mi shack is positioned for those who desire the touch of an architect but don’t wish to go through the expense, complexity and cost unknowns commonly associated with a bespoke design process.

It’s simply a new way to design using a modular system of preconfigured zones and pre-defined elements delivered via an uncomplicated construction system that utilises a hybrid of prefabricated and site built elements.

Why Map iT ?

Cost-effective design advice and essential due diligence to help you get your project started with confidence!

Each site has its own unique conditions and these can vary significantly from site to site.

When thinking of a budget most people are thinking only of the building itself which is only a part of the overall project cost and in most cases simply miss the realities of the potential other costs involved which can severely affect budget expectations.

In the case of fundamentals such as earthworks, services connections, and bushfire regulations, for example, varying site conditions can be significant budgetary drivers.

This is where MAP IT comes in, it will conduct critically important early stage initial due diligence on the site via a shack map design from the brief you supply. From this it will develop the initial budget range you will need to consider for your mi shack – before you commit to buy land or commence designing your very own mi shack on land you already have.

Unless you are a design professional, it goes without saying that you will of course most likely miss or be completely unaware of critical site conditions and regulations that you need to look out for.

Let ‘MAP IT ‘ reveal to you the important issues before you have gone too far.

Get started with your SHACK MAP!

‘Shack Map’ is a simplified diagrammatic method of producing a floor plan layout quickly and very cost-effectively.

It is the initiation for each project and your design process accelerator.

A Shack Map is a tool for generating a design that can be placed on a site plan to give you a good sense of the scale of your vision and quickly test the capabilities of the site in relation to important budget and design considerations.

The zones in a Shack Map also directly relate to construction methods and selections used by mi shack referenced against the costs of completed shacks allowing us to provide authentic market reference build costs to assist you with budget planning.

LETS get shacked










Zone It.

Get into the zone.

Each zone comes with a range of different interior layouts which can be flipped, rotated and adjusted to lock into each shack map combination. We’ve done all the hard work by designing a series of optimum layouts for each zone that simply work – in form, function and flow. All you need to do is make a pick to make it yours.

Style It.

Pick a roof style.

As the zones simply slide, glide, expand and adapt under each roof system, either style works.

By analysing your block with sun studies we optimise the solar passive aspects of your desired layout and attenuate the eaves and glazing according to your location and orientation.

This is where we create a funky 3D model of your mi shack so you can walk around the design in real time to feel the spaces and view the sun’s penetration.

Wave Shack.

Wave Shack.

A mix of Mid-century Modern 'Shazam!' with a dash of iconic Australian rural shed the 'WAVE SHACK' casts a strong presence with a clearly defined 'wave looking' wedge shape that grabs the eye.

Flat Shack.

Flat Shack.

The 'FLAT SHACK' draws strongly from a heritage of minimalist modern design started by the early modernist architects of the 1920's that carries through to today as 'contemporary minimalism'.

Pimp It.

mi shack has done all the suffering for you by pre-selecting items that ensure an effective balance of cost, style, touch, availability, maintenance, practicality, warranty and sustainability. All you will need to do is choose from our range to create your own vibe.
