Class 1a Liveable Buildings

Introducing our liveable shed kits – a remarkable addition to our diverse range of sheds and garages. Yet, the distinction doesn't stop at the foundation; it delves deep into the structural intricacies, specifically the bracing requirements essential to meet internal finishes' deflection limitations and prevent unsightly cracking.

But rest assured, at Sheds n Homes, we are well-versed in navigating these nuances. Our local Sheds n Homes store is dedicated to working closely with you, to develop a foundation design and structural bracing that not only meets but exceeds the requirements of the Building Code of Australia.

So, whether you have specific preferences, unique needs, or a creative vision in mind, trust us to craft the perfect design that ensures your liveable shed kit is not only compliant but also comfortable and safe.

Our Portal Frame

Our Class 1a liveable sheds are built using the durable Sheds n Homes portal frame system. This system consists of C-Section columns, which are supported by girts located on the outer sides of the wall. The COLORBOND® steel or ZINCALUME® cladding is then affixed to these components. This design is known for its exceptional strength.

As always, we take customisation seriously. We design to match the wind conditions in your region and the specific requirements of your site. This site-specific engineering guarantees that your structure is not just strong but also perfectly engineered to serve its intended purpose in your unique location.
