The Cyprus cabin was recently built for John in the Snowy Mountains as a house. John happily shared his feedback and kindly let us photograph and film his newly built and styled home.
“It serves me well, I’m very comfortable in my new home. Anybody who has come to my new home was very very impressed!
And I was amazed about how well the building insulated is. I only turned the Air conditioner on once or twice during summer even on we had 5 days straight of over 40 degrees.” – said John, the owner of the Cyprus home.
“I had quite a few minor queries, things that I did myself and Canberra Outdoor structures team came in and helped me with things in a timely fashion which impressed me.”– said John.
John has recommended us to several people, so we’ll see more YZY Kit homes in the Snowy Mountains or anywhere else in Australia.
Interior and exterior colors
Exterior walls of John’s house were stained with Burnt Gum. And let me say it looks stunning with the classy white window architraves. Interior was stained in the clear finish with white painted window frames.
The building has underground power connected from the main house. And the existing house sewer line was used so the stormwater just goes to the existing tanks.

Looking back at 2018, it’s been yet another amazing year with many Scandinavian cabins, granny flats and even homes built across Australia. Use of YZY Kit Homes was very diverse. While larger 1 and 2 bedroom buildings were used as a main house, accommodation for guests or B&B, smaller studio-type cabins were mainly used as a teenage studio, a home office, parents retreat, a pool house and a craft room.
The need for more space starts the process. Clients consult with the builder exchanging ideas, builder looks at the site potential and restrictions. After a few discussions, working together teams find the most suitable solution. And the results are amazing, take a look at some of the cabins built in 2018.
Ex display cabin Crete finds its new life and purpose as Jennifer and Scott’s Pool House. Solid timber studio has served as a display cabin at Round about The House yard in Mittagong NSW. With the plans to build a larger cabin, local timber merchants put their display cabin Crete on sale. It just so happened that Scott and Jennifer visited the local timber yard with the idea of building a pool house from scratch.

“We actually went to our local timber yard looking to build a very specific sized pool house, the ‘Crete’ was on display there and just so happened to meet the size we had asked. We love the solid timber feel to the structure and it was very easy to construct.”
So, YZY Kit Homes cabin has found a new home in Southern Highlands beautifully set up in Jennifer and Scott’s backyard.

We asked Scott who’s ideas was to style the studio so beautifully?
“Jennifer, my very talented wife is responsible for styling”- Scott said.
“The pool house has allowed us to enjoy our pool a lot more, even when it is a little too cold to swim, it is nice to relax in and take in the serenity.”
