Need more space? Read this before you move house

“This is the best decision we’ve made in ten years and it now means we’re no longer looking to move house.”

With a full house and even fuller schedule, Matt’s family were desperate for more space.

“There are six of us —  two adults and four kids between 10-19 years plus a beloved canine.  The Cabana has changed our way of life so much and for less than the cost of a new car. It’s also added value to our home ” – Matt

By adding a Melwood Cabana to the backyard, they were able to get more space in just a few weeks, and improve the value of their current property! (And all for less than the cost of Stamp Duty on a new house!)

Pooch-approved. Matt’s cabana is the Verandah No.19, measuring 7.2m x 2.6m.

Multipurpose Space the whole family can enjoy

The valuable space provided by the Garden Room is loved by Matt’s whole family, as it can be used in so many different ways.

“We use it as a home office, art studio, teaching space, retreat and most important of all – an anchor point for a hammock. “

“We’re not in each other’s way anymore”

“As I’m writing this, our son is on the rug next to me reading a book about volcanoes, with the dog asleep next to him. I’m looking through the window next to my desk, my wife is in the hammock and our youngest son is chasing his older brother around the yard. We’re not in each other’s way anymore because this space is so versatile and inviting.”

Space for the whole family to relax.

Quick, Easy & Cost-Effective Home Improvement

Matt found the whole Melwood process quick, easy and stress-free. He has even convinced friends to purchase a cabana instead of a pool when improving their homes. This is one home improvement that will pay off if they ever sell the home, as when it comes to real estate; not every home buyer wants a pool, but they all want more space.

“We have friends who were considering an in-ground pool; we persuaded them to get a Cabana instead because it costs less to build (with zero stress too), it costs almost nothing to maintain and is useful for so many things all year ’round. Our Cabana took less than a day for Melwood to build and it’s now insulated and air-conditioned, which makes it even cosier throughout the year. “

Cozy, comfortable & sturdy

Matt says “Everything about building a Cabana in our backyard has been a bonus”

“Last Christmas a massive hailstorm hit in our suburb and around 75% of houses were badly damaged. Our car was nearly written off and we had to replace part of our roof, an awning and a shed. The Cabana was fine — totally fine —  not even one dent on something that took around six hours to build! We love it!”
