Our mass timber cabins are sustainable and stylish – they also boast amazing acoustic and soundproofing properties too!
While we often talk about the energy efficient and eco friendly benefits of our mass timber granny flats and cabins, another aspect that our clients love is the soundproofing properties. And this was certainly the case for our clients in Oxenford on the Gold Coast, who found our custom backyard cabin the perfect choice for their music studio and pool room, which also functions as a home office, allowing for a truly flexible space.
Customised to suit
With our cabins offering complete flexibility in design, our clients were able to customise their new backyard music studio to perfectly suit their needs.
Spanning 5.5m x 11m, the cabin is 60 m2 in size, creating an expansive space, with plenty of room for an assortment of instruments.
The exposed beams and raked ceiling create a spacious look and feel, while the larger size of this custom cabin allows ample floor space for not only the musical equipment, but also for a pool table, couches and television for chilling out between jam sessions. Additionally, the cabin can also function as a home office during business hours, making it a true multipurpose space!
As a purpose-built music studio, soundproofing properties were a must, and our custom cabin delivered.
Constructed from 80mm thick mass timber walls, and boasting double glazed windows which come as standard in our kits, the home was tested inside and out, and was found to deliver a 30–40% reduction in noise. With the owner choosing to add sound blankets to the roof and sound barriers to the walls, they can relax and enjoy the sessions knowing they are not disturbing the neighbours.
Let the good times roll
With the cabin complete, all that’s left now is to add the finishing touches and enjoy!
As our YZY building partner – Classic Kit Homes – explains, this unique project is one to remember.
We can’t wait for this one to be completely furnished. It is just waiting for the pool table, as the owner is re-creating an old English pub. Hence the fabulous exposed beams!
