Design Builders work with you to create a unique home designed and built just for you, inspired by you. That means no pre-prepared plans, templates, or catalogue. Instead, we start fresh, with a blank sheet of paper and a client who wants an exceptional home. Design Builders Bay of Plenty’s team looks after the region stretching from Waihi to the northernmost tip of the East Cape. The team offers a friendly, personal, and expert service.
