Kitset Houses, Barn Style Homes, House Barns and Cottages

For most of us creating a home from scratch is a dream come true but it also can be a daunting task. Customkit have made this process easy with a range of readymade kitset building solutions of standard designs with smaller one bedroom homes to larger single and two storey dwellings, or with our range of traditional American barn style homes.  Using an existing plan is a quick, convenient and easy way to start the process.
We have a home style and floor plan to suit every lifestyle and situation as our houses are designed for urban/city living, lifestyle blocks, farms or as holiday homes, and/or rental units.

If you have your own ideas these plans can be changed or altered to suit your personal situation and individual tastes to create an exclusive house plan just for you and your family.
Most of our customers take one of our ‘ready made’ plans as a starting point and then make changes to suit their particular circumstances.
Customkit Buildings has  two decades working with clients and satisfying their individual needs.  During this time we have learned that no two customers are the same.  For this reason each building is tailor made to the customer’s requirements from the initial design and draft plans right through the construction process.
Where Do I Start?
If you are looking for a barn style house start with our two storey homes.  Most of our two storey homes were originally derived from our barn range with people wanting to live in a “Traditional Wooden Barn”.  This will give you some inspiration and shows how you can adapt our barns to suit your requirements.

We also have examples of a wide range of kitset single level homes and conventional double storey kit set houses here on our website.   We have a standard range of designs which we are continually updating.  For those of you wishing to be a little different and wanting more input into your project, our in house design and sales team will help you realize your dream.
Customkit use only the best available products and all materials used are manufactured and supplied by New Zealand companies and have been designed to  blend naturally into the environment and are designed to suit New Zealand conditions.
Customkit offers a range of building options from the supply of shell only kitset packages where you can use your own builder, right through to using a Customkit Network Builder who can manage your project for you.  Click here for more details.
