LIVEABLE SHEDS

Residential
Liveable sheds

These days, driving forces like the cost of housing, plus product and architectural evolutions, means that people can now look to the humble shed as something more than just a shed – maybe even a home for their family.

That's where our liveable sheds can help.

We can purpose-design a liveable shed for you that meets all of today’s building code requirements, plus have the backing of a ShedSafe® accreditation. Whether you’re after a temporary home while another is built, a farm-stay holiday rental, a granny flat or something more permanent, we can design something to suit your land, budget and other constraints.

You can keep it basic or ‘turn up’ your design with a sophisticated COLORBOND® steel Matt finish, some architectural features such as UniCote® Lux patterned feature walling, Stramit® SharpLine standing seam walling and many more – you just tell us and we’ll design to suit your tastes and budget.

Let’s get started and find out what your perfect liveable shed looks like.
