Those lucky enough to find a coastal site in the city today may find that it poses a challenge to the designer and builder.

For a family returning from the UK, land by the beach was very alluring. However, the high water table, sandy site and a caveat on the maximum height of the home all called for a skilful designer and a competent, experienced builder.

The owners employed Certified Builder Peter Broome to construct their new concrete and masonry block home. To meet height-to-boundary requirements, designer Don Nelson excavated for the basement level, and a low stud level on the two upper levels ensures the house doesn't block neighbours' views.

As a member of the Certified Builders Association of New Zealand (CBANZ), Broome could offer the homeowners a multitude of client and trade references to prove the calibre of his workmanship and business skills.
