Bedroom in John's House in The Snowy Mountains

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.

LGL laminated timber, glulam

Laminated timber vs Solid timber log homes

YZY Granny flats are made of glued laminated timber (LGL), also called Glulam. LGL timber has many advantages over the solid lumber and can also be more expensive than traditional timber.

After all, the inside is what matters most in quality of the building.
