No one is talking about the hidden crisis facing New Zealand. We have an aging population, not enough resthome or retirement home options and those don’t suit everyone anyways. With the Ready Homes Extended Family plan you can have your own space and yet still take care of your own! Adaptable and of course can be multi storey for the larger families the Extended Family option is something we all need to think about now. 4 Double Bedrooms, individual ensuites, 2 laundries, shared kitchen & dining, storage space and excellent indoor outdoor flow makes the Ready Homes Extended Family option perfect for the family who wants to stay together but not in each others pockets. Alternately could be used for a group of friends who want to get on the property ladder and pool their resources to get started.


After the awesome response we had from facebook with this layout (and feedback) we have revised the Extended Families plan to make more indoor outdoor flow, added the deck option so you can see how that might work. Moved bathrooms & living space around and added windows & doors to make it flow better. If the 4 rooms aren’t enough we can add up to 3 levels without major issues. (bottom level gets allll the deck space) PM us with  your email address for details.


Priced at between 350k & 400k and at 118m2 of living space (plus delivery/install/consents & connections) this makes it affordable for families joining back together, empty nesters welcoming their kids back or the group of friends wanting to get out of the rent trap – (price excludes deck)



Off Grid Option

We also have an “Off-Grid” option which comes with a 25,000 ltr water tank, low water toilet, roofs for all the containers with spouting to connect to the tank and solar panels with storage as well as all the low voltage lights etc to make it more efficient. This has come in at 35-40k for a totally off grid option in addition to the base price of the selected units.


Finance Option

Finance options are available requiring a no deposit option to approved purchasers (or up to 20% to others) with the outstanding balance payable over a number of years.


The finance can be used to bridge the funding gap from banks who won’t normally lend until the ReadyHome is installed, then it can be refinanced if required. There is a very simple online application form required for finance approval and this is normally granted within 48hrs.


Alternatively, if you do not require finance our payment policy is 20% non-refundable engagement deposit, 20% on build contract signing, 10% on consent received, 20% on lined, 20% Pre Joinery and final 10% prior to delivery.

Price disclaimer: Prices are subject to change at any time without notice. If you wish to lock in your price then we can do that. Just let us know.
