20m² Norfolk Timber Cabin
The “Norfolk” cabin kit is definitely our most popular cabins as it lends itself to a variety of uses.
Some of our clients use this cabin kit as a sunroom, teenage retreat, music studio, granny flat, pool room, swimming pool cabana, beach shack, site office, man cave, tool shed or sauna room and used the additional space just for storage. The “Norfolk” is also great for a teenage retreat as there is enough room for living but also has the additional room for storage. This cabin does not come with an inluded deck.
This cabin comes as a kit only. Kitchen, bathroom, electrical, plumbing and other items are not included in the kit price.
NSW council regulations now allow cabins up to and including 20m2 in your back yard without council approval. Conditions apply. Click here to see legislation
Usage Ideas for your Timber Cabin
This size is common to be used as a home office for 1 or more people. Plenty of room for several desks and a meeting table with a small kitchenette and bathroom.
This is a broad catergory. Visiting relatives from out of town, expanding families needing more room, teenage retreat, divorcee accomodation (it happens), even Air BnB rentals or local traveling workers accomodation. Use for your own needs or rent it out as an income source.
A great space for a pool table, or a big lounge and TV, so you can kick back and enjoy family and friends in a safe, casual and entertaining environment.
Enjoy the ability to potter in your favourite hobbies in your own dedicated space. Art Studio’s, Pottery, Sewing, Beauty Rooms, Massage. It makes a great ‘chill out’ space to read a book, Tutor Music or even Home Schooling. Relax and Recharge with some soft music and a cuppa tea to have a break from the day to day grind. Plenty of clients say their cabin is their favourite “Happy Place” away from the day to day grind.
Nothing beats a dedicated space to work on your favourite hobbies. If your current shed is full of family “items” and doesn’t look like changing anytime soon, enjoy the new dedicated workspace and great size for your gardening passion or computer repairs, or whatever you like doing. Its really up to you.

Sub Floor Base Kits
|Our standard base kit is included in the price, But Note: Base kits can vary in price due to site specifications. Cabin heights off the ground can add additional post length. If soil tests are required, some hole diameters and depths may vary and some site specific engineering may be required depending on your cabin usage. We will advise if any variation in price is required, but it is not common that we need to add some to the cabin kit price.|
Additional Windows and Doors
Additional Windows and Doors can be added into one of our standard designs. We would advise the price once we have discussed the options available. Adding or removing items from a standard kit may result in a significantly longer delivery time, as the additions or deletions need to be catered for at the factory as a one off build.
