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.

Backyard Cabin New England Guyra Milling Office outside

New Office for Guyra Milling

Corsica cabin has been recently built to locally owned and operated Guyra Milling as their new Office. Guyra Milling is a stock-feed company based in the New England town of Guyra near Armidale. They are a very busy mill all the year round especially at the moment producing high quality cattle feed along with other animal feeds such as poultry. The prolonged drought and high demand for supplementary feed for cattle means the plant is working at near full capacity.

“Their new mill office looks right at home among the silos and elevators. The Corsica model of YZY Kit Homes cabins range is one of our most versatile and popular cabins” – said Project Manager and installer Martin Chaseling at New England Building Recyclers.

Our authorised supplier and builder New England Building Recyclers was commissioned to build their new office to handle incoming grain deliveries and outgoing sales of finished product . It is now completed with fitted out with NBN, internal phone lines, computer monitoring of the mill and air conditioning. The additional two windows that you can see were built by us using spare timber in the YZY kit to match supplied windows – they are fixed and mainly designed to allow better visibility in and around the plant. Very large trucks are coming in and out of the weighbridge area of the plant adjacent to the new office.

“Such a great job. Can’t wait to get some work done inside this little beauty” – commented Guyra Milling on New England Recyclers FB post.
