Our Residential Portable Buildings

We’re here to make it easier than ever before for all New Zealanders to have the home and life of their dreams. You’ll find us quite unique, for building folk. We smile a lot, we know what we are doing, we are super helpful and we really do care – about you, about the quality of our work and making sure it all comes together perfectly.

We even care about the environment. Whatever space you need, we’ll create a transportable building solution that will work for you.

We currently have a variety of affordable, quality, energy efficient relocatable home designs: 1, 2, 3 and 4 bedrooms. We offer portable homes for sale in the Greater Wellington area and throughout NZ. All our portable houses have a fully functioning kitchen, laundry, bathroom and storage. Contact us to discuss your project!

Do you need to accommodate extra family or guests? Are your kids wanting to save for their first home? Are the in-laws or elderly parents downsizing and wanting to be close by? Able Spaces manufactures a range of sleepouts and portable studios you can choose from. If you’re looking for something else, please get in touch and we’ll help you design it.

When a standard transportable home layout doesn’t quite cut the mustard, here we have another solution for your space needs: Modular Homes. Whatever space you need, whatever the site, we’ll help you create a modular home solution that will work for you.

Need some extra space to work? Want some work life balance and work closer to home? We have a variety of portable cabins for sale in NZ, in various sizes as we understand every clients’ needs are different.

"Norma and the team at Able Spaces were fantastic to deal with when we were purchasing our new club rooms building. They were more than happy to accommodate our needs and wants, especially as we were after a multipurpose type building. We would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a new building, their attention to detail is exceptional and they are happy to go the extra mile."

"Dealing with Norma at Able Spaces was an experience where we were kept informed of progress on our new custom built office that has arrived on site in tip top condition. All the comments from clients (including builders) are very favorable about the fit-out and the quality of the build. Thanks Norma and her team. A very happy customer here!"

Bernard, Marton

"My parents love their warm little home that Norma and her team built especially for them. Taking into account all the extra requirements for their limited mobility and old age. Norma allowed us to customize so many parts that have made all the difference in making the house long term livable and wheelchair friendly. Thank you Able Spaces for all your hard work."

Nicole, Featherston

" The building is a great success and I would be happy to give anyone a recommendation "

Jeremy, Riversdale

" Thank you so much for your excellent service, and providing us with the unit at such sort notice and so close to Christmas! We are sure to approach you for another rental in the future should we have a need (such as a visiting German relative!) "

Barbara, Maungaroa Valley

" I must tell you how happy I am with my new portable unit which I looked at yesterday - looking forward to it being ready for me to move into when I get back from my trip to the UK.  My friend Murray was very impressed with the unit too and the high standard of it.  So we were two happy people - despite the pouring rain - when we left Wellington after our viewing. "

Rosemary, Masterton

" Norma was an absolute pleasure to deal with! Beginning to end, communication was immediate and always friendly. Our 2 bedroom building we had was awesome, very spacious and comfortable. The kids and I loved having our own space at the family home =)
Highly recommended "

Monique, Wainuiomata

" We love our home, it's so warm and cosy. We are so happy we decided to go with Able Spaces, After much deliberation on homes, even the one that has just recently been on Fair Go, I talked with that guy for weeks, the poor people who followed through, had their money taken and no home! Norma you have been amazing and delivered on everything we wanted. You are a very honest Director of your company. We have no hesitation in recommending Able Spaces Homes "
