Living large

After the pandemic, New Zealand families are craving more space than ever and many are opting to buy acreage and build lifestyle and ranch styled homes.

Lifestyle homes are perfect forever homes for many of Stroud Homes Queenstown’s clients with plenty of room and large patches of land sections available in the Central Otago region.

However, it’s important that home owners keep in mind that so much more comes into the cost when building on acreage, on top of the build…

Septic tanks & water systems

One of the many choices you may be faced with when building is connecting to sewer lines or adding a septic tank to remove waste from your home, and installing water tanks and pumps to bring the water to the house.

Your home builder will also have map out soak pits for storm water, surveys of the site and geo for the ground whether the site needs full earth taken out and better earth bought in for building on.

Over the years Stroud Homes have built hundreds of individual family homes, many of them large lifestyle home and acreage home designs with large water storage tanks, household sewage treatment plants, swimming pools and large shed installations.

Our team helps clients install their own septic tank or connect to sewer lines and we’d be happy to discuss each with you.
