Estate Plan

Off-the-grid housing

MAXXLIVING homes come in different sizes and styles. The three basic models are called M, L and XL, referring to the interior width and length of homes. The design consists of a basic number of segments. You can add more segments to further extend your home. This way you are able to change the length of your home, depending on your personal situation.

MAXXLIVING homes all have solar panels as a standard, so you are totally independent. The homes provide comfort, durability, energy efficiency and safety. They are insulated against heat, cold and noise according to the latest standards to ensure a healthy indoor climate and low energy costs. The double volume living room has a glass front that reaches all the way to the top which gives a very spacious feel. The first floor divides the living area in two levels to optimise the surface of the home.

Made of timber

Made of timber

The homes are made using prefabricated modular timber segments for speed of building and the low CO² impact of building with wood. These segments are produced in factory and assembled on site. These ‘sandwich-elements’ are constructed using a wooden framework which is filled with a thermal insulation between the outer and inner coverings. The segments are mounted together into one solid structure and are supported by a steel and concrete foundation. Then finally, the external walls and roofs are cladded using low maintenance durable Colorbond sheeting.

Wood is a viable solution for affordable housing for the following reasons:

  1. Superior thermal performance (low electrical consumption)

  2. Fast construction method (can keep up with high delivery demands)

  3. Factory controlled production (huge savings on post build repair costs)

  4. Fire safety (peace of mind)

  5. Durability (houses will last many decades)

  6. High quality homes (restoring dignity and pride to homes owners)

  7. Sustainability (a low carbon footprint material is used that is good for the environment and that will not run out in years to come)

Remarkable design

The interior as well as the exterior can be personalised to your taste and situation. You can choose between a number of designer's styles and option packages to configure your home with extra conveniency and luxury.


There are many upgrades available, such as upgrades for the garden and landscaping, extra entertainment options. We also provide indoor upgrades, such as stone worktops in the kitchen, extra storage, privacy glass in the main bedroom, skylight which is a glass unit for extra day light, and many more.
