Kanga Room Systems
Austin-based Kanga Room Systems offers prefab small-scale buildings ranging from a small 8×8 shed to a larger 16×18 cabin or guesthouse, starting around $5,900. The company offers one of the more affordable options on the market and can be added on to over time with a bathroom, kitchenette, porches, and additional rooms. The three styles available are modern, bungalow and country cottage.
The structure can be placed on a concrete slab or built on out on pier and beam foundations to work around structures needing plumbing. The kit arrives as panelized pieces with the floors, walls and roof separated out and the company estimates that “a skilled construction crew” would take three days or less to assemble one of the structures.
The designs are beautiful and modern as opposed to their counterparts that we have seen that often look kitschy and outdated and are a good way to add an office to any home, or a small guesthouse, pool house, children’s or teen’s private space, or an art studio.
The model Kanga Room is set up in Austin at the Farmer’s Market on Burnet Road, the perfect place given their culture of sustainability and their encouragement of people to take part in smart living.
