GRAND SOJOURNER              Starting price $110,000

To ‘sojourn’ means to rest, abide, dwell or stay. It’s about having a break from the journey, to be refreshed. There is an element of temporariness to it which we feel is captured by the relocatable nature of our homes. You can stop awhile, & move on in your own time, taking your resting place with you.

*The Grand is our most versatile model.

The 3 bed or multi-purpose rooms (1 dowstairs & 2 lofts), lend themselves to an array of possibilities. Downstairs can be master bedroom, kids bedroom (with space for bunks/desks/cupboards, study etc. Likewise, both lofts can be utilised as bedrooms, study, additional living/entertainment room/study/storage. There is head height for a couch or to sit at a desk. We can include customised cupboards/shelves, purpose built beds or desks to make the Grand Sojourner your small but highly functional and luxurious home or guest space.

You’ve also got ample storage space.
