Mobile / Transportable Homes
Comply with The Caravan Act
Fully compliant with The Caravan Act, our transportable buildings are treated as “mobile homes”, with all the advantages – Planning Permission, Building Regulations, etc. – of a caravan but not the drawbacks.
Low running costs
Natural insulation ensures comfort throughout the year plus low running costs. And our transportable homes have an indefinite lifespan with only minimal maintenance, unlike caravans.
From compact cabins to luxurious family homes, our transportable buildings offer comfortable living on a wide range of scales.
The choice is yours: traditional Scandinavian styling, or our exciting British-made contemporary design. Either way, we can easily achieve the space and layout you need in a transportable format.
Comply with Caravan Act
Our mobile/transportable homes comply fully with The Caravan Act, yet have all the quality and durability of our other log buildings. They are exempt from Building Regulations, and are the only mobile homes available in the UK to our high construction standards.
Unlike many park homes, caravans, prefabs, etc., our homes have an indefinite lifespan with only minimal maintenance. Their value generally moves in line with the property market, rather than depreciating rapidly over a few years.
Low running costs
The log’s natural thermal insulation means our homes offer year-round comfort – cool in summer, warm in winter – and low running costs. Beautifully stylish inside, our homes also have a low external visual impact that’s ideal for environmentally sensitive areas.
With up to four bedrooms and two bath/shower rooms – including en suite – our homes meet a wide variety of needs, from private owners to leisure developers. For example, our Mendip and Cambrian models (each approx. 20 x 6.8 m) are ideal for larger families yet still fall within The Caravan Act. Our versatile standard designs are the results of our many years’ experience of meeting our clients’ needs. Our bespoke design service is also available if you have a specific requirement.
Private homes and annexes
Our homes are the ideal replacement for your existing mobile home, or as an annexe. Quickly and cleanly installed, our homes help you make the most of your Certificate of Lawful Development (CLD).
Rural employers, farmers and smallholders
When your employees or family members need comfortable accommodation, our homes are the cost-effective solution. They meet the requirements of NPPF (National Planning Policy Framework) Paragraph 55, and enable you to gain full benefit from your Certificate of Lawful Use to establish a temporary dwelling.
Light, spacious, and perfect for year-round use, our homes are there for you to enjoy in comfort whenever you wish. Or you can benefit from their enhanced letting potential and greater profitability. And they are a solid asset, unlike caravans, etc.
Leisure developers value our quick and simple delivery process, which can be just a few weeks from order to site. Our classic Scandinavian design and construction offers the visibly higher quality that visitors appreciate – and return to.

Most frequently asked questions
Can I live in a Norwegian Log transportable home all year round?
We manufacture all our transportable homes to the very highest Norwegian standards. They will be cosy in winter and cool in summer, and therefore ideal for year-round use.
Can I replace an existing mobile home with a Norwegian Log transportable home?
Generally yes, provided you have the necessary local authority permissions. We normally recommend seeking a Certificate of Lawful Use. Our transportable log homes conform to The Caravan Act, and we build them to the relevant British Standards. We strongly advise that you check with your local Planning Office before proceeding.
Can you deliver a Norwegian Log transportable home to a site with restricted access?
Subject to local authority approval, we can deliver to awkward and/or narrow access sites. We have extensive experience of delivering to difficult sites, and will be able to assemble your building on your site and conform to all criteria under The Caravan Act. Please speak to one of our advisors, and discuss your access with us.
