Clients Testimonials (click text to go to testimonials)


“Friends, visitors and delivery drivers, without exception, simply say “Wow!””


“It’s been over two years since we moved into our dream home. Thanks to your efforts that dream lives on every day…”


“Mark Jerling and Chris Kingdon of Timeless Homes Ltd designed and built our Edwardian Style Villa…”


“Mark designed several Residential projects for us…”


The first and most important Point of Difference:

We design to your requirements, in your preferred style and for your lifestyle.


Have a look at the images examples to the right:

You will see two apparently completely different houses. But, first looks can be deceiving.

The two houses have nearly the same basic shape. The one owner picked uPVC windows and doors, the other aluminium doors and windows. The two homes are clad with different materials. The one has it’s floor elevated from the ground to have decks, the other is on a concrete slab low to the ground. The stylistic differences and different materials choices between the two, even though using nearly the same footprint has provided these two customers with two very different homes. One could, as easily, add large sliding doors and windows and mono-pitch roofs and change to a completely modern house style.

Free Building Permit Ready Plans: If you build with us, we will produce your Building Permit Ready Plans Free of Charge. You can choose to alter one of our standard plans, or we can design for you from scratch. Timeless Homes will provide you with a firm fixed price quote for this design work and will then use the design drawings to provide a free quote for your project. Should you accept our quote, and enter into a construction contract, then we will discount your project with the full cost of the Building Permit Ready Plans.

Free Quotes: We will provide a free quote, if you have your design work done with us. If you have your plans drawn elsewhere, we’re happy to quote for free as well, but there can be some consultant costs that may have to be met. A staff member will be happy to explain these requirements in more detail.

Fixed Fees: Many design firms charge per hour. Others charge a percentage based fee, based upon the value of the building work. We have a completely unique way of charging: We will provide you with a fixed fee quote once we’ve met with you and have been able to establish the scope of work required for your design project. This way you can be assured that there won’t be any ballooning hourly rates charges with every change to the drawings. Nor will the fees be adjusted every time you make a change which affects the cost of your project, thereby altering the percentage based fee. We keep it simple, with a fixed fee system, and will only charge you the fee pre-agreed at the start.

Testimonials: Why take our word for it?

Please read some of our Clients Testimonials, below, and you’ll see we simply offer the best Design and Building Experience.



Building your own home is both a rewarding and highly stressful experience - rolled into one. Mark Jerling designed and Chris Kingdon led the team that built our home and we are overwhelmingly pleased with the end result.


Customer focus was an important attribute for us when selecting our building company. Mark ensured that when issues arose, as inevitably they do on such a complex project, they were resolved quickly.


From a layout sketch given to Mark, we now have the home we envisaged; its finish and attention to detail are truly first class.


As we marvel at our views of the Tararuas, it is Mark we have to thank for his initial vision in terms of identifying and preparing the best possible building site on our land, in turn giving us the stunning aspect and panoramas we now enjoy. Friends, visitors and delivery drivers, without exception, simply say “Wow!” when they get to the top of the driveway.


It was important to us that our house was truly a home, and not simply bricks and mortar. We believe we have achieved that in spades through working in partnership with Mark and Chris and their team.


We would recommend them to anyone considering a project as daunting as building your own home. It has certainly not put us off doing it again.

To all at Timeless Homes


It’s been over two years since we moved into our dream home. Thanks to your efforts that dream lives on every day.


People say that house building is one of the most stressful things you can do. Given the copious amounts of money and emotion involved it certainly is but you made our house building journey as stress free as possible. Every step of the way we had complete confidence that things would come together in the end. And it has.


Our home has exceeded our expectations and winning the Master Builders Gold Award is a testament of your dedication to your clients and your craft. Our house is admired by friends, neighbours and strangers. We’re proud to be able to tell our story of working with you and never hesitate to recommend your work to others. The one thing in particular we tell other people is the meticulous attention you pay to detail. Whether it was door handles or roofing lines; ceiling coving or tile layouts you were there to offer suggestions. Without doubt Mark Jerling played the biggest role in getting things right but all your staff and contractors played their part to deliver exceptional solutions we could afford.


We hope that your work continues to thrive and excel under the new guise of Timeless Homes. Thank you for all that you did for us.

To Whom It May Concern


Mark Jerling and Chris Kingdon of Timeless Homes Ltd designed and built our Edwardian style villa in Karori in 2008-09.  We chose them because we were greatly impressed by the examples of their workmanship we had seen.


Right from the start I was impressed by Mark’s focus on giving the customer excellent service.  He was very willing to listen to our suggestions, our requests, and the whole variety of issues that arise in building a house. No detail was too small to be resolved.  The first plans reflected our wishes very closely, and Mark was very willing to make the changes that we suggested. Mark has an amazingly comprehensive knowledge of building and housing, and he can provide advice on almost any issue.  He is very attentive to the customer’s needs and will follow up to ensure quality service.


Chris Kingdon was the Project Manager and organised the building contractor, the sub-contractors, and the supply of materials.  Chris ensured that the high standards were met and that we were consulted at all appropriate stages.  Nothing was too much trouble to sort out and follow-up on.


All-in-all the relationship was excellent and completely hassle-free.

Mark and Chris recommended high quality products and these are wearing/working well.

We are still in touch, and there has been excellent follow-up on any small matters that need attention.


Yours sincerely


Andrew MacKenzie

Mark designed several Residential projects for us as Chandabry Developments. His designs are always innovative and right on the brief. He added a fresh perspective to our projects, and he listens before putting forward ideas.
