Backyard Cabin Rules NSW

This is a very important issue when deciding to buy a backyard cabin. People often give up on the idea of the backyard cabins as they put off by the idea of going through their local council. However, the process is far easier than you imagine. What is great is we build the to the same standards whether approval is sought prior to cabin kits galore building or not so if later down the track you seek retrospective approval everything should meet relevant codes.

We have all the processes and documents you need to get your little piece of heaven through council in a timely manor. BUT wait, depending where you live, you could be even luckier.

A lot of states have exempt development standards. We have a model to suit each state that is built to maximise the allowable space. For example, in NSW you are allowed to build a cabana/ cabin up to 20sqm and under 3m in height without council approval. This is determined at a state level so not a local one.

And guess what – we have different styles in stock that have an internal area of 19.98m and 2.9m in height

Generally it comes down to what you want to use the cabin for, if we build it as and exempt development and then later down the track you want to turn your backyard cabin into a seperate dwelling, you will need to apply for a change of use.

Each council is different. Generally you can apply for a bathroom or laundry to be added to a cabin or shed, like the glorious dunny!! If you want to add a kitchenette it will generally trigger a full DA as they see that as a permanent seperate dwelling or granny flat

choosing a backyard cabin supplier

Obviously this is the main step in buying a cabin for your garden.

  1. Cartoonist or cabin installer – since this has become probably the most affordable way to increase internal space on someones property there has been an increase of new to market suppliers with limited experience. A easy way to tell is if they use rendered images or cartoons instead of actual builds.
  2. Reviews – in this day and age the best way to decide if the supplier is right for you is reviews, what has other customers experiences been. Also check they are real customers who have actually worked with the company reviewing and not overseas reviews.
  3. Are they installing the backyard cabin or outsourcing it to someone who installs only a couple per year. We have found from our customers when researching there is a backyard cabin kit price (generally more then our installed price) and then a local agent price and installation. Check what licences the supplier has. Our installers are all licensed carpenters and build these cabins day in day out all over Australia.
  4. Pricing – would you like a window or a door with that?! Yes there is actually companies that don’t include the basics for your garden retreat, they don’t even come lined internally (add $3k ). Our cabins are solid timber logs that don’t require internal lining. Using our style of cabins can be the most affordable way to get that extra space in your backyard.
