Somerset Studio

New Accommodation

This new build was completed at the end of 2019. The project was a fantastic experience for us and we thoroughly enjoyed bringing it to life. This modern designed studio accommodation is built from concrete tilt slab panels that were craned into place. The floor to ceiling aluminium windows were then installed and create an amazing indoor space that encompasses a floating staircase and mezzanine floor. Behind the upstairs false wall is the beautifully functional  bathroom.

Waratah St

New Home

This traditional style home was completed in 2019. The two storey design features a tiled roof and brick cladding with stone features. Inside the spacious home the vaulted ceilings create a spectacular effect. The expansive aluminium joinery allows breath taking views to be seen throughout the living areas.

Plummers Rd

New Home

This amazing design was completed in 2018 and is a mix of different styles and textures designed to make the most of the land. The cladding is a combination of cedar and coloursteel. The north facing positioning of the main living areas allows the views and warmth to be easily captured. The indoor outdoor flow creates an entertainers dream.

Minden Rd

New Home

Set against a rural outlook this home was completed in 2017. The cladding consists of a combination of maintenance free Palliside weatherboards and blocks. The monopitch roof really set off the high walls and the open feeling of the home.

Whakamarama Rd


With this renovation completed in 2016 the home owners opted for a full re-clad and re-roof at the same time as changing the internal configuration. Gone are the block walls, weatherboards and tile roof. In their place the walls are clad in traditional board and batten and a new roof in corrugated iron.


Ross Rd

New Home

This home, built in 2007, has been constructed from Lawson Cyprus bevel back rough sawn weather boards. The timber construction lends itself to the rustic farmhouse design. The roof of corrugated iron completes the look of this rural 4 bedroom family home.

Our Testimonials

“Truan and Karla are exceptional people. I cannot, I simple cannot recommend them highly enough. We knew they were good, having worked with them on very small projects previously, and we had the very good sense to wait until they were able to take on our job, and I am so grateful that we did. Their honesty and integrity, and craftsmanship, and sense of fun, and love for what they do, were all things that we enjoyed immensely, and I genuinely miss having the red van around these days. We’re just going to have to find another project!!”

 Anne and Rick

“We were exceptionally fortunate to have T&K Services build our new home. Truans energy, enthusiasm and passion for his profession were the attributes that stood out for us when we first spoke to him. We found that approach to be absolutely genuine and authentic as we planned then progressed with the build.

We asked for a number of changes along the way. Rather than discourage us, Truan would do all he could to accommodate our requests especially when he believed it would enhance the finished product. He was an excellent communicator throughout the job, had great relationships with and respect from all of the subcontractors.

He has extremely high expectations around quality and he and his team seem to relish a challenge. They are very good problem solver’s and take immense pride in their work. They are perfectionists. For example we had so many comments about how straight the walls were from other tradespeople relying on a good job to enable them to carry out their part of the project.

Underlying all that, Truan has a great way of making an insurmountable problem seem possible with total openness and transparency (and a great sense of humour). He was always available to discuss even the most trivial matters. We felt very much included in all aspects of the build and there were no nasty surprises (apart from the ones we created ourselves).
Without exception we received high praise about T & K Services work from almost all of the trades that followed on with finishing touches.

Karla and Truan are a great team, helpful courteous and above all, patient. We highly recommend them to anybody seeking a quality build and a positive building experience.”

Graeme and Jennifer

“The process of building our home with T & K was made simple and more enjoyable  by the fact that Truan and Karla are passionate about working with their client and take time to build the client/builder relationship.  Both are approachable and communicative; any problems or glitches were always dealt with professionalism and solved with clever and honest solutions.   Their enthusiasm and dedication to the project was outstanding as is Truan’s attention to detail and craftsmanship.  The building site was always orderly and tidy and the builders and contractors  worked hard throughout and have much respect and enjoy working with Truan.  This was our first experience of building a home, T & K certainly made it a smooth and enjoyable experience, we love our home and feel that Truan and Karla contributed so much to our dream home.”

Mike and Nic

“T & K Services (Truan, Karla and the team) did an amazing job on our renovation. As with any renovation we had a few issues come up but Truan explained them all to us clearly and gave us options and his opinion on what he thought best. Communication was spot on and we felt that T & K Services are very trust worthy and would have no hesitation in recommending them. If you want a job done properly and by the book T & K Services are the guys to do that!”

Barry and Rachael O’Neill

“Truan and Karla were introduced to us by mutual friends and we have used their services in a number of projects over many years that have really helped to improve the functionality and maximise the space – and enjoyment – of our home and garden.

Truan is not only a master craftsman, he is a creative, practical, solutions focused builder whose company we enjoy and whose professional expertise we value. Truan and Karla make up a hardworking and complementary team where communication is always clear and timely, the work is carefully planned and executed and the results are better than we could ever have imagined.

Next time we’d like them to build our whole house!”
