About Us

After many years travel and life overseas, we returned to New Zealand and bought 17 acres at Huia on the West Coast of Auckland in 2003. It was the Dream and the land we named ‘Tehuia’, the old native Maori name for the area. This land proved inspirational and our quest to live an organic and sustainable lifestyle began in earnest.

Though not architects but with good professional help we designed and handcrafted the original Tehuia Twin Peaks and founded Tehuia Log Homes Ltd. Carefully and slowly we discovered the people with the passion and skills we needed. Very special people, willing to help us learn what we needed to learn, to fulfill a growing demand for our simple style of eco sustainable log frame architecture.

If you have a similar dream – then join us on these pages and you may find the answer to your quest. That answer may be one of our Te Huia designs, it may be an idea, or it may be pure inspiration.
