    Choosing your Contemporary Studio


    Choose the Perfect Size

    Our Contemporary Studios come in 3 standard sizes. We manufacture our Studios locally, which means you also have the option to design your own custom studio to ensure you are getting the best option that works with your space, style and budget.

    Contemporary range sizes


    Add a Verandah

    Give your studio extra cover with our choice of verandahs.


    Finish + Seal

    Your Studio is as colourful as you are! Personalise your studio by painting the cement cladding in your choice of colours, or upgrade to Colorbond® steel cladding to have the work already done for you!


    Add your personality

    Your new studio can be designed to blend in, stand out or designed to be as functional as you need it to be.


    Do the studios need to be dug into the ground and concreted?

    No. We have designed our Studios to be free-standing sitting on 90mm x 90mm stumps and 240mm x 45mm sole plates.
    *If you have sandy, soft or unstable ground we would recommend concreting and we can add this to your install – please contact us for a quote.

    What is Sisalation Paper?

    Sisalation Paper is a foil insulation material which helps regulate moisture, reduces summer heat gain and winter heat loss. We use sisalation paper on the inside of the studio walls and roofs to ensure you the best quality backyard studio.

    Does my studio come standard with a window or door?

    We include one of our high-quality solid house doors, but do not include a window. This allows you the freedom to choose from our window options listed above. You can change your door option or add a second.

    The site where the studio is going is unlevel, does that matter?

    In most cases, no. The standard studio posts are supplied at 600mm and are able to accommodate a fall of up to 400mm. However, we can provide posts to the extreme length of 2450mm to accommodate a steep fall. If you have a steep fall, we’d recommend a free site inspection.

    Nice to know

    In NSW/ACT, in many cases backyard structures up to 20m2 don’t require a building permit. Check below here for further information on exempt development.

    In QLD/VIC, the size is smaller (10sqm), however each state has unique additional guidelines which can be viewed below.

    In SA, the permitted footprint is 15sqm generally (additional guidelines apply as per the link below).

    What our customers say

    • Studio Dream

      Aaron, Thank you for the construction of my Studio Space for me to run my Studio from.  The guys did a great job and do you credit.  They even helped me move in my desks and computer Rack and filing cabinet, as well as build an excellent space. There is still electrics, insulation, plaster boarding and then the larger work of setting up the workspace so I can operate out of there, but seeing this installed helps to provide a picture of my possible future. And this is good.

    • Great customer service, great product - A big thank you to Aarons

      Shakara is so excited and happy with her studio room, which you entitled Shakara's Costume Design Office (I might even get a sign made up of that 🙂 I have installed temporary lighting, so we are not limited to daylight hours to be in there, designing what will go where, and how to set things up. I have already purchased and installed (myself) hard wearing vinyl flooring today. Jason and Mike were great workers, and a credit to your company. To be out in that weather, with the wind and drizzle, a radio playing, working away was customer service above and beyond. (and their choice of music was great too). They keep me up to date on where they were at with the installation, where they were going, when they would be back and even played ball with the dog during smoko.It goes without saying, or even having to ask that I will be putting up a review or two or three. And will definitely putting a post up on facebook.Thanks again for your great customer service, great product and the ease at which I was able to achieve this new work space, and retain my sanity.

    • The right cubby for our needs

      We bought our cubby from Aarons at Marsden Park. They were great in helping us to choose the right cubby for our needs, as well as suggesting they deliver in pieces so that we could paint it on the ground, before they came back to put it together. Everything was on time and exactly as promised. Most importantly, our daughter loves her new cubby!

    • Would not hesitate to recommend Aarons Outdoor Living

      After doing a fair amount of research we decided to build our new outdoor studio with Aarons Outdoor Living at Windsor Gardens. I must admit that I was a little concerned at first when I read some of the reviews from people in other States around Australia regarding workmanship and lack of follow up from management.However, upon first impressions, Peter from the South Australian branch put my fears at ease. He was personable, listened and responded to our vision, and provided his own insight and expertise into our project.Although hesitant, we went with our gut feeling and decided to take a chance, which may seem foolish to some, but hindsight has confirmed our gut feeling was right.I am unable to make any comments regarding the reviews in other states, but I can say, with confidence that the work quality and work ethic from all those at Arrons in Adelaide South Australia was first class. Communication was fantastic and any issues or concerns were handled promptly. They went above and beyond. The final product was to a high standard and Jason and Michael (Construction) were always prompt and their onsite manner was very professional.Would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone looking to build in the area. Well done and thank you to the team at Aarons Outdoor living,

      I'm thrilled to bits with my new studio! Pete, thank you and your lads for such an excellent job.I'm thrilled to bits with my new studio, and am gradually filling it to bursting, and also the garden shed! I'm sitting at my computer right now, with a pleasant view of flowers in my window box, hanging baskets, and blue sky and trees over the road. Lovely! Thanks again for your advice and expertise. Ray Tyndale SA Thanks for your email and all your and Sam’s help getting this done, you two have been so easy to deal with through the whole process, the other people I contacted for just quotes before coming to you were just difficult! Jason and Max were great too, I was here today for the first time all week and Jason was great this morning, he spent the first 15 minutes walking me through why certain things were
    • Would definitely recommend Aarons. Affordable, quality, hassle free backyard entertainment options

      Visited Aarons Outdoor at their showroom on a free afternoon on a weekend and absolutely loved it. Seeing pergolas, gazebos, studios, screens, cubbies, firepits and more on display really helped us to visualise and chose what exactly we needed for our backyard. Ended up with pergola, studio and some statues.

