Residential Wanaka New Builds

Are you looking to build your new Wanaka house? Amy and Kawhata are dedicated to making building your new home simple and easy. With a focus on your experience, as well as a commitment to quality and honesty, we would love to help you bring your dreams to life.

We offer a comprehensive new house build service – from planning to delivery. We start by working with you to create a house plan you love, then we have a design consultation to help you decide on kitchen, bathroom and other home finishes. We project-manage the entire build and deliver to you a beautiful, hand crafted, finished dwelling.

We also offer ready-built houses for an even more streamlined approach to the building process.

Wanaka Spec Homes

Niche Design & Construction also design, build and take to market already built spec houses.

If you want to be involved in building a new house, but without the pressure of too many decisions, talk to us about how we can create a home for you. We can present you with a section, a house plan and you can just make simple choices to do with the interior colours & finishes.

This is a great middle-ground between building your own home with a Wanaka builder from scratch, and buying a new home that you haven’t been able to be involved in the decision-making process at all. It allows you to have control over some of the key visual elements of the home like carpet, paint schemes, cabinetry and other finishes.

It is our simplified approach to the new house build market, and one we have found has presented very desirable outcomes for some happy Wanaka new home owners.
