Evolution of Transportable Homes Designs

 

There was a time, not long ago, when the only deterrent for purchasing relocatable homes was the lack of design options. Companies used to have a standardised group of floor-plans and designs so they could keep the costs down to make more affordable homes readily accessible. However, these designs were plain, featureless and frankly quite boring. But as consumers discovered the benefits of modular homes and the demand increased, so did the need for homes to have more character and fabulous living spaces.

Although large transportable homes are an emerging yet steadily growing market in Australia, mid-range affordable housing in the form of relocatable homes is increasing at a rapid rate. The portable homes phenomenon is driven by the fact they include all the mod-cons of traditionally built homes and the inability to detect the difference between the two build methods.

 

Today’s modular homes can have –

  • splendid kitchens with central islands
  • bars
  • saunas
  • spa-baths
  • skylights
  • fireplaces
  • split-levels
  • home theaters
  • grand staircases
  • twin walk-in-robes
  • entire walls of glass
  • twin bathroom vanities
  • granite and marble features
  • very wide concertina doors
  • central vacuum cleaning units
  • and much, much more …

 

If you are designing your own dream home and having it built using modular building methods, then your options are limited purely by your budget. If you are creating your own design, it would probably be a good idea to look for architects with experience in modular homes design.

 

For people looking at standardised floor-plans, your options are vast. From a small 7 square home, up to 20 squares; which is a good sized family home with generous bedrooms and spacious living areas. Some of the homes I have seen have left me struggling to find anything I would like to change as they seem to have everything included. It is all up to preference, budget and what makes you happy.
