Has anyone built with a transportable home company lately? i am interested in them for down the track, not looking to do anything immeadiately so not up for contacting a sales rep to give me the whole spiel, so thought i would post my question here instead Just wondering about ballpark figures for a 3x2 to use as a holiday home so i know whether to pursue this. Can they actually look nice or do they look like Jerry Springer trailer park homes? I saw a doco about them in America and the industry seems to be more advanced over there. Any advice?

Hello aspiringpropertymogul,I can give you a some information about transportable homes in this region (Wagga Wagga NSW)as my brother owns the company that I am sending the link to http://www.austwidehomes.com.au/.I have no idea how prices would compare with those over your way,but would assume they would be somewhat similiar .Even though most of the transportable homes are clad in Hardiplank,Ceder,etc,we have brick veneered quite a few over the years.I think the biggest drawback to them is the shallow pitched roofs (they are required to meet the height restrictions involved in transporting them to the sites)But they are quite nice homes and suited to the rural blocks that they usually end up on.The extensive use of varendahs adds to their appeal also I think.Regards Terry

Maybe. What if you choose a builder, spend months planning, pay deposit, get contracts and you don't like the clauses? I'd judges short listing some builders and…
