Renovations & Additions


Does your home have good bones, but even better memories?

Family growth, multi-generational living, personal needs or aesthetical tastes. You love your slice of New Zealand and the builders at FBR think that is great!

Why leave when your home can evolve with you?!

"A well planned renovation could be the answer to your needs and that of the family unit or budget." Tasteful, individual renovations on well loved homes is something the FBR Building team feel honoured to work on. They provide the same quality, compliancy and efficiency with any job they take on.

We take into account the era in which your home was built, the style and materials of the existing home, as well as the renovation work when we forecast on your renovation or extension project. Communication is key in any renovation. And Giles fronts up with that, you get his word on it.

As your family grows, so should your home.
An addition is often the best, most affordable way for New Zealanders to meet the growing needs of their family.

Choose qualified builders who will look after the consent process, build and asthetics of your new additon. You can trust FBR Building to provide you with compliant, quality work.

If you have any questions or would like to discuss your ideas on an addition to your home, feel free to call or email Giles Bayley - the company director. Follow FBR on Facebook and Pinterest for inspiration...simply click the link below for all contact details and social media links!

"We purchased a property two and a half years ago that was full of potential but run down, a real project. Renovations were not really our thing so we looked around for builders feeling quite daunted by the size and scale of the project, having never done anything like this in the past.

We met with a few builders and architects and felt pretty disheartened by the estimated costs and architects fees.

Then we met with Giles from FBR.

We felt comfortable from the start, communications were open, frank and honest. He recommended an architectural draftsman and walked us through how they would cost and manage the whole process for us in stages and generally gave us good advice, having listened carefully to what we wanted to achieve.

Eighteen months and three stages later we are settled into our virtually new house, refurbished top to toe. It is all that we had imagined from our initial vision and we couldn’t be more pleased with how it is finished and has turned out. The project has run smoothly and largely according to plan in all respects.

No renovation project is ever ‘easy’ but we honestly can say we expected it to be much worse. Everyone we have dealt with at FBR has been really good to work with, responsive and respectful. Our FBR builders were great, they always went the extra mile for us, so thanks and we would recommend FBR to anyone contemplating building or renovating."
