There are many misconceptions about prefabricated, relocatable, modular homes. Here are the top 3 biggest:
Misconception #1: Prefabricated transportable homes are dongas or tin sheds.
There is a spectrum of prefabricated transportable houses. Yes, at one end there is commercial accommodation like dongas, but TR Homes sits at the opposite end of the spectrum. Our houses are 100% true quality home and 0% tin shed. You just have to walk inside one of our homes to see this. TR Homes designs are high-spec and we provide a reassuring 10 year structural guarantee.
Misconception #2: Modular homes are cheap and lower quality
Again, this misconception comes from people’s preconceptions that modular homes are tinny dongas made from basic, lower quality materials. This is just not the case for a TR Homes modular home. We use premium brands like Colorbond, Clipsal, Solver Paints, Caroma, Alder Tapware and BlueScope Truecore® Steel. Offering true quality is a promise we pride ourselves on.
Modular needs to be viewed as simply a different type of build compared to traditional WA and NT building methods. Another alternative to put on the consideration list when you’re thinking of building.
Misconception #3: Prefabricated homes are built overseas
Some might be – but certainly not ours. TR Homes builds all of its homes in purpose-built manufacturing yards in WA and the NT. Our homes are built by Australians, for Australians.
TR Homes builds premium quality steel-framed modular homes for rural and regional families in Western Australia and the Northern Territory. View our range of climate-suitable designs for WA here or the NT here.
