Transform Your Backyard with the Burleigh Range: A Case Study in Lane Cove

Updated: Oct 31, 2023

At Bibo Build, we take great pride in creating functional and stylish spaces for our customers. Our recently completed project in Lane Cove, NSW, showcases the versatility and craftsmanship of our Burleigh Range. We tailored the 8m x 3.3m structure to meet the needs of a growing family that also required a dedicated home office space.

The Burleigh Range is known for its sleek design and spacious interiors, making it an ideal choice for various purposes. We incorporated a unique recessed façade design for this project, giving the structure an attractive and modern aesthetic. The timber colour chosen was bamboo in its natural shade, laid vertically to add an interesting visual element to the exterior.

We carefully planned the interior of the building to maximise functionality and comfort. The floor plan includes ample storage space for garden tools, such as a lawnmower, ensuring a clutter-free environment. The final kitchen joinery seamlessly integrated a kitchenette and a desk, providing a practical workspace within the studio. To flood the interiors with natural light, we installed double-glazing triple sliding doors and windows with an impressive height of 2.5 meters.

To cater to the customer's needs, we incorporated solid walls at the front of the structure, allowing for a TV or artwork placement. The decking design ensures seamless access to the studio, creating a harmonious transition between indoor and outdoor spaces.

The choice of interior colours further enhances the overall aesthetic. The floor features a beautiful Hawaii oak finish. At the same time, the tile selection is Terrazzo Light Grey for both floor and wall, adding a touch of elegance to the space. The joinery is crafted from natural oak, providing a warm and inviting atmosphere.

As with any project, we faced unique challenges that tested our expertise and problem-solving skills. Plumbing proved to be a hurdle, as the studio was situated in the backyard, necessitating the installation of plumbing lines underneath the main house. Furthermore, our skilled plumbers carefully cut and planned multiple rings of retaining walls to surround the back end of the backyard.

The complexity of the build location added another layer of intricacy to the project. We had to construct the building on top of a garden bed and partially on an existing concrete slab meant for a shed. By repurposing the slab, we minimised demolition work and reduced costs. Additionally, multiple stairs posed a logistical challenge during the construction process. However, our team's expertise and attention to detail ensured a smooth execution.

One notable aspect of the site was a large tree, which fortunately did not hinder the project. A preliminary examination confirmed it was an exempt tree, allowing us to proceed without complications.

Overall, completing this Burleigh build in Lane Cove highlights Bibo Build's commitment to delivering high-quality structures catered to the specific needs of our customers. The combination of functionality, stylish design, and attention to detail creates a versatile space that caters to the requirements of a growing family while providing a comfortable and efficient workspace.
