New Zealand has long led the world in solid timber construction techniques.

The team at Touchwood™ has been been building timber houses for many years – and with that experience behind us have developed a unique wood building system which can be used for both contemporary and traditionally designed homes.

The Touchwood solid wood building system is a revolution in solid wood home design. It combines conventional floor and roof construction with a solid timber interior & exterior wall system, using an innovative, modular wall-panel design which can be cost-effectively constructed to create a strong and durable finished-wall surface with a modern, stylish appearance.

We can do anything from minor dwellings, to any size that fits your budget. We also have a yard in Kaikohe that specialises in sleepouts and cabins.

We understand how important your new home is to you, and how stressful it can be with the wrong builder. At Touchwood we make sure the process is as painless as possible.

Building a new home?

This invaluable guide to the building process was written by our own TOUCHWOOD Solidwood Homes director Stephen Emm.

It is a step-by-step guide to everything you need to know about building your new home and is of enormous value to anyone about to build a home for the first time.

Please download it with our compliments.

Touchwood Solidwood Homes were great in keeping us informed at every step and in solving any problems. In fact, they have been great to work with throughout the build, with regular contact and fantastic on-site experienced builders. The house construction was fascinating to watch – we now have an addition that looks seamless and suits our needs perfectly. We absolutely love our new home! Many thanks to Stephen and the Team at Touchwood Solidwood Homes. We would highly recommend them to anyone.

“Steve and Cherie from Touchwood Solidwood Homes built our new home in Arkles Bay just over a year ago – and we absolutely love it. They did such a good job, the quality was top notch and communication was excellent, plus their team of contractors were all courteous and friendly.

We won’t hesitate to contact them if we ever decide to build again, and I recommend them to anyone wanting to build a new home.”


Arkles Bay

We have recently contracted with Touchwood Solidwood Homes Ltd to build us a home on our property.

The home was built in their yard and transported to our site with exemplary speed and efficiency and well within the time frame specified within the contract.

We are delighted with the result. The whole process from beginning to end was absolutely seamless and this from a writer who had built previously with another provider and sworn never to build again.

In my profession as a Financial Adviser (mortgages) I am recommending Touchwood to my clients whenever building advice is sought and I do this in the knowledge that my clients will benefit greatly from giving serious consideration to the Touchwood option.

We have recently contract with Touchwood Solidwood Homes to build us a home for our property in the lovely Matakana area.

Our home was originally their first show home which they had on their site for just over two years. As we loved it so much we decided to buy this one when it came up for sale, as well as some of the furnishings. It was transported to our site and we are delighted with the result. We are now renting our luxury holiday home out to the public and we have been fully booked from the day we went online.

As a company marketing manager we are recommending Touchwood to all our clients whenever the subject comes up of building their own home. We have found the finishing touches that Touchwood completed after the relocation was of a very high standard. We are absolutely thrilled with our Touchwood experience.

Who shall we go with to build our new home? When we decided to build a new home we investigated several options, Touchwood Solidwood Homes being one of them. The friendly, enthusiastic and polite reception we received from Steve and Cherie on our initial visit (and many thereafter) cemented our decision to go with Touchwood. The solid wood finish inside appealed to our ‘lifetime love of wood’ and even though we have always managed our previous builds, the option of having the project managed whilst we were overseas was a great benefit.

After perusing a wide selection of Touchwood designs, we selected the ‘Kiwi Bach’ design because we felt it suited our block of land and informal lifestyle. Prior to going overseas we were able to make all building decisions confidently, knowing they would be followed.. and what a wonderful surprise we returned to. Our new home was nearly completed – and to the exact specifications we had agreed to.

Some of the valued professional behaviours demonstrated by Touchwood included a prepared and signed financial contract prior to commencement of the project; their regular polite conversations with customers, a willingness to discuss any issues and concerns, in friendly, relaxed interactions with us as clients. Even after we had made our final payment we were never worried about the completion of our new home.

Our new home has completely exceeded our expectations. Going with Touchwood has proven a wise decision and we would highly recommend them as an ethical and fully trustworthy company.
