How we work
Its as easy as this
Let’s get your specifications right
Let’s sit down and go through what you want in your new home so we can write it up in a clear proposal including floor coverings, fittings and colours.
Sign off on the proposal
Once you’re happy with our proposal, it’s time to accept the quote, sign the building contract and pay the deposit. Anything else added after the contract has been signed is added as a variation that is also signed. Life is pretty unpredictable so if there is anything else we need to add, we can by agreement.
Let us prepare the plans
You’ve chosen everything that will go into your home. Now, it’s up to us to get the rest of the construction plans and specifications ready for Council to accept the building consent and for the Able Spaces team to start building your new home.
Kick back, relax, we’ve got your project covered
Everything is in place for you to kick back and relax while Able Spaces gets cracking on your new home. We’ll keep you informed throughout your build with photos and progress updates.
Let us project manage your site works
If your site is within the Greater Wellington Region, we can project manage your foundations, building consent and services connections. Taking the hassle out of the whole project for you!
Your site works have been completed, your house has been delivered, it’s now time to move in and enjoy your new home.
Can I modify your standard plans?
Do I have options for cladding?
What options do I have for the internal linings?
What are the Council Requirements for these buildings?
Can the really large buildings be transported?
Do you have a Show unit?
Can you deliver NZ wide?
How are the portable cabins finished?
Do you provide insurance?
Yes! We offer Transport Insurance and the Halo 10 year Completion Insurance and Warranty as an optional extra. Our standard insurances are Public Liability and Contracts Works insurance.
Our access is rubbish, can you build on our site?
Sorry but not currently.
How are units powered?
Through an 10amp external caravan plug for the small units. We provide you with the caravan extension lead which you can then plug into a normal power plug. For our transportable homes, we run the main cable through the wall and coil it up under the house. Your electrician will then permanently connect it on site.
Are the TRANSPORTABLE homes insulated?
Yes, we currently use 75mm insulated panel which have an Insulation rating of R2 for the walls and we use 125mm for the ceiling, giving you an insulation rating of R3.6
Can you build to our specifications?
Do you have a minimum rental period?
We offer 6months, 12months or 24months rental contracts.
Do I have to pay a bond to rent one of your transportable homes?
Is there a delivery charge?
How often do I have to pay rent?
Weekly, fortnightly or monthly in advance. You will receive an invoice via email as per the frequency you have chosen on your rental contract.
Do I need council consent for your units?
It is best to check with your local council, but generally anything over 10square meters needs Council Consent.
How much space do I need to get my unit delivered?
Our leased buildings are currently 3.1metres wide so the driveway needs to have a 3.5metres width minimum. The unit sits on top of a 1.2metre truck deck. So, provided the driveway is wide enough, it should be easy to deliver a portable building, but it all depends on where you want the unit located and if there is anything in the way, e.g. trees, power lines etc. We can organize for our trucking company to check out your site and quote the delivery.
