Too Hot Outside!

The beauty about the Backyard Room is it can be used for just about anything. Now that summer is on it’s way our clients have opted for a pool house to kick back in when it’s too hot to play outside. This size is between a BYR1 and a BYR2 also includes a bathroom.

“To Pod” As office spaces, living quarters or hobby studios, small outdoor rooms offer extra space for work and play.

Angela Tufvesson from Green Magazine writes
In a nod to our increasing crowded cities and evolving residential trends, a steady number of small detached rooms are popping up in Australian yards.
These small prefabricated spaces are contracted independent of the main house, fast tracking living and working solutions for eldery grandparents seeking extra family support, Gen Y’s still living at home and home based workers lacking a dedicated work space. They are also popular with householders requiring a guest room, hobby studio, man cave or simply a private haven to escape day to day pressures. The best bit is there portable and affordable.
Demand for small garden rooms is growing, says architect Bill McCorkell, director of Backyard Room. “People are looking for alternatives for home offices  or teenage retreats, basically an extra space for the backyard . The highest demand currently is for home offices – people who have leased offices off-site and want their office to be part of the house. Granny Flats are also a big growth area – it’s really good quality design that still give you a good sense of space.
