If you have not built before, or this is your first time building in New Zealand – this Ebook is for you. These ten steps are useful for anybody who wants a step by step guide – from finding a section to planning, financing and building your home.

Beautiful, energy efficient homes

NZ homes are often cold, damp and poorly designed. We believe Kiwis deserve homes that are warm, dry, quiet, eco-friendly and innovative in design.

Martin Oelofse, Director

Have you heard the words, ‘code-minimum’? This is the New Zealand’s Building Code’s way of describing the worst possible house you can legally build. And many homes out there are barely code compliant. We can do better.

Here at Pointbreak, we want to see people living in warm, dry, beautiful homes. It’s for the future of families, neighbourhoods, and NZ. Together with my wife Sue (and our adopted dog and chief of sniffing, Tess), we started Pointbreak to give you the best home possible.

By working with expert builders and sub-contractors, we create beautiful, family-friendly energy efficient homes in Canterbury. I have a New Zealand Certificate in Carpentry and am a Licensed Building Practitioner.

We are passionate about getting our customers into better homes. Our knowledge is backed up by membership to the Superhome Movement, New Zealand Green Building Council and being Homestar Practitioners.

I will help you from start to finish in achieving your dream. We look forward to meeting with you to hear how we can help make it a reality, so contact us today to find out more.
