Finding the perfect fit

Building your dream home is an exciting prospect.

You’ve envisioned the home design, the layout, the colours, and the little details that will make it uniquely yours.

However, the process of making that dream a reality can come with some challenges, one of which is ensuring that the design you love fits your section and complies with local council rules and regulations.

This is where Stroud Homes local home builders in the Bay of Plenty, can help!

Avoid Disappointment

It can be difficult to determine if a design you like actually fits your section and if it will comply with the local council rules and regulations.

This often leads to disappointment and heartbreak for many homeowners as they fall in love with a particular design only to find out that it encroaches on setbacks.

At Stroud Homes, we understand how disheartening this can be and we want to help you avoid this situation.

We work with you using our latest software to place the designs that you love onto a section. We can indicate to you in a matter of minutes whether the design complies with and fits the section.

This allows us to report to you if the setbacks and site coverage meet the requirements of the local council. We take away the uncertainty and provide you with peace of mind.

Design fitting

Not only can we indicate whether a design fits your section and complies with local council regulations, but we can also determine if there is town sewer, stormwater, and water supply available.

We will draw up some indicative site contours to work out the slope of the section.

By meeting with the team and Stroud Homes Bay of Plenty, we can show you which of our designs that you love will work for your section.

We aim to make the process as simple and stress-free as possible.


Even though we can gather a lot of information from our software, we still do not include any PC Sums. We will gather the appropriate Contour Surveys by our qualified surveyors and undertake ground tests by our qualified Geotech.

By engaging these consultants, we can incorporate this information into the design and offer you a 100% real price quote. We want to be transparent with our customers and ensure that there are no hidden surprises along the way.

We want to make the process as stress-free and enjoyable as possible for you.
