Building an affordable house in New Zealand doesn’t mean it has to be poor quality. When you build with us, you’ll get a 2, 3 or 4 bedroom home that’s well-priced, and great quality.

We’ll use the same framing timber and materials on your project that are used on much more expensive ‘design and build’ projects. We keep the price down because:

  • We’ve already designed a whole range of base house designs at no charge to you. They are modern, practical and stylish. But because you can ‘mix and match’ different aspects like layout, the style of roof and finishing, they’ll still be individual.
  • We’re part of a group of independently owned builders throughout NZ. This means efficiencies in systems and savings to you.
  • Because of our size and spread, we’ve got strong relationships with suppliers and buying power that helps you save.

Because Affordable House Builders is a network of independent builders across New Zealand, we can cover nearly all regions of the country.
