Inside Andrew’s Cosy Country Cabin

“It’s one of the ideal places you could live.”

“It’s set amongst gum trees, overlooking paddocks, and there’s also a view of the city of Adelaide.”

 

For Andrew and Esther, adding a Cedarspan™ to their property was all about family.

“It was built as an extra dwelling for a family member who wants to live independently.”

“We have a rural property in the hills area. So we wanted to choose something compatible with the natural surrounds.”

 

For 45 years, Cedarspan™ has been building barns, cabins, and cottages all around Australia.

Andrew recalls the day his prefab cabin arrived by truck from New South Wales to South Australia.

“Delivery was terrific. It all went smoothly.”

“My sons, who are carpenters, built it. Even someone without carpentry skills can put it up because it’s modular.”

“From start to finish, the team were really helpful. Nothing was too much trouble. We had all the information we needed whenever we wanted it.”

In 2012, the family built a 30C40 at the rear of their dwelling on their rural acreage.

“It’s 60 metres away.”

“It’s peace of mind to have a family member close.”

Completing the internal fit-out, Andrew and Esther have created a warm and inviting home.

“It’s classy. We took time to make it pleasant.”

 

Nine years on, Andrew says the Cedarspan™ cabin is a highlight of the property.

“I highly recommend it because it’s compatible with the environment. It’s also a very flexible design. It’s compatible with any terrain.”

“It’s beautiful. It will add value to your property.”

“It’s something a lot of people admire when they come to our property.”
