You Deserve a Beautiful Home

Custom Build


We begin every new home from scratch – not from a Plan Book (although we do of course have many home plans you can look through for inspiration or to use as a place to start).

House & Land


The possibilities are limitless – there are no set plans. Every home is customised according to your budget, your land and your needs. We create something new. Something just for you.

Our Unique Process

  • Step 1


    process icon

    Sit down with one of the ZB team and discuss your wants and needs. We may look at existing plans for inspiration or start with a completely blank canvas.

  • Step 2


    process icon

    Review the initial concept plans and make changes as necessary. See how the house will sit on your land. Start to visualise.

  • Step 3


    process icon

    Once the concept plan has been finalised and signed off, a Quote and Specifications document is prepared. The Quote details exactly what is included in your project price, including PC Sums (if any).

  • Step 4


    process icon

    Construction begins soon after the building consent has been issued. Depending on the size and complexity of your project, homes can be completed in as little as 4 months construction time or up to 6 - ­7 months.

  • Step 5

    Hand over

  • My partner Romy and I have nothing but praise for the way in which the entire home-building task was undertaken, and the professionalism and warm personal involvement by all those in the ZB Homes company throughout the process.

    For us the whole process, from the original meeting with Zane to discuss purchase of the section to the visit from Angie and Rochelle with flowers and goodie-basket to formally hand over keys and ownership papers for our new home, could not have been more pleasant. We are most grateful to them all.

  • I just wanted to pass on my thanks to all of you at ZB. You have all been truly amazing to deal with, and my little house has turned out the most beautiful & perfect little thing.

    I truly couldn’t be happier, and if I had to do it all over again – it would be exactly the same

    The finishing is lovely, and I really appreciate you all bending over backwards in that last few weeks to get us in there.

    I would definitely recommend ZB homes to anyone I get chatting to who might be looking to build a new home. From start to finish its been fantastic – I am truly so pleased.

    Here’s to a fabulous future & lots of love, laughs & happiness in our new little home

    Thank you all so much.

The workmanship of ZB Homes is exceptional - they deliver a high standard quality finish with all of their homes be it an entry level first home or a beautiful designer home. ZB Homes goes beyond the general call of duty for their clients.

  • We would like to thank ZB Homes and all who were involved in the build of our new home. Everyone was so helpful from the initial stage through to completion. The challenge of a less than level section required a lot of planning but once the build got underway it was completed very quickly and came in on time and budget. The management of the process from start to finish was great. We could not have asked for a more experienced and friendly team. They are committed to getting the best result for their clients. We are very happy with the experience we have had with ZB Homes and have no hesitation in recommending them to others.
