Thank you for your work on fitting the new chimney roof / boulder cave. It looks great and we cannot wait to get holds on to try it.
My experience with Certified Plans and Chamberlain Carpentry & Joinery.
In May 2015, I decided to build a new house in Taupo. Having found a site with a good view of Lake Taupo - it was time to find a top notch builder.
Having checked out plans from all the competitor building companies, I easily chose a plan “Totara” from the range of plans offered by Certified Builders.
The plan appealed to me because it met all the criteria on my wish list:
1. An attractive, single storey, house - with no stairs
2. A spacious airy layout for kitchen, lounge, and media room
3. 3x decent sized bedrooms (master with ensuite – and a guest bathroom) - and a study. (I work from home)
4. 3x full sized internal access garage car spaces
I really liked the artist’s impression of the house on the brochure – so asked Ian Chamberlain if we could “build that”.
I needed to have 3 changes made to the standard plan to have the house be just right:
a. Swap the positions of the separate laundry and 3rd bedroom
b. Make the 3rd garage longer (so that it could accommodate a 6 metre vehicle)
c. Add a large gas fireplace in the lounge
The plans were updated, the consents obtained – and work began on 1 July. I moved in in mid-November. The job was completed to the highest of standards, on time, and even better, on budget.
A building experience cannot be much better than this, Ian and his team were fantastic to get along with – and the finished home is just perfect.
I’m more than happy to recommend Chamberlain Carpentry & Joinery, and Certified Plans to anyone looking to build.
