Backyard Cabins

Backyard Cabins – Sydney & Rural NSW

Backyard Cabins is a popular name given to Granny Flats in Sydney and Rural NSW. Interestingly, they’re are not always built in back yards. They can often be built to the side of a dwelling or even in your front yard. Whether or not this is permitted depends on the layout of your block and your neighbours too. Under the NSW State legislation, a granny flat can be built as far forward as the prevailing distances of the adjoining dwellings.

We are the experts in approving, designing and building backyard cabins throughout Sydney and rural NSW.  Backyard cabins are often mistaken for teenager retreats, studios, home offices and transportable homes. So what’s the difference?

The difference is that backyard cabins are detached secondary dwellings approved under the State Government SEPP legislation. If a detached dwelling has a fully functional kitchen, it is a granny flat or backyard cabin. The other difference is that backyard cabins are self-contained units with their own electricity, sewer  and water supply.
