Our new Madeira granny flat will be built on site at our Ourimbah Display Village onto a prepared base. The build will take four days in total, with the live event held on day 1 when the structure goes up. Here’s a rundown of what each day of the build will involve:

Day 1 (Live event): The walls, windows and doors will be constructed.
Day 2: The roof will be installed.
Day 3–4: Building finished to lockup stage and ready for internal fit-outs.

What’s on at the event

On the day you will:

  • watch our build team working just as they would in your own backyard
  • witness the ease, speed and efficiency of the Scandanavian building system
  • learn how the precision-cut modular components fit together quickly and easily. 

You can touch and feel the quality of solid construction and European windows, and will learn about the sustainability of our buildings, the reduction of waste, and how much CO2 is ‘removed’ from the atmosphere through the use of timber.

Projects Built In 2019

The year 2019 was a prolific one, it saw the construction of new Scandinavian cabins, granny flats and houses spread across Australia. YZY Kit Homes were used in varying ways. The larger units were utilized as homes, independent living spaces specially designed for teenagers, guest houses or bed and breakfasts. The smaller studio-type cabins were utilized as art studios, home offices, music rooms, pool houses and sheds.

Space is the primary driving force for the initiation of construction. Then the client gets in contact with a builder to develop potential ideas. Simultaneously, the builder focuses on the options and restrictions associated with the site. Following a few rounds of discussion, working in unison the best possible outcome is achieved. The results speak for themselves. Here are some of the cabins which came up in 2019.

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.

In the 6.6 m wide back wall there are 3 Built-in wardrobes installed to organize neatly all craft materials. Lots of windows and French doors bring the natural light in to the room.

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!
