Showing off the best at Owhiro River
Trident Homes Dunedin’s new show home in the Owhiro River subdivision, Mosgiel, is created with family living in mind.

Trident Homes Dunedin’s long awaited show home represents a major milestone in the busy franchise, director James Crooks says.
“We haven’t had a show home for about four years so it will make a huge difference to be able to show customers something tangible.”
It will also be great for people to see the quality of the workmanship that goes into each and every Trident Homes house, James says.
Based on a Trident Homes design-and-build option, the show home at Lot 66 in the Owhiro River subdivision, Mosgiel, is created with family living in mind.
The kitchen/living/dining area is a generous 47sqm and includes a walk-in pantry; there is a separate lounge off this area with double doors to allow for separation when needed.
The master bedroom includes a walk-in ward-robe and the remaining bedrooms also include built-in wardrobes.
Exterior walls are a combination of plaster and band-sawn bevel-back cedar weatherboards, which, complemented by coloured steel roofing, creates a contemporary house with varied textures and clean design lines.
The plaster-finished walls have the Nu-Therm cavity-based exterior insulation and finishing system as a substrate.
The system consists of expanded polystyrene sheets fixed over polystyrene battens to form a wall cavity which is necessary for both ventilation and weather resistance.
Clever utilisation double garage storage is made possible by having an attic with access provided by the inclusion of a drop-down ladder in the ceiling.

James says having a house built is the preference of many people who have the ability to do so as they realise that a new, well insulated house with double glazing and an abundance of light is often preferable to altering and renovating an existing house at considerable cost.
The construction market in Dunedin, Mosgiel and their environs remains extremely busy.
“Economically the southern region is going well,” says James.
“There is probably a bit of investment in rental properties from further north as well [such as] people in the Auckland housing market who have done well, reinvesting somewhere else.”
In addition to the show home, Trident Homes Dunedin is currently building five other homes in the Owhiro River subdivision.While Trident Homes offers a large range of designs, each can be altered to suit individual needs and wants and this is where the Dunedin team is a great asset.
“We give clients an initial concept which they can take away and consider.
“If they are happy with this we can then finalise their concept plan, using these to base a final quotation off.”
An important part of the initial on-site consultation process is to assess a site in relation to the sun and views available.
Trident Homes has a very good standard in the level of specification in choosing the interior decor, kitchen and bathroom layout and fittings, whether from a range of in-house options, or by using the services of a qualified interior designer in-house or independently.
Its website www.tridenthomes.nz is a great resource to help would-be new home owners with their planning.
The Dunedin franchise office is on the corner of Cumberland and Police Streets; look for the Trident Homes sign.
