More pictures will be posted as the work progresses. Any interested buyers may contact me via email or text. I am not interested in making any changes to suit anyone. Cabins are only built with my ideas. The dimensions meet the necessary requirements for removal. The building meets the current framing codes. It is l exceptionally strong and I would expect whoever buys it to be sure to meet the necessary footings to meet the standard required for the area that it will be taken.I imagine within a month to have the interior taking shape to allow for more pictures to be posted. the ceiling inside is old corrugated iron and it steps up 150mm, 500mm in from each wall. These cabins are all unique and extremely time consuming. However that is what sets them apart form the rest and that is what I like about them. They are quaint, intriguing and functional. To my mind the most important thing about any dwelling is temperature, so I try to ensure that they are easily heated and easily ventilated. They are well insulated, walls, ceiling and floor.
Since closing the coffee shop to general public I have been building cabins for sale for removal. My first one sold 2 weeks after I began building it. Guests who had stayed here came and saw it and paid a deposit immediately.
It was 5.4 metres x 2.7 metres inside dimensions. It was fully insulated and lined. It had a double roof which allows for the timber trusses to be exposed along with making the whole building extra strong. Above the trusses the iron is screwed length-ways on every down corrugation. Then roof battens, insulation and sisalation. This allows for the trusses top be exposed without temperature transfer or dew to come inside.The floor was 100 mm cold room paneling sheeted over with yellow-tongue flooring and loose laid floor covering.The frame is 100×50 hoop pine from the old Wyreema milk factory. It had leadlight sash windows, 15 panel glass door with coloured glass side panel.It had 2 old French mirror doors on the wardrobe, bedside shelves, wood heater with an oven and hot plate. The wood box beside the heater was able to be filled from the outside. It had a galvanized bench top with stainless sink. The table swings out from under the bench.The drawer and cupboard handles were polished copper. A small sliding window in the heater recess and a casement between robe and heater recess are both screened. Louvres were fitted high up above kitchen sink and an old wooden ladder swings down in front of the window with the TV mounted on it. The kitchen cupboard on the right is hinged to the wall and swings out with shelves at the rear.The 3 holes on left are wine racks and 4 th one is a speaker for the 12 volt radio.
Above the robe was another horizontal door for blankets and below the doors are 2 deep drawers. The old pot on the shelf has a LED down light inside of it.The splash back is 200×300 white tiles. On the floor under the bedside shelf there is screened lift up 200×200 door for cool air. It gave me great pleasure building it for two wonderful people who are now very close and highly thought of friends. It has since had a bathroom and large deck fitted after it was stumped in new location. It is fully braced and tie -down rods fitted. When it was jacked 1/2 inch one end the middle came up 1/4 inch. There is not one amount of flex. Every wall was braced with structural ply.
