Why building modular is the best option for your holiday home!

5 reasons why you should choose a modular, prefabricated solution when building a holiday home...


Modular building is the way of the future in construction, and if you are considering a solution for building a new holiday home, you should definitely take a look at the prefabricated options available to you at Tasbuilt!

  1. Makes building in a remote location a breeze – If your dream location for a holiday home is off the beaten track and outside of the suburban chaos (and the best locations generally are), it is very likely that the area is not well serviced by local tradespeople. This means paying a premium and waiting months for the few tradespeople that are available, or paying huge amounts for non-local builders to travel into/stay in your area. A modular home is prebuilt in a controlled factory environment, away from your property. It's then transported to your site when it is around 90% completed, and installed on your property in a matter of weeks!
  2. Ideal for elevated sites to maximise your views – Imagine unwinding on a sun lounge on your balcony, looking out through the canopy of the surrounding trees across to the gentle waves rolling in on the sandy beach. Or, sitting at your kitchen table looking out a floor-to-ceiling window at sweeping 180-degree water views. A modular home is built on an elevated steel platform, securely braced against the elements and ideal for capturing stunning vistas of your surrounding landscape. This elevated platform also avoids the expensive and invasive excavations required to level a site in preparation for a 'traditional' concrete slab.
  3. Minimal maintenance – Modular homes use cutting-edge materials and technology to ensure you don’t end up spending all your holiday time fixing up and repainting your home.
  4. Ease of construction – A decent modular home builder will offer to take care of your entire project, from design and council application, right through to professional cleaning and key handover. This means you don’t have to take time out of your day job to oversee contractors and coordinate suppliers. It also allows you to ascertain a fixed price budget for your new home before the project gets underway. With modular homes being prebuilt in a factory, you have peace of mind that your project is being handled in a professional and timely manner.
  5. Adaptable to suit your site – A holiday home should be built to enhance the holiday experience and lifestyle you are looking for. Features like outdoor showers, boat storage, outdoor entertaining, floor-to-ceiling glass, and spacious bedrooms can all be incorporated into the design of your new modular holiday home!
