Home building is as much about understanding the landscape and the client as it is the plan and the materials. From our Canterbury office our company has built a large range of homes that are distinctive, stylish, durable and cost-effective.

Since 2004 we have carefully built, among other things, a reputation for constructing high quality houses.

An Artisan is someone who is highly skilled in a particular expertise, a hands-on craftsman – someone who is passionate about the quality results they produce. At Artisan Homes, our passion is building homes for people who appreciate the work that goes into what will, ultimately, be a home they love to live in.

Artisan Homes build all over the Canterbury Region in areas such as Rangiora, Kaiapoi, Amberley, Oxford, Darfiled, West Melton, Rolleston, Prebbleton, Lincoln, Halswell and of course Christchurch.

Working in small towns, we recognise the importance of community.

Since our beginning fifteen years ago we have carefully developed the business to grow and evolve without adversely affecting the quality of our work. All of our tradespeople are qualified and registered or licensed. While we don’t have the franchises of our larger competitors we do have their networks and buying power. Which means our clients receive the most cost-effective results possible.

There have been challenges along the way. Living in Christchurch since September 2010 has placed unique demands on the individuals and businesses of our city. We have adapted our work accordingly, supported our people and our community and have completed hundreds of EQC house assessment and repair projects along the way.



Rob Jones


Following in the footsteps of his father (who headed up a Canterbury-based civil construction company) Rob started out in the building industry when he was just sixteen.

"Dad was from the old school, when carpenters were considered craftsmen and required to possess a much wider range of skills: like cutting & pitching roofs on site and actually hanging doors."

Rob completed his apprenticeship with leading South Island commercial company Lunds before moving into a Project Management for a home building company in Canterbury.  Rob then brought his experience and passion to Artisan Homes in 2004 when the company was established building quality homes in Canterbury.
