We have been in our house now for 4 years. We always enjoy coming home to our warm house with no draughts. The inside temperature is consistent right throughout the house so we have forgotten what it used to be like in a conventional house in winter when you move away from your heated lounge/living area to a cold bathroom and bedroom. Another feature, which we weren’t expecting, is its sturdiness combined with its inherent sound proofing, there is no creaking or groaning in wild windy weather. We sometimes wake in the morning to look out the window to see obvious signs of their having been wild weather in the night, of which we were completely unaware.

You get a house with a healthy environment — there’s no condensation, no mould and no heating costs. It made sense to build this way. I like that you can control the humidity levels and the little things you notice, like the bedding is always dry. Hofmans Builders created a beautiful, high standard home, Steve and Susie and their team were great to work with and we would not hesitate in recommending them to future eHaus clients.

The offices are an Ian Pritchard Architects design and Steve was personally involved in the design phase providing important input ensuring the building not only looked good but also worked well and was cost effective to build. Steve has a good eye for design and is prepared to voice his views if asked for. Thanks to Steve’s input, during the course of the project we modified a number of features that improved the overall product without adding any cost.

We have recently completed a renovation project, managed and rebuilt by Hofmans builders and we cannot recommend them highly enough. From the quote process through to completion we found them professional and upfront, throughout this project we felt confident that our home would be completed to a high standard.
–Joanie & Al Simmers
Being first time house builders we were new to the whole build process. From the outset Steve’s approach was professional and thorough. A full schedule was provided as a quote, whereas other builders just provided us a piece of paper with a figure on it. This meant no surprises!
–Phil and Tracey Morgan
Building a house is inherently stressful but also exciting and we very much appreciated having Steve guide us through it and ultimately create the home that we had dreamed about.
In 2012 we entered into a contract with Hofmans Builders to build a new dwelling for us in Strandon New Plymouth. Steve Hofmans was extremely helpful to us in regards to the design and detailing of our new house and his suggestions that we accepted from him have all turned out to be excellent choices.
–Neville & Lyn Goldsworthy
We found Steve was very personable and easy to work with, and we are very pleased with the standard and quality of the work. Prior to the build Steve spent a lot of time with us working out details and exploring many different options. He was easy to talk to and explained technical details clearly.

Steve Hofmans was extremely helpful to us regarding the design and detailing of our new house. His suggestions, that we accepted, have all turned out to be excellent choices. During all stages of the build we were constantly kept up to date with the progress and this made us feel that we were part of the process. The actual build was of a very high standard and his staff proved to be excellent builders. To receive a ‘GOLD AWARD’ at the Registered Masters Builders 2013 Awards ceremony was just reward for his excellence in workmanship, creativity, and innovation and would have no hesitation recommending Hofmans Builders.
–Neville & Lyn
We enjoyed the building process, love our new home and have no hesitation in recommending Hofmans Builders to anyone looking to build a quality home.
