Sam and Harriet Cane get ready to turn the key on their dream home

Building for the first time is one of life’s great journeys…just ask Sam Cane and Harriet Allen.

Urban Homes, proud sponsors of Bay of Plenty Rugby, have teamed up with the rugby legend and his fiancé to build their dream home.

Join Sam and Harriet in this five-part video series as they work through the build. Gain key insights into the construction process and find out how they’ve prepared to turn the key on their new property with Urban Homes by their side.

STAGE 4: The Build

Sam and Harriet’s home is well and truly taking shape. As the excitement builds, they’re making the final changes to the layout, increasing their time onsite and visualising the finished masterpiece.

STAGE 3: Frames Up

“It’s been a really cool process so far… when the frames are up you get a really clear idea of room size and what’s going to go where.” Join Sam as he reflects on the construction process so far, opens up about the milestones he and Harriet have faced, and the relationships they’re forming with the foundations of their dream home.

STAGE 2: Choosing Colours

Decision making is an important element in building a home. Sam and Harriet were able to sit down with the Urban Homes team, to discuss their options before site works began. Hear how they went planning their interior and exterior colours and finishings – from roof and wall claddings right through to the benchtop!

STAGE 1: The Journey Begins

Sam and Harriet take a walk through Urban Homes’ show homes to discover the styles and features they would like crafted into their very own house and land package.
