Simple and affordable bedroom addition, Coolum Beach QLD

Owner-builder Neil wanted to add a bedroom to his home, and our backyard cabin proved to be fast, simple, and affordable.

When Neil decided to add guest accommodation to his Coolum Beach home, there was already an existing deck where the room was most likely to go. So, rather than remove it, he opted to build our mass timber backyard cabin alongside the deck, creating a stunning flow-on effect from the main house. Better still, it looks as though it’s always been there!

Searching the Internet, Neil found exactly what he was looking for: a simple-to-build beach-style cabin. After the meeting with the local representative of YZY Kit homes Adrian Fields, Neil was confident Corsica size and style was perfect for his home improvement project.

Neil chose one room Corsica cabin and transformed it into the en-suite bedroom. “Construction of the cabin was very easy” – said the owner of the cabin. Neil had some assistance of a carpenter and had no problems to set it up. “If he needed any advice, Adrian was always there to give us some good backup”- said Neil. “If you follow the instructions carefully, there is absolutely no difficulty to set it up.“

Colours for a flow effect

For the flow effect, the builder owner sealed the Corsica exterior with a Merbau natural water-based stain. As for the interior, he used a natural, clear water-based stain to make the cabin natural, cozy, and light.

“I am very happy with the completed cabin and have had lots of good comments from my friends and family”- said Neil. “I recommend YZY Kit Homes for people looking for a simple and affordable cabin or granny flat addition. And I would also like to thank Adrian for all his help and advice during and after the construction.”
