I first met Steve Brackenridge in 1996 when I was looking for a builder in Omaha to take on the construction of a new beach house for my family. I did not know any builders in the area at the time and approached several from the signs that were in front of houses under construction. I decided on Brackenridge Builders as they were the most professional and easiest to deal with. I was not disappointed and ended up with the house I wanted on time and on budget.

In 2000 we were looking at a section in Orewa but before purchasing it I phoned Steve to see if he would build our new house in which we wanted to live in for some time to come, we wanted a builder that we knew we could trust to build the house we wanted .Steve said he would so we purchased the section. Steve knew that I was very fussy about detail, I work in commercial interiors, and his crew of carpenters and supervisors picked up on problems and solved them before I even became aware of them. We ended up with a house, again on time, that surpassed our dreams, which we will spend many years in.

Steve approached us and asked if we would mind if he entered our house in the Master Builder’s house of the year competition. We agreed and our house went on to win the Auckland region and then the National competition in our category. This competition is based on quality workmanship and Steve Brackenridge deserved this award for the work and eye for detail that went into the construction of our house.
