Steve Ransfield, the founder of Villa Homes Ltd, is a qualified builder who started renovating old villas and bungalows in central Auckland in the early 1990s. Steve spent about 12 years doing these renovations and during this time, several people asked him "Can you build me a new villa from scratch?" Thus the idea of Villa Homes Ltd was born.
Steve has put together some classic villa plans, in the style of a traditional square bay villa with a hipped roof. These plans are the starting point for each of the new homes he builds. But because every client wants something slightly different, Steve can adapt the basic plans to suit exactly what you have in mind. He can also modify the design to fit your particular site, taking into account the slope, position for the sun and other important factors.
Villa Homes employs craftsmen builders and associated trades people, so you are guaranteed of a superior job. They use traditional building methods, where possible, including cutting and nailing timber on site.
All homes are built from pine weatherboard, milled in Rotorua and pre-primed on all four sides, to ensure the timber lasts forever. As Steve explains "We want our homes to be still standing in 100 years' time, just like the original villas are"
