Homepacks build with Brett Horrell III

We recently spoke with Brett from Horrell Construction about using Homepacks and his latest concept plan build...

What’s your background?

I’m Brett Horrell and I own Horrell Construction Ltd. I started my apprenticeship at seventeen and then went on to start my building company in 2012. I have a team of seven and specialise in new homes and renovations in Geraldine.

Why did you choose Homepacks?

We chose Homepacks as we loved the look of them and loved that we would have these plans to offer to our clients with an edgy look to them.

What reservations did you have before purchasing any Homepacks? 

The price and set up cost was definitely a concern as we didn't know whether it would pay off or not in such a small town. We decided to go ahead and take the risk, and it was definitely worth it; people really love the plans!

What benefits have you found from using our concepts?

The plans are so different to the standard housing companies, so they definitely stand out when advertising and they look great on the website. We have a lot of enquiries throughout New Zealand!

Are your Homepacks plans helping attract more new-builds?

Yes, definitely with Facebook, Instagram, our website and Pinterest.

We've done lots of Homepacks builds now. We also find they also help attract people with their own plans too.

Here's a Homepacks plan Brett & his team recently finished building:

Foundation down.
Looking from the roof, external gutters right around.
Raking ceiling throughout the main living space
Looking back at the master bedroom / Bedroom wing
pre-stained sustainably sourced hardwood by LMA timber.
Main outdoor living. Showing the purple Gib Weatherline -rigid air barrier system.

Custom changes made from the original plan:

The garage wing has been flipped to match the site's entry; the roof changed to a gable (from mono-pitched), and the cladding changed to a pre-stained sustainably sourced hardwood by LMA timber.

How have you find working with Homepacks and choosing your plans?

Awesome service, Sam is great to deal with and has done an amazing job with everything!

Would you recommend Homepacks to others?

We would recommend Homepacks to anybody; we love our plans!

We've already had other builders contact us, and we always say it would be silly not to go ahead with Homepacks!
