There’s no doubt the past 18 months were challenging at times as the global pandemic continued to disrupt the way we work and live.

Sicilia Panorama 30 bedroom

Sicilia 1 bedroom on display at HIA Home Show, Sydney

Our Sicilia Panorama 30 was built and displayed at HIA Home Show in Sydney from Friday to Sunday, 13-15 March 2020. The Home Show was held in the new International Convention Centre (ICC) Sydney located in Darling Harbour. People could come to touch and feel our most popular Sicilia model and meet our builders’ team servicing Sydney and around within a 300 km radius.

Watch Sicilia Panorama 30 building displayed at the show, listen to what people said about it and meet our team building in Sydney-Central Coast-The Hunter.

We asked visitors, what was their initial impression and what they thought after they learned more details about the building. Top 5 benefits stood out people praising the looks of the building, quality of materials, customisable options, speed of installation and the price.

Feedback from Home Show visitors

“I just love all of it – it’s light airy, it has clean lines, really I love everything about it”

“The floor plan is very well laid out, really practical, good value for money, quickly built. I would 100% recommend it for everyday living.”

“Simple to build, certainly at the right price, the right size, not too big not too small, it’ll be perfect for our teenage kids, keep them close but get them out of the house”

“What I liked about it is that it’s inviting, the look of it to me is more like a home”

The looks of the building

Carol Bartlett, our builder’s sales manager, thought that the most often heard reaction from the people entering the building was how spacious and beautiful it feels inside. People thought the range of models to be very modern, not looking like ‘old fashioned granny flats’.

“The great majority of people have a block that is 450-550m² or maybe 700m² that is a standard block. People want something that will fit comfortably on their block. And the fact that they can have a kitchenette and a bathroom in something that is only 30m² was really pleasing to learn.” – said Carol.

Quality of materials

Home show visitors loved the quality of our buildings. People were impressed with energy-efficient German double glazed doors and windows. Many commented that it is rarely seen standard even in Australian homes. Also, naturally insulated solid and LGL timber laminated walls of the building give that comfort, inside air quality and are healthy to live in. It is something you have to experience.

Customizable options

Another big thing that people said they were so happy with that, we can customize the designs to suit what they require. It is not just set designs and set prices. Our clients can pick and choose any component of the project. Whether it is decking, flooring or kitchen and bathroom options, nothing is set in stone. Any design can be painted in the colours to suit the house. This way tieing the new building nicely within the existing property.

Speed of installation

Our team of builders built, fitted and staged Sicilia Panorama 30 display in 3 days. That is the time it takes to build a 1 bedroom unit on an actual site up to the lockup stage.

Price point

“And I guess the last and final thing is the price point. I would have to say that 99% of people I’ve spoken to this weekend have all said they cannot believe the price that they are so economical. When I tell them this one is only AU$75,700 most people think that it is the kit price. When I say it includes plumbing and electrical and site costs on the flat block, they cannot believe it. They are very impressed with our price point. So, I think we’ve done a pretty good job, we ticked all the boxes.” – said Carol.

“It has been a wonderfully successful event. We’ve had at least 800 people a day through our new Sicilia Panorama 30 model. We were fortunate for the building to arrive on time from Europe and be able to set it up over a 2 day period. The feedback has been absolutely wonderful and we’re looking forward to many happy prospective customers out of the show. It’s been wonderful to be part of it.” – said Martin Boerner, co-owner of the building company.

Projects built in 2019

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.
