City Reconstruction

The addition of a third storey, basement garage, two storey extension and internal lift are just the start of what was carried out to bring this old home back to its glory days.

This old home in Oriental Bay was destined to become high rise apartments. Thanks to a team of designers, architects and the crew at David Prosser Building this house was transformed into a gem to be proud of.

A virtual re-build - with the addition of a third storey, basement garage, two storey extension out the back, three exquisite bathrooms and an internal lift shaft there wasn't anything that was left untouched.

A Home in the Hills

When you can't find exactly what you are looking for … build it from scratch

This bush section in the Lower Hutt Western Hills did not look like a site for a new house when it started out. The owners were driven by the desire to live in an established area, with existing bush and neighbouring houses rather than opting for a new sub-division. Their plans included challenges such as accommodating the existing landscape and a block feature wall running from outside to inside.

Excavation was a challenge, but once this house was out of the ground it was like it had always been there, and the final results were everything the owners could hope for.

Complete Rejuvenation

It is hard to capture the extent of the improvements made to this already beautiful Lower Hutt property.

With the addition of three bedrooms, a double garage with internal access, a rumpus extension, new driveway and gib relining to much of the house this house is now a property that the growing family can enjoy for many years.

The Need to Expand

House extension and alteration

A reasonable sized extension, along with removing some internal walls, created a huge new living space for a growing family. The revamped master bedroom and en-suite bathroom, plus new french doors at the front topped off this renovation. This project is a good example of how a small increase in the footprint of your home with some clever alterations can really improve the interior space.

A Backyard Transformation

Deck design and construction

The available outdoor living space was dramatically improved at this property in Wellington. Based on a basic drawing from the owner, a large deck was constructed around existing concrete retaining walls and French doors. The finished product created a seamless flow from the house to the garden.

Work spaces

Kitchens, Bathrooms and Laundries

The foundation of a great work space is good construction and design. We are always very proud to see the finished product once the hard work is complete, especially if they turn out as sparkly and amazing as these.

Open Plan Bliss

Extension and kitchen renovation

The living space of this home was significantly improved with a small extension and some new windows and doors, topped off with the installation of a beautiful new kitchen. The new open plan layout gives for a great family space, while the large PVC sliding door provides fantastic indoor outdoor flow.

Adding another level

Major renovations transformed this small old state house into something special.

Second storey addition in Lower Hutt. This three bedroom, ex-state house was completely transformed with the addition of a second storey bedroom with walk in wardrobe and ensuite, three sets of French doors on the downstairs level and two decks to finish off the living space.

Dave was brilliant. We found him to be exceptionally responsive (he kept us up to date all the way through, responded to calls quickly and met us at times which were convenient for us), accommodating and flexible with our requests and changes, and very patient as we worked together to build our deck. Would definitely recommend Dave, and work with him again.

Kirsty and Liam, Karori

Dave is an excellent builder and he is fantastic person to have on site too. The finished job is high quality, his rates are extremely competitive, and the site is cleaned up after each day. He gives good advice, is great at being creative and working within a tight budget and exploring different options to get a good cost effective solution. He has been helping us do up our house in stages. It is a wonky old bach house and other builders or contractors have just said pull it down or been frustrated by there being no straight lines, but Dave has been prepared to tackle this unenviable project and work with us to do much needed improvements in incremental stages. He is flexible to tackle issues that come up in a renovation, and nothing is an unsolvable problem for him. He also has lots of contacts in the field and coordinates and manages other trades (sparkies, plumbers etc) to get all aspects of the job done, which is really useful. We are very lucky to have him as a builder and would not hesitate to recommend him to others.

David Prosser transformed our home. Our little 1950s bungalow is now a very comfortable two storey home which we will be proud of for as long as we live here – and that may be for ever. David is a hard worker who is very professional in everything he does. He has vision, in that he knows better than anyone what he is trying to achieve. He is also very consultative. He doesn’t believe he knows everything and he is always willing to discuss ideas with the home owner. We would recommend Dave to anyone looking for skill, vision, and a willingness to satisfy the customer.

We originally hired Dave and his team to replace some rotten weatherboards. They did such a great job we had them back for our large kitchen, dining and laundry renovation. No issue is too big and Dave is really great at listening to our specific requests, and provides his expert advice which we really appreciated as we hadn't done a renovation like this before. Not only this but they clean up after themselves everyday - we would recommend Dave and his team to anyone

R Ashworth, Karori

When we initially asked Dave to provide us with an estimate on what was involved in transforming our back yard with a large deck, all we had was a simple sketch and grand ideas. From this little information, Dave managed to provide us with an accurate quote and a two week timetable for completion. We had no hesitation after this to go ahead with the job. He was professional, reliable and honest. He has a knack for visualising a complex concept and immediately offering a solution. He managed to work within the existing constraints of the land amazingly, with no space wasted, and additional features we would never have thought of.

We are so thrilled with the outcome of Dave's work, just in time for a glorious summer of BBQ's with friends, who have also been very impressed with what we think is the greatest deck we've ever set foot on!

Tom & Gini, Karori

This is a letter of recommendation for Dave Prosser. Dave has been our builder for over 5 years and has undertaken a variety of jobs for us including renovating our previous house, helping us prepare the house for market, and in our new house, fence building, and replacing guttering. No job is too big or too small and Dave has completed every job to a high standard. He provides realistic and sensible advice and is always sensitive to our budget.

We have found Dave to be very reliable, he always turns up when he says he will and is always on time. He is flexible, honest, incredibly polite and very hard working, we often have to convince him to stop and have a cup of tea.

We would have no hesitation in recommending Dave to anyone; he is a great builder and a genuinely nice bloke.

Jacqui Sutherland, Karori

We recently contracted David Prosser Building to help with some cosmetic renovations. For something that would have taken us a long time, the team were incredibly quick. It was refreshing to have a builder in who was reliable and spoke to us in our language. It's also nice to be looking at quality workmanship rather than the uneven surfaces we previously had. Thanks so much for the excellent job

Mr and Mrs Agent, Lower Hutt

Dave built a huge fence for my property to contain our large breed dog - he was super quick, creative in fencing some tricky spaces and did a fantastic job. The end product was of excellent quality and Dave really listened to what we wanted. I would recommend Dave to anyone looking for a job large or small. I've seen him transform a friends kitchen/dining/out door space from out-dated and dark to modern, open, bright with an exceptional finish. He's professional, reliable and highly recommended!
