Solutions to home ownership?

In a housing market that feels like it’s always out of reach, young Australians are exploring alternative solutions to homeownership. Recent trends, such as the rise of tiny homes and container homes, seem promising at first glance.

However, before you make the leap into these compact living spaces, it’s crucial to understand their limitations and why quality modular homes present a more viable option, particularly for those considering a move to regional areas.

The Drawbacks of Tiny Homes and Container Homes

Tiny homes and container homes are often seen as a quick fix to housing affordability. This was highlighted in a recent article. But there are times when the reality can be quite different:

  1. Limited Size and Liveability: These homes might look cozy, but the limited space can quickly become a drawback. Living in a tiny home means constantly managing a very small area, which can lead to discomfort and impracticality over time.
  2. Quality Issues: Many tiny and container homes are constructed with lower-quality materials, leading to potential structural problems and reduced longevity. Additionally, these homes may not meet Australian building standards, making council approval difficult and expensive.
  3. Compliance and Approval Challenges: Imported homes often fail to comply with local building codes, leading to significant hurdles in securing council approval. This can result in costly modifications or even the need to replace the home entirely.
The Advantages of Quality Modular Homes

At Manor Homes, we focus on providing high-quality modular homes that address these issues. Here’s why our homes are the superior choice:

  1. Spacious and Liveable Designs: Our modular units are designed to maximize space and comfort, offering larger layouts and tailorable floor plans that provide ample living space for families and individuals alike.
  2. Superior Quality and Durability: Built with high-quality materials and advanced construction techniques, our homes are designed to last. Each home meets or exceeds Australian standards, ensuring peace of mind for homeowners.
  3. Compliance and Ease of Approval: We handle the entire council approval process, ensuring that all our homes comply with local building codes and standards. This eliminates the stress and uncertainty often associated with alternative housing solutions.
Supporting Regional Growth

Choosing quality modular homes from Manor Homes can significantly contribute to regional growth. Here’s how:

  1. Affordable Land: Regional areas offer more affordable land compared to urban centres, making it easier for young Australians to become homeowners without breaking the bank.
  2. Community Development: Building quality modular homes in regional areas can help foster community development and economic growth. New residents bring increased demand for local services, businesses, and infrastructure, benefiting the entire region.
  3. Sustainable Living: Modular homes are more sustainable than traditional builds due to their efficient construction process and reduced waste. This aligns with the growing trend towards eco-friendly living and helps preserve the natural beauty of regional areas.


While tiny homes and container homes might seem like an attractive option for those looking to break into the housing market, they come with significant risks and drawbacks.
