BUILDING MY OWN HOME ON A BUDGET
5 TIPS FOR CREATING THE DREAM KITCHEN
The Riva Story
For us, a home is more than a house. Homes are where families are nurtured and memories made.
We built the home we live in, and we know what a complex and worrying business building your own home can be.
So when we started Riva Homes, we started by asking ourselves: if we were building a new home now, what would we want?
We decided that we’d want to have a builder we could trust. That’s key. We’d also want to be given all the information we need in a simple way we could understand.
We’d want to work with people who really listened to us, and were genuinely helpful. So we set out to make those values the foundations of Riva Homes.
Treating customers as people, not numbers.
Riva Homes was born when Gerad, a Master Builder with 20 years’ experience under his belt, saw a gap in the market.
Together, Danielle and Gerad started Riva Homes with a mission in mind: to create homes that Kiwi families want – not what builders say they can have.
We Build Trust
First, we start by listening: we get to know your family and help create the vision for your home – no cookie-cutter solutions here!
Then, we support you to design a dream home that suits your family’s needs.
Next, we’ll help you calculate the costs to suit your budget and agree on a price with no hidden costs.
Third, once the build is underway we’ll communicate with you clearly at every step so you feel informed and can breathe easy, knowing we’ll deliver and by when. We work with like-minded tradespeople who care as much as we do, and we approach the build as an extended team.All the way along, we’ll give you straight-talking advice and information, anticipating your questions before you’ve even asked. At Riva Homes, we’re confident in our expertise, and we’re happy to pass it on to you. We’d love to work with you to create your dream home, just the way you want it.

“The quality of the service from Riva Homes was 5/5. They said yes to anything we asked of them and the quality of the build itself was excellent. Everyone says our home is the best in the street. It has the WOW factor!”
