Step 1: Tell us what you’re looking for

First, we’ll discuss what you would like to achieve and determine any specific requirements. From there, we’ll talk you through our range of granny flats and kit homes to help you decide which type of portable house would best meet your needs. We will then consider your floor plan including any customisations that may be required.

At this stage, you may wish to visit one of the displays or discuss your requirements in person.

Step 2: Floor plans, customisations and quotation

Once you have determined your requirements and you are happy with the house type and floor plan, we will provide you with a written quotation outlining all customisations (if any) and a payment schedule for you to review.

After you’ve reviewed the quotation, please sign and return it to us.

Up until this stage, there is no cost to you.

Step 3: Assessment of site address

At this stage, we will perform an assessment of the site address to learn if there are any planning or building permit implications, which may affect placing the proposed granny flat or kit house on your site.

To complete the assessment, a non - refundable payment of $399.00 is required. However, this payment will be deducted from the total price quoted, should you proceed with the purchase.

Step 4: Documentation and engineering payment

Once we have determined that there will be no issues placing the granny flat or kit home on your proposed site, we will issue you with a tax invoice for the agreed sum.

An initial, non-refundable deposit of $5,000 is required to commence work on plans, engineering drawings, basix, and energy rating certificates (all of which will be required for you to obtain your building permit).

This deposit is included in the price quoted and will be deducted from the outstanding balance.

Step 5: Council and Permits

We provide you will all the relevant documentation and information to enable a building permit to be issued.

You will need to apply through the Council to obtain the relevant permits.

Alternatively, you can engage an Independent Building Surveyor/Certifier who can also issue relevant permits.

If you are pressed for time, then we would highly recommend hiring an Independent Building Surveyor as they have the ability to accelerate the process.

Step 6: Manufacturing

Once your permits have been received, we require 50% of the remaining balance of your invoice to start the manufacturing process.

We will keep you posted throughout the duration of production, and if there are any changes regarding the estimated time of completion for your granny flat or kit home, we’ll let you know.

Once manufacturing is complete, we’ll contact you for the final amount, which is to be paid prior to delivery.

Step 7: Delivery

Delivery usually occurs from your closest capital city.

Transport costs are included in your initial quote, unless you opt to arrange for your own transportation.

Depending on access to your site or the granny flat purchased, you may also need a crane to place your new home onsite.

We can help you arrange crane assistance if required.

Step 8: Assembly

Your new portable folding home has successfully been delivered to the site! Assembly of your new kit home can be completed through your nominated builder. We have a vast database of qualified builders for you to hire.

Alternatively, you can save money and build it yourself as an Owner Builder. With the help of some friends, most of our folding homes can be assembled within 7 days!
