or combine multiple units together with decking and awnings to create a breezeway style house!

Select from our standard styles below, or design your own.

Transport Information

A factory-built cabin or donga is most cost efficient if the length does not exceed 8 meters and if the width does not exceed 3.4 meters (including gutters). 3.4m is the maximum legal width for transporting goods without a police escort. Transportable buildings wider than 3.4m will incur a far greater cost due to delivery.

Therefore, we recommend choosing a transportable with a width of no greater than 3.3m.

Standard Portable Building Floorplans

The following are a selection of our standard cabin floorplans which have an appropriate span for construction as a small Transportable House or Cabin.

Custom Design

Any span or length is possible and internal walls can easily be re-arranged or removed as required.
Please mention this to our sales person or advise us of your requirements using the enquiry form at the bottom of the page

Finishing options

Customers can either buy a factory-built Transportable Cabin built to lockup stage (no internal lining or fittings), or fully finished intenally and externally (many options available).

Transportable Cabins come on steel flooring with Universal Beam skids. (Footings and posts will have to be in place before delivery schedule).
