Building your new home is a fun and exciting experience – when in the right hands. Nationwide building team GJ Gardner has been in the business for over 20 years, and has seen trends come and go. So customers know that they are receiving quality direction whether they build from a design or even bring in their own ideas. 

Empowered with that specific knowledge, a prospective buyer is in a far better position to know what exactly they can achieve – such as the spacious four-bedroom home featured here. This Taranaki showhome has been designed using various aspects of popular traditional homes together with new ideas to create a real family home, says franchise owner Rod Roebuck. 

“The design has great street presence being finished in an aerated concrete and plaster system matched with the warmth of cedar shiplap weatherboards and a tile roof,” he says.

And the house is just as impressive on the inside. High, raking ceilings running through the two living areas accentuate the feeling of spaciousness. At the same time, classic operable shutters bring added charm, as well as privacy from the street, and work well with the solid oak flooring seen in the kitchen and dining areas.

The house also includes a light-filled study, a two-car garage, and hydronic in-slab heating so you have a luxuriously warm home year round. Plus there’s a modern gas fire for those that like to see where the warmth is coming from.

The showhome also boasts three sheltered decks. So no matter which way the wind is blowing, there’s always a sheltered spot outside.
