We Know


The spaces we live in matter. They can make our lives easier, healthier, better or more enjoyable. Pencarrow Cabins are built with the highest quality materials and are made to last. Because every living space – temporary or permanent – should be warm, dry and comfortable. But most of all, affordable.


Pencarrow Cabins

We’re a locally owned Wellington business on a mission to make small living an affordable and quality alternative to renovating, building or moving. Our New Zealand made portable cabins are built with the very best materials, extra comfortable and able to go almost anywhere. A Pencarrow Cabin is a smart solution to getting extra space at your place and a stylish addition to any property.

Vision & Mission

Everyone deserves a warm, dry, comfortable place to live. But that’s not always easy or affordable. Many of us are faced with the need for extra space to work, live or play – a place for you and your family to spread out to, work in, retreat to or just stay for a while. We believe where there’s a will there’s a way. So we started Pencarrow Cabins to give people an affordable way to create healthy, happy living spaces that don’t compromise on quality or style.


A background working in social housing here in New Zealand and in the United Kingdom led us to ask ourselves “Surely there’s a way to do things differently? To respond to people’s changing needs for housing in a way that’s faster, less stressful, more flexible, and most importantly cheaper.” There was. The solution was offering quality accommodation that was portable, affordable and comfortable. That’s Pencarrow Cabins.
