John’s House in the Snowy Mountains

The Cyprus cabin was recently built for John in the Snowy Mountains as a house. John happily shared his feedback and kindly let us photograph and film his newly built and styled home.

“It serves me well, I’m very comfortable in my new home.  Anybody who has come to my new home was very very impressed!

And I was amazed about how well the building insulated is. I only turned the Air conditioner on once or twice during summer even on we had 5 days straight of over 40 degrees.” – said John, the owner of the Cyprus home.

John was also impressed with the after sales service and spoke highly about the builder Murray Fleming (Canberra Outdoor Structures) who managed all building works of Cyprus cabin.

“I had quite a few minor queries, things that I did myself and Canberra Outdoor structures team came in and helped me with things in a timely fashion which impressed me.”– said John.

Interior and exterior colors

Exterior walls of John’s house were stained with Burnt Gum. And let me say it looks stunning with the classy white window architraves. Interior was stained in the clear finish with white painted window frames.

The building has underground power connected from the main house. And the existing house sewer line was used so the stormwater just goes to the existing tanks.

Backyard Cabins and Granny Fats built in 2018

Backyard Cabins And Granny Flats Built In 2018

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!

The building has a 4 m x 5 m main room with a 2.7 m by 1.8 m bathroom. Bathroom was added and built from a conventional construction with Colorbond steel cladding all around.  Steel cladding extended to the rear northern wall of the building allows for the buit-in wardrobe.

Our [Canberra Outdoor Structures] quote was half the price compared to other granny flat builders and speed of installation was important. Now young family has a comfortable space to accommodate parents coming down from Sydney to look after their child – said Murray Fleming, the builder of this beautiful project.

Young professionals, owners of the building undoubtedly have a taste and talent for home design. They chose two-tone color scheme for both exterior and interior of the studio. This makes the building consistent throughout. White walls contrasting with deep dark toned window trims made their new building fresh, modern and elegant. Inside of the building is light and airy with abundance of natural light and white walls and ceiling. Bathroom floors were tiled with dark tiles and again contrasted with white subway tiles on the walls. Owners chose trendy black shower mixer and vanity taps to complete the stylish new room in their backyard.

What an amazing project!
