Need more living space, an affordable retreat, or a temporary place to stay while you’re building your new house? Did you know you can easily convert many of our high-quality BlueScope steel sheds to a Class 1a liveable shed? Well you can..
The main differences between a garage and a liveable dwelling are the foundation it rests on and the interior fit out. Our expert team of customer service agents, together with a network of local designers, tradespeople and certifiers will happily guide you through the process of creating a liveable shed using one of our stylish garages as a base. As part of our service we can also provide you with the various documentation you’ll need for council approval including engineering letters, plans and concrete notes required for a Class 1a building.
The first part of the process is to decide on the size of your liveable shed, along with the roof style, and colour scheme. Our ShedTech design software makes the design process easy. You can choose from gabled or skillion roof designs and over 20 colours for your roofing and raingoods from the full COLORBOND® range. Shed Alliance will supply all of the steel components for your building the same as we would a shed or garage, but that’s not all. Our expert team can assist you with choosing additional features like awnings, skylights, personal doors, screens, internal partitions, and perhaps even a mezzanine floor allowing you to create an attractive, comfortable, and versatile habitable dwelling.
With over 100+ locations around Australia, Shed Alliance will provide FREE or steeply discounted delivery of your shed to almost any address in the country.
