While VanHomes and caravans are vastly different in more ways than one, the nature of a VanHome means that under most council legislation in Australia this is treated as a registrable caravan rather than a normal building development.
Like a caravan, you will not likely require any council building approvals to house a VanHome on your property. For families looking to invest in a granny-flat, create a dream retirement home or even a home-office; VanHomes is the perfect solution.
VanHomes. We always recommend you check with your council in regards to council building approval.
VanHomes are a housing solution. This means that the primary difference between a caravan and a VanHome is their purpose. VanHomes are intended to be a long-term dwelling solution, unlike a caravan, which is typically used to move around often and not as a living place.
VanHomes provide families with the ability to easily plant their roots without the logistical issues normally faced when building a granny-flat, home-office or a new home.
Your VanHome would be completely fitted like a new home, and unlike a caravan, can be modified according to your specific needs.
While you won’t be able to move your VanHome by simply linking up to a car, we can offer moving services if you ever choose to change the location of your VanHome in the future. It is our goal to help you make your VanHome feel like your home.
