Frequently Asked Questions


Do I need building consent?

Our homes come with a code of compliance (building consent) for the building.  Depending on the size of the building, and whether it is connected to plumbing, you may need building consent to land the building on your site. We will help you to gather the necessary paperwork and our architect will organise this consent for you.

How long will the build take?

Your build will take 6 weeks to complete, depending on the size.

Do you have cabins available to view?

There are always new homes being built in our workshop that you are welcome to view.  Due to our quick build process the models and floorplans available to view change almost weekly.  Contact us to book an appointment.

How do the power, water and septic systems work?

Our buildings come ready to be connected to your onsite services. Your site work, including your plumbing, electrical and decking/landscaping will need to be completed by you. However, we have contacts around the country that may be able to help.

Where do you manufacture the cabins?

Our builds are completed in our purpose-built factory located in Ngāruawāhia, just outside of Hamilton. You are welcome to visit us by appointment—just use the contact page here to get in touch.

How are the cabins delivered on site?

Our buildings can be transported most places and are craned onto site.  Our specialist transport partners will complete a site visit to ensure delivery is possible, provide a more accurate cost, and to check whether any work is required to allow delivery (e.g. tree or fence removal).


Can I change the kitchen plan?

You can customise the layout using our recommended kitchen plans and personalise your new kitchen with colour options and fittings.

Can we make changes to the design?

Absolutely, just choose one of our models and we will work with you to design a layout to suit your lifestyle.

Are there any restrictions to the size of the build?

Yes, the longest we will build is 12 metres and the widest we build is 4.8 metres. We can create custom-build plans based on your needs, many of our customers have combined two or more units on-site to gain a larger footprint. Add a connecting deck or patio and enjoy the indoor-outdoor flow.

Check out our Facebook or Instagram pages for examples and inspiration.


Do you offer finance?

We can help arrange finance by putting you in contact with a lender that understands transportable homes, and that will consider your unique circumstances.

What are the payment terms?

A 10% deposit is required to commence the design and consent process and to schedule your build into our build calendar.

Progress payments throughout the construction process are required at key milestones as detailed in the contract. Our standard terms are:

  • 30% of the total contract price two weeks before your build starts
  • 30% of the total contract price once the roof is installed
  • 30% of the total contract price once your build is complete

Full payment is due before the building is removed from our site
