Funky Little Shack

I commissioned the cabin on the mainland from PRT Industries who specialize in custom-made, portable, repurposed products to suit a range of domestic, industrial, and rural uses.


Covid, a totally and utterly fucked up council, and a shoddy 'tradie' caused the project to come in around $50k over budget and 8 months late.




The cabin was barged across to the island and installed on 8 footings.

I designed the cabin to be minimalist to the max - an off-grid sustainable unit with only a nominal footprint. Most everything is either recycled or recyclable - or both.

  • 9.3 x 3.4 including 3 x 3.4 deck (7.5 x 3.4 delivered, additional 1.8 deck ext onsite)

  • Aluminium windows with flyscreen: 100 wide x 1100 high

  • Aluminium sliding door with flyscreen: 1800 wide x 2100 high
