Bunning - flat pack homes

Postby johnsmith » 18 May 2019, 10:22

Bunning NZ is testing the market selling flatpack homes in NZ with prices from $75k for two bedroom to $123 000 for a four bedroom house.


Not a lot of detail about what is included in the price.

I imagine it won't be long before they are here.
It is bound to shake up the housing market

All a bit basic—but easier to pay off than buying a house on the market! Can always add pergolas, decking yadda yadda later.

It doesn’t include utilities and land. I don’t know the Aussie market. It may be a brilliant idea, but you have to consider everything.

These would be prefabricated homes, correct? They can be very nice and a less expensive alternative.

Considering the majority live in match box houses, this is just following the trend towards dumb stupidity living in Aus, where bushfires are the norm and they will last just a few short years, as does every other building that goes up today.

Once you add the cost of services, labour etc, you'd be getting close to $200000 and still live in a flimsy, easy entered and combustible house. When for half the price, you could build an earthen home 4 times the size which would last for centuries, fire proof, burglar proof, passively climate controlled and off grid. The way ideological humanity goes about life, makes no sense whatsoever and their life outcomes prove that over and over.

If you include labour on both and services there is no way your could build a house 4 times as big as the normal for half the price, but I agree with what your saying about making environmental suitable homes for our different area's. Most of our box houses are built as fast as posable because our labour is so expensive…..adding lots of labour intensive materials will only increase the up front cost of the house, overall ownership could be less with passive heating and cooling but most people don't look far into the future. :purple

There are lots of companies in QLD that are making pre built houses that can be delivered to your block and just the services connected and you have your home, some of them are getting pretty good options. :purple

Yes, can see options.

But I like high ceilings and want good insulation—double width studs and 2-3 insulation batts in the cavity. Can do things like raked ceilings, minor change.
