Cottages New Zealand

Our building process

Do you want to take the stress out of building? We understand that deciding to build a new home is a huge decision and how daunting it can be. We take the stress out of building by project managing the whole process for you.

We make this project look easy.

Meet with us to discuss your wants and needs. Look at some floor plan options. Walk through the factory and our display buildings.

Site Visit
We will meet you on site to help decide the best place to locate your new dwelling and to assess accessibility and necessity of any site works. It would also be determined at the site visit whether we pile at delivery stage, or prepile and crane into position.

The Plan

Together we will work out a plan, budget and time frame that suits you.

Council consents
We will lodge all necessary Council Consents on your behalf. We have a good working relationship with many district councils.


Built undercover, by highly experienced and qualified staff, in our Hastings facility, your building will not see the light of day or get hit by wet weather until it is completely weather tight. As construction is not affected by the weather we know we can keep to the time frame we have promised you.  Building off site, and transporting your new building once complete, means less disruption to your site.

Site Works

Prior to moving your dwelling to its new home, our staff will come to your site & complete the necessary piling work.

Transport to site

We have the experience and expertise to negotiate some challenging access routes.

The final touches

This is when we organise all of the subcontractors, on your behalf, to make their connections onsite.  We then complete the site works to include baseboards, steps etc to ensure that it is fully compliant to get the final Council approval.
