Bunnings New Zealand have sold 50 of the flat pack homes as part of their Clever Living Co range in the past year.

The homes can be designed and built off-site before being transported to the right address.

Alternatively, the components of the home can be delivered as a kit before being put together by a builder.

Buyers can choose from five templates, with ‘the Angus’ – a three-bedroom and two-bathroom house – as the popular pick costing about $214,000.

Bunnings  claim a three-bedroom home can be completed within six to eight weeks.

Insulation, security cameras and heat pumps also come included.

Bunnings New Zealand general manager Toby Lawrence told Stuff that the store was quietly selling the flat packs as it wants to test the market. 

Mr Lawrence said the properties were a cheaper alternative for those struggling to become home owners.

Simon Hinds, a Kapiti Coast builder in New Zealand’s lower north island, has built 21 flat pack homes in the past 18 months.

Christchurch builder Richard Tent has been receiving at least two flat pack building enquiries a week.

The homes are not yet being sold in Bunnings stores in Australia and is unknown if the company will plan on selling the properties.
