Star Cabin Canopy Kitset (9m2+9m2 Canopy)
The pressure treated Star Cabin 3x3m kitset is one of our most popular models of cabin. With 9m2 of floorspace, the Star cabin rests comfortably in the balance between providing plenty of interior space, fitting within most local council building restrictions, and not swallowing up too much garden space in your back yard.
Now you can make it even better, with the addition of a three-meter canopy out the front, you can relax outside with plenty of additional shelter from rain and sun. (Or click here to go back to the regular Star Cabin without the canopy.)
A couple of important notes:
- A deck is not included as part of the Canopy kitset, (some people prefer to add paving or lay ceramic tiles on a concrete slab).
- If your cabin and canopy will be built in an area that is exposed or experiences high wind, we strongly recommend that you also buy the Canopy Storm Brace Kit to help ensure your cabin and canopy both remain thouroughly grounded, where they belong.

Council Approval & Consents:
Council approval is not required* in most areas of AU & NZ providing your cabin...
