Phil Wolland of Wolcan Construction

At the beginning of 2012 we set out to plan and build a new home, after carrying out a considerable amount of research we selected Cavalier Homes Manawatu to construct the our new home for us.

We didn’t know much about Cavalier Homes as such, but knew of the actual builder Phil Wolland of Wolcan Construction, who has considerable experience in the building trade, his knowledge and willingness to listen to our ideas and then offer his opinion’s and advice was really great. Phil’s team of guys were always very friendly as well as equally helpful at all times when we visited the site.

The final result is great and we would recommend Cavalier Homes Manawatu to any prospective clients looking to build a new home.

We’re absolutely delighted with our new home

We’re absolutely delighted with our new home.  It is a beautiful house where we are proud to entertain and have family to stay.  The layout is practical and workable and exactly suited to our needs – it is spacious but also very easy to heat.

We’ve been very impressed with the workmanship and finishing.   All fittings are top-notch and Cavalier’s high standards mean that every detail has been addressed.

We highly recommend Phil’s friendly, helpful style.  He is supportive and considerate. Phil and his team take a huge amount of pride in their work.

Ged & Delwyn Shirley,

We have no reservation in recommending Phil and Wolcan Construction

When looking for a home in Palmerston North it was important for us to find a quality home that was designed for easy living. We looked at a range of new properties from other builders but came back to Wolcan Construction. The design, attention to detail and standard of workmanship is excellent.  Phil was extremely helpful throughout the process that made the purchase an easy decision. We have no reservation in recommending Phil and Wolcan Construction.
