E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.orgGypsy Cabins & Caravans Pty Ltd was started by James Lapham and his partner Samantha Savidge in February 2010. When James wanted to give his oldest son a place to stay on the property he built a small cabin on rails so it could be moved around to suit their needs. Once built, locals passing by couldn't help but call in to get a closer look and began asking James if he could built them a cabin.
One wanted an artist's studio, one needed extra bedrooms and another wanted a hair salon and before long the orders were there and Samantha suggested starting a business building cabins. Seeing how much James used recycled materials in the cabins made it easier to make them affordable and a comfortable alternative to other forms of accommodation. Many clients have already taken up the option of including their own materials into the construction such as antique doors and windows and as fully paid up recyclers, James and Samantha are only too happy to include your treasures into a cabin of your choice.
Since many people have difficulty buying their first home or building, which can be expensive, and lengthy, these cabins are designed to be an affordable alternative perhaps while you build or as a granny flat style extension to an existing house. They have also been used as offices, weekenders on rural blocks and interest has been shown by various holiday and educational centres.
James is from a bricklaying and house building background and is only happy if everything he does is made to last. To that end Gypsy Cabins are constructed like a mini-house which is engineered to withstand multiple moves that a cabin may experience in its lifetime. the cabins are also built to be low maintenance so you have more time for the important things in life. For more information on their construction please see information on this site under "Specifications & Inclusions".
The cabins are constructed at our display village SE Queensland (near forest glen on the PACIFIC HYW ) and are available for viewing on any day by arrangement. In the near future James & Samantha intend to progress the cabins to a stage suitable for housing in the form of transportable modules according to either their designs or yours.Picture Gallery featuring our completed cabins.
