Feature Home
The Olsen Home

When it came to building our newly opened Marshland show home, we wanted to create a home that showcased both uniqueness and quality craftsmanship. At just over 242 square metres, it’s a spacious home with a premium feel. Although available as a concept plan the Olsen, like our other plans, is designed to also inspire your build and can be a base for your own design to suit your style, section and budget. 

The ceiling height throughout the home has been increased to 2550 millimetres, and this, combined with a pitched ceiling in the lounge, gives the home an incredible feeling of spaciousness and lightness.

Gabled rooflines and the Rockcote Integra plaster system give simple smooth lines to the exterior of the home. Feature cedar cladding complements the exterior look, and at the entry this runs beautifully from outside to inside to create that feeling of flow into the home.

“We wanted to build a family-friendly living experience in Christchurch that has a modern design and encompasses some of the latest in-home design trends that we’re seeing.”

The stone benchtop combined with timber laminate features in the kitchen, tiled bathrooms and quality fixtures throughout, including brass tapware and timber veneer vanities, are some of the stunning features this home has on display.

Further highlights include the flexible open floor plan and quality outdoor entertaining area with plenty of natural light to ensure that every room feels warm and welcoming. The home also incorporates features required to meet the new energy efficiency regulations with superior window joinery, glazing and insulation products.

“All this ensures an eco-friendly and cost-effective living space,” says John Baugh, our General Manager.

“Just as we do for our clients, we carefully crafted each room from the elegant master bedroom to the spacious open plan kitchen, dining and living areas.”

John and our Design Manager, Abbey, acted as our own client in the design of the new show home. They worked with our colour consultant, kitchen designer and other consultants to achieve this bespoke look.

“Building the show home was a great experience for us to see the build process through the eyes of our clients. We liaised with our suppliers and contractors and experienced the service and communication every step of the way,” says John.
