PrefabNZ.SNUG_Logo.jpgWhat is a SNUG 'a home in my backyard' ?

A SNUG is a complementary dwelling for your back garden - a home for your children as they adventure out into independent living, a safe place for extended family members, or a work-space to provide an alternative to commuting.

SNUGs will be smaller than 65m2, to meet Auckland Council's definition of a minor dwelling.

SNUGs are manufactured buildings. That means that they are designed to be made offsite under controlled manufacturing conditions before being transported to site either whole or in pieces for assembly. This means less time building on site, less disruption, and higher quality.

The competition end result will be a pattern-book (like a catalogue) of final designs. Prospective SNUG owners can pick and choose the SNUG option that suits them and their backyard. Keep your eyes peeled for the Defign magazine profile later in 2018.

The winners of the PrefabNZ SNUG competition will be assessed by Auckland Council to provide a pre-consent approval on the structure, significantly streamlining the consent process.

A panel of judges will choose the finalists and we are inviting you to vote for your favourite in the People's Choice award.
