“The owners absolutely love the cabin, they said it absolutely ticks all the boxes. The kids love it because they have their own space away from mom and dad sometimes. Teenagers can make plenty of noise and they are not in the lounge room.”- said Shayne Price, the builder at Custom Creations.

Custom Creations worked closely with Karen and Micheal and supplied additional windows and lighting to enable her to work comfortably. The wonderful furnishings and paint scheme were all done by Karen.

“We are very happy with both the cabin and the professional way you carried out your job.  Thank you.” – that was a pleasant email received from the happy owners of the cabin.

This custom 16 m² (4m x 4m) cabin is just a bit smaller cabin in size than our standard Corsica model which is 20 m² (5m x 4m).

Backyard cabins have evolved from no-frills sheds to classy studios while stylish granny flats have become small versions of real homes. The Madeira would be a perfect accommodation for your out-of-town guests. This granny flat comes in 1 and 2 bedroom sizes with living area of less than 60m² to conform to council requirements for a 2nd dwelling.

1 bedroom Madeira has a total area of 90m² including a 43m² indoor living space and a roomy 47m² veranda. Madeira 2 bedrooms has two floor plans to choose from. Floor plan version 1 Madeira has a total area of 96m² with the good sized 36.3m² veranda. And there is version 2 Madeira 2 bedrooms with a total size of 89m² including 29.3m² outdoor space.

Madeira design features a full kitchen, a dining area, a spacious lounge, a bathroom and 1 bedroom or 2 bedrooms located on sides of the building for the maximum privacy. On the left is an equally expansive covered veranda for outdoor living. The veranda can be fitted with cutouts in the floor and ceiling to accommodate greenery.

All YZY timber studios and flats can be customized to reflect your unique design preferences. With so many available options, every cabin can be one of a kind. Take a paint color of the building. Darker tones can blend the building in with the surrounds and brighter colors can make it stand out with all its glory. With a simple cut outs in the floor and the ceilings of the veranda, Madeira can give you a luxurious and stylish outdoor space. Also, screens are one of an architectural expression to address the harsh Australian climate and balance the privacy and aesthetics.

The Madeira can expand your home’s living space or create extra bedrooms. It can provide accommodations for visitors and still have enough room left over for entertaining additional guests. If you happen to have a granny, and you want to keep her close, the Madeira would be a cozy place for her to live.

YZY prefabricated Scandinavian backyard cabins and granny flats are made of hardy Nordic Pine Spruce from FSC-certified forests. With natural timber and double-glazing, these timber studios are solid and built to last. Granny flats and backyard cabins come with premium inclusions and flexible options like extra windows and doors and customized decks.

If you like the Madeira but would prefer something smaller, our Sicilia timber studio is similar but half as large. It measures 20m² (5m x 4m), and you can add a deck for a more spacious design.
