What clients say

"Being a first home buyer we wanted to build a home that built right the first time. We were inundated by plenty of info on the internet and information sessions on various topics related to first home, build and various horror stories. During this process we stumbled across Marvel homes… They were patient enough to listen to and answer all our queries and they would back this up by encouraging us to verify those answers from other sources ourselves.

Marvel Homes were flexible and worked in collaboration with us to build our new home. We found the passive house build process informative, assuring and flexible enough to get our ideas into the house building process. Thank you, Marvel Homes, we loved having you as our builder. Highly recommend!”
