    When we decided that we wanted to build a holiday home on the banks of the Waikato River we knew we wanted to do it right. We wanted our home to blend with the native setting and not conflict with it. We wanted a home that made a statement, we wanted a home like the ones that we saw in the brochures. CreativeArch met all of our dreams and desires.

    Our home is all of the above, and has been featured in numerous publications. The home is functional and just works extremely well for us. We enjoyed working with CreativeArch and credit them with creating a home for us that we are extremely proud of.

    CreativeArch listened to what we were wanting and absolutely delivered on that. Our home incorporates unique features and areas that allow us to enjoy every inch of the home. With a teenage family we needed a home that gave us space as well privacy; we needed large entertaining areas but also wanted a cosy holiday feeling. The plan that CreativeArch presented us was just perfect.

    We have no hesitation in recommending CreativeArch to any prospective customers.
