The building has a 4 m x 5 m main room with a 2.7 m by 1.8 m bathroom. Bathroom was added and built from a conventional construction with Colorbond steel cladding all around.  Steel cladding extended to the rear northern wall of the building allows for the buit-in wardrobe.

Our [Canberra Outdoor Structures] quote was half the price compared to other granny flat builders and speed of installation was important. Now young family has a comfortable space to accommodate parents coming down from Sydney to look after their child – said Murray Fleming, the builder of this beautiful project.

Young professionals, owners of the building undoubtedly have a taste and talent for home design. They chose two-tone color scheme for both exterior and interior of the studio. This makes the building consistent throughout. White walls contrasting with deep dark toned window trims made their new building fresh, modern and elegant. Inside of the building is light and airy with abundance of natural light and white walls and ceiling. Bathroom floors were tiled with dark tiles and again contrasted with white subway tiles on the walls. Owners chose trendy black shower mixer and vanity taps to complete the stylish new room in their backyard.

What an amazing project!

Laminated timber vs Solid timber log homes

YZY Granny flats are made of glued laminated timber (LGL), also called Glulam. LGL timber has many advantages over the solid lumber and can also be more expensive than traditional timber. While smaller timber cabins would not justify the cost of laminated timber, larger buildings are worth considering the benefits of LGL. After all, the inside is what matters most in quality of the building.

“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).
