Make the most of your space and add a SNUG home.

What are SNUG homes?

A SNUG home is a secondary house made from prefabricated parts. It is pre-made offsite under controlled manufacturing conditions, ensuring a quality build. There is less construction time onsite, and less disruption to the new homeowner. A finished SNUG home is trucked in one piece to your backyard, and craned on to foundations before connection to services. Alternatively, it arrives in preconstructed panels that are easily shifted into position, before rapid assembly by bolting.

How were SNUG homes chosen?

The design competition for the best SNUG home launched to massive interest at PrefabNZ's CoLab event.

Dozens of teams from the building, architecture and design industries submitted plans for a prefabricated SNUG home smaller than 65m2, which meets the Auckland Council's definition of a minor dwelling.

Judges assessed on: construction techniques, building code compliance, affordability, flexibility and adaptability, functionality, design and aesthetics, sustainability and energy efficiency, and presentation of concept drawings.

The judges narrowed their selection to twelve finalists, before awarding the six winning SNUG home designs.
