Namgyalgar Retreat Cabin

The Gakyil is pleased to announce the Council approved the Gar Development Application extension and the construction of a personal retreat cabin. The cabin will be produced by ‘Teeny Tiny Homes’ based in Caboolture, Qld. and is 12m x 3m in size, with a ‘Venice style’ floor plan, (as seen in the photos which are an example of the type of cabin). The cabin will be situated on the terrace below the house in the horticultural area as was approved in the original DA for accommodation. It will be fabricated offsite and delivered to the Gar in February 2021 and placed on concrete footings, after which some fittings will need to be done and connection to sewerage and utilities. It’s expected installation of the cabin will be completed by mid-February.  Later it may be possible to add a deck and do some landscaping.  More information about the cabin is available at:

A deposit of $5,000. to enable fabrication of the cabin to proceed will be paid soon, with final payment of $37,000. to be paid on completion of the cabin. There will also be other costs for site works, connections etcetera so total cost will be approximately $80,000. Any queries about the cabin please contact Sean:
