lICENsED BUILDING PRACTITIONERS
We are builders based in the Mangere Bridge area.
This was a very unique project. Building a tidy structure is one thing, however building it to match an existing house and look like it was always there requires a specialised skill set. We were approached because that is what we do. The build had its challenges, and as you can see by the photos there were plenty of details to keep us on our toes.
The project ran smoothly from start to finish, and the client was rapt with the end result, and so were we.
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."

At Brown & Brown we share a real passion for preserving beautiful old buildings. We added another wing to this villa, making space for a master bedroom with ensuite. The intention was to make it appear it was always like that. Villas and bungalows have a very distinctive look, and this is largely due to the extra detail and workmanship that went into building each house during that era. When renovating a villa or bungalow we pride ourselves on replicating the finer details and unique characteristics of each individual home, inside and out. Our team has been trained in this type of work, and the client couldn’t be happier with the result.
