Last year we employed Nick Gill and the Cove team to build our house on the Waterways in Whitianga.

We have used Nick previously and are familiar and very comfortable with the way he works.

The house is a modest four bed four bath home with a large paved area and a canal front pool.

John Ottaway of Dataplan Waikato designed the house. 

Our objective was to create a property that was easy to maintain, was good for entertaining and had good indoor-outdoor flow.

The challenge was that we were travelling overseas during the principle part of the build. I intended to employ a project manager to look after the job while we were away. Nick talked me out of this, suggesting that projected managers created extra costs and delays.

The build started in May. The slab was poured as we departed for our 4-month overseas trip. The build had a contractual finish date of the 1st of April. Nick, however, said that he would have something that would be usable by Christmas. This, he suggested, would be a house that could be locked up with some bedrooms usable and the outdoor kitchen operating to some extent.

We also employed Nick’s wife Hollie and her company STyla Design to assist with interior design. This proved to be a godsend. Hollie provided swatch boards via Pinterest and Dropbox. As well as managing style, she also co-ordinated the various suppliers and contractors.

The house was completed on the 12 of December with the Code of Compliance coming through on the 31st of January.

I feel Nick and his team have done an incredible Job looking after all facets of the build, finishing well ahead of schedule and communicating with us while we travelled in Europe.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Nick, Hollie and their team to anyone considering a build in the Whitianga area.

I wanted to write to you, to thank you Nick, your project manager Caleb, and all the guys who worked so hard to build my cottage.
I absolutely love it.
As you know I was based in Auckland, and the build was in the Coromandel, which could have be difficult for me.
The whole building process was not only stress free but actually enjoyable, because of your great communication, project management,attention to detail, and coming up with ideas which improved the cottage, even suggesting the perfect exterior paint colour. When I was struggling to find a colour I liked, that the council would approve.
You took the plans and made them better.
I appreciate the way you took a personal interest, listened to my concerns and problem solved for me.
The cottage has been finished to a high standard, and completed on time, I cannot fault it.
Thank you so much.
I can highly recommend you !
