Showhome that goes the extra mile
Keeping most processes in-house enables Hawkes Bay based Thomson Homes to maintain complete control of each new home the company builds, says company director Adam Thomson.
From design to completion Adam oversees every aspect of the build keeping quality levels high and ensuring things are completed on time and on budget.
Adam started Thomson Homes around a decade ago straight out of his apprenticeship.
Initially employing a single apprentice, the company has now grown to employ a team of five builders. Thomson Homes offers a full design and build service.
It has a range of plans but these are largely used for inspiration as each build is personalized to suit the client’s specific requirements and site, says Adam.
Thomson Homes also builds from the client’s own plans if these have already been drafted.
Although in the past the company completed renovation projects, Adam says the decision has been made to focus on new home builds as this is an area of building he feels needs full dedication to offer clients the best possible service.
Thomson Homes builds throughout Hawke’s Bay from Waipukurau across to Napier. Fixed price contracts mean no hidden surprises.
Adam is also a NZ Certified Builder, and as such offers the Association’s Halo 10 Year Residential Guarantee with each new home build for additional peace of mind. A new show home has just been completed in Matariki Avenue, Frimley, Hastings.
The 185 square metre home includes three bedrooms, separate living area, open plan kitchen/dining/family area, bathroom, ensuite and double garage.
Set on a 540sqm site it also has outdoor concrete terraces to provide outside living space.
The home includes upgraded insulation of 3.2 in the ceilings and 2.6 in the walls.
Even the garage door is insulated and the windows in the garage are double glazed indicating the company’s level of attention to detail and the high quality specifications
of the home.
RibRaft foundations are used in every build – Adam says it is not only an efficient product to install but provides a very good foundation.
The traditional style show home, clad in Linea weatherboard, is open for viewing by appointment.
Thomson Homes will soon be offering a range of house and land packages in Frimley in the Lyndhurst subdivision.
Adam says Frimley is where most of the sections are coming onto the market and the area will be busy with new builds over coming years.
Thomson Homes also has a lot of work booked ahead and says the region is busy and in some parts finding available land for builds is becoming challenging.
“We tend to sell right off the plans before it even hits the market,” he says of his company’s design and build offering.
Thomson Homes has a number of large home builds about to star t in Havelock as well as a number of small projects in subdivisions underway.
Adam aims to continue to grow his company to meet demand for new housing in the region in the coming years.
