A multipurpose cabin Skyros 19 is located just outside of Armidale. The studio will have multiple uses: as a student and teenage accommodation, also as a party room. The client is also an artist, and she wants to use it for her art studio as well.
In this particular Skyros, there is installed under-floor insulation, as well as insulation and sarking in the ceiling. The other morning, we had a minus 8 degrees and we visited the site internally with no heating. It was quite comfortable, according to Martin.
“We incorporated a deck on this particular Skyros and the deck actually extends to the front of the building, and also goes around the side of the building. And the clients would like an outside bathroom, shower, toilet built on the side, which we will be doing shortly” – said Martin.
The newly added building is located about 10-15 meters from the main house and about 15-20 meters from the swimming pool. The Skyros cabin completed beautifully the outdoor area.
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.
