We also have install teams that can construct the cabin kit for you.

Timber Cabin Kits include all the parts and hardware except for the foundation materials. The subfloor base kit is best supplied locally to save you dollars. (eg: from Bunnings). Don’t worry, we supply you the standard list of materials required. It may need slight adjustment for uneven ground, but we are here to help you get it right. We have videos showing how to build the base kit or our install team will do it for you.
All cabins are supplied with everything for the cabin to be build to ‘Lock-Up Stage’. Lock up means it does not include electrical, plumbing, painting, kitchen or bathroom. If you require these – we recommend you hire local trades to help with the fitout. 20m2 kits take around 4 to 5 days for two people to construct including subfloor footings and if four people are on the job the 20m2 kit can be done in around a day once footings are in and stable.
While there may be slightly cheaper versions of similar looking cabin kits on the market, you can be sure that they are made with thinner or cheaper timber. Our kits are made from plantation grown Nordic Spruce Pine that can stand the harshness of the Australian climate very well. All of our cabin kits are backed by a 5 year material warranty. Some cheaper, competitor cabins have less structural material in the roof beams and a lot less material in base kit. We know that our cabin kits will pass any normal engineering requirements so we put the extra timbers or increased size to comply with Australian Standards at a very affordable price. All of our kits will stand up to N3 conditions and for a little extra can be made to suit C2 cyclone conditions.
All of our under 20m2 cabin kit web pages have the kit and construction prices clearly written and a detailed list of inclusions that come with the kit. We have a very open policy so that you know the full price on everything upfront when ordering your cabin kit.
