Get to know EasyBuild Waikato

Building a new home is an exciting process but not something most of us do every day.

Like anything new, jumping into the unknown can be pretty nerve-wracking, so it’s important to get to know the team who’ll be taking care of your build. Clear communication, trust and an upfront approach set the foundations for a positive, stress-free, committed relationship with your building team.

Get to know Jourdan Lee, Director of EasyBuild Waikato, and find out why EasyBuild Homes offers a smart solution to building new in the Waikato region.

Tell us about yourself

I’m a father to three energetic daughters and husband to the most beautiful and supportive wife. My career began in banking and finance in Fiji, before I realised my passion for building and I eventually traded the spreadsheets for a toolbelt.

Work is both hectic and fun; but we balance the ledger by dedicating time for family and our own hobbies. I’m into fishing, spearfishing and the occasional bowl of kava with my mates. I’m blessed to have a good bunch of family and friends nearby, so there’s always a gathering of some kind to look forward to.

When and why did you join EasyBuild?

We joined in May 2022 following a series of exciting conversations with the team at EasyBuild, and after receiving some solid advice from my friend Simon at EasyBuild Wellington.

My cousin Dylan and I had been dreaming of teaming up to deliver quality projects for the people of Waikato, so joining EasyBuild presented the perfect opportunity to do so. We love being able to bring quality, affordable homes to the Waikato, and fast!

Who makes up the EasyBuild Waikato team?

Dylan and I are the Directors of EasyBuild Waikato. We each work to our individual strengths – Sales, Construction and Project Management – so we can support each other and the business, and most importantly, our clients. 

What makes EasyBuild a great choice for building in Waikato?

Our unique modular construction method a really smart way to build, without compromising on quality. Not to mention the speed of build which is a huge bonus. With high interest rates on lending, being able to start and complete your new build within a short period of time means less interest costs and more money in your pocket.

Dylan and I offer a wealth of industry experience and we’re passionate about giving our clients a positive experience getting into their quality new homes. At the end of the day, we know that a happy client enjoying their new home, is one of the best indicators that we’ve done our job well.

What EasyBuild home designs are your clients choosing for their Waikato builds and why?

We’re seeing two extremes in the Waikato – with people looking at our Waihi home design for infill housing or minor/secondary dwellings, multi-generational living, downsizing and the like. The Waihi design is a smartly designed two-bedroom home in a 60m2 floorplan.

Then on the opposite end of the spectrum, people really love our four-beddies here in the Mighty Waikato, so our Glenorchy home design has been popular among families, investors and developers looking for more space. It’s one of our largest EasyBuild designs offering 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms inside a 136.6m2 footprint, with the option to add a single or double internal access attached garage.
