Planing to build but not sure where to start?
Are you worried about budget blowouts because you’ve hear the horror stories and can’t afford for that to happen to you?
Are you struggling to balance your budget with your wish list?
Do you feel like the building process is long and complicated? Perhaps friends and family have been ‘stung’ before? Or you’re just not sure about the ball park of what it will cost and you want to get an idea to see whether you can afford it or not?
Do you share some of the common frustrations other people have when thinking about getting started with the building process?
1. Where should we start? Do we call an architect or designer and run the risk of getting plans drawn that we can’t afford to build? Or should we contact a builder to get started?
2. Where can we get the best advice? If we start talking with builders are we committed? Or can we set up a meeting to find out what they offer before committing to the build?
3. How do we choose the right builder, architect or designer who is experienced, trustworthy and great to work with?
4. Do we need to get finances in order first? And how much money will we need? And will there be any hidden costs?
5. How long will the build take? And do I have to allow ‘extra’ time in case the building plan goes over schedule?

David & Dianne Lowry's Rural Character Home
The original part of the house is 100 years old and matching character features was very important to us. Right from our first contract with Richard we felt very comfortable with him. We found Richard to be professional,considerate, flexible, forthcoming with suggestions, and easy to get along with. He was also happy to work with our planner, Ross McMillan of McMillan Design.
Living in a house undergoing major renovation has its moments but Richard’s guys made life as comfortable as possible and were always mindful of our needs. We got to know the crew very well over our project and can genuinely call Richard Hull Builders our friends.
The workmanship and attention to finishing detail was exemplary and there were very few concerns to raise in the final inspection. Richard hull Builders willingness to support us and urgently follow up minor issues was great! This relationship remains ongoing several years after project completion.
We renovated again and there was no question who we would use, Richard was the first person we called, and again had a very positive experience. We have no hesitation in recommending Richard Hull Builders to our friends and family.
DAVID & DIANNE LOWERY
John Bennion's New Build
During construction we found Richard Hull and his personnel on site to be excellent to deal with. My wife has commented that Richard always listened to her. Any issues that arose were quickly and effectively dealt with. To give an instance of the quality of co-operation, at an early stage in the construction it became apparent that there was an error in the design drawings and that the quantity of piling was seriously understated. Richard at once said that he would not charge his margin on the extra item. The designer also contributed so that the additional cost was shared by the owner, designer and builder.
The house was constructed to a high standard and in 2008, won two silver awards from the Waikato Registered Master Builders
Association. It frequently attracts favourable comments from visitors.
We have been particularly impressed by the attention Richard Hull has given to following up with us after completion of the house. He has contacted us at intervals to ensure that there are no problems and has carried out promptly the limited number of items requiring remedial work.
It has been a pleasure working with Richard and the other staff at Richard Hull Builders and we would have no hesitation in recommending the Company to other clients.
