We've put together some of our most commonly asked questions so you can find the answers quickly and easily. If you don't see the answer to your question here please contact us and our team will be more than happy to help.

Does Manor Build have a showroom?

Yes, we have a superb site located at 40 Ocean View Parade, New Plymouth. Feel free to come visit and walk through our amazing factory at the same time.

What is included in the price?

The price is for the complete house (ex yard), inclusive of all painting, carpets, kitchens, vinyl, bathrooms etc. The price excludes decks & verandas, freight & foundations, as well as council costs for consents. We can provide accurate estimations of these costs at the time of quoting.

What consents are required?

You will require two consents. A building consent and a relocate consent, Manor Build will lodge and obtain these consents for you, making the whole process as painless as possible.

Can I customise a Manor Build plan?

Absolutely, due to our unique construction none of our internal walls are load-bearing. This means we can easily customize our layout to suit each customer’s individual requirements. Find out more here.

Where does Manor Build deliver?

We deliver to a wide range of destinations, primarily in the mid and lower North Island, please contact us so we can confirm access to the site for you. Learn more about our delivery process, here.

Is there a kitset option?

No this is not an option; we sell and supply fully complete homes only.

Can I get finance for a Manor Build home?

Yes, you can get finance. We are more than happy to assist and guide you through this process. We partner with a number of reputable lending experts to help our customers obtain finance for our transportable homes. Read more about prefab financing, or contact us to talk through the process.

Can I get a Manor Build home built on-site?

No, we only produce them in our dedicated manufacturing plant, which is not restricted by any weather conditions. This helps us avoid stressful delays and stay on schedule. Read more about Our Process.

What site preparation is required?

It does depend on the contour of the land, but normally a Manor Build home only requires a vegetation-free area.

How long does the build process take?

The entire build process takes between 24 to 30 weeks from sign up to sign off. This includes final design, council consents, factory schedule waitlist, construction of home, delivery, and final touch ups. These time frames are subject to the council lead times for consents, potential consent issues, and of course the amount of homes that are already scheduled in our busy factory.

Can I change the fixtures or floor coverings?

Yes, no problem at all. Once your design/layout is known we sit down and go through all of these requirements and choose the appropriate product to suit.

Does Manor Build offer a guarantee?

Yes, with every Manor Build home you have the option of adding on a 10 Year Guarantee to give you added peace of mind. 

What cladding options are available?

Our preferred option is to use Weathertex Cladding, which has options for both horizontal or vertical weatherboards, a large number of profiles, and has the added benefit of having a substantial 25-year guarantee. Learn more about the cladding we use.

Can I complete the internal finishes myself?

No, our prefab process means that we complete all interior work before delivering your house. This just leaves services connections, touch-ups, final fixings and on-site work to complete after delivery.
