McBrimar Homes was founded in Oamaru by local father and son Brian and Mike Lowe. Searching for a new home in 2014, Mike came across a plot of untouched, subdividable land. Knowing of the area’s need for new, warm, comfortable houses, McBrimar Homes was born.
Initially founded as a father-son business, the McBrimar team rapidly grew as demand for our builds increased. Now headed by Mike — following Brian’s well-deserved retirement in 2021 — McBrimar builds an average of 30 homes per year. And that number’s on the rise.
As a registered Master Builder, we uphold the highest craft standards and have earned a reputation for producing quality homes on time and budget. We value our client relationships so ensure we’re alongside you every step of the way, from initial concept plans to move-in day.
Like your classic Southerners, we get the job done in an honest, hardworking fashion. We don’t cut corners, we only work with the best, and we’ll always tell it like it is. That’s why we provide a fixed-price contract right from the word go.
