Sam and Harriet’s
build journey

Rugby legend Sam Cane and wife Harriet recently built their dream home, and we were thrilled when they chose Urban Homes to take them through that journey.

We absolutely loved working with Sam and Harriet to help them design and build their very own masterpiece on the outskirts of Hamilton. We approach every new build as a partnership, taking the time to listen to ideas, and find ways to make each home special. Sam and Harriet made sure they loved everything they chose – making their home theirs for years to come.

“Friends and family have asked, would you build with Urban again and, the answer is definitely yes! Absolutely! The process has been amazing. We got the home we wanted – and more!”

– Sam Cane
The Journey Begins

Rugby legend Sam Cane and wife Harriet kick off the building process by visiting their beautiful section. It’s an exciting time, and we’re thrilled to be on the journey with them! Hear why they’ve chosen to work with Urban Homes, proud sponsors of Bay of Plenty Rugby.

Choosing Colours

It’s time to plan how the finished home will look! This is always an exciting part of the journey.

Hear how Sam and Harriet went planning their interior and exterior colours and finishings – from roof and wall claddings right through to the benchtop!

Frames Up

We’re back on site with Sam and Harriet as their house starts to take shape.

“You get a clear idea of the room size, what will go where, and your imagination starts going!” – Sam Cane.

The Build

We’re in the final stages of the build, making sure all the details are bang on.

In this video we take a look though Sam and Harriet’s build with most of the roof on, and exterior features coming to life.

The Finale

“It’s been a busy time, but it is really nice to be settled into our new home.” – Sam Cane

Sam & Harriet’s new home is complete! Join them as they reflect on the journey.

“Every time we come out to the site to catch up with the guys from Urban, we always leave feeling reassured we’ve made the right decision that the house is in very good hands. There’s a good level of trust.”
