‘People are paying for a quality product and so we go that extra step with everything we do. I love my job; I’m proud that I’m crafting something that stands the test of time and I’ll be able to show my kids. We’re not just building a house, we’re building a home.’ View more Craftsmanship videos

Eco-smart homes

Lockwood homes are built from radiata pine which is a sustainably sourced solid wood and is a natural, renewable, biodegradable product. Wood is the earth’s most renewable raw material so building with it is vital in the fight against climate change. The more solid wood we use, the more carbon that is stored. The more trees that are grown, the more oxygen is released into the atmosphere, and the better off our world will be. Lockwood homes are durable, strong, ventilated, warm and dry – so they create healthy living environments for you and your family, for good. Read more
