Fraemohs Homes was founded in 1968 by Monni Fraemohs, who brought with him from Denmark a passion for solid timber home construction. Since then, we’ve built thousands of houses all across New Zealand and the world in the distinctive Fraemohs log home style.
When you think of Fraemohs you probably think of timber homes. What you may not know is that Fraemohs build two distinct types of homes, along with kitsets shipped around NZ and overseas.
Solid Timber Homes
Solid timber construction. The solid timber system uses interlocking timber boards that stack on top of one another to form the walls of your home. There is no separate framing, cladding, or lining in these homes. The walls are solid timber, and provide insulation and protection from the elements, as well as forming the exterior finish and the internal finish – all with a single material.
If you are looking for a new home that looks and feels different but will still be welcome in any subdivision, Fraemohs Timbermode homes are a great choice. Timbermode is our take on a conventionally timber framed home (what you see in 95% of residential construction).
For clients in Canterbury we can offer a full architectural design and build service, while clients elsewhere in New Zealand can choose from our architecturally-designed Timbermode kitsets and modify them if required.
Kitset or Full Built
From our base just north of Christchurch, Fraemohs Homes manufactures and supplies kitset homes to customers around New Zealand and overseas. For our clients in Canterbury, we offer the option of a complete build service where Fraemohs manages the entire building process.
“I heard about Fraemohs through colleagues of mine who’d said how easy the whole building process was with them. I really liked the Timbermode style homes and was able to choose the plan I preferred, then easily put my own touch on the design to make it my own. Having specialists on hand at Fraemohs to call on – like a colour consultant – made it really easy to get the exact look I was after. I didn’t have to go and find anyone like this myself which saved me a lot of time and hassle and made the process more cost effective too. There was never any stress, I just felt relaxed throughout the whole process, and now I’m moving in!”
“We lived in our Fraemohs for 5 years and would buy another in a heartbeat. The house was built 15 years before we moved into it in 2006, and we initially had some reservations because it had no garage. But the feeling we got when we went inside just changed everything – it felt like a home, and not just a house. Until you’ve actually spent time in a timber home like ours, it’s hard to understand that feeling. One of the most memorable things about our house was the temperature – it was so warm in the winter, but also so cool and fresh in the summer. At 120 square metres it was only a moderate sized house, but felt so much larger and spacious than it was on account of its design.”

“We didn’t know what we wanted to begin; we had a bare section but no idea of what to build. We decided on a Timbermode home from Fraemohs Homes which they customised for us to suit and we got exactly what we wanted.
As well as a great home we wanted the peace of mind that our building company would look after us without any of the horror stories you hear about some of the other building companies. Everyone from their Sales staff right through to the Project Manager and Builder were superb from start to finish.”
