When you’re dealing with Jennian Homes, you’re dealing with a locally owned and operated team of professionals with a long history in the building industry.
What’s more, you get the security that comes with dealing with the owner of the business, one that is supported by a loyal construction team, trades and suppliers. With the ability to build any type of home across a wide range of budgets, you can get the house to meet your needs, from entry level to a designer home and everything in between. The Jennian Homes process is designed with attention to detail in mind; a clear 11 step process that ensures you get the home of your dreams and know exactly what to expect every step of the way. So how does this all come together? Step one involves what you want your home to look like; the style you want, how many bathrooms and bedrooms you need, with a great range of plans to select from.
Step two is time to gather your thoughts. You have your own login to get constant communication and pictures, ensuring you are up to play with any exciting updates on your building adventure. Step three is a personal consultation. It’s time to tell Jennian about you. Your personal consultant is there to listen to your needs and aspirations on the journey to creating your dream home. When it comes to step four, it’s time to choose the right house design for you. Choose a plan or create a masterpiece from scratch. Step five: Money talks. Based on your requirements, Jennian will put together an estimate.
Step six is where the drawing begins and your dream home starts to take shape. Step seven is time for the quote and, once you’re happy, it’s final quote time. Step eight is when permission is granted and you get to sit back and relax while Jennian takes care of the requirements needed to get building underway. Step nine – your dream home gets started! Step 10 is the big day; here come the keys! Then, by step 11, you’re living the dream.

Reflecting Jennian Homes Canterbury North’s solid reputation and strong commitment to excellence, the team took home three Golds at the Registered Master Builders 2018 House of the Year Awards last month.
The accolades included Gold for a beautiful four-bedroom residence in the Resene New Home up to $450,000 category, and another two Gold awards for two display homes in the GIB Show Home category. The show homes are located in Rangiora and Rolleston. Client Liaison Sue Prendergast says the team was proud and honoured to receive recognition for their work. “We are thrilled – the homes we entered really showcase our high level of finishing and design.”
Owner and General Manager Dwayne Prendergast, and Operations Manager Paul Jenkins, oversee the day-to-day running of the Canterbury North franchise – from enquiry and sales, through to completion and handover. “We are very hands-on and involved throughout every stage of the process – our level of commitment to communication with our clients is exceptional, so they know exactly what’s happening at all times and there are no surprises.”
Providing several build choices, from house and land packages, to a range of design and build options, the business also offers new home build seminars for potential clients. “Because clients have to make around 400 or so choices throughout the design and build process, we want to make sure they are informed from beginning to end – to make it as easy as possible for them right from the start.”

Congratulations! You’ve decided to build a new home. The next step involves whittling down those Instagram and Pinterest image collections, and choosing the design features of your bricks and mortar, or weatherboard and stone, to make your home dreams come true.
You’ve actually got some 500-600 decisions ahead of you – it could be daunting, but not when you know that Jennian Homes has developed the staggeringly simple but so sophisticated concept of Studio J Design Centre, located at 212 Main South Road.
The stunning centre is designed to replicate a house, setting up the decision-making process in a logical order that you literally walk through. You begin ‘outside’ the house where different cladding options are displayed, along with roofing, landscaping items, decking and even the garage door.
Progress through the front door and a gorgeous full kitchen is installed, but that’s just the beginning. Set up for you are all of the laminate, benchtop, tile and handle samples. You pull them out, lay them together, add and subtract, mix and match. It’s a fully interactive process enabling you to trial the visuals, sounds, and feel of your internal materials. You will also see some of Jennian’s suppliers’ newest products on display.
Next are curtain and carpet samples to mix and match with your kitchen choices. Mouldings, architraves, switches and door handles follow, and even the different ways your insulation can be installed. The Fairview room displays joinery styles, while the Freedom Room showcases wallpapers. Door, wardrobe, shower, bath and vanity selections complete your experience.
The team sees the design centre as a step up from the display home experience, because you have the range of options before you and it is interactive. But the company also recognises that you want to know about flow from room to room, and the indoor/outdoor dynamics. There are two beautiful display homes: one at 7 Lemonwood Drive at Farringdon in Lincoln, and the other at 9 Westpark Drive at Westpark in Rangiora, open Wednesday to Saturday 12pm-4pm.
Working from Kaikoura to Rakaia, the team at Jennian is thrilled with the quality of its trades and suppliers: they have not been able to fault them. Every building journey is different, at Jennian yours can start with a trip to a display home or Studio J, a visit to the website or a chat with one of their friendly and knowledgeable sales team.
The company offers a design and build service, choose from the existing ‘Ready Range’, or bring your own plans. Whether you’re are first-timer making clever decisions with your Kiwisaver nest egg, or looking forward to a high-end architectural home, the scope of Jennian Homes means the team can bring your vision to expectation to reality.
