Karen de Roo, is one half of the dynamic husband and wife duo looking after the Taupo region.  She specialises in project management and administration to ensure clients are always kept up to date with the progress of their new home builds.


We signed our contract with de Roo Construction in February 2020 – just prior to our first big Covid lockdown. Communication and progress on the site was outstanding in spite of a very difficult year. We are delighted with the finished home. This is the fifth house we have built, definitely the best overall building experience we have had – all the way from start to final payment, and the quality of our finished home.

We love the calm peaceful space of our new Lockwood Home built by Tim de Roo of “de Roo Construction”. Tim was a pleasure to work with, showing respect and integrity at all times. Both Tim and Karen were clear and concise in their communications with us and had a positive “can do” attitude. We had confidence in de Roo Construction during the building process and would happily recommend them to future clients.
