4by2 Builders is owned and operated by James O'Connor.  I am a fully qualified, LBP builder with years of experience in the building industry and in landscaping services.


Selecting the right builder is important – not just so you aren't surprised by the cost at the end of the job, but also because you need to know that the job will get done on time and will last.

"We were thrilled with the work James did in our garden – he was prompt with returning calls and turning up for work, listened to our far flung ideas and come up with a workable solution, and has done a beautiful job of the joinery in our raised garden beds. 
Thank you!"


Rebecca & Steve, Upper Hutt

"I can't recommend James enough. Having a builder that you can trust across a whole range of aspects is priceless. Coming from the UK you always new someone who could do a bit of work for you as a 'homer' which was always a better option due to all the horror stories you would hear from people who hired a builder that they didn’t know. It can be quite nerve racking hiring someome for the first time. With James, from the beginning, I have never been disappointed. From the design to the finishing touches James's attention to detail has been impeccable. The research that is put in to every job (from ensuring he has a absolute understanding of what the client wants to sourcing the best for materials and knowing the most up to date regulations)
