Corner of Bainfield and North Road,

We had had prior dealings with Shane on a previous job, and after our initial meeting to discuss our ideas and vision for our “dream home” we left feeling positive about the whole experience and the process that we were about to take on. Both Carl and Shane listened to our ideas, and instilled us with confidence.
Best experiences throughout would have to be designing our home with Shane who listened & made our ideas happen, valuable advice and great communication on progress, along with high quality, well known tradespeople used on our build.
We would not hesitate to recommend Jennian Homes Southland. You will achieve a high quality finish, deal with honest people who listen and communicate throughout the build.
We enjoyed the building process, mainly due to the fact that the Jennian team made it stress free and easy – nothing was a problem.
Glenn and Kerrie Morrison
The deciding factor for me in choosing Jennian Homes was that they were a local company and recommended by my bank manager, whom I have a lot of faith in. Jennian was very flexible in providing the home plan I wanted and within my available budget and section size. I immediately felt I could trust Jennian to deliver to my requirements.
I valued hugely the confidence I had in Jennian’s knowledge and expertise. The sales consultant was flexible and listened to what was important to me and was able to adjust plans/costs accordingly.
I appreciated the progress updates and notifications of what may be happening, along with the flexibility to change some aspects as the building progressed. Jennian were extremely responsive to putting things right.
My advice to others would be to sit back and let it happen. I felt it was an easy, stress-free build due to the expertise and experience of the Jennian team.
I would build again in a heartbeat with Jennian – The whole team is very personable, yet professional.
Love my home and enjoyed the process.
We chose to build with Jennian Homes Southland because Carl and Shane were really approachable, had good word of mouth and a master builder guarantee. Carl & Shane’s listened to what we wanted in a house and offered really sound advice to enhance what we wanted.
The best thing about our experience was the relationship we built with Shane and Carl. They were really easy to work with, really open and honest, and really valued that ultimately it was our home and had to suit our needs. They were really easy to communicate with. We LOVE our house.
The advice we would give other people looking at building with Jennian is that that is was a really positive, exciting experience. It had the potential to be stressful for us, and was most certainly stressful for Shane and Carl at times, but they managed that really well. I would tell people to go for it. We have no regrets at all.
Carl, Shane and the Jennian Team have a sound reputation and it’s important to know that, as a house is a major investment.
Thanks for such an awesome experience. We praise our house every day and comment on how much we love living there.

