Fraemohs Tasman’s ‘Mackenzie Gable’ transportable show home is now for sale. See the TradeMe page for more information.
Launched in 2020, we had lots of fun designing our latest range of transportable homes for the New Zealand market. Loaded with neat features, we’ve worked hard to design a range of relocatable modular homes for people who appreciate good indoor-outdoor flow, comfort and energy efficiency. Ideal as a secondary dwelling for those looking to downsize, or looking to subdivide an existing property. Made from 100% sustainably grown New Zealand timber, and assembled right here in our Christchurch factory – living sustainably and affordably just got a whole lot easier.
July 2022: we are completing construction of a ‘Mackenzie Gable‘ transportable home at our head office in Christchurch. On completion, it will be available for sale. See the TradeMe page for more info. Wellington also are presently building a ‘Mackenzie Gable’ show home which will be opening in the third quarter of 2022.

Assembled using Fraemohs’ unique interlocking timber method, these relocatable homes offer all the benefits of a home from our Solid Timber range. So being naturally warm, dry and healthy is just the beginning. Our transportables are extremely low maintenance, earthquake proof and environmentally friendly.
And they’re affordable. Because they are built in our all weather factory, efficiencies are made in the construction process. The earthworks can be completed concurrently with the home’s construction, reducing the build time by several weeks. Travel to and from the building site by the builders is slashed – particularly beneficial for our rural clients or anyone wanting to build in an isolated area. And feel free to build anytime of the year, regardless of season because there’s seldom a weather related delay in the construction of transportable homes.
Even the banks see the cost benefits of living in a prebuilt relocatable home! Check out Westpac’s Prebuilt home loan option which recognises the reduced costs of building a modular home with low deposit loans.
