Backyard Cabins was created in 1990 after Master Builder, Murray Purves, saw a growing demand for detached secondary dwellings in the building/construction Industry.

Backyard Cabins has developed a reputable name and it’s products have provided a welcome solution to family homes and properties in search of that extra space without the excessive costs and time consuming delays of conventional renovations and extensions.

Our stylish and functional designs have been the perfect match for clients in need of a home office, a teenage retreat, extra storage, a spare guest bedroom, a self contained granny-flat, detached studios, pool house, cabana, a weekend country hideaway, and Caravan/Camping ground accommodation.

In Backyard Cabins’ 25+ year history we have supplied and constructed at least 800 Cabins and Cottages to all corners of Australia with notable clients including the National Parks and Wildlife Service.
