Backyard Pods began in 2016 with the very first studio pod made from 100% Australian-made Truecore steel framing with Colorbond cladding and Zincalume roof. Since then, backyard studios have become a must-have for many homeowners – even those with the tiniest backyards or small inner-city courtyards. Using a Backyard Pod studio kit with no slab needed, people can have backyard studios installed where access is difficult (eg: no access other than through the house) and on sloping land without major excavations. We can also provide prefab backyard studio buildings, delivered complete where access allows, ready for you to move in, work, hang out, or get creative in almost no time compared to conventional building methods.
How much does it cost for a backyard studio?
How much your backyard studio will cost depends on the size, location, and complexity. A simple studio room with internal lining and electricity is the cheapest. Many people add a powder room, shower, or kitchenette – however, plumbing and sewerage connections will add to the cost quite significantly. Backyard workshops, etc, are usually exempt from approval but all habitable rooms (eg: proper rooms with interior lining, etc) in Australia are subject to some form of approval. No worries, if you like, we can help you get an approved backyard studio room that you can insure and will add definite value to your home as ‘official’ extra space for living, working, or sleeping.
