A Little History…

Tasman Homes is a long standing construction company in the Nelson/Tasman region and was established in 1987. It has been meeting the building requirements of a wide range of clientele for the past 25 years. Tasman Homes have built a reputation for quality craftsmanship and service and now operate in the wider Nelson, Tasman and Marlborough regions.

We work closely with a number of architects and architectural designers and are approached by people with both established plans as well as those who prefer to start with a blank canvas.

New Buildings, Alterations and more

In the last 5 years we have branched out into major, and not so major alterations as many people in our region are happy with their beautiful spot, but wish to make changes to enhance their lifestyle. Be it a new kitchen, that extra room for visitors or some serious decking in order to enjoy those wonderful, long sunshine hours of our region!

Any de-construction or demolition requirements can also be managed by Tasman Homes as part of your project. In fact, Garry is well known for a ‘let’s think outside the box’ attitude. Last year we even organised the local fire department to ‘demolish’ an existing dwelling as a welcomed practise exercise, as the owners wished to build on the same site! Flexibility is definitely one of the main reasons many people choose to build with us.

What People Say


Ray and Sue Hill

Atahwai, Nelson

We can highly recommend Tasman Homes as our preferred builder. We found the company great to deal with, they were professional, honest and reliable.

The principal Garry Nott was fantastic to work with, he listened really well to what we wanted to achieve. His supervisor Pete was terrific, nothing was a problem, and the staff and subcontractors were excellent.

They offered very good value and produced a quality product. We would have no hesitation in recommending them or building with them in the future.

Neil and Liz Holmes

This is a note of recommendation regarding Tasman Homes who built a new home for us (our first build) which was completed in August 2008.

"We have found Garry Nott and his team to be reliable, hard working, professional, approachable, flexible and good-humoured. Garry had a reliable, friendly and good-humoured team around him and enjoyed an excellent rapport with the local sub-contractors who worked on the project.

We were very satisfied with the quality of work completed by Tasman Homes, their attention to detail, the finish achieved and the excellence of the follow-up to any matters that required attention.

As a result, we have continued to use Tasman Homes for a number of additional minor projects, and would be only too happy to employ them to build a house for us again in the future.”
