We recently spoke with Andre from Cassa Homes about using Homepacks and one of their concept plan builds...
I have been building for 15 years. We formed our company, Cassa Homes, in 2010 and now have seven staff. Based in Whitianga in the Coromandel, we do new residential builds ranging from high-end holiday homes on the Whitianga waterways to entry-level family homes.
We chose Homepacks concept plans for our business because the style of design resonated with our own vision for design and style. We want to create a niche that set us apart in our area. We needed to build our brand and help create an overall feel for our company.
Would the cost pay off? Would clients like the plans as much as we did?
We made the decision to go ahead as we believed it would be a good investment in our business growth.
Improved overall business recognition, got feedback on our website, our designs, more work coming in.
Gives us a point of difference, helps us attract clients that have the same design ideas as us.
The original concept was 190sqm; We increased the overall size by 15sqm. We moved the laundry into the garage and widened the entranceway. Also, the cladding was changed from Espan to Board and batten with a stain finish.
"It saves a huge amount of time! You're not having to reinvent the wheel"
"Homepacks has allowed our small building business to take off! Instead of just renovations and contract work, we have been able to sign up new builds and make a name for ourselves"
