Telehealth office space in Epping

Telehealth office space in Epping

Telehealth office space was recently built for Shona Stewart running her Stewart Psychology business from the comfort of her own home in Epping.

“Highly recommend YZY Kit Homes. After looking at multiple backyard cabins for my telehealth office space I couldn’t find a product that compared both in terms of quality and cost-effectiveness. Now it is in place I wish the house had the same standard of doors and windows. The builder and his team were exceptionally professional and the cabin went up so smoothly. The biggest problem I have is that I don’t want to leave the office now!”

Testimonial from YZY Kit Homes Facebook page

Having operated her successful psychology practise for a number of years, Shona Stewart decided it was time to move the business to a predominantly telehealth focus. Needing the right space for work led to her installing an office Corsica Panorama cabin in her backyard.

Multipurpose garden studio Skyros in Armidale

Multipurpose room built in Armidale

A multipurpose cabin Skyros 19 is located just outside of Armidale. The studio will have multiple uses: as a student and teenage accommodation, also as a party room. The client is also an artist, and she wants to use it for her art studio as well.

Watch the interview with Martin Chaseling, the builder and take a virtual walk through the Skyros 19.

“Skyros 19 dark stained looks dramatic and it looks very at home in its landscape” – said Martin Chaseling, the builder servicing New England area.

It’s probably something that you can get away within a cooler climate like Armidale, but a dark stain is generally not recommended for outside application. However, unarguably it looks spectacular!

“The clients are very happy with the cabin and that it features the double glazing on all doors and windows” – said Martin.

Project details

In this particular Skyros, there is installed under-floor insulation, as well as insulation and sarking in the ceiling. The other morning, we had a minus 8 degrees and we visited the site internally with no heating. It was quite comfortable, according to Martin.

“We incorporated a deck on this particular Skyros and the deck actually extends to the front of the building, and also goes around the side of the building. And the clients would like an outside bathroom, shower, toilet built on the side, which we will be doing shortly” – said Martin.

The newly added building is located about 10-15 meters from the main house and about 15-20 meters from the swimming pool. The Skyros cabin completed beautifully the outdoor area.

10 day Council Approval Program VIC

10-day Council Approval Program in Victoria

The Victorian Government introduced a Secondary Dwelling Pilot Program to process ‘granny-flat or garden studio’ applications within 10 days. Exciting news for the Victorians as the state has the most stringent laws in Australia for building a secondary dwelling.

Check our granny flats and cabins and contact our authorized dealers and builders in Victoria.

What is a secondary dwelling?

A secondary dwelling can be defined as a dwelling which is either attached or detached from an already existing dwelling on the same plot of land.

Plan Melbourne 2017-2050, recognizes the demand to promote housing choice and to cater to the ever-growing needs of the household. In such a scenario, secondary dwellings provide:

  • An affordable yet wide selection of housing alternatives
  • Offering members of the extended family to live in close proximity
  • Option for couples to scale down
  • Added option of rental for members of the community

Secondary dwelling pilot program

Four different councils would conduct a trial run for the Secondary Dwelling Code from August 2020 till March 2021. These four councils are Greater Bendigo, Murrindindi, Kingston and Moreland councils.
