Your local store can provide information on your local council's regulations, but most of our BlueScope Steel sheds can be turned into a Class 1a livable dwelling or shed home.
Whether you need a rumpus room for the kids, or a granny flat to provide a supplementary income - or something in between - a livable shed can add functional space to your home.
Our Class 1a livable sheds use the strong and robust Sheds n Homes portal frame system. It features C-Section columns supported by girts on the outer sides of the wall, upon which the COLORBOND® steel or ZINCALUME® cladding is then attached. This design provides supreme strength and as always, we custom design to suit your wind region and site design criteria. This site specific engineering ensures a fit for purpose structure engineered for your location.
A livable shed kit is essentially no different to any of our sheds and garages. The difference in a Class 1a habitable dwelling is the foundation design. In order to be classified safe to live in, the foundation design must meet the criteria of the Building Code of Australia. Your local Sheds n Homes store will work closely with you to formulate the perfect design to suit your unique requirements.
