Our Build Process

1.  LAND

We would love to start your new housing project off by identifying a site in your preferred area. It may be a residential or rural site anywhere in Christchurch, Rangiora and the wider Canterbury region. If you have already selected a site, the Trendsetter Homes team can evaluate this for you. Once your preferred building site has been confirmed, the new home design process commences.


Choose from one of our house plan range, or we can custom design a home for you with the features you want. You can trust that we’ll put your interests first, giving you a home you will enjoy for years to come. Once all of the concepts are approved a small drawing fee may be required for the completion of working drawings done.


A Registered Master Builders contract is written up for your approval. After acceptance, and signing of the contract, a deposit is required. Now the fun part begins. While the Council is processing your consent, we will introduce you to our interior designer who will help you select colours, interior and exterior tiles and floor coverings.


The building process is very exciting to watch. We are happy to take you on-site at any time by appointment. At all times, your building site is securely fenced to protect your home and contents until handover.


It’s time to take the keys, and pop the champagne at your new home. From here, you’re ready to go, all you need to do is unpack your furniture and enjoy your beautiful new home.
