pleased with Brown and Brown Builders. Sean was the foreman on our build and his finishing standard was outstanding – very high quality work – no shortcuts. Simon took an active interest in our job and filled us with confidence that only a builder of his experience can bring. I would definitely use Brown and Brown again and have no hesitation in commending them to others."
