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.
Yearly Photo Book “YZY projects 2018” was published and is available to view at any of our authorised backyard cabins builders and suppliers. Below is a video created from the most interesting and beautifully set up cabins published in the Photo Book.
We hope you will enjoy watching it and getting a few ideas for your own building project in the year 2019. Please share it with anyone you know may need a Scandinavian quality building.
Below is a digital version of the Photo book about YZY projects 2018. Scroll down to view the featured projects and use of the backyard cabins and granny flats. You’ll also find the builder who was taking part in designing and building the cabins.
