  • Residential Builds

We believe that a home can be beautiful, functional, offer a sense of warmth and be responsive and complimentary to its environment/nature.

McCarthy Builders started from a curiosity in making things, experimenting with materials, and an appreciation for fine architecture.

The thought that a considerable amount of time is spent in our built environment has strengthened the desire to make this space special. We love working with people who know how to do this.

We believe that a home can be beautiful, functional, offer a sense of warmth and be responsive and complimentary to its environment/nature. We stand in good stead to support clients, architects and engineers to achieve this through our high level of craftsmanship and our extensive understanding of materials and project demands.

Based in Christchurch, McCarthy Builders are a Licensed Building Practitioner and are Registered Master Builders.

“It’s not actually about big budgets, brands and expensive materials, it’s about making every thing you make as well as it can be made. It’s about considering every item, stepping back and saying to yourself “is there a better way?”, and frequently that means simpler. Some of the highest Quality items I possess are relatively humble and utilitarian, but the maker has carefully considered their making, and built it with love. We actively encourage all our trades to remove the blinkers of standard construction methodology and propose custom solutions to specific problems. Quality to me is that visceral feeling created by a myriad of tiny well resolved details that combine to be significantly greater than the sum of their parts. It doesn’t shout from the rooftops but you can’t mistake its presence.”
