This corner garden house is the perfect solution for smaller backyards, just tuck it away in a corner and enjoy a spacious, light filled home away from home in the garden.
The front windows are almost full length and let in plenty of sun, making it the ideal spot to work, create or just relax. Double doors give easy access and mean you can open the space right up when the weather is good.
Crafted from kiln dried Nordic spruce, the chalet cut 28mm thick logs offer increased protection against the elements, while the tongue and groove floor and roof construction makes for a precise, quality finish.
With comprehensive instructions, assembly is easier than you might expect, while the house is delivered untreated and unfinished, so you can choose the stain or colour that fits best with your location.
The 5 Year Manufacturer Warranty means you know it’s going to be a standout feature or your garden for many years to come.

This cabin has a floor area under 30m², this means it is exempt from the consent process when added to your property as a structure for ancillary use. Visit building.govt.nz/new-building-consent-exemptions/ for more information.
A good foundation is the key to guaranteeing the longevity and quality of your cabin. Only a completely level, rectangular foundation and bearers will ensure problem-free installation of the cabin.
The floor must be a minimum of 50mm off the ground, preferably more. The underside of the floorboards and the joists should be painted thoroughly and care taken to ensure enough airflow under the house. We recommend using Malthoid DPC between joists and the ground.
Your chosen site must be levelled and compacted to minimise ‘settling’. We recommend using strip or spot foundations, concrete foundations or pavers or a cast concrete bed.
If unsure consult with, or have the foundation prepared by a specialist.

Great extra room . Quality materials and looks professionally built even though I know nothing about building. Hardest part was laying the shingles
The best studio ever!!

I purchased this beautiful little studio and could not assemble it my self, but Trade Tested came to my rescue with the name of the company who can help. I absolutely love this little cabin and have had the water connection completed, just waiting for the power to be done now. Thank you very much Trade Tested, l can paint to my hearts content now.

Not quite finished construction ... got it to this point in two days. Instructions were a little too sparse but with a massive team effort we got there! I love how it sits in the corner of my garden and it really does add something very special and a great spare room!
Worth the effort.

This little studio was the hardest thing l have ever tackled, not being very good at doing jigsaws. But Trade tested came through and advised me that there is a company call Kitset Assembly that is based in Auckland, however has people all over NZ who can come and assemble the studio for you. Living in rural Southland that was the answer for me. Love my studio and have it plumbed and wired, all that is required is the bed and l would never have to leave. Gets all day sun and tons of light for me to paint. Thank you Trade Tested.

it's a beauty. it really needed a membrane to go under the roof tiles and a few extra bolts and info for constructing the roof but apart from that it really is a beauty thanks
A great addition to the neighborhood.

Very happy with my new summerhouse office. As others have noted it required a lot of effort and some thought as the instructions were pretty generic but I managed to do the whole job on my own. Assembling the walls was great fun. A lot of people asked about it and all love it - I should have taken on the agency . . . and well done Trade Tested!

We love the finished product. We did have help from a clever friend as it was a little tricky to assemble but worth it.
