Reducing space, not quality, with a transportable weatherboard home

Waste, costs and space - the more you can reduce in today’s world, the better! This maxim is also true in building design with ‘tiny homes’ no longer perceived of as just for eccentrics!

Size-wise David Wraight’s transportable homes are actually far from tiny at approximately 104 sq. metres. It’s the structure and clever design that makes them completely compact, ready to be trucked from their Marborough building yard to buyers throughout New Zealand.

The houses include the timber period features the company is known for, including Envira rusticated weatherboards which fit perfectly to the look and quality of the buildings. These weatherboards have been installed using matching pre-cut scribers to ensure a straight, evenly spaced and weathertight finish.

David Wraight uses many components from the Envira system including timber window facings and sills, which not only look great but also provide the benefits and aesthetics that only a natural product can.

The addition of Envira boxed corners not only adds to the building style but its watertightness, too.
