David Wraight Cottages & Transportables

Experience the difference

Transportable & Relocatable Cottages

An exciting new venture for us are our new bespoke transportable, relocatable homes. Experience the difference of a David Wraight Cottage for your new home, bach, holiday home or an extra accommodation option on your property. These compact, moveable small homes of approximately 100 sq. metres will be built in our yard to our exceptionally high standard and with the period features and modern conveniences we have become known for.

Tiny houses are becoming more popular in New Zealand as more people decide to downsize and simplify their living spaces. With clever planning and design our transportable cottages can lead to a simple yet fulfilling lifestyle, freeing you from large mortgages and giving you the freedom to enjoy our beautiful surroundings.

Our transportable cottages are constructed in our yard in Kaituna, Marlborough. They are built on steel beams, which works for the transport company to pick the homes up ready to move them to your site. 

Here's a few advantages of a smaller home

  • Lower cost of heating in winter and cooling in summer
  • Lower cost of the home – an affordable home which is brand new and built to today’s building standards
  • Lower cost of maintenance
  • Getting started in the property market or a good way to scale down to something easy care
  • A great way to pay off some mortgage and free up some money
  • Also great for baches, extra accommodation, guest accommodation – the list can go on.


How it works

Transport from yard to building site

These cottages are built in our yard and then transported to your site. David Wraight Transportable Cottages are completed inside and out (ie. plumbing, electrical fittings, floor coverings) and can be transported within New Zealand up to 110 sq. metres in size. Within Marlborough they can be built slightly bigger (subject to site accessibility). 

Coffey House RemovalsCoffey House Removals are available to transport all our homes from our yard. They will take care of the permits required for this as well as piling your cottage. They will also submit your drainage plan with the pile plan to the relevant Council, along with the engineer’s design with the pile details for you.

Coffey House Removals will also do a site and route assessment to make sure there will be no issues in getting your new home to the required site.

 Things you need to connect up:

  • Water mains
  • Electrical mains
  • Drains/sewer system

If you are in the Marlborough region we will recommend our sub contractors to you for this.
