‘People are paying for a quality product and so we go that extra step with everything we do. I love my job; I’m proud that I’m crafting something that stands the test of time and I’ll be able to show my kids. We’re not just building a house, we’re building a home.’ View more Craftsmanship videos

Eco-smart homes

Lockwood homes are built from radiata pine which is a locally and sustainably sourced solid wood and is a natural, renewable, biodegradable product. Wood is the earth’s most renewable raw material so building with it is vital in the fight against climate change. The more solid wood we use, the more carbon that is stored. The more trees that are grown, the more oxygen is released into the atmosphere, and the better off our world will be. Lockwood homes are durable, strong, ventilated, warm and dry – so they create healthy living environments for you and your family, for good. Read more

ReadyBuilt Home Designs

ReadyBuilt’s pre-built homes offer a premium, high quality, transportable new home build solution, with a fixed price contract so you’re not left with nasty surprises or budget blow outs. Our ReadyBuilt homes are New Zealand made from locally sourced materials, pre-built undercover in our factory, and delivered to your site for a stress-free home build – meaning there are minimal disruptions to the building timeline due to supply issues that other home builds may experience.


The Process

Decide on your ReadyBuilt Plan

The journey to your ReadyBuilt home starts with a visit to our showhomes and a discussion around which plan best suits your lifestyle and site. Once the decision has been made, the journey begins to make the home your own.

Working with your site

We will look at all the information available for your site and arrange a site visit if required. This gives us the chance to identify any possible challenges and if anything arises we will advise you accordingly. Site specific consents will also need to be arranged at this stage. We can leave this process to you, or talk to us about service options to obtain site consents on your behalf.

Finalising your choices

There are many choices available to customise your home. At this point we will discuss your personal preferences and upgrade options including joinery and cladding, roof colour, bathroom and kitchen fit out specifications and upgrades. These decisions need to be made prior to placing an order to ensure a smooth and timely build.

Placing an order

Once you have decided on the colours and fit out of the home, you will sign the fixed price contract and pay a deposit. The unique Lockwood manufacturing process begins and you will be invited to visit our manufacturing facilities to see your home being produced by our passionate team of craftspeople.


After the components have been manufactured, the construction process begins. Because your home is built under cover in the Lockwood yard, there are minimal delays. We will arrange times for you to visit the build or provide progress photos so you can see your home take shape.


As the final fit out of your home nears completion, delivery dates are agreed and set. We can assist with arranging transport and insurance, or leave this to you.

Quality Assurance Check

After the home has been transported to your site, a Lockwood construction specialist will arrange a visit to check the home has been sited correctly and it meets our strict quality control standards.

What we do. For good.
