Backyard Cabins And Granny Flats Built In 2018

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.

We added Colorbond steel on rear wall for built-in wardrobes not compromising on the room space. The cabin was professionally painted inside and out, still a few finishes to completion. Owners are very happy with their new building. I bet lots of beautiful art pieces will be made in this new addition. – said Murray Fleming, the builder at Canberra Outdoor Structures.

This cabin features double glazing on all windows and doors. Laminated timber construction, tilt and turn windows – European standards all over. It’s made for a draft-free and comfortable work space. “It would be hard to find many houses of such quality as this craft room in Canberra.” – said Murray with a smile.

If you cannot find a floor plan or a building design from our standard range of timber cabins that suits  your needs, contact your nearest builder to discuss.

All the best in choosing a new addition to your lifestyle!

“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.

Backyard cabins have evolved from no-frills sheds to classy studios while stylish granny flats have become small versions of real homes. The Madeira would be a perfect accommodation for your out-of-town guests.

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.

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.
