We understand and acknowledge that getting on the property ladder might be challenging. We designed our ‘First Step by Bainbridge’ Series especially for clients that are starting out, starting again or investing.

Some of our most popular and functional house design plans have been created with first-time buyers in mind. They offer a more economical solution to get onto the property ladder.

Building a quality home does not have to cost the world. Our First Step homes are economical homes built at an affordable price without compromising quality and safety.

Bainbridge homes and the team have been building beautiful homes in Christchurch and the Canterbury region for almost 50 years. We use our extensive years of experience in the industry to save you money where we can. With a basis on good design and construction that goes above and beyond the foundation laid in the building code, a Bainbridge first step home will be warm, dry and sustainable for years to come.
