Christine’s timber shed: “Our Melwood has changed our life!”

Customisable, made to match and durable in all kinds of weather, the widely popular Melwood Mod Design timber shed proves to be a winner when it comes to adding backyard space on narrow lots.


At least, according to Christine from Sydney’s inner west in NSW.

“Our Melwood cabana has changed our life! We live in a small house and simply couldn’t do without it!”

Christine is more than impressed with her Melwood timber shed, which she tells us she has used for multiple purposes such as a guest room, study, outdoor room, and general space to read, listen to music, and relax.

The Melwood Mod 18 measuring 4.8m x3.2m features stained cedar cladding, black window and door architraves and a Colorbond® roof in “Woodland Grey”.

“I love it – a great place to work from home. All our family and friends love it. My niece stays regularly and loves it. My brother visits and it is great to give him his own space!”

More Aussie families are turning to alternative solutions to add space to their homes. This is due to the daunting process of council applications and approvals to extend or renovate. But for Christine, she sought a better way to meet her needs.

“I did a lot of research before deciding on a Melwood. After virtual conversations with Franky and a visit to the Drummoyne showroom, we knew the Mod 18 would work for us. It could be customised to the size we needed for the space we had, it could be constructed as an exempt development and the workmanship and quality of materials was first class.”

Another pain point for customers is finding a suitable solution to fit their yard dimensions without breaking the bank. With blocks varying in size and width, getting a custom builder and designer to construct a wooden shed could end up being an expensive exercise.

Thankfully, it was an entirely different story for Christine. On the contrary, her Melwood was modified to perfectly suit her yard without the need for an architectural designer or builder.

“The design process was very supportive. We were coordinating the cabana design with a larger landscaping design and did quite a bit of to and from between our landscape designer and the Melwood designers. Nothing was a problem and we had confidence that the cabana would fit in well in our overall landscaping design. The design process was easy and the team was just so helpful! The price was also very competitive compared to other similar products.”

Constructed in PreCrafted panels out of the factory, Christine’s beloved wooden shed was easily transported and assembled in a short amount of time without the need for a crane or heavy plant equipment.

When it comes to purchasing a Melwood timber shed, Christine also knows the long-term benefits.

“We had a friend of ours who is also a local real estate agent and he estimates it has added at least $100k in value to our home!”
