Building Your Own Kitset Home NZ

One of the key messages that comes across when you talk to homeowners with a Fraemohs kitset home is how easy they found the whole building process. Right from the start, Fraemohs Homes makes things as hassle-free as possible by handling all of the relevant documentation to submit to local Councils to obtain a building consent.

Clients are often pleasantly surprised that Fraemohs Homes is willing and able to significantly customise its designs to suit the individual needs of home-builders. This is not normally possible with conventional kitset homes.

Another great thing about Fraemohs kitset homes is that they can be built on piles and their strength and flexibility makes them exceptionally strong in earthquakes. As well as being warm and durable, Fraemohs kitset homes are made from New Zealand timber so are an environmentally-friendly choice.

No matter how remote your location in New Zealand, if a truck can get there, you can have a Fraemohs kitset house delivered to your building site. We have even delivered some of our kitset homes by helicopter! For this reason, Fraemohs kitset homes are proving very popular with clients in hard to reach places such as Milford Sound, not to mention all sorts of remote locations in the North Island. Being outside of New Zealand is no barrier either since Fraemohs has also arranged transport of homes to a number of clients in the Pacific Islands.


Kitset home. Fraemohs Homes are New Zealand's leading supplier of timber kitset homes.


Once you have your kitset home on site, you can choose to either build it yourself or employ a local builder to do the job for you. Don’t know a builder? No problem – we have built up a formidable network of quality builders throughout New Zealand over our 48-year history, so we can refer you to a builder we know and trust to build our home to the highest standards.

Because Fraemohs kitsets are so quick and easy to build, clients can be in their new home sooner, saving money on temporary accommodation. Interior finishing is also stress-free as the warm timber interior eliminates the need for a bevy of gib-stoppers and painters, resulting in further time and cost savings both in the short-term, and the long-term.

If you know someone who has built or owned a Fraemohs Home, chat to them about their experience. Also, watch this space for a new instructional video from Fraemohs coming soon which will show the building process step by step…
