The state government plans to purchase transportable homes and deploy them in regions where there is a shortage of social housing, such as the Murray and Mallee.
Jacqui and I bought a small transportable as our first home. It was trucked here to Riverglades "wilderness" from Carey Gully. Eventually it became too small for our family of 4, so we sold it. The current owners have created a shady vegetated site. Memories!
We - a family of 5 - lived in a modular (at the time we called them 'transportables) for a year in Darwin when we went there after Cyclone Tracy. It was classed as a 2 bedroom but also had a 'storage room' that fitted a single bed if it touched the walls on 3 sides. It had no laundry so my automatic washing machine stood outside on dirt and attached to the garden tap. I had to sit on it when it was spinning or it wobbled around too much. It was luxury after living in a caravan for several months.
