Backyard Cabins And Granny Flats Built In 2018

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.

Pool house in backyard Southern Highlands

Jennifer and Scott’s Pool House

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 added Colorbond steel on rear wall for built-in wardrobes not compromising on the room space. The cabin was professionally painted inside and out, still a few finishes to completion. Owners are very happy with their new building. I bet lots of beautiful art pieces will be made in this new addition. – said Murray Fleming, the builder at Canberra Outdoor Structures.

This cabin features double glazing on all windows and doors. Laminated timber construction, tilt and turn windows – European standards all over. It’s made for a draft-free and comfortable work space. “It would be hard to find many houses of such quality as this craft room in Canberra.” – said Murray with a smile.

If you cannot find a floor plan or a building design from our standard range of timber cabins that suits  your needs, contact your nearest builder to discuss.

All the best in choosing a new addition to your lifestyle!
