About Homes By Nest

Homes By Nest never set out to be just another building company. Anyone can do that. Building a home, rather than a house, comes from well thought out and considered craftsmanship. It comes from understanding your needs and wishes, and prioritising those when planning your design. To build a home, your builders need to appreciate the qualities and touches that make a home. We are the family friendly building company. Everyone involved is considered part of the Homes By Nest family. The people working on your lovely new family home won’t just be faces without names, you will personally get to meet everyone who will be collectively on board to create your ideal home.

Bru and Linda from Homes By Nest are family people.  Loving nothing better than having the entire family around for dinners, they truly care about helping others create this same feeling and atmosphere in new homes. This inspires the custom built in furniture such as window seats and bookshelves in all of their designs. The warm sense of belonging that the grandchildren get from sitting on your knee in a comfortable chair beside the bookshelf being read to cannot be bought anywhere, it is created by family. 

“We want you to get the same feeling from your home that we get from ours, you deserve it. Your family home should be a place of happiness, you should actually literally love living in your home, it should never just be a roof over your heads."

At Homes By Nest we will limit the number of builds per year so that we never move away from being able to provide what we promise; Premium Service, Personalised Solutions, Fair Price.

So please, come along and have a chat with us and you can be the judge as to whether you think we can all work together. If it doesn’t feel right for you then let’s shake hands, wish each other all the best and we can go our separate ways. It’s as easy as that. You don’t have to build with Homes By Nest, we just know that if you choose to, you will never regret it.

  • I had the pleasure of working with Bru when I built a second dwelling on my existing property. From the very first meeting I knew that I wanted Bru working on my project as I felt so confident in his ability. Bru is very knowledgeable and practical, and after our initial meeting he went off and did all the due diligence with the local Council. From the time I signed off on my new house plans to the end of the project, he remained involved and was always available to assist me. Not only is Bru extremely competent, but personally, a good, honest person with a great sense of humour and a real desire to make your home dreams come true. I am extremely happy with my new home and I would highly recommend Bru and his business.

  • Bru helped us with plans and specifications for our new home in 2017. From our first meeting until project completion Bru proved knowledgeable and approachable, as well as possessing great listening skills. His friendly and competent personality ensured that our build was achieved hassle free.

    If you are looking to build a new home and want the best service ever Bru comes with our recommendation.

  • Our recent building experience was made hassle free and actually enjoyable by working with Bru. From our first meeting with him, we felt we could trust him to work in our best interests and he continued in this manner through to the completion of our new home. I especially appreciated his help in the design process as he quickly caught on to my ideas and turned them into a workable plan. Good communication throughout the project put us at ease and we are very pleased with the final outcome. Thanks Bru!

  • "It is a pleasure to write a testimonial for Bru Goldfinch.

    We enjoyed working with Bru and his team, he put in a lot of time and effort listening to what we wanted. He presented us with many options, showed us his current projects, told us where we could go to view materials or designs. We came to rely on him and he took away any stress from the process.

    We are now living our dream, in a beautiful home in rural Waiuku from which we operate our business too. Best of all, we have a good friend in Bru. We would happily recommend him to anyone wanting a reliable professional looking out for them in their journey to building their home."

    - Gautam & Rama, Waiuku

  • "We would definitely recommend Bru for any new house build, and wish him well in his future endeavours. If we ever decide to build again, we will certainly look him up to help."
