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.
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.
“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.
An exciting annual event The Home and Garden Show Bowral is coming up this Saturday and Sunday, 9-10 September 2017 and Scandinavian timber studios will be presented by Round About The House, Hayters Timber and Paving, our authorized distributor for Southern Highlands region. Southern Highlanders love our cabins for their quality features and Scandinavian look, so come down for a great day out and have a chat with Daniel about our sustainable backyard cabins, studios and granny flats. Our stand will be in the Home Improvement Zone, just in front of the General Stage as pointed on the Map below.
For the recent Canberra Home Show we built our Cyprus just in 4 days. Every day was documented – filmed and photographed. And now we can show what is the process of building a granny flat to all our followers and readers. We hope you will find it handy for you to see what would it be like the process on your site while we manage all the building project. Also, for anyone thinking of building a granny flat or holiday accommodation themselves, this will help to understand the process.
What an amazing time we had at Canberra Home Show last week firstly, building the Cyprus and then showcasing it over the weekend. Cyprus 1 bedroom granny flat was built and fully furnished just for the show by Queanbeyan based Canberra Outdoor Structures – quite a lot of effort just for a 3-day event but, oh boy, it was worth it. Granny flat Cyprus was wowed by the builders and also by show visitors and everyone who saw it. Scandinavian engineered and energy efficient buildings have never failed to impress the world.

Many visitors looking for an extra room learned that YZY backyard cabins recently displayed by Canberra Outdoor Structures at the 2 shows 2 weekends in a row are much better option than building an extension to their existing house.
“Cost per square meter to build an extension to the existing house range between $2,500 – 3,000 and to build an outbuilding like YZY backyard cabin cost only $1,500 – 1,600” – said Murray Fleming, the owner and the licensed builder building quality projects in and around Canberra for over 25 years.
Two YZY backyard studios displayed at the Home Show, 2014 in Adelaide Showground left no one indifferent. Both exhibitors and visitors were flocking at the display of the backyard cabins appreciating the innovative concept and design as it is for Australia although well-known Scandinavian structures around the World.
