Frequently Asked Questions

If you’re considering having a kitset home provided by PPS, here are the answers to some questions you may have about the process.
Who will build my house for me?

If you are on Vanua Levu or Tavenui PPS can work with your chosen builder and project manage the building process.

We can also recommend building companies to you. If you are outside of Vanua Levu or Tavenui you can choose your prefered construction or building company.

Can I purchase a kit set house directly from Fraemohs or TRENZ Homes?

PPS are the exclusive service providers for Fiji

As Fraemohs and TRENZ Homes service providers for Fiji all initial enquiries need to be sent to Pacific Property Solutions who will then contact you directly. Fraemohs and TRENZ will also pass any enquiries they receive onto PPS. This means you will get the best advice and relevant information before making any decisions.

How long does it take to make the components for my new house?

Your building contract will include a start date and completion time for your build as there are many variables to consider. PPS will work with you and advise on timing schedules and site preparation before your components arrive in Fiji.

How long does it take to get my new house to Fiji?

Once the container(s) with all components are loaded onto the ship in New Zealand it will take approximately 2 weeks to arrive in Fiji, weather and sailing schedules permitting.

What happens when my house gets to Fiji?

Firstly, it will be cleared by customs officials. If you are on Vanua Levu or Tavenui PPS can arrange to have your container shipped and delivered to your site. If you are outside of these islands you can make arrangements locally to have it delivered to your site using your preferred freight handler.

Can I visit the site while my house is being built?

Yes you can

Of course all safety precausions have to be adhered to and you will need to be mindful that you are on a construction site. However, having a new house built is exciting and we want you to be part of that. You may even get to join in and build some of walls yourself.

Can I change the design?

Yes, designs can be modified to suit your needs and style and PPS will assist you with that.

Can I just buy the shell and fit it out myself?

Yes, some people prefer to puchase a lockable shell and do the interior fit out themselves, or have a professional work with them. Other people like the convenience of pre ordering the kitchen and bathroom so once finished you have a complete turn key home. It’s up to you

Are the houses cyclone rated?

Yes, all house are designed for an extra high wind zone site under NZS 3604:2011 as standard. This is equivalent to a Cat 3 cyclone on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale. The homes can be specifically engineered to Cat 5 upon request.

Why are Faemohs homes different to other kit set houses on the market?

The difference is in the way the wall components are designed to lock together. This makes the house extremely strong, much easier and quicker to put up and less labour intensive saving you time and money.
