I've received a press release - a bit out of my beat, but decided to post here:
Eco tiny can build a home in 7 days and at prices most millennials and gen now can afford.
Meet Eco tiny New Zealand's newest affordable home. Eco tiny offer 1 bedroom $69,000, 2 bedrooms $99,000 & 3 bedroom homes for under 139k ready to move in. Scandinavian styled, healthy, strong and AFFORDABLE.
Founder and CEO Graham Bloxham developed the Eco tiny home product to disrupt the building industry by providing a fresh take on ready-to-go, portable and stack-able housing. The demand is beyond amazing. I met a client yesterday that said A1 homes told him they had a 9 month wait list. Forget building from wood. That's got 8 layers of slow supply, cost and complexity. We build from SIPS Eco panels which are cheaper, better insulated, stronger and go up in a flash. In the US we are told there are over 20,000 SIPS panel homes going up now and in Canada's frigid climate Eco panels are perfect so to in NZ.!
Eco tiny build homes nationwide in particular for
- LOW COST healthy warm IWI housing to get Whanau out of renting cars and sheds.
- TOURISM, install a stunning Eco tiny on the edge of tourism hot spots and turn it on and off with AirBnB.
- Infill housing in the suburbs. Put two 60 sq homes on your back yard.
- Stack-able pods in the CBD around buildings.
- Low cost aged community dwellings in clusters with amenities and services that are relevant and helpful.
Eco Tiny houses are. 22 sq studio, 34 sqm 1 Brm units and 60 sqm 3 bedroom units.
Bloxham says pre-launch orders are flowing in now! Eco Tiny can manufacture 15 houses a month currently and will be able to get up to 50 a month from mid year.
Eco Tiny’s design process allows customers to mod their pod and add off-the-grid elements such as wind generation and solar to keep costs down further. Bloxham has driven the cost out of solar systems and added in a myriad of IOT Internet of things and sensors to mod the pod up and get connected. "I mean, you can sell your extra energy back to the power company !"
These pods are connected and healthy. You can also check your iPods vital stats including water and solar collected, income tracking if plugged into air bnb which links to Xero and does the tax on the fly, battery levels, warmth and add other gadgets for a connected life.
Bloxham is dedicated. Eco Tiny's goal is to sell 3,000 tiny homes by working with leaders in the changing regulatory environment. Infill housing rule changes, according to Bloxham, Auckland has 300,000 + sections which are now available for development and Hutt City wants 2000 + more homes.! The councils whilst busy are allowing for more development and our multi proof national consent speeds the process up in a big way.
While many tiny house companies behave like traditional house sellers, Bloxham wants to make buying a tiny house akin to buying a new car – fast, friendly, and with exceptional and reliable after sales service.
