Imagine your dream pod home, designed by you. Flooded with natural light, cozy rooms flow into one another and into open-plan spaces that open towards nature. A house nestled in a meadow, built by a mountain lake, or on the beach in a sandy grassland. A place where you can always feel at home, even if you’re just taking a break from the city. The great thing is, making this dream a reality is easier now than it has ever been before. And it’s mainly down to one innovation: prefabricated architectural elements. More than just a breakthrough in terms of building costs, sustainability, and convenience, prefab structures also provide a huge range of advantages. In this modern prefab house list, you will discover just how varied and beautifully designed these types of homes really are.
Before we launched our Podular concept we spent two years researching the best materials, tested, negotiated with oil suppliers, made sure they were all E1 certified, eco earth-friendly, forest stewardship council, European standards and partnered with local proudly SA experts in their field.
Understanding your requirements, are you looking for the perfect plot, do you already have the perfect hideaway, the location, accessibility, off-grid, or connecting to existing services, size, and most importantly a budget to work towards.
Property research to determine restrictions/parameters, once we know exact restrictions we can apply for relaxations of parameters if needed. If no relaxation applications, we can proceed with council submission drawings immediately without further involvement from client. Client is billed directly by FRAME (experts).
Drawing up a base floor plan, elevations, lighting, roof type, conceptional ideas, electrical, external, and internal finishes, references, basic furniture layout, glazing, and references of all suggested materials that will be hard-wearing and lasting. At this stage, we can do multiple layouts for you to consider.
Once we have an approved layout with finishes we will do a cost estimate on the final desired design, this can be used as a guide for any one of the accredited builders either you or we suggest (the design, materials, and scale can be adjusted for your budget).
Supply a full technical pock with oil recommended suppliers. These are suppliers that have successfully delivered on oil projects. Solo systems, flooring, electrical fittings, kitchens, cupboards, plumbing, awnings, pools, heated pool systems, and furniture. All suppliers are accredited and will supply certificates of compliance.
We only work with highly skilled artisans, construction specialists that understand the lightweight steel system with an amazing reputation to deliver the perfect product with great post service. We work with them to make sure that they deliver a fast effective, efficient product (the way oil things should be).
We would also consult through the process, to see if there are simpler ideas. Look for efficiencies, improve on ideas, and help with any additional requirements. The user experience is key, morning coffee, where to put your bag (unpacked or not), and any additional support throughout the process and after.
