Welcome to 99 Hobson Street, Thorndon, Wellington,
New Zealand.

In late 2013 we purchased a vacant piece of ex-roading land in historic Thorndon, Wellington's oldest suburb.


We love the capital. We both grew up here, but our lives took us away. Now we've returned, and we have built a home in our favourite city.


It is a huge challenge to construct a new house. There are many decisions to be made, and you inevitably need to put your trust in others.


This website documents our journey, the choices we made, and the suppliers and products that have helped us to achieve our goal. We hope this site will help guide you in making your choices too.
