At G.J. Gardner Homes, all of our franchises operate within the requirements of Licensed Building Practitioners


G.J. Gardner Homes has been operating in the Rotorua and South Waikato area since 1999 and is independently owned and operated by Lawrence and Carla Lee of Carlaw Homes Ltd.

Having been a part of the GJ’s family for over eight years Carla and Lawrence are excited to continue the legacy of GJ’s building great family homes in Rotorua. Both Lawrence and Carla are proud to continue providing quality and affordable homes to the community. Being lovers of the outdoors the two are always excited to immerse themselves in all that Rotorua has to offer with their gorgeous dogs in tow.

“We’re here to make our client’s experience as enjoyable as possible. Our goal is to create warm, safe and healthy homes, that we can confidently say we’d be happy to live in” - Carla

Lawrence was the first to join the GJ’s family, having spent over eight years as part of the Hamilton team he is passionate about designing great homes for clients. With a passion for photography his attention to detail and eye for design is what inspired him to join the construction industry.

Carla followed suit and joined the team a few years ago, after being part of the GJ’s family through attending many handovers and site visits with Lawrence. With a background in hospitality Carla prides herself on providing clients with care and attention, ensuring each home ticks off the most important items on their wish list.

Having built their own home with GJ’s, Carla and Lawrence have first hand experience, which gives them a great understanding to guide you through the journey of creating your own home with the same care and confidence they expected themselves.

“We take huge pride in what we do and are passionate about building homes that meet the unique needs of each client” – Lawrence

Working together with you, the GJ team can design and build a home that suits you, your lifestyle and your needs. The team have a wealth of local building knowledge and experience as well as the ability to draw on many different resources from throughout the GJ franchise family.

Lynmore, Pukehangi, Ngongotaha, Kaharoa, Putaruru, Tokoroa Tirau and Manawahe are just some of the areas they build in around the Rotorua and South Waikato Districts.
