WHAT ARE THEY MADE FROM?
Flat pack homes are mostly constructed from SIPs (Structurally Insulated Panels) that provide a flat, smooth surface. Externally, they can be decorated with cedar or larch cladding or zinc for a contemporary look, traditional painted or stained weatherboarding and brick or stone slips to complement surrounding buildings. Some companies are looking at more eco-friendly materials. Bamboo Living Homes constructs modular houses from, as the name suggests, bamboo!
WHAT ARE THE OPTIONS?
• Turnkey Fully finished homes built to your exact specifications.
• Shell or Bare Bones units that contain all the pieces you need – floor, ceiling, walls, doors, windows etc – but you put it all together yourself. This could be a good package if you’re a self-builder.
• Basic Build – the company provides the pieces and puts them together, but you fit the basics such as the flooring, kitchen and bathroom.
