"The aim for modhouse was to bring a mid-sized open plan timber house to market that was high performing, environmentally sustainable and could be delivered at a reasonable price point."

- John McNamara, modhouse architect + founder

After 10 years of exploring and refining the modhouse design through sketches and model making, architect John McNamara formed modhouse as a company in 2017 and began to construct the first modhouse as a showhome in Hawkes Bay.

Our Partners


modhouse are strong advocates for offsite prefabrication which we believe is the way forward for the speedy delivery of housing in NZ. Engineered timber ticks all the boxes as it is grown in NZ sustainably, is a sustainable product, creates logs for jobs and achieves a simple and easy assembly to provide a solution for many structural requirements.
