We’ve chosen some of the best locations in Northland, and designed beautiful, sophisticated homes that suit the natural environment and surroundings.

Transportable Homes

Ideal for a sharemilkers cottage, holiday home or first home, our transportable homes are simple in design featuring three bedrooms, a bathroom, and an open plan living/dining area and kitchen.


Your home can be as individual as you are; so let us know your specifications, and we can tailor a transportable home to your requirements. Unfortunately at this time we do not have any transportable homes constructed.


At this time we have one transportable home nearing completion (Tinopai). Check out this design on the showhomes page.


This compact, yet modern home could be perfect for your new beach house or farm cottage.


Minor Dwelling? Farm Cottage? Semi Retirement Unit? This ever so flexible option could be perfect for your site.

What our customers are saying....

“We looked around at a number of building firms to start with, but felt the most comfortable with Homeworld. We knew a couple of the staff there who took us under their wing and guided us throughout the whole process. We felt very comfortable with them right from the start. Everyone had warned us that building a new home would be a very stressful experience, yet we found the whole process very stress-free.”
Reece and Jade, Whangarei
“As for the style, I soon realised that if you wanted to achieve a particular style, you had to follow it through with ‘everything’. You couldn’t get away with putting modern fittings in this style of home. I had lots of fun researching the ‘Pioneer Cottage’ style homes and fittings and enjoyed incorporating them into my new home. Homeworld were very accommodating and worked closely with us to ensure we were all on the same track. We love our new home and I would definitely work with the whole team again.”
Marie & Derek Van der Kwaak
“We wanted to let you know how pleased and happy we are with our new home. The materials and workmanship are of the best quality and we simply cannot fault anything. We build our last three houses on a labour only basis and they went pretty smoothly, but I must say it was a much easier and more enjoyable experience having Homeworld take care of everything.”
Faye & Neil
