 Q) Do you need a building consent for these Sheds?

A) Homelandz recommends you check with your local Council requirements as these can vary from area to area. However, for most places consents aren’t required for buildings under 10m2.
Please see further important information taken from 
the Auckland City Council website
Accessory buildings

You will not need a building consent to add an accessory building to your property, like a sleepout, garden shed, granny flat or cabin, provided the building:

  •         is less than 10 square metres in floor area
  •         is more than its height away from all boundaries and other dwellings
  •         does not contain cooking or sanitary facilities, or a potable (drinkable) water supply.

If your accessory building doesn't meet all of these criteria, you will need a building consent.

If your accessory building is more than 10 square metres in floor area, or is close to other buildings or fences, you may also need a resource consent, depending on the rules in the applicable District Plan.

Note the floor area of an accessory building is included in any calculations of maximum permitted building coverage for your whole site under the planning rules.

This is written to the best knowledge and research of the writer. SheShed and Homelandz take no responsibility for misguided, misused information. This is correct at the date written and it is instructed that all purchasers of sheds do their own investigation to what consents apply in their local council.

Q) Do you install these?

A) We can organise a builder for you at the cost of $150.00, plus the cost of the Standard Build*. If you require Extra Work* you will need to arrange these details directly with the builder yourself. Follow the link HERE for more information.

If you wish to assemble yourself, we recommend a builder or a home handyman with sound building knowledge / Trade skills put these up. They come with clear building instructions with photos as well as a video showing 2 x tradesmen installing a shed. It is quicker and easier with 2 people. Click on this link to view the build

.Q) Can I have a larger or smaller shed?  Do you custom make them? 

A)  In this range we have 2 sizes, She Shed size - 3m x 3m Square x 2.8 Height 
     The Cute Tiny Shed - Width 2.472 x Depth 1.972 x Height 2.6m
We don’t custom make them. We have had many customers purchase 2 or more sheds, read the blog here on how you could join 2 sheds together 

Q) Is the Pine treated?

A) The Ground Bearers are H4 treated. The wood is kiln dried pine timber and needs to be protected with a good quality primer / paint and or a clear sealant for weather protection
It is advisable to put on a dry surface but if it’s going in a wet mouldy area it would be advisable to put building paper over top of the treated bearers between the floor board joists. Bitumen building paper can be purchased from most building hardware stores, this is not supplied with the kitset

Q) I am interested in the wooden kitset cabins. Is it delivered like it shows in the picture, or it is sheets in the package only?

A) These are fully kitset, so they come with everything you see in the photos of the shed itself on our website (except final paint or stain) delivered to you all completely flat packed on 2 x pallets, these need to be hand unloaded when they arrive and stored somewhere where they will be kept completely dry and off damp ground until installation. 

Q) Can they be lined?

A) Yes they can – there are a few options available, if you are wanting to line them we suggest checking with a builder. You can also check out our suggestions in this blog here

Q) Do they have power / plumbing ?

A) No we do not provide power or plumbing. This can of course be done, You would need to contact a local registered electrician or registered plumber, they will give you a quote.

Q) Can we have a larger / smaller or extra window / different door?

A) No, these come standard with the window/door shown in the photo. It is possible we could order you an extra window if required, contact us for a price and availability details. This would need to be installed by a builder it is not part of the plan or included in the installation cost.

We now offer in the 9m2 Shed the option to change the back window to a side window see our Shed accessories page. Extra parts and instructions are supplied on how to do this.

  • Q) Can the Perspex windows be replaced for glass?

    A) Yes they can, although we don’t do this, you can easily do yourself once you have the shed.
    You would need to contact a local glass company to give you a quote. 

    Q) For the roof, we would prefer coloursteel to match our home, can we get this instead of tiles?
    A) Yes you can, however you would need to organise this yourself.

    Q) Can I choose a different colour?
    A) You can have it any colour you wish. It is delivered in its natural form, you must paint or stain it to protect the timber (in a colour of your choice) with a recommended product from your local paint store, ensuring you follow manufacturer’s instructions. 

Q) Does the kitset shed come with a guarantee?
If any components are damaged when the kitset arrives we will replace them as long as you let us know, including taking photos of any damages & emailing them within 2 days of arrival to your property. 

  • Kitset Shed MUST be coated inside and out with 2-3 coats of a quality protective sealant (wood stain or primer / paint) and must be regularly maintained as per manufacturer’s instructions. This must be done as soon as the shed has been completed, (or it could be done prior to build) it must not be left unprotected
    We recommend checking your shed every six months for maintenance purposes.
  • No guarantee against poor building workmanship, or if our instructions have not been followed for the complete build and paint to completion, including using the sealant provided for around door and window.
    You must have a clear and level site. An uneven or sinking site will cause the doors to jam or timber walls to move.
  • You are responsible for the covering and securing of all materials on site against weather, (for both sun and rain protection) damage and/or theft. 
    Important - It must NOT be left uncovered or on damp ground pre-build
  • This shed is an environmental choice, it is a natural product, that should be properly looked after and maintained. 

  • Note on Shed Placement
    Be mindful of how you position your shed, if you are in a cold wet area, sun and warmth is important.  For optimal life span it is recommended to be sheltered away from direct driving rain, e.g. beside fences, house walls or trees, this helps break up driving rain.

We pride ourselves on excellent customer service and are available for “after sales” support
