New Builds

Imagine your dream home. Is it a single storey or multiple? Is it a tiny home, minor dwelling, or a large family home? Do you see the progress on your site or will it be delivered complete?

Regardless, You Dream it, Touchwood makes it real and keeps it Realistic

Transformative Touchwood System

This unique method of building involves the use of modular timber panels. These create a strong and durable wall surface that serves as both the frame and interior walls. Touchwood-trained builders construct these walls in our yard, then stand the walls up – wherever construction is taking place, onsite or in our yard – in what seems like a matter of hours. In contrast to conventional building techniques, the Touchwood wall system effectively builds a home inside out. Once the walls are erected and the roof is on, the house interior is sealed without cladding. Then the insulation and cladding follow after.

Classic Timber-Frame

This is the method of construction most commonly used for residential building in New Zealand. First, it involves the construction of a timber frame composed of a support network of joists, studs, and rafters. Once the framing is erected and the roof is constructed with your chosen roofing material, builders then start with preparing the building and installing the cladding and joinery. With this method of construction builders then work inward to add insulation, plumbing and wiring etc. The interior lining of the home is typically finished with a plasterboard and painted creating the classic look of a conventional home.

Contract Types

You decide the type of contract you would like. Generally, this is a choice between a Fixed price or Charge up contracts.
Fixed price contracts mean you will receive a quote at the beginning of the project that won’t change, apart from areas that may have an allowance rather than a cost. Whereas, Charge up contracts may change from the initial estimate.

Payment Schedule

When you receive your contract, your prearranged quote will have a payment schedule.

Ordinarily, the payment schedule is set out as milestones. For example once we complete the walls or the kitchen is installed. But you are welcome to choose and discuss other options such as fortnightly or monthly payments.
