When two rustic cabins become a forever home 😍

You’re looking at the forever home of a young Australian family. 😍

This classic rural home is made up of two Cedarspan Cabins, which we installed over 10 years ago.

The cabins feature cedar weatherboards, a classic pitched roof & a wide verandah – the perfect space to sit down & gaze out to the surrounding hill and pastures.

 

 

A charming ‘gingerbread house’

 Jackie, who shares the home with her husband and young children, calls it her gingerbread house, and loves the way the aged cedar gives the home so much character (and warmth!). ❤️

If they need more space in the future, Jackies family will be able to extend their cabins. Cedarspan’s modular building system means you can easily add more sections even 10/20 years after originally purchased, and they’ll blend right in. 

 

 

The Cabins 

The home is made up of two Cedarspan cabins; the 30C40 and 30C70.

The cabins measure approximately 5.6m x 7.2m, and 5.6 x 12m, providing over 100m2 internal area. 

Described as ‘deceptive in size’, the home includes a lounge room, dining room, 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a large country-style kitchen.

This holiday home in Kalamunda, Western Australia was built in just 5 days

Buying rural property and escaping the city smog is a dream many Australians have. The rolling hills, fresh air and warm sunshine make the perfect setting for a holiday home.

But there’s one hurdle – building a home on rural properties isn’t easy, and can take months on end.

One Aussie builder overcame this problem by using a prefabricated kit from Cedarspan. He assembled this classic holiday home in just 5 days on a property in Kalamunda, Western Australia.

 

cedarspan cabin constructed in just 5 days | the pefect holiday home or airbnb for rural property

The perfect setting for a rural weekend escape, airbnb or holiday home. 

The large verandah creates the perfect spot to sit and watch the sun rise (or set) with a warm cuppa in hand.

 

Prefabricated in a few weeks, assembled in 5 days.

The cabin was prefabricated in-factory into sections, so once it was delivered to the property, the builder just had to follow the included instructions to put the pre-made pieces together. This took just 5 days, and he’d never done a project like this bef0re.

Cedarspan Cabins are made-to-order, so you can select the size, finishes, options and layout, and really make it your own! 

The cabin is the Cedarspan 30H50 Loft Cabin. It measures 5.6 x 9m, providing enough space for 1-2 bedrooms, a kitchenette, bathroom and living area inside. Also shown are the extended verandah, premium Western Red Cedar cladding and handcrafted cedar windows.

No concrete slab or site levelling required

Another time-saving factor is the raised timber floor system. This means that a concrete slab is not required, saving time and money onsite. It also means no site levelling was required, so the cabin could be installed directly on the sloped property.

 

Want to see inside a Cabin?

We’ve got a few buildings on display at our factory in Girraween, NSW (about a 40 minute drive from the Sydney CBD). It’s amazing to be able to experience them in person. To feel the wood grain, try out the windows and swing open the doors. To step inside and be able to picture what you will create in your airbnb or holiday home cabin.

Appointments essential. Call 1300635966 to book your appointment now.

If you can’t come and visit the displays in person, next best option is to stalk our Instagram (go for it, you’re welcome!), where we share photos, tips and the occasional walkthrough video.

Cedarspan Cabin Kit Holiday Home assembled in 5 days

 

A holiday home built in under a week!

Approximately 6 hours’ drive north of Sydney, in a cozy little corner of New South Wales, you’ll find a fascinating place called Hanging Rock.

This picturesque town is exactly where one Sydney family chose to build their Holiday Home. (in under a week!)

  

 

The Holiday Home was a traditional Cedar Loft Cabin.

After being factory-constructed in panels, the cabin was driven to site and construction began.

Cedarspan’s prefab construction method means that large trucks and cranes are not required, and the piered floor system means no concrete slab is required.

Once the panels arrive onsite, it only takes one week for the entire building to be assembled. 

 

 

With Cedarspan’s Quick Installation, the Building was complete in under a week.

Pitched ceilings create the most beautiful atmosphere inside a home. 💕

You will notice there are no cross braces required inside,  making the room seem more spacious.

This special construction style is unique to Cedarspan, proving popular with Australians over the last 40+ years.

  

Inside, the walls are lined with EasyCraft wall lining - a quick and tidy alternative to traditional plasterboard.

By incorporating natural timbers, white walls and muted colours, the owners have turned this holiday home into a cozy, relaxing retreat.

Beautiful natural patterns of the wooden floor separate the kitchen area from the living area.

This flooring (available with all Cedarspan buildings) has been stained to protect against spills. A quick & easy DIY project.

 

The ownders have added corrugated steel siding to prevent animals and snakes from getting under the home. The piered floor that the home sits on means that no levelling or concrete slabs were required.
