The Bachpod

Situated on New Zealand’s wild yet uniquely beautiful West Coast, this Haven Bachpod was a pre-built home that we transported to site. With open plan living and a large deck that wraps around two sides of the building, options for outdoor living were imperative to the success of this design. James Hardie Linea Weatherboards provide crisp clean horizontal detailing, contrasting with the vertical lines of the James Hardie Axon Panel. Meanwhile, a calming shade of blue was chosen by the owners to mirror the special vista of sea and sky, visible from every window.

When looking for a bach for my fabulous beach front section at Castlepoint, an architect friend directed me to see a Haven transportable, which really looked to be everything I needed.

The building process was very painless and punctual. I felt Haven were a very professional firm who built a quality product.

There was nothing sweeter than when our bach arrived intact on site and was bedded down within a day. Complete with oven, rangehood, carpet, lights, heated towel rail, etc.

All round, building our ‘Bachpod’ was a very positive experience which, 18 months later, gives us tremendous pleasure and will for many years to come.
