Established April 2020 by Michael Mohr

Born in Cologne, Germany, resident of Wanaka since 2007.

After a career in Hospitality, successfully managing restaurant kitchens as Head Chef, I had decided that a change in work environment and industry would be a good change. As I'd always loved the process of crafting something with my own hands, I took up an apprenticeship as Carpenter with Pearce Builders Ltd of Wanaka, Otago. I fiinished my apprenticeship and kept working for Pearce Builders for a while. I then worked for a few other builders, (Owens Building, Bailey Builders, EasyBuild Otago), also already during my apprenticeship (Breen for example) and ultimately decided that fully working for my own clients would be the most fulfilling thing to do. 

I strive to employ all I've learned from my previous professional life, from hospitality management to  building and carpentry, and to bring the best possible service to my clients.

Where our name comes from: HausBau literally means "House Build" and basically is a play on the "Bauhaus" style of  Architecture originating in Germany in the 1920s.  

True to the german origins we bring precision and efficiency to all our projects.
