How this family added space to their home in just weeks

Most people need more space and don’t know how they can achieve it.

This has become a major problem particularly in and around Sydney, where the ever-inflating property market means that many families cannot afford to move to a bigger home.

The Nichols* family from Sydney’s Lower North Shore added this stunning outdoor room to their property, dramatically increasing their usable space in just a matter of weeks.

Easycraft wall lining panels have been used to great effect in this relaxing Backyard Cabana

“Their Melwood Cabana No.18 measures a luxurious 5.4m x 3.2m and has been styled to match their house perfectly.”

Melwood’s prefab portable structures make it quick and easy to add affordable space to your property.

Whether it’s your garage, rumpus, hallways or even study that need de-junking, there’s usually plenty of spare room in your house that is not being used to its full potential and emptying it into a backyard shed, cubby house or cabana is the quickest and easiest way to recover that space!

“claim back space inside your house by moving items to the backyard.”

A Melwood Cabana makes the perfect backyard office!

So how can you do it? 

Start by downloading the product guide which contains all styles, dimensions, pricing and options.

This is great for getting an idea of your preferred design and size before visiting the Display Centre to view them in person.

Then visit Melwood’s Display Centre to see the designs for yourself and get an idea of the size and quality of build.

“The design this family chose was the Verandah Design No.18 with no verandah. They then added Cedar Upgrade, double doors with sidelights, and custom double doors.”

When you are ready to order, you can simply Request a Site Appointment for your property.

One of Melwood’s Site Estimators can come to the property to discuss options, check measurements and assess the site for you.

Fast-forward a few short weeks while your order is manufactured in Melwood’s Sydney factory, and it’s time for the setup!

The trained teams from Melwood deliver and setup the structure (to lock up stage) in just one day!**

“At the end of the day, this family had a secure, lockable building, ready to decorate.”


Now for the fun part!

We recommend you paint the doors immediately and the rest of the outside of your new Melwood structure within a week. This is to seal and protect the wood.

Once that has been completed, its time to tackle the inside!

“The Nichols’ family have stained the tongue-and-groove ply floor that their Melwood structure came with, and added a gorgeous navy and white rug. This is an excellent idea, as it saves the time and expense of professional flooring, and can easily be a DIY project.”

If you are adding lights or electrical, you’ll want to arrange this before you add the wall lining.

For the walls, they have used Interior Wall Lining Panels. These are a fast, neat and easy alternative to traditional plaster.

Then move your items/furniture in and your new space is ready to enjoy!
