Want to make your mark with one of our Lifestyle house plans?

Whatever section you have or whatever home you are looking to design, Landmark Homes has the knowledge and experience to help you create the home of your dreams! Just ask Landmark Homes customers Kirsten and Sean Hickey.

Having secured the perfect section in Tamahere, the couple began their search for a new home builder. It was a Landmark Homes Showhome that caught their eye.

“You’re only building once, so you want to do it properly,” Kirsten says. “You hear some nightmare stories! We wanted to avoid that, so we chose Landmark Homes.”

The couple chose the Hawea plan and worked alongside Landmark’s design team to modify the plan for their long narrow section. The couple also wanted to add another bedroom and bathroom on the lower floor to accommodate their parents.

The couple was thrilled to have the opportunity to work collaboratively on their home, praising Landmark for their knowledge and expertise.

“They definitely worked hard for their money. I’ll tell you that!” Kirsten says. Ready to design your perfect lifestyle home? Looking to escape the ordinary?
