Madeira - modern design

Live 1-day Building Event

Have you ever wondered how our kit homes are built on site in just a few days?

We held a live 1-day building event for you to see our speedy building system live in action!

We were building our flagship granny flat, the stylish and versatile Madeira, at our Display Village in Ourimbah – and to celebrate we were hosting a live 1-day event where people could watch the build unfold before their eyes!

For an owner-builder, licensed builder, architect, journalist or anyone considering building a YZY Kit Home, the live build was a great opportunity to learn about the steps and processes involved in the construction of our homes and to see how fast they are built firsthand. If you missed the event, read on, there is a photographic and video recap of the day.

No permit required for granny flats and studios Tasmania

‘No permit required’ approvals for granny flats and studios, Tasmania

  • Streamlined ‘no permit required’ approvals to construct ancillary dwellings, such as granny flats or self-contained studios.
  • The first 250 new ancillary dwellings will receive $10,000.

The Tasmanian Government will develop a broader housing policy framework that looks at the full array of housing market issues across the public and private sector to drive solutions, in line with PESRAC’s recommendations.

Although over the past year Tasmania had been building houses at a rate not seen in nearly a decade, Minister for Housing Roger Jaensch said more needs to be done.

In the media release ‘Comprehensive package to increase housing supply statewide’ Tasmanian Housing Minister Roger Jaensch said that the government will be providing a streamlined ‘no permit required’ approvals pathway for landowners to construct ancillary dwellings, such as granny flats or self-contained studios, on their existing properties.

“And to help meet the demand for rental properties, the first 250 new ancillary dwellings that are made available for long-term rental for more than two years will receive $10,000.” – Minister Jaensch said.
