We take pride in our work and our aim is to do the best that we can do. Here is what a few of our clients had to say about their building experience with us…

Very pleased with the manner and craftsmanship of the Discovery Home team when they undertook the renovation of our 1930s bungalow. Ben was very sympathetic of the look we wished to create and managed his team well to achieve a result we are thrilled with. A renovation with a family is not easy but the team at Discovery Homes made our build very manageable due to their accommodating manner.

The Marlborough Sustainable Housing Trust wants to deliver the best value for our shared owners as we possibly can. Discovery Homes has been a very important part of making that happen. With the help of Ben Grady and his team we have built for three very different households, but all have got high performing, life time design homes, built as we asked to specification. Ben works well with our designers to ensure that we have been able to deliver comfortable homes which will last at an affordable price.

When my mother had to make the big move from Christchurch because of the earthquakes, we needed a home that she could afford but one that she could enjoy for the rest of her life. Ben and his team delivered. They worked with us and our designer to build a life time design and sustainable home which is small but perfectly formed and fantastic value for money.

Discovery Homes are great to deal with. We’d never built before and Ben kept us in the loop, explained things in lay-man’s language and had plenty of good ideas for keeping the costs down.. Ben and his team turned up on time, kept the site tidy and built us a home that is a pleasure to live in.

Many people describe the experience of building a house as one of the more stressful things they have done. Fränzi and I can however honestly say that having Discovery Homes build our house has been a joy. We have found Ben to always be accommodating and his full time presence on site, and his attention to detail, has resulted in our vision becoming a reality.
