Due to popular demand and the incredible generosity of the homeowners, we are very happy to announce an additional Oamaru Tour the next day!

This year’s Christchurch tour won’t disappoint – featuring the best of the city’s clever new homes and post-earthquake rebuilds. A highlight will be Britten Stables, an ambitious and very beautiful renovation of a home that’s been part of a family’s lives for decades – it featured on Grand Designs NZ.
