Great homes start in Auckland South

Craig Shorrock’s involvement in the building industry in Auckland spans more than 30 years, giving him a wealth of construction knowledge and a passion for problem-solving.

Beginning his career as a quantity surveyor, Craig later moved on to project management, spec building and then onto contract house building. The excellent end results of his builds were quickly recognised and Craig developed a reputation for high quality recladding of homes, which has led to over 200 house reclads in the past 10 years.

With Stroud Homes, Craig is now focussing once more on building new homes. For Craig, this delivers the satisfaction of building something from scratch and the sense of pride achieved with the final product. With decades of experience building in the Auckland region, Craig brings a wealth of knowledge regarding local condition, suppliers, sub-contractors, and city council regulations.

The AMAZING build next door!

Happy customer Michelle recently sent us this review…

I’m so impressed with what’s happening next door! The whole project is progressing incredibly efficiently.

James and Liam (and Brendon) are REALLY nice guys and as you say, take great pride in their work. They are very considerate of us. It’s great hearing them interact with eachother in such a collegial and respectful manner.

James is a very clever building professional who seems to go the extra mile! His interactions with all of the other trades are fantastic too… welcoming, helpful and clear.

Of course NONE of this would be happening without you behind the scenes Craig. You have facilitated a very well-oiled ‘house-building’ machine ! I could never have anticipated such a positive experience as what has occurred thus far.

Thank you so much.

New Zealand’s First Licenced Building Practitioner!

Craig can proudly say he was invited by the Government to become New Zealand’s first licensed building practitioner after the Licensed Builders Practitioner Scheme began 12 years ago. He received his license from Shane Jones, who was the Minister of Housing at the time:


Why Stroud Homes?

Craig and his wife, Clare Shorrock decided to jump on-board the Stroud Homes team in order to have the ability to compete with other home building franchises in New Zealand and to leverage off the strong brand Stroud Homes has been able to establish in Australia. With a wide selection of home designs and an incredible range of inclusions, Stroud Homes Auckland South can make your dream home a reality.

What Craig brings to Auckland South as a new home builder

Craig’s goal as a Stroud Homes builder is to have a building company in Auckland South with a stellar reputation of being a pleasant experience, second to none for quality and workmanship. He is also striving to become the most approachable building company in the area.

Craig has been helping homeowners repair their largest asset for the past 10 years. Recladding and repairing local homes has given Craig a huge appreciation of a homeowner’s connection with their build. Craig understands implicitly that his clients need transparency because they want to understand the process as much as possible.

Craig is great at explaining things in simple terms to assist the homeowner with understanding various aspects of a build and providing sound advice every step of the way.

This approach to construction has given him an attention to detail which is second to none.

“I have a passion for building and organising the building process so it is a smooth and care-free experience for the client.”

Where they’ll be building

Craig predicts the suburbs of Alfriston, Botany, Beachlands, Brookby, Clevedon, Drury, Flat Bush, Hunua, Mangere, Otahuhu, Papatoetoe, Takanini, Papakura, and Whitford to be the new hot spots for families to move into in 2020. Craig has put together some very desirable Auckland house and land packages in these locations featuring some of the most popular home designs.
