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.

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, 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.”

Carly and Ben’s Garden Cottage for Guests

Canberra Outdoor Structures recently built a garden cottage for Carly and Ben Drysdale’s family in Conder. Initially, the cabin was meant to be built as a sleepout for guests, but in the process young family found out they were expecting a second daughter and would have run out of rooms inside their house!

“Carly had a very clear idea of what she wanted the cabin to look like and she designed and styled it beautifully” – said Murray Fleming, the builder. “We had the custom project modified to the client’s taste. Also, the new building had not to obstruct the views of the Lanyon Valley visible from the main house. So, we had Crete cabin prolonged with the additional room for the bathroom.”

The talented owner was inspired by older style homes with the historical feel. “I managed to find vintage doors online and they were freighted from Melbourne, these brought some extra charm.” – said Carly.

“I wanted to create something cozy but bright and airy – said Carly. “When I painted the inside stark white, I was a little worried it was too much, but once it was decorated, it was the perfect canvas. Our guests love it, and so do we!”

Murray and his team were so accommodating and happy to personalise areas for us. These include a bigger deck which steps down using spotted gum, a structural frame and moulding for our doors and the bathroom addition.” – said Carly.

We asked Carly why she chose YZY Kit Homes. “I love the exposed timber, the natural knots and joins and the ceiling beams.”- she said. “The hinged windows and gold fittings are gorgeous and suit the overall style I was trying to achieve.”
