Plateau Residential - For you

Our Story

Designing homes to suit your site and your lifestyle based in Taupo servicing the Central Plateau area. We listen, advise and design concepts based on your input and our experience. This process allows you to get to know us and for us to get to know you and your family and what it is you are trying to achieve.


Our experience is that it is your site that is the main determining factor in the design of the floorplan, we look at the environmental factors that will need to be considered in conjunction with your design input. The build process can be daunting, our task is to assist you through the process and to achieve a result you are delighted with.

Stuart Wilson

Annette along with her husband are into mountain biking and multisport events so if you are out and about on the Kinloch tracks you will be bound to come across her.

How does it work?


Visit the show home

Drop into the show home or give us a call. Have a chat and get to know our team and what we can do for you. If you’ve got a site, we’ll come check it out. If you’re comfortable with us we can arrange a meeting to establish your key drivers for the build, what inspires you and what the priorities are. Budget is a consideration at this stage so we don’t go developing a concept which you can’t quite stretch to.

Design your home & budget

Once we’ve got a brief, we’ll pull a concept/discussion document together and get you to drop in to
review. Once we’ve got that nailed down, we develop the elevations and details to provide you with an estimate to construct. It’s still early in the process but ultimately everyone has a budget and it’s important we keep this in mind and develop the plan accordingly. 

We’ll be looking at the site in terms of covenants and planning rules in order to identify any issues which may trigger any resource consent application. 

From time to time we’ll require a short form agreement and a deposit to be paid to cover either Geotech investigations and/or Engineering advice required on the site or proposed plan.

Acceptance of estimates / agreements

Once we’ve nailed down the estimate and it’s within the budget scope, we are in a position to sign off the agreement and specifications and get the working drawings completed.

Council consent

We’ll arrange the building consent application and any straightforward resource consent application if required.

Build process

Ground works, floor, frames, roof, interior, finished. Getting underway, as the build progress develops, we will keep you informed of what is happening and making sure all decisions and final fit outs are followed up and confirmed.


Final code of compliance from the council, final sign off, hand over the keys and present to you your brand-new home.

Move in, live happily ever after

But it doesn’t end there, we stand behind our product so should any teething problems with your new home we’re never more than a phone call way.
