The WoodHouse Difference
Our unique approach to helping you realize your dream begins with the simple principle of listening. Since 1979 we have been proud partners in almost 1,000 homes, which at one point, were just a dream. Collectively, our team has actively listened to thousands of ideas, thoughts and inspirations, which have lead to homes that truly are as unique as their owner. Through the years of experience of our team and constant desire to lead our industry in all facets of our business, this is what defines ‘The Woodhouse Difference’. Being good, just isn’t good enough.
Many will say our difference is in our industry-leading 3D modelling technology, which will create beautiful renderings and unique point-of-view fly-through models of your future home or the fact that we support our clients with the industry’s only transferable lifetime warranty. One could even say our ability to produce precision crafted timbers from a variety of species of wood sets Woodhouse apart from other timber frame manufacturers.
We believe that all of the above is true, but what really makes a Woodhouse home special, is the people who turn dreams into dream homes.
