At the heart of Heyhoe Builders is Chris Heyhoe and his team of craftsmen. Chris was born in Wellington and has always had a passion for building. “In kindergarten I received my first hammer and a bucket of nails and that was it for me.” He went on to be a carpenter and bought his first house at age 22.
He developed a keen eye for detail and design as well as an understanding of all aspects of the business. That first purchase turned into a thriving business creating unique custom homes.
His wife Joanna who also works with the business credits him with being the design specialist. “Chris takes the time to make sure things are done right and done beautifully.”
One of the other strengths of the company is the eight members of his on site team. Their loyalty and long term service with Chris ranges from five to twenty plus years.
He also has well established relationships with all of his tradesmen who understand Chris’ expectations of quality.
For Chris he understands that he is not just building houses he is building homes. “When I partner with a client I will walk the site with them discussing their vision and offering my input and the reasons behind it. I want them to benefit from my years of experience and help to bring the customer’s dreams to life. I want to offer options that they might not have considered to enhance their lives. I want to build quality homes for quality people”.
