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.

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.

The large verandah creates the perfect space for a cuppa or two. 

A great escape from the hustle & bustle of city life.

 

The Holiday Home features premium Western Red Cedar Cladding, stained with Cedarshield and a Colorbond Roof in 'Woodland Grey'

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.