      The staff were courteous and professional. All our dealings were with Polly from Loganholme. She was prompt and friendly, and always very helpful. The site visit person and all the installation men were great too. They have done their job very well. Even with the wet summer this year, glad they strictly adhered to schedule and finished on time.

      We are really happy with our overall experience.

    • We are very happy with how it came up and is exactly what we wanted.

      I have attached a few photos of the completed Studio you guys supplied for us.

    • 5 Stars for value for money, fantastic service and quality.

      The whole family is blown away by Jason’s professionalism, courtesy and standard of work. We’ve been taking progress photos and we’re amazed how quickly the room is taking shape. Because of the trust we have in Jason’s abilities, the whole process is fun! We have no worries or stress and also we can go about our tasks without being at all inconvenienced despite having a massive building project happening in our backyard. It’s bringing our backyard to life and my husband and I have no doubts that we made a really smart decision to invest in this room from your company. I know that all of our friends will be interested to hear about our experience and Aaron’s Outdoors will be getting nothing but rave reviews from the 3 of us here. A giant THANK YOU to Jason and to Aarons’s Outdoors. P.S. A major reason for going with Aarons is due to the quality website. In particular the great photos of different models & sizes PLUS the fact that everything is priced on the website meant that in the end we didn’t even travel to the display centre. (It’s a fair drive from Pt Noarlunga & we just felt we had all the info we could possibly need online).

    • Thank you for your amazing customer service and helping us to achieve our outdoor studio

      Thank you for your amazing customer service and helping us to achieve our outdoor studio - WE LOVE IT! Pete, you were always available to answer call/queries etc and always so professional with a Can Do attitude.I really want to make a VERY special mention to Jason. He is by far the most professional, thorough, hardworking person builder (or similar) I have worked with. His knowledge on the materials used and details of the structure were explained in detail, and it was very clear he knew exactly what had to be done! If /when we use Aarons again, I really hope Jason is the primary installer.Shane also cant recommend Jason highly enough.

    • Very happy with the finished product. It's Awesome!

      Just had a studio built for my fiancé to do her art work in.

    • Thank you to Pete at Aarons Outdoor Adelaide for his expertise and product knowledge.

      Pete assisted me to choose the best size and style of retreat to meet my needs.. Jason and Max were fantastic and worked in the rain to complete my outdoor retreat on time. Both were very professional, polite and communicated the progress on a daily basis. Their work ethic is a credit to them both. Susie also kept them in check throughout the week.

    • Amazing studio!! So happy

      The staff were super easy .. from my initial enquires to the final moments of the build the whole process was easy & fast. Staff were polite & customer focused. Whole process was customer focused. Would certainly recommend

    • We are blown away at the result.

      The process was well managed and Theo and Dylan did a fantastic job on a very difficult sloping block – but nothing fazed them. They were attentive to detail and you can see from the photos, their workmanship was first class. We thank them for their professionalism and dedication in a real Covid challenged period. We have just completed some landscaping work which complements the Studio and has had nothing but rave responses from our friends and family. As you can appreciate we have recommended Aarons Outdoors to everyone we know.

    • Thanks for your email and all your and Sam’s help getting this done, you two have been so easy to deal with through the whole process, the other people I contacted for just quotes before coming to you were just difficult!

      Jason and Max were great too, I was here today for the first time all week and Jason was great this morning, he spent the first 15 minutes walking me through why certain things were done the way they were done and answering all my questions.   We are so pleased we went with the double French doors and extra windows. It really changes it from a workshop to a really nice looking room.

    • Sam and his team who did the install went above and beyond, taking great pride in their workmanship and care of our property/surrounding gardens.

      We recently had a Contemporary studio installed to use as a office/outdoor entertaining area, it is just fantastic, we spent a lot of time looking at every imaginable option on the market and this studio stood out from the competitors by a long way with its style, build quality, price and dealing with a long standing reputable company, this option was in a league of its own. This is our third Aaron's product and I would highly recommend to others, plenty of other cheap options on the market but if you want something of quality that will last Aaron's is the only way to go.

    • Cabin Envy

      I have recently had a cabin built at home  It was built while I was overseas but have just returned home and seen the result.  It looks great and your guys have done a great job so thanks very much. I have had a few friends and neighbours around looking at it so wouldnn't be surprised if you get another couple of orders from out this way!!!! I found the whole process from initially meeting up with Polly to the end result very hassle free and friendly together with great assistance and willingness to help being very evident. Thanks again, I will certainly recommend you guys in the future.
