What is a HABODE? HABODE is a new type of prefab housing that was first developed in New Zealand to suit the unique Australasian conditions. From extreme heat, torrential downpours and extreme winds, HABODE buildings meet or surpass all New Zealand building codes. Now, it’s been adapted for use just about anywhere. Each HABODE has generous living and kitchen areas, 2 or 3 bedrooms, a bathroom and laundry. There are also environmental considerations. Each house can be delivered and assembled in about 2 days.
