The first step is generally choosing the style of Shed you want & the requirements of the Shed. Then you can measure the site of the shed & measure the heights & lengths of your Caravans/ Boat/ Vehicles & workbenches etc.
Email us if you need an On-site measure & Estimate.
Once you have finalised your Proposed Shed design, the Project needs to be submitted to your Regional Council for Building Consent. Our Draftsman can compile the necessary documents including any extra Engineering and site specific Wind Speeds/ Snowloads to comply with NZ Building Code. This can be completed in 4 weeks for simple builds.
Your NZ Made Shed materials will be manufactured in Auckland or Christchurch and your Windows & Doors, Flashings & Spouting are manufactured locally in Cromwell. We typically allow 4 - 6 weeks for the materials to be on your door step ready for Construction.
Fair Dinkum Sheds are commonly built by their owners & we make sure they have all the necessary plans, instructions & time with Builders who have had experience with construction. We also have customers that want us to Build their Shed from start to finish, from Site Excavation right through to internal fit-out.
