In early 2010, we contacted Zayne Kerr to build us a new house in Brooklands. The house design is modern “take” on the classical Oakleigh design (a Rangiora icon) and thus much more complex than a simple “box”.
Previously I have project managed and help build the house we currently live in, as well as building a number of greenhouses, shadehouses and utility sheds on my plant nursery. All through the construction of the house we found Zayne helpful, respectful and technically thorough. We were more than happy with the way Zayne and his crew carries out the build and I was impressed by the care and interest they took in the house and the suggestion they made to improve the building and construction.
While the floor of the house was damaged in the recent earthquake, the fact that there is very little to the structure of the house is a testament to the way in which it was constructed; some houses nearby were damaged beyond repair.
I would recommend Zayne’s to anybody who is looking for a builder.
