Transforming a tiny backyard into a breakout retreat

What better way to use a tiny backyard, overshadowed by large apartments behind where nothing will grow?

Patrick and Chris chose to add a Melwood eSpace 1600 to their backyard, and in turn, created an awesome space that they can enjoy with their growing family for many years to come.

“it’s the perfect breakout retreat for our growing family in our compact house!

Patrick and Chris have personalised the eSpace 1600 by removing the porch area and picking up more internal space for their home gym come breakout space.

“We love it! It’s changed how we used our tiny backyard.”

“Building it ourselves was another desirable aspect to the eSpace design and we felt it was relatively easy to achieve considering our amateur abilities.”

The Melwood eSpace 1600 measures 5.4m x 3.2m and features our sustainable ECO-Hardwood Vertical cladding painted to match the windows, doors & roofing. Patrick and Chris opted for “Black” aluminium windows/doors paired with “Nightsky” Colorbond™️ roofing, creating a gorgeous overall Scandi “Black on Black” design aesthetic which is becoming more and more popular.

“your display office on Victoria Road really helped & the service was great so we were Sold.”

Chris and Patrick’s new Melwood has allowed them to utilise the space at the rear of their yard that wasn’t being used, whilst creating some privacy in their courtyard from the overlooking apartments to the north.

“The reason we chose Melwood was that we were looking to add a prefab studio to our backyard,…We did a lot of search & found a few prefab companies but Melwood stood out by location, versatile design & price
