If you’re looking for an amazing builder then I would absolutely recommend Kerryn Stewart. We have just completed major renovations at our home which took five months and entailed adding a new room, moving the kitchen, building a new entrance, as well as a major rebuild of the remainder of downstairs. Kerryn’s workmanship is impeccable. He is both professional and practical, as well as being a nice guy. We completely trusted him with our home and the results are even better than we imagined. No job is too big or small. I cannot speak highly enough of him – he gives builders a good name! I would be more than happy to provide a reference if you’re looking to get work done.
Nicola Haslam, Woodland Road, Johnsonville
Kerryn just completed two bathroom renovations on our 125-year-old villa. His workmanship is of an exceptional standard, and his finishing is beautiful. Kerryn approaches everything with real positivity and nothing is ever a problem, whether it’s working alongside other tradies in a tiny ensuite or making sense of the ‘design’ ideas I came up with. Kerryn works quickly, charges fairly, is honest and easy to get along with and does fantastic work. I can’t recommend him highly enough.

Recently we engaged Kerryn Stewart to build a large deck over a sloping part of our property. He did the groundwork and excavation, and was open throughout the entire exercise to any changes to our initial design. He not only made helpful suggestions but assisted in ensuring we got the best result in the most economical way. The result is a beautifully constructed deck which has increased our outdoor living, and has been greatly admired by our friends. Kerryn is a perfectionist and ensured that we ended up with the finest product possible.
We are about to undergo house renovations and have engaged Kerryn to do the work.

Janice and I would also like to thank you for coming to our rescue in regard to all the work you have done. You surpassed our expectations in regard to the quality of work, your friendly co-operation and the care and attention you gave to everything you did. We could not have asked for more..
George & Janice Albrecht – Newtown
For top quality work, Kerryn Stewart can’t be bettered. Client satisfaction is his central principle. And his charges are fair. Honest, reliable and trustworthy, Kerryn works to schedule. He is a great communicator and always keeps his client in the loop. I have confidently recommended him to my family and friends.

In November 2018, I met with Kerryn as our monolithic plaster cladded home required a full exterior cladding replacement. Kerryn was the only builder to respond to my enquiries after making contact with many building companies in the Wellington area. Kerryn assessed, quoted and accepted the job and began work on October 2019. The re-clad was a major task which included removing the plaster cladding, windows, rotten framing timber and then replacement of much of the old framing timber, windows and re-cladding with new linea weatherboard. Kerryn also coordinated sub-contractor work involving electricians, painters, scaffolders, plasterers and plumbers. At certain stages of the re-clad, Kerryn also had to liaise with architects, engineers and council inspectors. My wife and I were kept well informed of the building progress via phone calls, emails and site visits with Kerryn. We were consulted on all aspects of the re-clad and given recommendations that would make our house weather tight as well as design improvements. In December 2019 Kerryn and his team completed our large and highly complex project on time and to a very high and professional standard and coming in under budget as well as passing all of the rigorous and stringent council building inspections. I would highly recommend Kerryn Stewart and his team to anyone who requires all types of building work. I am happy to be contacted for any reference enquiry.
Randall Ratana – Khandallah
Kerryn has done several jobs around our 1950s weatherboard home including deck replacement; room renovation; and balustrade/gate installation. He has always provided excellent ideas for renovations, works quickly, and is extremely efficient; a hard-working and reliable builder.
James Lunny – Tawa
We contracted Kerryn to build us a large extension and deck, and to remodel part of our interior. From beginning to end, Kerryn was a consummate professional. He provided trustworthy advice throughout the build. His communication was great and he was excellent at organising the subcontractors too. Kerryn came in on time and on budget, with the work completed to a very high standard. We couldn’t recommend him highly enough – we’ve definitely found our ‘go to’ builder!
Kerryn did a top job on rebuilding our 1970s house. He was fantastic to get along with, is very knowledgeable and communicates well. He (and his helper) replaced ten door/window units, mostly on scaffold, and repaired and rebuilt many rotten places in our house – including all the top corners and recladding one entire wall! Very professional workmanship, and he was a pleasure to have around. His charges were very reasonable, and much lower than comparable quotes from other building contractors, without compromising the quality of the work. We are very happy to highly recommend him, and invite you come and inspect his workmanship firsthand at our house in Tawa (message me!).
Craig Utting – Tawa
Kerryn is extremely reliable, approachable. Very pleasant to have working around. Happy nature. Goes out of his way to help. Very efficient and has good ideas. Uses initiative and identifies opportunities for building action. Highly recommended. Nice to support local builder.
Helen and Peter Butcher – Tawa
Kerryn totally transformed my kitchen from a frumpy unusable space into a beautiful galley kitchen and repurposed laundry area. He worked so well with us, listening to what I wanted and coming up with great solutions. Best of all he had great plumbers and electricians all lined up so it was done quickly and with no fuss. He is possibly the hardest working person I have ever had do work for me and very quickly transformed the space. To top it off he is a great guy. I would have no hesitation getting him back to do my next reno and would highly recommend him to anybody. Thanks Kerryn! Love my new space!
Toni Swatridge – Ngaio
Kerryn undertook a large renovation for us in 2018 – an extension, new kitchen, new bathrooms, new flooring, new stairs and partial reclad, new everything – including the kitchen sink – all through a tough winter in an old house with lots of surprises. Kerryn did a fabulous job, he looked after the house and the finished job is gorgeous. We appreciated his craftsmanship and professional approach.
Rachel Winter – Khandallah
I have been very happy with the results of Kerryn’s work and would highly recommend him. He tries to minimise what he has to replace to keep cost down. He is very careful not to damage adjacent areas too. His recommendations are common sense and he did not try to take advantage of my building/construction ignorance.
Tito Tiongson – Tawa
We’re really pleased with the extension that Kerryn added to our 1950s house. The workmanship is excellent throughout; one example, is he matched the new weatherboards perfectly with the old. From the time we first approached him for a quote, we found Kerryn was really organised, reliable and had good communication. He was responsive to questions and also proactively offered his helpful ideas. We would definitely recommend Kerryn and his team to others.
Mike and Geraldine, Anthony Street, Tawa
Kerryn recently fitted some reclaimed vintage doors for us. He created a beautiful, floor to ceiling, installation – with glazed sidelights and windows above. Kerryn’s workmanship is impeccable. The doors have become a real talking point and have added real value to the house. Kerryn works quickly and is a pleasure to have in the house. I would recommend Kerryn to anyone wanting quality work done at a competitive price.
