Great house design is everything
The right design is everything

The secret of the design and build process is getting the design right from the very start. That’s why we don’t have cookie-cutter house plans which may limit your design options.

We’ll provide you with initial designs that are customised to your unique situation. This involves meeting with you, asking lots of questions about your lifestyle and require- ments and showing you successful designs we’ve created for others.

As our Build7 Canterbury client, we’ll pick one of our architects to lead the design phase of your new home. It’s a very important part of the picture – and it’s customised for you. Our designers are chosen to work with you based on their strengths and the best fit for you personally. Your needs and your way of wanting things done is taken into account.

Expert interior design that works for you

The interior design part of the new home building process is exciting! These are the finishing touches, where everything comes together in perfect harmony, to give you the look and feel you want.

It’s not just about the colour. Cupboards, taps, and everything else is discussed. It’s a process where you can inject your own personality and style.


You can pick the brains of real experts, share ideas, brainstorm options, materials, colors, textures and more. We know from helping others exactly how to help you get what you want. It’s a cool process

that we know you’ll love.

Reviews - what our clients are saying

What our clients are saying...

“After building 4 previous homes I knew from day 1 that this build was going to be easy. Communication was the key. Build 7 Christchurch were very professional and nothing was a problem. Time frames were adhered to and solutions found for any problems that popped up during the build. I am extremely happy with my new home which was started in February 2015 and I moved in August 2015. The aftercare I have had is next to none. I would not hesitate in having any future homes built with Build 7 Christchurch.”
