By choosing the right construction methods, you can get a more comfortable, weathertight, and durable home.
While timber frame is still the most common system used for New Zealand homes, there are alternatives - some of which offer benefits such as increased durability and superior insulation.
The way you or your building contractors manage your building site is also important. A well-managed site is safer, more efficient and better for the environment. What's more, the construction process can be managed to minimise waste - saving on materials and landfill costs.
