The New Vocabulary of Architectural Prefab Homes NZ

Sometimes a new idea needs a little time to establish itself in the vocabulary of the general public, particularly if it is a vast improvement on a previous idea. Such is the case with a architectural prefab homes. Everybody knows what prefab means: it tells you it was made somewhere and taken in multiple parts to the site it is to call home.

Prefab houses have been around a long time, but the way we at Ecopod Concepts build them takes them to a whole new level. Ours are made mainly from timber and all the fittings and services are installed by professionals from the appropriate trade. In other words, our prebuilt homes in NZ are quality. They are substantial, properly built and something our customers are proud to call home.

People search for modular homes NZ and eco modular homes NZ. They look for prefab homes NZ. But they’re all looking for versions of the same thing.

Eco? Short for ecological, as everyone knows. And our transportable homes are not just mainly made of wood, but for every unit we build, we plant 10 native trees in a regenerating forest in the Auckland area.

Modular? Module is another word for unit or component. It suggests something self-contained, and that’s exactly what our modular home units represent. Modules are individual pieces that can be put together with others to form a bigger whole.

Prebuilt = Prefabricated. This is not rocket science; it’s just terminology, but it’s the terminology of an important trend in modern accommodation. We take pride in our architectural prefab homes. Ah, there’s another word: Architectural. That crops up here because it indicates the thought, care and expertise that goes into our designs.

Why Premade Homes are the New Custom Solution

Buildings that were made in advance used to be considered convenient but of lesser quality. Not anymore. The way we build our modular houses is a lesson in sustainability, environmentally friendly thinking, and ecological soundness.

A premade home is what you need, with all the quality of materials and craft, plus an inspired eye for design with our craftsmanship. Our premade homes are adaptable both to your ideas and to planning regulations, so you can get what you want and need without sacrificing key elements.

Constructed to the strictest standards, our modular houses owe everything to smart modern thinking and innovation. When you need something relatively small but perfectly formed to complete the picture, bring us your ideas, and let’s turn them into reality. Well built, superbly finished, properly insulated and absolutely suitable for purpose, custom-built has always been a classy option and this is the new generation of ecological homes in New Zealand.

How do Modular Homes add to Conventional Buildings?

Let’s say you’ve got a house that you like, in an area you’re happy in, but it’s looking a bit short of space now, because something has arisen that requires another room or three. We have solutions in the form of 30 different floor plans ranging from a single 12 sq. m. portable cabin to a 100 sq. m. three-bedroom home. So, you can add a granny wing to bring an older family member back into the fold or give children and grandchildren a helping hand in these difficult times. Maybe it’s something you need for yourself: extra space to work on a business you’ve started that is growing. Professional accommodation, comfortable and well-equipped. To be taken seriously you can’t be doing this in the garden shed or on the dining room table.

Dealing with the cost of a Modular Home in NZ

Real estate costs money, and why should you wait if you want to buy a prefab home now? That’s why we have partnered with some finance professionals who specialise in this type of building. They know us, understand the concept – and they think it’s a great idea. So, you won’t have to spend half an hour with the bank manager, explaining the whole concept before you get the possibility of a yes or a no.

An architectural prefab home in NZ is very much the way of the future for many people and once you’ve looked at the details and the options, we’re sure you will want to be part of this important revolution in additional housing. Read Less

    MATT, HANNAH & MIA (COROMANDEL)

    We did a lot of research on transportable baches and couldn't beat Eco Pods for style, craftsmanship and price. We worked with Steve and co to shape a pod that was perfect for our section! It was great to sit down with the team and plan everything from the layout, aluminium joinery, to little things like the location of power points and kitchen shelving. Our L pod was delivered just in time for a big family Christmas at the beach and now we're super keen to get the second pod underway! 

    JOHN, SENIOR ENGINEER, CHESTER

    It has been a pleasure dealing with Steve and the Ecopod's crew over the past months and if I hear of other projects I will point them in your direction Senior Engineer responsible for Kumeu Arts Center Development
