On-site consultation
We meet with you on-site to listen to your ideas, discuss what’s possible and offer advice on local planning requirements and budget. In the meantime, we encourage you to create a ‘vision scrapbook’ to help you capture the ideas of what you want. This may mean gathering samples and clippings of colours, textures, designs, fittings, finishings and lifestyle touches, like pools and spas or WiFi controlled underfloor heating – everything you might like to incorporate into your extension or new build.

Henry Brown Registered Builders

Preliminary design
You’re invited to sit down with our architectural designer to brief them on your ideas and develop a conceptual plan for your project. Bring your ‘vision scrapbook’ along so that you and our architectural designer can begin to sketch your dream finish. You are most welcome to choose your own architect or architectural designer. We would also be happy to make some recommendations.

Martin and Nicola

  • You couldn’t ask for more than the drive and attention to detail!

    Lisa Webb

    “As an architect, you couldn’t ask for more than the drive and attention to detail he poured into creating a beautiful, simple, flexible living space.

    Henry Brown & Co Ltd ensured the job proceeded without stress, delays or problems. I loved being warm and cosy in the house, watching the snow falling, absorbed by the beauty of the mountains.”

  • We needed outstanding workmanship. We got it.

    Janet Muir

    “We wanted to build a simple timber holiday home that would both belong to and reflect the power of the surrounding mountains.

    Because we planned to use alot of exposed timber and concrete, attention to detail and finish was imperative through out the building process.

    We needed outstanding workmanship. We got it. We love our alpine home. It is warm, inviting and we are thrilled with the wow factor it produces in visitors as they enter.”

  • Henry Brown and Co. have completed six renovations and one new build and each time have exceeded our expectations!

    Tex Edwards

    “As a property investor, I needed a builder that understood the particular requirements of renovating investment property and the need to make a return.

    It was essential that each build must be completed within a reasonable budget and to my expectations.

    So far Henry Brown and Co. have completed six renovations and one new build and each time have exceeded our expectations.”

  • Richard and his team were so great to work with that we have used them on every project!

    William Peters

    “I love buying and renovating homes to my standard and within my budget. I’ve done it 4 times in the last 15 years.

    We needed a builder who could work with our “creative” air and adapt to change along the way. We also needed someone we could trust since we lived in the home throughout the renovation.

    Richard and his team were so great to work with that we have used them on every project. When I do my next project we will be calling on the team again.”
