The company consists of David, and wife Kirsty, in partnership with DW and AM Gee Builders, along with Steve who is a qualified carpenter and has been working with us for over 10 years, and Jacek who is our newcomer and has come to us from a joinery background. David Wraight Cottages is a small team that work together and have a very supportive team of subcontractors. Designing and building character homes for over 18 years. David Wraight Cottages began building smaller cottages and as systems progressed, moved on to villas and larger character homes and homesteads. Through all of the building changes and OSH requirements, along with earthquakes and engineering processes, it has now drawn us back full circle to building smaller transportable cottages in a yard.
The two Dave's have well over 60 years experience in building between them, and still retain the old fashioned carpentry values of doing the majority of the work themselves. eg. making their own frames, roofing, fitting their own kitchens and showers and much much more, even down to making their own decorative scrolls.
We have now added a larger extendable range to our plans. VIEW HERE
David Wraight Cottages is not a big company, but we are expanding our range all the time. David will sit down with the customer to talk about their needs and will design and price their home. Because David Wraight Cottages designs, prices and builds homes, it can keep our customers informed with what is going on to ensure customers stay within their budget.
We do panelled ceilings and a mix of panelled and grooved walls to give the authentic look of yesterday. This makes the homes warmer and more durable. We believe that our cottages represent the charm and elegance of old New Zealand and this will always hold good resale value. Our clients have often told us that it is easy to on-sell one of our homes, a fact we are proud of.
