Upcycled Pallet Cubby Houses Made in Australia

Cubby houses are such a wonderful part of childhood. Did you have a cubby? I remember having cubbies under trees and made indoors from blankets over chairs. Mr Recycled has made some amazing cubbies over the years for our boys, including a 2 storey fort with a sandpit underneath, and Maxwell’s current cubby made from recycled materials in the main. Recycled timbers such as pallets, have become hot property, and this clever husband and wife team, Jonathan & Jade from Little Hipster Kubby, have taken that a step further and made upcycled pallet cubbies their business.  It all started with a challenge that Jade gave Jonathan – they needed a chicken house. Jonathan wanted to make one and Jade wanted to buy one. So she agreed to him making it, but gave him the challenge to build a chicken house out of recycled timber.

It was a success and they both enjoyed it, as did their children, so much so they played in the chicken house more than their cubby!! That gave them the idea to build a cubby from recycled timber and they haven’t stop from there.

They now have a range of styles with many more to come! The current styles are Cafe, Market, Batcave, Saloon and Fairy. They can customise a cubby to your requirements to inspire your children’s creativity.

Each cubby is made from recycled timber and the sizes vary with custom sizes available.

You can see more on their Facebook page – Little Hipster Kubby – don’t you love them!
