Peter’s Bushland Accommodation

“The cabin looked great as it aged, was an aesthetically pleasing ‘kit’ and sat well in the landscape.”

After buying his first Cedarspan back in the 90s, Peter loved how easy the process was, and his cabin blended with the Australian landscape as it aged. 

Hence when it came to his next cabin, Greenspan was a natural choice for Peter.

“It’s a 10 out of 10 from me. Everyone who sees it loves it…” 

Situated on 7965 hectares and surrounded by national park, Peter’s dream was to create bushland accommodation overlooking the mountain ranges.

As a non-builder with just a few burly companions to help him install, Peter found the Cedarspan process easy.

“This time I went back because the product is well made and the support is fantastic. A non-builder with a few burly companions can erect it. The paperwork made DA fairly easy and the adaptability – in my case, the bushfire rating – was very simple.” Peter explains.

“Planning was easy despite bushfire issues. I highly commend the product but also the people, as John was simply awesome through the whole process. Even well into the build with helpful advice and great knowledge to help me complete it.”

This time around, Peter chose the Cedarspan 30C50 with an added Verandah across the front, to maximise the mountain view.

He personalised his design with Merbau decking and sustainable hardwood cladding, an aesthetically pleasing way to accommodate the local bushfire requirements. 

Coming in at just shy of 51sqm, Peter has been chipping away at the interior fitout when he is out at the property.

With the open plan living area, kitchen bedroom & bathroom now completed, Peter just has a few finishing touches left to complete his beautiful space.

Despite having had incredibly harsh weather including wild storms, torrential rain and crazy wind squalls since installing, Peter’s cabin is solid.

“It is absolutely solid – even through storms, rain and wind,” he tells us.

“It’s a 10 out of 10 from me. Everyone who sees it loves it, even my family who are the hardest to impress!” 


Peter’s Cedarspan is a 30C50 measuring 5.6m x 9m with the addition of a full-length verandah with merbau decking.

It features an Eco-hardwood cladding upgrade and aluminium windows in “White” and Colorbond® roofing in “Surfmist”. 

All measurements are approximate.
