    Portable Building Homes Supplier | Granny Flat accommodation

    Came across this 'portable home' website today. It looks like a shipping container from outside, but it cost less than 50k for a 2 bedder self contained "home". The material doesn't look too bad from the video. Just wondering if any PCer bought something like this before?

    Throw one of these on your backyard to improve cashflow, probably also subjected to council approval like granny flat.

    I checked out the portable homes. 50-55k for the kit. Homes are not too bad but 40-45 sq m. Add another 2k for transport, 20k for plumbing and wiring, 7k for private certifier, comes out 82k for a small 42 sq m granny flat. I can get regular 60 sq m granny flat with much better finish for 120k. Don't really see the savings.
