Benefits and Considerations for Small Homes in NZ

The popularity of small homes in NZ is based on much more than necessity. Such a home:

  • has lower energy bills due to reduced heating and air conditioning costs
  • requires less cleaning and general maintenance so you have more time to do something more interesting
  • costs less to buy and insure so is more affordable overall
  • can, if necessary and a transportable home, be disconnected and transported to another site
  • is more practical for first-time buyers and for those who are down-sizing
  • can be built and installed more quickly than a larger property
  • is better for the environment, which is an important consideration for those looking to reduce their impact on the planet.

Small houses aren’t for everyone, while our homes offer significantly more space than regular transportable cabins in NZ you need to consider seriously before making your choice. A small house can mean less privacy, smaller living spaces and restricted storage capacity. Before moving to a small house, therefore, you may need to declutter and plan the available space so you can make best use of it and ensure it is sufficient for your needs. Living in a smaller property often means simply living smarter and adapting to what you have.
