Opportunity for builders to help provide for families hit by COVID-19
Residential cabins have taken off following the COVID-19 pandemic and YZY Kit Homes says it presents an opportunity for builders to provide for families affected by the pandemic.
Adding an attractive renovation alternative which is easy-to-sell and straight forward, residential cabins have seen an increased demand according to YZY Kit Homes director Lina Urbona.
“As a direct result of the pandemic this year, families are looking for quicker and inexpensive ways to add to their home, to provide for family members working from home or living at home longer,” Line explains.
Since April when the pandemic took off, sales figures saw a sharp increase compared to the previous year according to Lina with some areas seeing triple the sales on the previous year.
“According to anecdotal evidence from our builders, clients were required by their employment to socially isolate but found it difficult to find a quiet place to work from home. This year, it has become common for companies to give their staff work from home options; during the lockdown, it was mandatory,” Lina says.
“In addition, some people tragically lost their job in the crisis so decided to take the plunge and start out on their own. Creating and managing a new business from their kitchen table may be poetic to reflect back in later years, but sometimes is just not practical right now. Kids needing that same space for their homework and spouses in the kitchen preparing meals just aren’t that conducive to working quietly on spreadsheets. This is when these courageous entrepreneurs decided to make innovative use of additional unused lawn outside.”
Some building companies that work directly with these new installations speak very highly of them.
NSW-based builder Martin Chaseling says that the working from home restrictions mean a lot of people are converting living spaces into working spaces and it’s not always ideal: “The solution for many of our customers is to consider the YZY Kit homes’ studio range as an economical and cost-effective means of achieving a dedicated workspace while working from home.”
YZY Kit Homes offers a selection of several quality cabins varying in price and size, either studios or with one or two bedrooms. Authorsied building companies in multiple areas offer complete cabling, plumbing, gas, carpets and flooring.
