We have had dealings with Lockwood - Tuohy Homes since 2003 when they built our health clinic. Our experience was very pleasant and they took the stress out of the whole process, including the work the sub-contractors carried out. The management and staff were professional in their dealings with us. They were extremely helpful, co-operative, reliable and work was completed on schedule. We are thrilled with our building. Because of our positive experience and the respect we have for their work, we have engaged them to develop our plans and build our new centre in Cannons Creek. I have no hesitation in recommending them for any building projects they undertake. - Charlene Williams, Manager, Ora Toa health Unit
Just a short note from Pat and myself to say thank you very much to you and all your staff for providing this wonderful home we enjoy today. For us to be able to get this designed home was a dream of ours and T.H.L. Has helped it all come true. All your staff, and sub-contractors were great, always helpful, obliging and willing at all times to provide advice. Andrew, Mike and Taa were excellent, as was Hugh, Chris and Co, the painters, plasterer, and the drainlayer, and overseeing it all in a marvelous manner we had the redoubtable Alex. We are also very appreciative of the generosity we experienced from you and the Company on some parts of the project. We can only say that whenever we are asked, Tuohy Homes Ltd. will be given the best ever recommendation from Pat and myself. - Pat & Peter Campbell
Brent & Jeanette, We’d like to thank you and the team for helping us to build our dream bach. With Lockwood providing the design / specification service it made the whole process much easier. With it we saved so much on an architect, money we now spend on a quality place we call home. It has been a pleasure to work with Ross in that regard. He’s knows the Lockwood product and the software end to end which makes him efficient and a valuable contributor to the end result. He has been patient enough to work through the iterations and assertive enough with valuable input. The end result is a true gem we can both be proud of.Nick and his team worked steadily and quickly on realising the drawings. It has surprised us to see how fast construction went and we have appreciated your flexibility when we requested these last minute changes to make it an even better place.In all the process has been a very positive experience, a reflection on Tuohy Homes’ management, staff, contractors and company ethos. We have appreciated your honest and open approach. Good, clear, and speedy communication. All of you have been very accessible and helpful.The home has a fabulous feel to it. It is a pleasure to travel up to from Wellington when the weekend comes around. We’ve had nothing but good feedback from our visitors.For those considering using Tuohy Homes we would say: “you’re in good hands”.Thanks again to the whole team.Yours Sincerely,- Theo van Schoonhoven & Anja Geelen CLICK HERE to view a gallery of this build
"We are sitting in our new Lockwood home designed and built by ‘Tuohy Homes’. Warm, snug, quiet, restful, minimal maintenance and with the knowledge that the house we occupy is resistant to earthquakes. What more could we want. Well, just one more thing – build the house within the budgeted figure which is exactly what happened!
We provided the initial plan draft, which together with Tuohy Homes expert design team was then perfected, with a wonderful build experience to achieve our dream home.
Living in the adjacent property gave us the opportunity to view every stage of its construction. We had already landscaped a large part of the section and had established trees and shrubs so it was important that the site clearance was carried out with care. We could not have asked for better service and the work done also made our future landscaping easier. Watching the 60 odd piles being driven and seeing the foundations laid made us realise just how secure the house was going to be and with a finish on the concrete floor we could dance on!
The house components arrived and after a day of thoroughly checking the components the builders started construction and within a few days our new home took shape. It was fascinating to watch how each piece locked tightly into place illustrating again how strong the house was going to be! Construction was also very accurate and fast!
Team work is obviously an entrenched feature of a Tuohy Lockwood construction with the plumber first on the scene before the foundations were poured so that all the pipe work was in exactly the right service areas. Each tradesman arrived at the time he was required to ensure progress was not disrupted. It was so very rewarding to see it come together with such precision and we appreciated the various skills of all those involved.
For us, the essence of the Lockwood is its warmth, not just the ambience of the timber finish but the result of good design and insulation all of which has led to minimal artificial heating. And sitting here, we can enjoy mentally creating characters and creatures out of the knots in the wood!
Thank you sincerely Tuohy Homes for our wonderful low-maintenance Lockwood home." - Len and Pam Tong
