Common Mistakes People Make in Auckland Regarding Designer Homes


The opportunity to build a custom house in Auckland is not one that comes around very often, and it often represents a substantial investment in your future. As a result, you should place a strong emphasis on planning and ensuring that all the work is correct at every stage.

In our years of experience, we’ve seen many homeowners fall prey to pitfalls that can be tough to avoid. Watch out for these errors:

  • Passing up a potentially excellent site due to topographical difficulties:
    We’re well-versed in sloping block construction, and our innovative architects can produce split-level designs that make the most of the plots that are available to you. Don’t miss out on a solid investment in land just because it looks a little tricky. 
  • Over-investing in one area to the detriment of others:
    It’s okay to prioritise certain wish-list items, but don’t let a pool or a fireplace consume your entire budget: create a high level of quality throughout your new dwelling.
  • Wrangling with subcontractors on your own:
    Coordinating the many trades that work on a home is not easy—you can lose track of what must happen and when
With the Goldline Construction team working on your project, you’ll always be able to count on receiving intelligent insights and clear guidance to support your successful project.

The Benefits of Working with a Designer House Builder in Auckland

Let’s take a quick look at why you should rely on a dedicated service provider in Auckland for custom home design. Why should you work with just one business?

  • It keeps the vision for the home consistent. Remember the phrase “too many cooks spoil the broth”? The same can be said about home design. With one team on the job from start to finish, you minimise the chances of unacceptable deviations. 
  • It helps you maintain a schedule that fits with your plans. Stay on target and avoid schedule slippage as much as possible by working with a team that understands how to budget their time appropriately.
  • Rely on a team that is well-equipped to handle unforeseen circumstances. While new builds don’t often reveal as many surprises as a renovation project might, there will still be bumps in the road. A very experienced custom builder will have seen many of these issues before and will already have solutions in mind for you. 

What Sets Goldline Construction Apart in Creating Custom Built Small Homes in Auckland?

With all that said, why should you opt for a partnership with a firm such as ours? We’re proud to say that we stand out in other ways, including complete support for your vision, experience in custom builds, and exceptional job-site coordination. Our experience and longevity in the industry are strong reasons to partner with us, but there is much more to our difference than history: 

  • Our ability to provide designs that meet your expectations, no matter how traditional or non-traditional the new home that you desire is. Our architectural designers look forward to the opportunity to sit down with you for a detailed discussion of what you’d like to see. Before we break ground, we lay out a clear vision for your home complete with detailed renders.
  • Our proven process for developing custom new builds. We’ve learned how to discover what you want, even when you aren’t sure exactly what it is. By taking the time to learn from you, and by keeping each client at the heart of our process, we ensure that the project remains about what you want—not solely an architect’s vision.
  • Our ability to coordinate teams on the job site. There is a seemingly endless amount of material and workforce potential to manage when construction commences, but we know how to keep it all coordinated and proceeding smoothly.
