Gosh we’ve been slack to say the least on the social media game of late. 🤦‍♀️ Apologies ... Getting the girls back into school, after school activities and all their sports has definitely taken more of my time than I thought! Dabbling with the idea of going back teaching has also kept me busy ... but this was too good not to share... Our 2nd daughter is in year 2 this year and as part of their identity unit they were asked to draw their ‘Wharenui’ ... as you can see in the zoomed out picture most of the class drew their family inside their house .... our child ... well she designed a house 😂😂 Spot the builders child 😁 clearly she does all her colouring and art on the back of old plans 😆 Dad’s proud of you Laurie and thinks your ‘Wharenui’ is on point 💙                P.S I promise to share some updates on all of our actual projects soon!! 🏡                      #vdvbuilders #nobusinesslikefamilybusiness #teamvdv #builderschild #shedesignedthehouseforthefamily #drawingherwharenui #slowlygettingbackintoourliferoutineImage attachment

Always stoked to support our Hot Water Beach Lifeguards! If you’re lucky enough to visit our beaches, or even luckier and live here, you’ll know how important these people are and how much they do for us all! Keeping us all safe, and teaching the next generation of surf lifeguards what it’s all about! ❤️ we can’t wait to get back into it .... our girls are missing their surf Sundays for sure 🥺🥰 thank you guys for all you do to keep so many safe 💙⭐️ ...

My Insta has been playing games ..... this post was meant to upload on Friday ... turns out it had already clocked off for the long weekend!!! 🤦‍♀️ so here is my ‘meant to be Friday’ post! ⭐️ Finally got to do a real life site visit and catch up with some of our awesome team 💙 this beautiful Design Build home in Wharekaho is coming along swimmingly ... with windows and doors in, and cladding going up ... she’s ticking away nicely! Walking through this house its great to see the well designed layout - every area has been thoughtfully designed - even the mezzanine/attic above the garage is an awesome use of otherwise ‘wasted’ space! And those views .... 😍😍 #vdvbuilders #whitiangabuilders #wharekaho #whitianga #designbuildwaikato #contractors #nzbuilder #nzcertifiedbuilders #builtbylocallads #thevdvteam #anothergreatdesign #useofeveryspace #viewsfordays ...

Each time our guys send me pictures of this build I get excited to see it’s progress. 🤩With the girls on school holidays I haven’t ventured out to see it in person in a while - but these pictures have me hanging out for my next visit! 😊This build is coming along nicely and looking even more impressive at each stage! How beautiful are those windows .... the views 🌅 💁‍♀️ The scaffolding came down today .. and she’s a beauty! (Thanks Paul for the pictures - full time builder/ part time photographer 😆😉) Beautifully designed and thought out - the excitement is still there watching this one unfold 🤩 #vdvbuilders #vandevenbuilders #whitiangabuilders #whitianga #whenuakite #silverstream #peninsulascaffolding #nzwindows #nzbuilders #certifiedbuildersnz #builtbylocallads #viewsfordays #tairuahill #studio77design ...

The girly side of VdV builders 💕even manage to get some sneaky site visits in during the school holidays! We were stoked to see these profiles up ... this new build belongs to one of our own .... 💙@thesaltybartender and his gorgeous girlfriend are finally seeing the shape of their dream home 🏡 .... plus we happened to be there at the same time as ‘the digger guy’ ... I think Nudge might just have a little sidekick on his hands - our little Gracey was pretty chuffed with your new machine Nudge 🤩 looking forward to watching this build unfold #vdvbuilders #kuaotunu #whitiangabuilders #newbuild #nzcertifiedbuilders #builtbylocallads #schoolholidsysitevisits #wealmosthaveawalkerontheteam #kyleandnickys #buildingoneforourown #thediggerguy #kabota #builderswithdaughtersImage attachmentImage attachment

What a way to end the year for us! One of our wonderful clients - who happens to have her own massage business had me (Candice) over for a well needed massage - safe to say im in so much pain it’s just awesome! Healing hands by Erin Marshall is a must if you’re in Hahei! She is all set up in her home/air bnb built by the VdV team! It’s beautiful, a stones throw from the beach - and she is amazing! Every little niggle I have from lugging around our youngest daughter has been well rubbed down for 2020! What a way to end the year - I got to see inside one of our builds a year on, and got a massage 🤩🤩 not much more I could ask for! Here’s to 2021 🥂 #vdvbuilders #itsbeenabigyear #workrelatedtreats #inheaveninhahei #marshallhaven #healinghands #wehavethebestclients ... See MoreSee Less
