Design Builders encourages clients to dream a little with a new Hamilton showhome that features hardworking James Hardie products

Buying or renovating a home is one of the most important lifestyle decisions that you make. The experience of the process depends on how well prepared you are for making various decisions, so it is important to do your research before you start.

“Designing and building your own home is one of those outstanding life experiences,” says Jeff Marra, Director of Design Builders Waikato. He describes the process as one of discovery, and says showhomes play a key role in this process.

“Our showhomes provide clients with the opportunity to see and touch both interior and exterior material options and are intended to inspire clients on their own design and build journey. The aim is to provide clarity and trust in their relationship with Design Builders and their new home,” says Marra.

The company’s newest architecturally designed showhome, located at the Meadows in Hamilton, has been created to appeal to the mid to upper end of the market with a range of potential buyers in mind, including young families or couples.

The home demonstrates the attention to detail, quality of workmanship and point of difference that comes with all Design Builders homes.

“We wanted this home to stand out from the crowd, so we have created a modern home with a country twist, in suburban Hamilton,” says Marra. “We have combined a wide variety of textures and materials, and have focused on finding beauty in the unexpected through close attention to detail.”

James Hardie fibre cement products provide one such point of difference inside the home. Products include HardieGroove™ Lining, Axon® Panel, and Villaboard® Lining.

HardieGroove™ Lining has been used on internal walls to create interest with feature walls in the daybed area and entranceway. The product gives the charm of traditional tongue and groove timber panelling, but has all the qualities of a modern James Hardie fibre cement product in terms of durability.

HardieGroove has also been used externally on the flat ceiling as an alfresco soffit. Internally, Axon Panel has been used on the high raking internal ceilings to keep the grooves defined and achieve deeper lines, giving the feeling of lightness and space.

“With its unique design and top quality materials, we hope to demonstrate to our clients that they can achieve an individual design that is not only right for the moment, but will adapt as their lives evolve,” explains Marra.
