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. Please see our 'consent information' button below for more information.

Construction Points:

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.

The photos of the Melanie 2.8 cabin show Windows and doors with glazing beads (colonial) and with ought. Q is , is this an option selection at purchase?
You get both options with the cabin. The glass is single pane, you just add the trim over it if that's the look you want.

Great Xtra room

Great project that I put together by myself at 66yrs old. Looks really good. Could do with a few more instructions but got it together without too many problems. Great value.

Love my studio/sewing room

Excellent product. A friend built it for me. Goes together like a big jig saw. Nothing missing and almost nothing left over. Completed the day before cyclone Gabriel and no problems at all. Would definitely recommend this product

Great cabin/garden house

I brought the kitset last year, and its amazing, everyone that comes home loves it and asks where its from. well built, and looks so nice. I recommend this.

It looks absolutely wonderful when finally erected.

We hired builders and it cost as much as the cottage, to have it built including a concrete foundation and path.

Tata Hawkes Bay
Yes a beauty.

Truely good looking. I wish the timber came treated. Untreated timber posed a couple of issues. Had to be covered properly from the elements. Also shed has to be painted after building, means it cannot go very close to the fences. Had to leave half a metre of dead space on two sides.

Happy Critic Wellington
Love the finished product

Takes a bit to put together and I would recommend that you have a bit of handyman experience and common sense. Instructions are a bit vague. Water tight and a lovely addition to the back yard.

Melanie Corner Garden House

I bought this garden house as an art studio as I recently purchased a smaller house and needed my space. It was delivered in February but I didn't build it until early July. It sat neatly stacked in my garage. The building went together like a dream I have to say. It is very well made. It is exactly what I wanted. However. As I didn't go through the the entire kit piece by piece, when I was well into the build I realized that 4 pieces were incorrect, i.e the opposite angle so in order to finish the build I had to fabricate these bits from scrap. Fortunately I have enough woodworking experience to have pulled this off. Overall I am very please with the house and would recommend it but would also recommend checking all the parts before you start.
