Wellington Prefabricated Houses

Looking to transportable homes for your next build? We’re here to help.

With housing prices on the rise throughout New Zealand, home ownership is becoming less attainable for many Kiwis.

That’s why savvy Wellington locals are choosing prefab houses as an affordable way to get into home ownership. Why take on a hefty mortgage for a house larger than you need? Choosing one of our prefabricated houses for your Wellington section means you’ll have access to a warm, healthy home at an affordable price.

Wellington prefabricated houses Able Spaces

They say you can’t beat Wellington on a good day, and they aren’t wrong! Wellington offers vibrant and creative opportunities from dining out and festivals, to walks along the waterfront and visiting the numerous cultural and food markets.

Wellington’s median house price reached $999,000 in December 2020 – that’s a 17% increase from September 2019. While house prices have fallen since then, they are starting to go back up again.

With two-bedroom homes averaging $563,000, Able Spaces transportable buildings can be placed on a new section or behind an existing dwelling on your property for less than a quarter of the median house price. Transportable homes are an affordable, sustainable alternative for families, first home buyers and property investors.

If you’ve never seen prefabricated houses before, you may be surprised by how stylish these properties are. They provide all the comforts of a newly built house without the hefty price tag.

These fully fitted homes are also relocatable, you can get them disconnected from the foundations and services, load it back on a truck and move them anywhere you like. If you decide to eventually move cities, your portable home can go with you!

What are the benefits of prefabricated houses?

Prefabricated just means that we build your home in our factory then deliver it to you. You get a range of benefits with this style of construction:

  • Precision fabrication with great quality control

  • Minimal waste which helps keep costs down

  • Nothing is exposed to the elements before it is weather-tight

  • Economies of scale from using set designs and buying in bulk

  • The very best value-for-money home

How do we get your prefab home to you?

In the Wellington Region you have a few options for delivery. Smaller designs and even some of the bigger ones (if you have easy access to your site) can be delivered in one go as a finished consented transportable house.

For bigger houses, or sites with tricky or narrow access, we go down the modular house route. We build your home in two narrower sections, then truck them separately to you, and join them together into a finished house onsite.

We provide kitset houses for sites with limited access, that are steep, or if you have a builder you’d like to assemble your home. These are flat packed units that all go together on-site to create a building just the same as we would in our factory.

We don’t just do prefabricated houses either – Able Spaces can help with your commercial building needs. We offer a range of portable cabins, offices, lunchrooms and toilet blocks for our commercial customers. We also offera range of sleepouts and studios to hire in Wellington.

We don’t just do transportable homes to buy – Able Spaces can help with a range of sleepouts and studios to hire in Wellington.

What our customers say about us

"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 =)"

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"
