ECO STRETCH HOUSE
luxury glampers from FREEFORM®
The Eco Stretch House is one system with multiple configurations
Our latest luxury glamping tent offering from FREEFORM® Stretch Tents is something to get excited about.
Conceived as temporary accommodation for eco-sensitive environments, FREEFORM® set out to design and manufacture a simple timber-frame and canvas structure that could be easily installed and relocated or removed without damaging sensitive environments. Just the thing if you’re considering joining the glamping revolution!
The Eco Stretch House™ is a super flexible option for glamping destinations.
fast & simple build
Simplicity is the key to this ingenious design and what makes the Eco Stretch House™ so easy to install and remove. Constructed on site from pre-fabricated timber beams and posts of standard dimensions and sizes – each unit is modular in nature which means you can scale your build requirement up or down.
- Universally-sized timber beams an posts lock together to assemble the frame
- A ‘fast-build’ joining system means pre-fabricated modular elements simply lock together to assemble the frame.
- Only a small team with only basic training is required to construct the unit. This keeps installation costs to an absolute minimum.
- Costly and lengthy planning approvals are not necessary as the unit is considered a temporary structure.
- Get to market faster and realise a much quicker return on your investment.
Most units can be installed in just one day by a small team with basic training.
Remote destination? No problem! Smaller units can be transported on a flatbed trailer or small utility truck. Each unit packs down to a manageable crate and can be neatly stored until required.
One of this design’s most useful features are the custom-engineered self-levelling feet. This means units can be constructed on many different terrains including sand, snow and uneven ground. Each self-levelling ‘foot’ can be individually raised or lowered to level the unit. This gives you the freedom to easily turn vacant land into an income-generating asset, with the added flexibility of being able to relocate it without leaving unsightly foundation scars on the environment.
Other advantages of self-levelling feet are:
- Elevated units are less prone to weathering.
- Plumbing and electrical services are more accessible.
- Elevated units are warmer in colder climates.
- Snakes and bugs are also less likely to gain access.
An Eco Stretch House™ offers you a fast-to-market, income-generating asset that will not compromise the environment.
The adaptable design features of the FREEFORM® Eco Stretch House™ gives you the freedom to offer glamping in your own style.
The timber-frame structure accommodates a variety of different wall and ceiling panel materials. These panels can be easily swapped out to suit your own style of accommodation. Think safari-style luxury canvas tent or a snug ski cabin with cladded wooden walls and a hard roof. Let in nature with full panel glass windows or create a beach shack vibe with painted corrugated walls. Reed or bamboo wall panels are also an option.
CHOOSE YOUR WALL & CEILING PANEL MATERIAL
Wall and ceiling panels are available in both soft canvas options or a variety of hard wall options.
Ripstop Canvas wall panels can be solid or feature zipped window and door inserts.
Hard walls can be solid wood, glass, aluminium or cladded panels. Standard-sized aluminium windows and sliding doors panels are also available.
The FREEFORM® Eco Stretch House™ is the most flexible luxury glamper available! You can scale the size, configure the floor plan, and select exterior finishes to suit your requirements.
A FREEFORM® Eco Stretch House™ can configured to meet your needs. The modular nature of the structure means multiple floor plans are possible.*
The internal space can be re-configured by clipping internal walls to different points on the frame.
Decks can be placed on any side. Stairs can be clipped on at any access point.
Bedrooms, bathrooms and/or decks can be added after-build, simply by plugging into the existing structure.
The modular design features makes for a highly configurable unit.
take your guests off-the-grid
The glamping revolution is definitely about taking the path less travelled and discovering new destinations and experiences. With the FREEFORM® Eco Stretch House™, it’s now possible to turn your remote destination into a luxury glamping location – even where no ablution or power services exist. These units cater for three basic scenarios:
There is water and electricity conveniently located
In this case all that is required is a small DB board with a small 12 Volt transformer and a water connection shut-off valve. The hot water system is a compact electric system located beneath the basin. The shower includes a pumped sump to pump wastewater into a suitable tank or soak-away.
There is water but no electricity
In this case a solar system with a battery, a solar panel and charge controller is required along with a digital gas geyser and gas bottle. The shower includes a pumped sump to pump wastewater into to a suitable tank or soak-away.
There is neither water nor electricity
In this case a solar powered system is required which would include a battery, a solar panel, a charge controller plus a digital gas geyser with gas bottle and a 12 Volt 11.6 L/pm pump. The shower includes a pumped sump to pump wastewater into to a suitable tank or soak-away. A 1000 L rain water tank supplies water to the unit. Depending on solar conditions (shade and latitude) an 80 Watt solar panel (or larger) and a 105 Amp/hr high cycle battery (or more) can produce around 6.5 amps per hour for around 6 hours per day – pushing approximately 40 Amp/hrs back into the battery each sunny day – providing sufficient energy to power the pumps and LED lighting.

Wall Panel Options
Soft fabric walls and ceilings can be solid or windowed. The fabric slides into a Keder rail track attached to the wooden frame, creating a weather-tight seal and a flat tensioned wall. These walls can be unzipped on three sides and rolled up entirely to open out to the surroundings. The tri-layer window system consisting of an external Ripstop canvas ‘blind’, a fixed mosquito net and a clear internal roll- up PVC window provides both privacy and protection from insects and the weather respectively.
Hard panel alternatives include solid wood, glass, aluminium or cladded panels. Standard-sized aluminium windows and sliding doors panels are also available. Custom panels of the same dimension can be installed easily and cost-efficiently.

Any custom fixture or fitting meeting the service requirements can be fitted on site by your own supplier to meet your level of luxury.
Coal-Fired Hot Tubs
Imagine enjoying a hot tub on your private deck overlooking an incredible view! We offer wood-fired hot tubs made from ultra-light, but very sturdy material and filled with self-expanding foam. These hot tubs do not need an electrical outlet or installation. The water is heated via an aluminum wood- fired stove that fits neatly into a corner and is well shielded to prevent injuries.
