When two rustic cabins become a forever home 😍

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.
