RAAF Houses

In 2014 Northern Transportables was successful in securing 300 houses from the RAAF base in Darwin. Originally these buildings were to be demolished by Defence, but due to public outcry the houses were saved from demolition and are now available for sale and can be installed throughout the territory. We are proud to be a part of saving these great old tropical homes from destruction.

Northern Transportables as a qualified builder and the sole agent for the sale of these houses can deliver and stump the buildings for you up to certificate of occupancy stage. We have numerous houses currently in our holding yard and many more still ready to be shifted off the base. Buildings can only be viewed in our holding yard and if you would like to make an appointment to view a selection of houses then please feel free to contact our sales staff to make an appointment.

A sample of these houses both in situ and after delivery is displayed below. Take the opportunity now to make yourself a great deal.
