Hi, I'm Stuart Wood owner & managing director of Home Builders BOP Ltd.

Our passionate team of competent tradespeople have been building superior homes throughout the Bay of Plenty for over twenty years with a proud history of quality awards. The expertise and accountability we bring to your project as Licensed Building Practitioners sets us above many others as we don't contract out labour with scant supervision.

A selected designer and I work personally with you from appraising your site, through concept design, working drawings and construction to maintenance advice after completion on every build we undertake. 


Strong Focus on Quality and Unique Homes

Our focus remains on custom design and build, working with a variety of talented architectural designers to compliment your desired style and personality. Creating your dream home through an informed methodical process removes the stress from many decisions while being upfront with projected costs. 

Sections have become smaller through land availability and cost, often there is a desire for less capital committed to a home meaning it's more important to design specifically to your site, lifestyle and budget.

We bring proven methods and ideas to advise you on options for future proofing your new home, renovation or refurbishment.  


A Proven History

Being successfully in business since 1988 brings access to vast expertise through a strong local network from engineers and design consultants to soft furnishings and landscape construction. 

These established relationships with reputable local suppliers and sub trades ensures our reputation for quality and service remains and you get the best the industry has to offer. 

The service, value and advice of a smaller operation means communication is direct with the business owner. Overheads are minimized, there are no franchise fees or rebates collected.

At Stuart Wood home Builders we are interested in building for you not turnover for the profit margin, we have received and considered offers from national groups to join a franchise. We cannot compete with their marketing power, however apples for apples we can easily compete on price.

Please contact me via phone, email or visit our Award Winning "Thermalcrete" show home at 14 Bracken Mews, the Lakes, if you share our values we may be the right partner for your next project.
