We can highly recommend Greg and his team at Oswald homes. Greg’s excellent communication skills and high level of work quality ensured our new build project went smoothly, ran on time and was a joy to undertake. The Oswald team and their choice of subcontractor/craftsmen used on the project, embraced our wants around “not the normal” cladding and allowed us to add our unique style to the home in several ways. Completing a 5 bedroom, two storey home in eight months during Covid times was a true accomplishment for everyone involved. We couldn’t be happier and would most definitely use Oswald Homes for any future projects.

We recently engaged Oswald Homes to carry out extensive renovations on our home. We found Greg’s team very professional in their approach and workmanship and were considerate to our needs as we continued to live in the house. As situations arose, the team came up with practical solutions drawn from their experience, which saved money and added innovation to the build. They were friendly, tidy, and obliging. Likewise with the subbies, who worked in well with Greg’s timetable, so the job flowed smoothly with no undue delay- in fact we have retained them all for our own needs. We would have no hesitation in recommending Oswald Homes, and would engage Greg in the very first instance if we were looking to build in the future.

This was the fourth home we have built and up until now we had always used a family builder, however this time around we decided to use a local builder for our new build in Waihi Beach. From day one Greg was awesome to deal with, easy going and professional. We met on site, discussed our requirements and vision and he took it all on board with the initial planning and consultation stage. He also used his industry knowledge and flair for design to suggest options and ideas we hadn’t considered. Even during the current situation with building material shortages and delays the job ran smoothly and Greg was professional and organised enough that the whole job ended up without any major issues. His great communication skills meant we were always kept in the loop and regularly updated during the building process also working in well with our chosen architect. Greg’s friendly, easy going team of employees showed great workmanship and their attention to detail was second to none. They were also not afraid to pull some long days to ensure jobs were completed on time to prevent any delays for other contractors. Overall we were extremely satisfied with our new home, it was exactly what we wanted and the overall experience with Oswald Homes exceeded our expectations. We would highly recommend them to anyone looking to build a new home.
