Breaking the pre-fab / modular / transportable home myths

Marketing

We’re breaking the misconceptions of pre-fab / modular / transportable homes out there!


Myth #1 – Pre-fab means low quality

One of the biggest misconceptions about pre-fabricated homes is that they are low quality and mass produced. This may have been true in the past but it’s not the case today and especially at TR Homes.

While it’s hard to put a finger on exactly what makes TRue quality, one thing is for sure – you’ll know when you see it. After 43 years honing our craft, TR Homes promise to deliver effortlessly stylish, enduring dream modular homes tailored to your unique lifestyle. That’s our promise to you.

The Pilbara: You'll find TRue quality inside every TR home.


Myth #2 – Modular homes are boxy and inflexible with design

Yes, modular homes are built in modules but this doesn’t mean all designs are boxy. We continue to challenge people’s perceptions of modular with our flexibility in design.

Our most popular designs exude open plan living, dining, kitchen and entertaining areas (demanded by the modern family) high ceilings and pitched roofs and are anything but boxy!

Thanks to an in-house design and drafting team we’re are able to create custom, one-off designs with expert guidance to ensure you get your dream home with the minimum of fuss. We can also adjust our existing designs to suit your needs or the needs of your family.

Our experience and designers allow us to produce flexible living spaces that have everything a house needs to feel like a home: style, practicality, liveability and quality.

Myth #3 – Transportable homes are like dongas, aren’t they?

Transporting our homes on the back of trucks allows us to service individuals and families in towns across WA and the NT where tradesman and material supply is restricted or monopolized by one or two builders.

By building our homes at one of our four manufacturing facilities, we can completely control the build from start to finish, reducing dependency on external suppliers and accelerating build times, compared to tradition on-site building methods.

Transportable homes have a bad reputation mainly due to the mining boom when many ‘builders’ popped up, leveraging off huge demand in the market. We’ve been around for more than 43 years while a number of these builders have now disappeared or emerged in financial trouble.

You can expect the highest quality in TR homes which all include an industry-best 10 year structural guarantee, premium Australian brands and materials like Colorbond, Clipsal, Solver Paints, Caroma, Alder Tapware and BlueScope Truecore® Steel, independent energy rating, engineering and building approvals, stainless steel appliances, full internal/external painting, built-in robes to every bedroom and so much more.
