Live small and smart in a transportable home

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. 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.

View our range of transportable homes.

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 also extremely low maintenance, earthquake proof and environmentally friendly.

Did we mention the price? Because they are built in our all weather factory massive 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 a transportable home.

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.



Some of the homes include variations on the design. So if there’s something you want done a little differently, be sure to check the plan carefully because you might just find there’s a design variation which is right for you.

Traditional or contemporary. Whether it’s a sleek Scandinavian style log home you’re after, or something more traditional like a New Zealand farm style cottage. We are New Zealand’s original Scandinavian kitset home manufacturer with over 50 years of experience delivering warm and healthy homes.

Fraemohs quality, great price

Our timber homes are famous for being warm and healthy, and more recently for their exceptional performance in earthquakes. Imagine getting all the benefits of one of our Solid Timber homes, for the price of a transportable home. Experience an uncomplicated build which is fast and gives you peace of mind from knowing ahead of time what your final cost will be. And at the end of it, you’ll see why so many of our customers say that living in one of our Solid Timber homes ‘feels like being on holiday, everyday.’
