Building your home does not have to be an anxiety fuelled experience

Build your Dream Home with Confidence
By choosing a builder who collaborates directly with you and your architect, you can ensure your dream home is designed to meet your requirements AND budget. At HARPER, we help you design and build your ideal home by taking the time to gain a comprehensive understanding of your dreams, goals, needs and budget.
Then, we match you with the right designer or architect, and work in unison with them and with you to design your home in the most cost-effective way possible.
This collaborative design and build process leaves you in control, while also offering the peace of mind that comes from knowing you’ll have a home design you can build without blowing your budget.

Frequently Asked Questions
When you build a bespoke home, you can ensure you end up with a home that’s specially designed to meet your family’s needs and goals. Building a bespoke home is also the best way to address any unique challenges posed by your chosen block of land.
Bespoke building also gives you maximum freedom and control, as you can choose selections that meet your preferences for aesthetics, practicality and budget. The freedom and benefits you can enjoy when building a bespoke home stand in contrast to the restrictions and limits of building a “cookie cutter” home. Cookie cutter homes offer a limited number of choices between various, fairly basic designs. They tend to only suit flat blocks of land that are average sizes and shapes. And they come with a limited number of selections to choose between.
Unlike most building companies, we don’t get our builders to throw together quotes after working 10-hour days. Instead, your quote is compiled by a professional estimator and quantity surveyor. That way, we can ensure every variable is accounted for, every selection is included and every budget blowout risk has been mitigated before we present you with a fixed-price quote for your custom home.
You can read about our process in detail here. We reject the industry practice of quoting low and profiting from variations. The prices on our quotes may appear higher than quotes from other builders. However, with our quotes, what you see is precisely what you’ll get – you won’t be on the hook for any expensive variations down the road. Our fixed-price quotes are fair, reasonable, and realistic. Everything is documented, detailed, and agreed upon, so you can be confident there will be no nasty surprises during construction. Once you agree to the quote, we provide you with a fixed-price contract for building your custom home. Then, the adventure begins!
In addition to taking the time to compile an accurate quote, our Auckland bespoke home builders speak to all our suppliers and subcontractors to understand their lead times and deliverables before we begin work on your home. This allows us to confidently and accurately schedule your project and offer you a reliable timeline. And because our all-inclusive quote protects you from expensive variations, you don’t need to worry about any variation “spanners” in your timeline “works”.
Your personally-dedicated app (and online portal) lets you follow the progress on your home with a daily log that includes photos, continually updated scheduling, links to all the trades working on your home, a record of your financials and details of all your selections. This personalised app allows us to effectively communicate with you every day and puts you firmly in the driver’s seat of your project.
Led by our head builder, Jonny Harper, your home will be built by our core team of Auckland bespoke home builders, carpenters, and apprentices. Work that needs to be done by other trades will be subcontracted to our fully-vetted and trusted contractors, all of whom meet our strict standards for experience, qualifications, reliability, and commitment to delivering high quality finishes on all our projects. We oversee all the work on your home to ensure it meets our standards for quality. Our clients regularly comment on the high calibre of the trades we work with and always share how impressed they are by our own crew. They particularly appreciate our commitment to keeping your site clean and tidy from start to finish.
