How Much is My Modular Home Going to Cost?


A very good question asked by a lot of enthusiastic relocatable home-owners-to-be. To be brutally honest, there are many factors that will impact on the price of your modular home.

To understand what makes up the price of portable homes; I have put together a quick guide, which includes but is not limited to the following:

Standardised floor-plan designs and styles will generally be more value for your money.

2-storey modular homes are less expensive per square meter because the fixed costs remain the same for the greater area; like foundations, footings, slab, building site preparation and connection to electricity, water, gas and sewage. In saying this, the modules required to make the 2nd-storey increase the cost.


Each module of the portable home will increase the cost because of

  • construction of the module,
  • transportation (as each module requires a flat bed truck,
  • permits (transportation, council and insurances)
  • assembly and finishing (each module requires a certain amount of labour from a building team)

    Would love to research your plans, costs etc further. I have a property in Helena Valley Perth which is sloping.
    I am looking at 3 bedrooms + large living area to take in views also like another space for office or tv room.
