wairarapa box 131 transportable home

Our lovely clients made the move from their long-term home in Raglan to Pinot Grove in South Wairarapa and took an Elevate home along with them! With such a big move to unfamiliar territory, they could be sure at least, that the house they would live in felt like home. 

This 130m2 home has a restful colour scheme with sandstone grey iron and graphite stained cedar on the exterior and soft neutral tones paired with Scandinavian style furnishings and decor on the interior. The standard Box 130 floor plan was modified to change the third bedroom into an office, providing more space for a larger full sized laundry, which catered more to their lifestyle.

Building a new home can be a daunting prospect and with such a big move to organise as well, we wanted to know how they found their new build experience. They said: "The building process and dealing with Lee and the Elevate Homes team was wonderful. We have loved the whole process. It was actually a shame when it came to an end. We would certainly recommend them - and we do - as often people (strangers) call in to talk about our new house and we show them around it. We have absolutely no complaints about anything."

What our clients had to say...

Tell us about your home and who will be living in it.

Why did you choose to purchase a transportable home over an on-site built home?
We initially heard about Elevate from my brother who was living in Sydney at the time. He'd seen it on the internet and was impressed. We chose to purchase a transportable home over an on-site built house because there are less hidden costs and we knew what we were getting for our money. 

Why did you end up choosing an Elevate Home?
We chose an Elevate Home because when we first walked into the show home in Cambridge, we just thought "we could live in this".

How did you find the building process?
The building process and dealing with the Elevate Homes team was wonderful. We have loved the whole process. It was actually a shame when it came to an end. We would certainly recommend them - and we do - as often people (strangers) call in to talk about our new house and we show them around it. We have absolutely no complaints about anything. 

What part of the house are you most happy with? 
The best part of our house - all of it! We wouldn't change a thing.

What is your advice for someone interested, but not too sure, about purchasing a transportable home?
We liked the idea of more compact living. We would definitely encourage people to purchase a transportable home.
