Our Story

A Family Legacy

Graeme and Anne Sanders began Today Homes 35 years ago in the conservatory of their home, starting with a simple ad in the local newspaper. Through hard work and dedication, they managed to create a home building company the Canterbury community could trust.

The three sons Simon, Mike and Jon have now taken over the helm and continue their parents’ legacy, building quality affordable homes in Canterbury. Being qualified builders, they know what it takes on-site to achieve the expected high standard. Graeme and Anne are still in the background, but are enjoying the semi-retired life watching their sons and company thrive.

Today Homes is commonly known in the construction industry as the most organised and efficient builder, with systems and procedures in place that ensure every home is built to a high quality and delivered on time. We offer comprehensive guarantees over our workmanship and because we’ve been in the business of building new homes in greater Canterbury area for so many years having built over 2,500, our customers and trade know they can trust us.

Because we manage our business prudently, we have been able to ride out the ups and downs of the housing market and continue to deliver a high-quality product for our clients. We are proud to be a locally owned and operated company and it is important to us that, like our business, our homes stand the test of time.

Whether you’re looking to build your first home, an architecturally designed showpiece or a family dwelling, our knowledgeable team will guide you through the process, so you achieve the home that you want. We can advise you right from the beginning of your project, including helping you to identify suitable land to build on and assisting you to secure finance and insurance.
