We have a lot of clients who have settled into their area with children in schools, work close by and have family and friends just around the corner. Being well-established already in their neighbourhood, they naturally prefer to stay, but have either outgrown their existing home or want to create better spaces and modernise.
QPC recently completed this new Cape Cod inspired home for Milford couple, Peter and Jelena (who lived in the US for three years) who felt they wanted to explore the options regarding their existing 1948 rimu bungalow that they had outgrown. After much consultation with QPC and Creative Arch Limited, whom we highly recommend as award-winning architects and designers, the design evolved into a large family home with guest apartment that is now their ‘forever home’.
A complete rebuild can actually cost less than trying to work with the existing construction and foundations of the home, which are quite often not compliant with today’s building code. A new build ensures that a home is built to latest regulations and building standards and the build meets your family’s needs without compromise. New homes are often ‘smarter’ homes because they are built using the latest technologies in structural integrity and are energy efficient.
At QPC we prefer not to offer standard house plans, rather we like to work with great local architects that will work with you to create a bespoke home perfect for you.
“We had been looking for a larger home to accommodate our family of three sons for a number of years and being in real estate had access to some fine properties, but could not find anything that met our needs and expectations. We kept coming back to our 1948 bungalow that had served us well, but that would not take us into the next chapter in our lives. It made total sense then to consider either renovating our current home or building new. In our search for a reputable building company we came down to two choices. We chose QPC to undertake this process for us which ended up being close to three years from start to finish. Fortunately Alex and his team were professional throughout this time-consuming undertaking, and worked diligently to ensure that we had the home of our dreams.
During the period of construction, there were surprises along the way – there always are, which QPC handled quickly and efficiently to ensure that the build moved swiftly along without delays. We can recommend them to anyone considering such an investment as professional and easy to deal with as we are very happily now living in our new home and we love it. Thanks to Alex, Bundy and his team.”
