Byron Bay Cabins and Granny Flats

The minimalist design of our range of Byron Bay Cabins has everything needed to feel luxurious while treading lightly on the earth.

The sleek eco-cabin designs includes 30 – 60 square meters of floor space with an additional 30 square meters of deck (optional). The One Bedroom Cabin floor layout features a spacious bedroom with floor to ceiling built-in wardrobes. The bedroom opens to an open plan living/dining area that flows to a generous sized kitchen. The bathroom has ample space for a bath or spa, and a separate composting toilet (also available as a flushing toilet). A skillion split-level roof with adjustable skylights allows natural winter light into living spaces.

‘Our cabin designs incorporate high-tech passive solar features with sleek clean lines and beautiful natural elements, perfect for North Coast lifestyles’

- Tony Hill

 

We wanted a building that would blend in with our rainforest surroundings. Tony invited us to look through one of his projects under construction and we loved how his design brings the outdoors inside.  The unique elevations, open space and extensive glazing make the place feel just like a large home.  The inclusion of sophisticated finishing's provided an element of luxury typically only found in high end builds. Tony is a highly passionate hands-on builder and was very adaptable to any of our ideas. A chat one afternoon was a sketch the next day and then within days we had a draft design with costing and constructability assessment. The whole crew were so easy to get along a with and we all felt like we were a part of their team.

 

We set out to build a granny flat and ended up with a home amongst the trees. Mum couldn't be happier, she feels like queen of the castle, and that's what all mums deserve. Tony and his team made this possible, trust them to build your dream.
