Building a new home is an exciting process but not something most 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.

Tell us about yourself
I was born in Christchurch but now live in Upper Hutt with my partner and young son, Max, who keeps us entertained! We recently moved back to New Zealand after 8.5 years living in Sydney so we could be closer to friends and family. In Sydney I worked in residential sales and in a management role at Jetstar Airways.
I love my sport and am a devoted fan of the Hurricanes and mighty Vodafone Warriors! I enjoy all outdoor activities and spending time with my family.
Who makes up the EasyBuild Wellington team?
There’s myself – Sales & Marketing Manager at EasyBuild Wellington, Ken – our Project Manager, and Jason – our Area Manager. Ken manages our client’s builds from start to finish on site, Jason oversees all operations, and I look after our clients.
What makes EasyBuild a great choice for building in Wellington?
First and foremost, our homes are actually affordable. They work well for anyone looking to build a value-for-money home for themselves, or looking to maximise their return on an existing Wellington property by subdividing. Our modular designs also mean we can build efficiently so our customers can get the keys sooner.
Wellington can be cold and it’s no secret that it can get a tad windy! Our homes are incredibly warm with high-rated insulation, keeping Wellington homeowners toasty and dry no matter the weather.
What EasyBuild home designs are your clients choosing for their Wellington builds and why?
We’ve found the two-storey Windsor design has become popular because it’s very spacious with plenty of storage; but it can fit in a tight site space to maximise return on a small section.
