Clearwater Boat House

WHEN ONE COUPLE’S Southshore home was condemned following the quakes, they sought solid ground to the north of the city and prepared to embark on a new chapter.

Offering them a similar outdoor lifestyle and connection with nature to the one they’d grown accustomed to by the beach, the site in Clearwater also came with magnificent vistas. With the Port Hills to the south and emerald expanses of Clearwater’s putting green across the lake to the north, the pair had found their perfect patch.

Their brief was simple: a bright, sunny family home, designed in sympathy with the surrounding ‘boathouse-style’ dwellings, that embraced the natural environment and promoted effortless entertaining indoors and out, year round.

During the tender process, the couple say they had a good feeling about Mark and Ali Metzger from the get-go. And, with total confidence in their abilities to deliver the ‘unparalleled finish’ they sought, the pair secured MBL as the main contractor. Taking the reins once construction began, the team at MBL project managed the entire build. Transparent and regular communication was achieved through weekly progress updates with the clients that often included suggestions for improvements throughout.

Communication, Mark says, is the vital ingredient that shapes the success of any building project. And, in order to remain on schedule
and within budget, Mark played the pivotal role, liaising between the clients, his building team and subcontractors at every step. Through their dedication and meticulous attention to the finer details, the homeowners say the building team showed ‘enormous pride’ in their
work. Their friendly approach and industrious work ethic made for a pleasant and engaging experience with rewarding results.
