When choosing to build our new home we had a choice to go with a housing company or a stand alone builder. After having our plans drawn we choose to go with well known builders ‘Craig Brown Construction’ who have an impeccable reputation for attention to detail. From Craig through to the apprentices, the ideas flowed to make our house a home that is special to us within our budget. We have had several people ask who built
our home and we have proudly told them ‘Craig Brown Construction.
We engaged Craig Brown Construction on our first build. Both Craig and Lia were great to deal with and were really helpful in doing what they could to keep the costs down but not sacrificing on build quality. The house was extremely well put together by the team and their attention to detail and finish was impeccable.

We had Craig Brown Construction build a beautiful tourist cottage in Southshore prior to the earthquakes. Craig and the team showed craftmanship in their work, were reliable, easy to deal with, and we were very happy with the outcome. Sadly, this cottage was red-zoned after the earthquakes and was relocated to Waipara. I’m looking forward to working with Craig and Lia once again on an upcoming house build this Spring
Craig Brown Construction built our House in Churchlea Place, Darfield from late October 2014 until May 2015. The team was professional in all aspects of the build. Communication with us as the client was excellent, workmanship of the highest quality, health and safety onsite adhered to, subcontractors recommended by Craig Brown Construction performed to the same high standard. Landscaping which included concrete work, decking and fencing was also of the highest quality. It was a pleasure to work with the whole team and we have no hesitation in recommending Craig Brown Construction to future clients.
I would like to express my thanks to Craig, Lia and the team at Craig Brown Construction for making our build such a pleasurable experience. Their expertise was evident right from the early stages. They had excellent ideas which were thoughtfully suggested during the design and pricing period, which ensured a smooth, timely build- on budget too! Craig Brown Construction have a reputation for a high level of finishing and the whole team have an eye for ‘details’ which set their homes apart from the rest. This extends to all of the sub trades too. We were made to feel very welcome during site visits and everyone was courteous, polite and happy to show us what they were currently working on. In addition, I would like to thank Craig and Lia especially for being so approachable and accomodating with our requests. Their communication was friendly, professional and they always responded to any queries in a timely manner.
