Quality Crafted Backyard Studios, Made in Australia

Proudly Australian-made, Greenspan’s modular buildings are designed and manufactured right here in Sydney, regardless of whether you’re building a small home office, or a multifunctional timber barn. Our commitment to local craftsmanship ensures that every backyard studio kit we produce meets the highest standards of quality, precision, and craftsmanship that our country is known for. When you choose Greenspan, you are supporting Australian jobs and an Australian run family business. 

Studios That Withstand the Australian Weather

You will benefit from superior construction that is built to withstand the unique Australian climate.

This commitment to durability provides you with a backyard studio that is both robust and reliable, providing a long-lasting, secure space for your creative or work endeavours.

At Greenspan, sustainability is at the core of everything we do. Our backyard studios are constructed using eco-friendly materials and methods, ensuring minimal environmental impact. Our modular construction technique reduces waste and maximises efficiency, making it a greener alternative to traditional building methods. We use sustainably sourced renewable timber framing in our backyard studio kits in Australia, where the plantations we source from are committed to planting a new tree for every one harvested.
