So, how much does it cost?

A standard three bedroom home sitting on piles on your site is currently costing $2,399 per square metre gst inclusive. ie, 131m² home x $2,399= $ 314,269 gst inclusive.(South Otago area)

A standard four bedroom home sitting on piles on your site is currently costing $2,239 per square metre gst inclusive. ie, 161.m² home x $2,239 = $ 360,479 gst inclusive .(South Otago area)

This includes us fitting the piles ready for the home onsite, transporting the new home itself and fixing it to the pile foundation. Every site is different and we encourage getting quotes from electricians and drainlayers before confirming to build. We can also arrange for quotes for connections to utilities for you.

The Contempo Style of home with its more complex exterior design is costing approx $30,000.00 in total more than each standard home.

A lot of our homes lend themselves to a timber deck as the indoor/outdoor flow from living areas to outside is now more popular than ever. Big River Homes can also supply pre-fabricated tanalised pine decks built in our yard. Extra piles are placed with the house piles as to sit the deck units on and fix to. This gives an exceptionally quick and effective outdoor living area which looks great! A  6m x 2.4m deck  ususally costs $8,900.00 +gst .(South Otago area).

Big River Homes can arrange for a garage to be built once the home is onsite, roof lines on the transportable home can accommodate a garage roof once the home is onsite. This is done in the yard as to make building the garage onsite much easier.Depending on workload in the  yard however it may be more economical to employ the services of a local builder for the onsite garage construction.
