Versatile Cromwell is owned and operated by David and Marie Holden.
We have been Versatile franchisees since 2000 and we, along with our team, have an excellent understanding of our local market. We understand the extreme weather conditions that Central Otago can produce and how best to build your new garage, farm building, or home to cope with these conditions.
David, Marie and the sales team are very excited with the new range of Versatile homes – in fact we believe we have a home for everybody. Investing in the brand is something this team believe in and to prove this they have just opened their new show home, which features in the Lifestyle Range.
This is Versatile Cromwell’s sixth display home. With David’s knowledge of what home owners want in their home and Marie’s flair with decorating, they believe they can build you a home to be proud of. A home that’s functional, family friendly, low maintenance, and affordable. To help you through the build process, we offer Interior Design services to help with colour schemes and furniture choices. The Cromwell team have previously won awards through Master Builders and Versatile National awards, so rest assured you are in great hands!
We made the right choice
"Dear Dave, Marie, Ferg and Mark,
It is almost a year now since you completed the house for us.
Our intention was to run it as Air BnB accommodation and we got off to a great start during the Christmas/New Year period last year.
Like many people, we took a hit from the Covid period but have since bounced back and we had had many guests staying.
The feedback we are getting is consistently very positive, partly due to the internal and external finishing touches and to attention to detail for the guests.
But it is also obvious that people are impressed (as we are also) about the house design, layout and spaciousness. For the square metres, it feels like a much bigger house.
This reflects very well on Versatile, which we want you to know and it also confirms that we made the right choice with you as our builder."

Incredibly friendly, efficient and accommodating
"We have lived in our new Versatile home for six months now, and we are still savouring every detail of living in a new home, created for us. At the beginning of the process, we were rather clueless (never having built before), but Versatile were incredibly friendly, efficient, and accommodating to our specific situation. We didn't choose a set plan, but went with our own design to meet the features of our piece of land. Even after moving in, Versatile attended to final touch ups without prompting from us. Overall, we are very satisfied with the service we received from Versatile, and are really happy with the quality of our new house."
Carolyn and Werner
Our second Versatile home
"Thanks for all your help in the construction of our beautiful new home in Cromwell. We love living here and the house is everything we wanted and more. After we sold the last house you built for us and started looking for a new site, we also took the opportunity to see what other building companies in the area could offer. We soon decided to ask you to build our next home because we knew you would build a great quality product, we understood your working style and had already established complex trust in your level of workmanship. From the beginning of the design process (after looking at existing plans and how they would fit on our site) until when we decided to come up with our own plan, you and your team took on board all our suggestions and changes in the plan layout until we came up with the final design."

Your team made the journey fun and exciting
"Versatile Homes Cromwell played a major part in our decision to build our new home. After visiting the show home in Stowell Drive and meeting Heather, we were very impressed with the quality of workmanship, the design and the overall appearance and details of the show home."

We couldn't have asked for better service
"We can't speak highly enough about the staff at Versatile, about the timely completion of the job and the standard of the finished product. We have already spoken to numerous people about how good the Versatile team were - we've also had glowing comments from friends that have come around and inspected the garage. We live on a lifestyle block and have many friends from the surrounding area who take an interest in sheds and garages.
Our double garage with carports on either side was built to our requirements. We have found nothing of concern and have no suggestions re improvements that could have been made. We couldn't have asked for better service - management, the building staff and the contractors were all excellent."
Communication was very good
"Communication was very good and we were well informed of progress."
"Our experience with Versatile was stress-free! The Project Manager kept us in touch with what was happening and when it was going to happen and the schedule of work seemed to us to run right on time with each phase of the build. This was very reassuring for us. To get into our new home when Versatile said we would was a big plus for us."
