Nordic-inspired double Cedarspan weekender

The Cedarspan project that turned a small cottage into a Nordic-inspired guest house overlooking the pool, with an idyllic view of the country landscape.

Previously, we covered Maren’s journey in adding another Cedarspan to the one that came with her property in the Southern Highlands, NSW.

Doubling as a pool house, the positioning of the Cedarspans captures breathtaking views of the rolling hills, and is the centrepiece of Maren’s property, offering an exceptional venue for guests.

The combination of the double Cedarspan lends itself to a spacious living area with a kitchenette, boasting abundant natural light, and a large window that flawlessly showcases the scenery, as well as a bedroom with a luxurious bathroom.

Maren painted the Cedarspan™ steel trusses black, enhancing the high-pitched ceiling’s striking appearance.

The original owner purchased a 20C20 Cedarspan high-pitched Verandah, measuring 3.8m x 3.6m with additional windows and Cedar cladding.

Maren and David brought their vision to reality by adding another Cedarspan & joining the two buildings with an Annex.

The design they chose to connect with the existing design was a Cedarspan high-pitched Cabin 20C40, featuring sustainable Cedar weatherboard cladding, elevated floor, and additional windows in “Black” with “Woodland Grey” Colorbond™️ roofing.

They connected the two Cedarspan’s with an enclosed annex, finishing the entry with an iconic red door. Maren was impressed with the speed at which the installation was completed.

When they first put up the bottom part, that was so exciting. We were running around thinking it’s so big, and the next day it was finished.”

Maren and David extended the decking area to connect the two buildings externally and surround the pool, creating the perfect pool house retreat for their guests.

“It was very easy. We ordered it, they gave us a date, and they built it in the time frame.”

The Nordic styling continues through the interiors with black accents and natural timber grains, creating a calm aesthetic, perfect for weekend retreats.

“My mother is living in Germany. She’s been here a few times, and she loves it…Everyone who stays here loves it.

Maren has added a wood heater in her Cedarspan™ cabin, creating a cosy atmosphere & unmatched warmth in the winter months

“It’s comfortable, and it’s always a good temperature in here.”

Maximising the great view at every point, they’ve added an outdoor shower just off the pool.

Since moving to the Highlands, Maren has truly settled into the country life away from the hustle and bustle of the City.

“My daughter is in Sydney. I go quite a bit to see her…Do I miss it? Do I want to live there? Probably not!”
