There are many factors to consider when making the decision to build your new home. It can be difficult to navigate, especially when you are trying to build a prefabricated home design. Genius Homes is committed to making your build process as simple as possible. We’ve compiled the top five things to know about building a prefab house.
Budgeting and financing your prefab home
Recent data from REINZ (Real Estate Institute of New Zealand) shows that the median price for residential property in New Zealand is $826,000. This represents a 25% increase over the previous 12 months. Many are now looking for affordable ways to get into the housing market. Prefab home building offers many cost-saving benefits. Additionally, because of the controlled environment in which it is built, overruns can be avoided.

Prefab homes are more difficult to finance or get a mortgage than traditional or kitset homes. This is due to how they were built. Typically, loans for traditional or kitset homes are released at agreed stages. This allows you to pay your builders once each stage has been completed. This protects you from being charged for delays in the build and ensures that you don’t pay any extra. You only pay interest on loan amounts released. This means that if a delay occurs, you won’t have to pay interest on work not completed. Prefab homes are built quickly and delivered directly to your location. Banks view them differently. We are happy to discuss with you the possibility of adjusting the payment terms to suit the lender’s needs, if necessary.
How to choose the right floor plan for your house?
The floorplan and design of your new home should be in line with your future plans and lifestyle. It must also fit within your budget. When weighing the different design options, it is important to take into account the following:
Budget: Set a realistic budget with an allowance for unexpected costs.
Lifestyle: Think about how your lifestyle will affect the layout. A master suite close to other bedrooms is a preferred layout for young children, while teenagers might prefer a separate space. Consider whether you entertain often. Are you a fan of spending time outdoors? Do you have any hobbies or job requirements? Are you more comfortable with open-plan living, or prefer more private spaces to relax?
Site specifics: Take into account the site’s requirements, including its size, slope, and any building restrictions. Also, consider the best location for views, maximising sun and privacy.
Features: Make a list of non-negotiable elements (such as additional storage, bedrooms or other functional elements) and prioritize them over any other features. These “nice-to-haves” may include ensuites, walk-in-wardrobes and office nooks. However, each household has its own priorities.
Future-proof: Consider your life stage to ensure that the layout can adapt with you. Is there enough space for your extended family? Is it easy to access and spacious enough for you to move around in?
Style: Choose an architectural style that best suits your tastes. This will set the tone and reflect in your floorplan layout (including window and roof placement).
Prefab homes can be customized and upgraded.
Each Genius Homes plan option includes a standard list of inclusions. There are no additional costs for transport or connecting the house to utilities. If you prefer to personalize your home, we offer a variety of customization options that you can choose from. These include floor-to-ceiling windows and extended decks. Cedar cladding can also be added.
Understanding prefab home construction and the transport process

Color selection and consents from council: We can send you the documents required for council consent once we have received your confirmation. While you select the details of your new home including the colours and fittings,
Construction: Your home is constructed in our fully enclosed warehouse according to industry standards. With the use of only the most efficient materials and skilled tradesmen, our factory production line allows us to save time and money. Each home starts with a steel frame. Then, flooring, framing, windows, doors, plasterboard, insulation and roofing are all done.
Interior fit-out: Once the exterior has been completed, the interior walls have been lined with gib. Then, all the painting and fitting out of kitchens, bathrooms and wardrobes is complete. Floor coverings are installed, electrical and plumbing are completed.
Site work and delivery: Your new home is delivered from Genius Homes Timaru to your South Island area. It will also be connected to the on-site services. Before the final inspection, we’ll finish any touch-ups, add decking, baseboards, or carports, and hand over the house.
