New Zealand is blessed with some of the most beautiful countryside and coastlines in the world. Achieving your own holiday getaway to make the most of our natural spaces is easy with one of Lockwood's smaller house designs.

Constructed with the unique Lockwood building system solid timber planks and strong aluminium profiles securely locked rather than nailed together the Papai works equally well as a first home or a charming getaway.

This particular show home, currently at the Fairfield Garden Centre in New Plymouth, was built by franchisee Paul Jones Construction, a firm working with Lockwood for over 30 years.

Director Paul Jones says that indoor-outdoor living is at the heart of the compact home.

Despite its relatively modest footprint, the modern and bright Papai achieves a roomy feel. Both bedrooms have generous wardrobe space, for example, and the bathroom is surprisingly spacious. There is also a utility room that could be used as a small third bedroom.
