Saltbox 20+ sqm

The saltbox frame is a classic design, popular in North American colonial days, when a symmetrical gable frame later had a lean-to built at the rear; eventually the lean-to was incorporated in the new build frame design & resembled the kitchen ‘saltbox’ storage container of the age.

Multiple bays can be added to this frame, which would make an ideal pool house, studio with garage, character-rental.

Bendigo 20 – 40 sqm

Way back in Bendigo, miners came into town with kitset cabin frames.  Cheap and quick to assemble, the miners could then get on with what they had come to town to do.

Byron Backyard’s Bendigo miner’s cottage is available in two building formats: Heavy timber frame, and pre-nailed stud wall cassettes.  The latter remains true to the ‘cheap & quick’, the former is for the aficionado who wants something more substantial in form.

The heavy timber frame Bendigo miner’s cottage (40 sqm) is a four-bent structure with a central bay, hosting the front & rear doorway plus access alcove to bed & bath.  The stud wall cassette Bendigo is available in 20 & 40 sqm versions.
