(Little) Rooms for everything
Newcastle builder Adam Savage is helping homeowners who need more space –
whether it’s for a home office, a prep kitchen, as guest accommodation or the perfect retreat for watching the races.
Little Rooms are tiny homes with a difference. In a sleek, architectural design and built with fire retardant high-quality materials, they don’t require DA approval, can be installed quickly, come in different sizes, and offer excellent value for money.
“It’s a room, not a shed, with a few touches, ours has a real luxe feel to it,” says Paul, a happy Little Room customer.
“I am using it as a home office during the week. On weekends it’s a retreat for watching the races with friends. That’s why we call it The Birdcage.
“At first, I wasn’t even sure whether this would be possible. But Adam came out, had a look and made it all happen.”
Adam explains, “That’s one of the advantages of our Little Rooms. We can install them pretty much in any space, even on steep slopes or in backyards with limited access. We install the components on site and approach our customers’ land with a light touch. No cranes needed.”
Paul couldn’t be happier with the result: “We love supporting local and were amazed by the quality we got for the price. We did a lot of research and Little Rooms had the best package.”
Todd, another one of Adam’s clients is using his Little Room as a prep kitchen for his brand-new beef jerky business. He had been looking at various options including refitting a shipping container, but nothing met his requirements, which included cool room insulation.
“But with Little Rooms, cool room insulation is already built into the polystyrene insulated walls,” he explains.
“We put in vinyl flooring to satisfy food safety requirements. Adam really made it a complete package, nothing was ever too much.”
With a sloping block and limited space, the location was challenging too and Todd was worried the structure might take away sunlight from his home or his neighbour’s property: “But I needn’t have worried. My Little Room fits in seamlessly, whereas a shipping container might have looked quite jarring.”
Kieran is using a Little Room as an additional accommodation option for his guests at Mufasa, a wilderness retreat in Booral near Stroud.
Sleek and long lasting
“We have safari tents on timber structures but they are open to the weather with termites an issue too. So they won’t last longer than 20 years.
“I was looking at cabins with a lifespan of 60 – 70 years when I came across Little Rooms and really liked the simple, but aesthetically pleasing design that fits in perfectly with the natural bushland. “Adam came here and was just so easy to work with. We’ve built the Little Room on steel posts and that setup will give me the longevity I was after at a price that I could well afford.
“I wanted my guests to wake up to magnificent views and the large windows in the Little Room are perfect for that. “We also added a custom, larger deck with enough space for a barbecue,” Kieran says, who is so happy with his Little Room, he is planning on adding several more.
