Fraemohs Original Timber Homes are not only ideally suited to New Zealand conditions, but they also perform well in a variety of other settings.
During the 48 years that we have been making solid timber kit houses we have exported them to many Pacific Islands, including Fiji, Samoa and Niue.
A great choice for guest accommodation
The award-winning Taveuni Island Resort and Spa in Fiji has found that Fraemohs solid timber kitsets make ideal luxury bures. The solid timber bures are very practical because they are easy to construct and the solid timber walls are very strong, which is an important consideration in a region that can experience tropical cyclones.
The Scenic Matavai Resort on Niue’s south-western coast has also made use of Fraemohs solid timber kitsets for guest accommodation.
Our Fraemohs kit houses are equally at home in colder, alpine settings, which is why they were also chosen as part of the village for the 1998 Winter Olympics in Nagano, Japan.
Ideal for remote locations
Fraemohs kitsets are very simple for anyone with some basic building skills to construct. With no need for specialist plaster board fixers and stoppers the build process is much faster. The walls are put together without any nails so where there is uncertain power supply this is a great advantage. This makes Fraemohs kitsets an ideal solution to building in remote locations.
Distance is no object and we have previously sent kitsets to a range of difficult-to-reach destinations including the Chatham Islands, Falkland Islands and Lord Howe Island, which is situated off the coast of New South Wales.
