Back to Nature Carpentry

Master craftsmen dedicated to sustainable carpentry

We are a family-run company based in Raglan, New Zealand with the mission of pushing the New Zealand frontier of environmentally sustainable and high-quality residential construction practices in an affordable way.

We aim to reflect our love for New Zealand’s nature through the way we build and live in our homes.

We’re Eco-Friendly…

  • Our timber is sourced from sustainably grown plantations
  • We always opt for eco-friendly materials
  • We up-cycle materials, incorporating them into our unique projects
  • Through precise and efficient calculations, we minimise off-cuts – any leftover waste is recycled/disposed of responsibly
  • We trade with companies with sustainable practices and low carbon footprints
  • We donate a portion of proceeds from each project to the Plant for The Planet foundation
  • Our Eco Homes are designed and built using passive home technology. Making them highly efficient to heat
  • We aim to upgrade our work vehicles to be fully electric vehicles by 2023

"I learned very quickly to trust in Dylan's skills. He has an eye for detail and is very much a perfectionist. You could not ask for more. He and his team were very tidy and cleaned up the worksite at the end of each day."
Katie Ann
"We have a busy household with 3 kids and 2 dogs, and we have always felt comfortable with Dylan in and around our home. He has worked with me to create and design within the restrictions of our property and is always open to ideas and making things a little different."
Jenna Callinan
"Dylan is a very professional and precise builder. His work was top-notch, will use and completely recommend."
