Simple and affordable bedroom addition, Coolum Beach QLD

Owner Builder Neil was looking to add another bedroom to his house in Coolum beach. But there was already an existing decking area built where another room was most likely to go. So, he decided to build a cabin so that it shares the same deck creating a flow-on effect. And now it looks absolutely stunning flowing nicely from the main house through the spacious veranda. Who could tell it was a recent addition? It definitely looks like that was in the original plans of the house.

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, builder owner sealed Corsica exterior with 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.”

Soundproof Music studio in Armidale

This soundproof music room was recently built in Armidale for an ex-musician Brian ‘Lanky’ Moore. Brian is a drummer and a vocalist, ex-band member of “Constable, Green and Moore”, “Kelsey”, “Shane” and “The Chooks”. Reaching retirement, Brian Moore decided to fulfil a lifetime dream and build a music studio.

Initially, Brian was looking to build an extension to his existing house. “Early quotes on a house extension to do this were prohibitive and I conceded it would never happen”- said Brian.

One lucky day, driving past a display cabin in Armidale, Brian spotted the Corsica exhibition studio. And then his dream suddenly was reignited.

“From quote to completion the process was seamless and professional, reasonably priced (about half original quote) and with no DA required, erected within a week!”- said Brian.

“We were guided and advised by Martin and his crew, and I now have my dream studio, and soundproofed, much to our neighbours’ delight” – Brian Moore.

Soundproofing Brian’s music studio

“Brian’s Corsica studio project was designed around its use as a music room in a suburban setting. Our aim was to achieve a level of soundproofing so that high volume music could be played without attracting complaints from close neighbours.” – said Martin Chaseling, the project manager.

To achieve this, the studio was set very low to the ground to minimise sound transmission through the floor. In addition, builders had to use high-density batts in both the floor and ceiling cavities. “The batts used are similar to normal thermal batts but are of a far higher density” – explains Martin.

Music studio owner Brian chose a good quality carpet with soundproofing underfelt as well as heavyweight curtains. Both of these factors also assist in reducing external sound transmission.

“All of the design features of his Corsica music room contribute to allowing Brian and his mates for a full expression of their music without upsetting the neighbours. Mission accomplished!” – said Martin.
