Build your next home with Artisan Homes Your local registered Master Builder Home building is as much about understanding the landscape and the client as it is the plan and the materials. From our office in Rolleston, Canterbury our small company has built a huge range of homes that are distinctive, stylish, durable and cost-effective. From clever, compact homes to three bedroom townhouses to large scale, expansive country style homes, our work spans all types of house building. Since 2004 we have carefully built, among other things, a reputation for constructing high quality houses. An artisan is someone who is highly skilled in a particular expertise, a hands-on craftsman – someone who is passionate about the quality results they produce. With decades in the business the team at Artisian Homes have worked in all areas of residential construction. There are obvious differences between building a two-bedroom

home compared to a six bedroom one. Irrespective, our overall approach remains the same. While we have a sound reputation for carefully crafted home building we also are renowned for getting the right result no matter what the challenge. Building with difficult access, looming timelines or tight budgets is just a fact of life for us. All our tradespeople are qualified and registered or licensed. Our abilities to design and build a range of houses have increased over the years, as has our skill and overall capacity. While we don’t have the franchises of our larger competitors we do have their networks and buying power. Which means our clients receive the most costeffective results possible. At Artisan Homes, our passion is building homes for people who appreciate the work that goes into what will, ultimately, be a home they love to live in.
