Affordable, Moveable Housing For Hawaiian Farmers, Ranchers, & Pioneers.
We have worked hard to bring you excellent quality at reasonable prices for over thirty years. Each home can assemble in as little a one day and give you years of service with minimal maintenance. You can customize these buildings as a home, ohana house, office or utility building. Add stairs & landings, add a deck, paint them any color you like, add a carport. It is up to you. What you get is a very sturdy, pre wired, pre plumbed and attractive home which can put you indoors in less time than it takes to even talk about a custom build.
About Our Company
Affordable Hawaiian Homes is a branch of Castleblock, a leader in building technology in Hawaii since 1993, the year we built the first ICF (insulated concrete form) home in Hawaii. In 1999, we did the first SIP (structural insulated panel) home in Hawaii on Molokai, a system we still specialize in. Constantly looking for ways to provide high quality and affordability, in 2016 we began importing prefabricated, factory-made buildings from China. Our new folding container home is our latest offering.
Quick Assembly Home
From ordering to installation can take as little as two weeks.
50-Year Service Life
A sturdy home with a half a century life span and minimal maintenance.
Structures that can be relocated with limited cost and worry.
Known as a “mother-in-law house” in other places, these small homes are fully self-supporting.
Moveable Assets are structures that can be relocated with limited cost and worry. This can be a critical factor in a home or building when living in environments that have the potential to experience natural disasters such as hurricanes, floods, and volcanic eruptions. Our houses can be folded and moved to a safe location if or when such calamities occur. You don’t need to lose your home or business building, saving you immeasurable heartache and money.
Q: What are Moveable Assets?
A: Moveable Assets are structures that can be relocated with limited cost and worry.
Q: Does moveable mean cheap and flimsy?
A: Our buildings are not cheap or flimsy. They have a level 3 fire rating (half an hour with no damage), can withstand winds up to 124 miles/hr., and have a level 2 anti-seismic rating.
Q: Does moveable mean uninsurable?
A: No, these buildings are considered “permanent” once they are erected and after they are relocated.

A: No, these buildings have steel framing and insulated walls, as well as concrete floors. They are well anchored to the foundation they sit on.
Ohana Houses, common in the islands, are freestanding, self-contained small homes near a primary residence. They are permittable up to 600 square feet. Our buildings are 429 square feet and can be adapted to have carports, lanais, or landings added to them.
Q: What is an Ohana House?
A: Ohana means “family” in Hawai’ian. Also known as a “mother-in-law house” in other places, these small homes are fully self-supporting. They have bathrooms with sinks and showers, kitchens with counters and sinks, and a bedroom with a closet. Additional cabinets can be installed.
Q: Are Ohana houses connected to the main house?
A: No, these houses have their own power, (can be solar), wiring (no extension cords to another structure), and plumbing, all to American standards.
Q: Are Ohana houses the same as tiny homes?
A: Tiny homes, now very popular, come in all styles and shapes. Our ohana houses could be called “tiny homes.”
Q: Can only family live in an Ohana house?
A: No, anyone can live in an Ohana house with the permission of the owner. Some people rent their Ohana.
