Price change notice

Price change notice

Current prices of YZY Kit Homes will last until 15 April 2021 for granny flats range and until 31 May for backyard cabins range and will have to increase from 16 April and 1 June respectively across Trade Price lists. The expected price increase is 5% to be confirmed with the release of the new pricelists prior to a price change.

Whilst cost pressures for both raw materials and shipping (shipping container shortage, new international fees and port charges) continue to impact over the last year, YZY Kit Homes have both absorbed costs and improved efficiencies in order to minimise additional cost pressures on our Authorised dealers/Accredited builders in a tough trading environment during COVID-19. We are now unfortunately forced to pass on a share of increased costs.

Impact on standard cabins

  • For orders placed before 31 May 2021, current prices apply.
  • For orders placed after 1 June 2021, a new price list will apply.

Impact on granny flats

  • For orders placed before 15 April 2021, current prices apply.
  • For orders placed after 16 April 2021, a new price list will apply.

Please be assured YZY Kit Homes have made every effort to keep the increase to a minimum. As usual, YZY Kit Homes will be providing superior quality products and we greatly appreciate your continued support through this time of change.

Please contact your nearest builder for a new price list or information on how this will affect your current building project.

10 day Council Approval Program VIC

10-day Council Approval Program in Victoria

The Victorian Government introduced a Secondary Dwelling Pilot Program to process ‘granny-flat or garden studio’ applications within 10 days. Exciting news for the Victorians as the state has the most stringent laws in Australia for building a secondary dwelling.

Check our granny flats and cabins and contact our authorized dealers and builders in Victoria.

What is a secondary dwelling?

A secondary dwelling can be defined as a dwelling which is either attached or detached from an already existing dwelling on the same plot of land.

Plan Melbourne 2017-2050, recognizes the demand to promote housing choice and to cater to the ever-growing needs of the household. In such a scenario, secondary dwellings provide:

  • An affordable yet wide selection of housing alternatives
  • Offering members of the extended family to live in close proximity
  • Option for couples to scale down
  • Added option of rental for members of the community

Secondary dwelling pilot program

Four different councils would conduct a trial run for the Secondary Dwelling Code from August 2020 till March 2021. These four councils are Greater Bendigo, Murrindindi, Kingston and Moreland councils.