Jennian Homes were by far and away the best Franchise to deal with here in Queenstown. We found their turnaround of design edits quick and faultless whereas we found the others took several turnarounds before getting it right.
Price wise they were within our budget and we got what we exactly what we wanted unlike the other Companies who would either pull out what we wanted to reduce cost, or, try and encourage us to go with a spec home. With Jennian we got what we wanted, within our budget range and delivered on time.
We would not hesitate to recommend Jennian Homes to anyone building in Queenstown.
Thank you guys – job well done!
Victoria and Paul Ludemann
We choose to build with Jennian Homes Southland because they were recommended by a previous client who we know.
Carl & Shane’s feedback and communication throughout the process was good, and their building foreman Dallas was very good to deal with. Carl & Shane gave timely feedback on any questions / contractors etc.
We would be more than happy to recommend Jennian Homes to other prospective clients because they were a good team to deal with and had good workmanship.
Overall Laiyee and I are very pleased with the project.
Graham and Laiyee Denny
We have always liked Jennian Homes designs, and once we talked to Shane & Carl we were sold on their ideas and enthusiasm. They could offer exactly what we were after. The guys could offer lots of advice and reassurance. I have to admit I was reluctant to build at first because I have heard people’s horror stories, but Shane and Carl were fantastic to deal with. They had lots of ideas that they shared with us along the way and even the smallest change added character to our new home. The one piece of advice I’d give to people thinking about building is – Do it!!! Not once did we feel that we weren’t in the loop as to what was going on. The whole experience was exciting from start to finish.
Brent and Kara Crossan
We met Jennian at the 2013 home show, and really liked them from the start. They seemed like down to earth people that weren’t too pushy like some other building companies. Jennian regularly communicated with us and always let us know what was happening. Nothing was a problem. Taking heaps of care that the Jennian contractors and themselves got even the smallest detail exactly as we wanted. We loved the whole experience, from coming up with a house plan we wanted and Shane turning our ideas/sketches into plans. We visited the build most days and always found heaps of progress. Anyone thinking about building with Jennian should do it – they are awesome, everything will go smoothly, nothing will be a problem and you’ll find the build progress fun. They are very honest trustworthy people. Building with Jennian is easy and fun. They take care of as much or as little as you require making a stress free build.
Peter and Stacey Jefcoate
We really liked the design of the Jennian Southland Show Home, and this is what our new home was based from. Jennian Homes had great prompt service and everything was done the way we wanted it. They always kept us informed of what was happening and nothing was a problem, when Carl said a tradesman would be on site they did turn up. This was our third new home we have built, the last 2 being with local builders, but the Jennian Homes Package deal was the best way to go, as they did all the worrying not us.
John and Colleen Butler
We chose Jennian Homes to design and build our new home because we liked Carl & Shane, they seemed to understand what we wanted and they seemed genuine not like other sales people. They offered quality at an affordable price.
Jennian Homes service was outstanding throughout the whole process, and their builder Dallas was amazing. We enjoyed the entire design and build process with Jennian Homes and couldn’t believe when our house was finished one month earlier than expected.
We would recommend Jennian Homes Southland to anyone looking at building, as their quality and service was great. We love our home.
Blair and Melissa Vining
The Jennian Southland show home was one of our main reasons we chose to build with Jennian Homes. Our house was finished faster than expected and within budget. Carl and Shane offered helpful advice right from the first visit. One piece of advice is to make sure plans are what you want before building commences to avoid changes along the way. We would definitely recommend Jennian Southland to anyone looking at building.
Gavin and Yvonne Cox
We choose Jennian Homes Southland to build with because we had seen a home Jennian had built and a satisfied client had recommended the Jennian team. We also knew that Carl had a good reputation in Southland.
We would be happy to recommend Jennian to other prospective clients, as they make sure things are done properly – no half measures.
Neil and Jane Blackmore
We met and spoke to Jennian Homes at the Waimumu Field Days, and choose to build with them because we liked one of their house designs and price. Advice we would give to people looking at building is to be happy with the plan and the team building it. Carl and the team are a great company and supportive to what we were after in the house. Jennian Homes are a great team to build with and would happily recommend.
Nick and Bridget Crowe
Jennian Homes had a very good reputation of very high standard finishing work. As a tradesman myself, I am very fussy and wanted a completed project that I could not find faults. We recommend Jennian Homes to anyone as we cannot find a fault in any of their work from prebuilding stage through to completion.
Steven and Linda Winsloe
We spoke with some other people who had used Jennian and they recommended them.
We received excellent project management, and Jennian made sure the build progressed quickly and efficiently and to a high standard. Nothing was a problem, even though we sent many emails to adjust the plans and ask numerous questions.
We would definitely recommend using Jennian, they make the process very easy. We were also pleased we were able to develop our own house design and to use local builders, plumbers, painters etc. while using Jennian.

The Jennian team was so helpful from start to finish. It was great being able to choose products at their office, and they were always readily available to visit or on the telephone. The expertise Shane had at the design of the house to suit my needs and Carl who came up with inside and out ideas as well made the whole experience a wonderful one and not at all stressful. I really can’t say thank you enough.
Some of the best experiences I had during the build were visiting the site; in the afternoon in 2 hrs with my daughter and husband we said yes yes to products to go into the house, it was a lot of fun and exciting.
I would tell anyone that was thinking about building with Jennian Southland to go for it, Carl and Shane of Invercargill were just great. I wish them well in the future!!!!!!!
We chose Jennian Homes because we had worked with them previously on 3 other builds, so we trusted them to build our family home. Their Craftsmanship is second to none and they kept us well informed every step of the way.
Although Carl & Tracey are close friends, they were extremely professional when it came to the build, nothing was ever a problem or impossible. Jennian built us an amazing family home that will grow with us – in all stages of our family’s life.
Don’t look anywhere else – this team is a well-oiled machine, extremely professional and deliver what they say they are going to and their product is just amazing. Our expectations were well and truly exceeded with our family home, and we would have no problems recommending Jennian Homes to anyone considering building.
