Liveable Sheds – Design Freedom

Liveable sheds have become a very popular alternative to the mainstream building method employed by your typical house builder.

The Sunshine Coast is particularly suited to the shed style of liveable space due to its laid back lifestyle and the many rural, semi-rural and rural residential blocks of land available.

Quite a number of farm properties are being subdivided and presenting wonderful opportunity to those wanting a much more basic style of building which costs so much less than the more ‘typical’ ways of building a liveable space. Also on the Sunshine Coast there are many existing rural properties with established dwellings and due to local council by laws, there has been allowance made to permit a secondary dwelling(or liveable shed).

There is a vast range of freedom in design when we consider that the shed structure is basically a large open space inside which there is freedom of choice as to the layout of rooms without the need to consider internal walls being required for the strength of the building.

What to Consider

There are some things to consider when planning your home space:

  • Would you like mainly open living?
  • Or would you prefer more enclosed separate areas that are fit for different purposes?

There are many different forms of building to either standout as unique, or blend in with existing structures on your land. We can match roof shapes, blend colours etc

SGI has been building liveable sheds on the Sunshine Coast and surrounding areas for more than 30 years. If you need help with the design process and installation of your liveable shed, please give us a call. The earlier you call us during the decision process the better. This can save you lots of money in the long run.

Our Building Process

We believe that communication and understanding are paramount to ensuring your goals, needs and final project outcome meets all your expectations. An initial meeting with our experienced Sales Manager & Estimator is set up to determine if what you have envisioned aligns with council requirements and regulations. Once these requirements have been met we can decide what type of structure would best suit your needs.

This is where your initial conceptual ideas turn to real design from which the project is planned. We provide in-house engineering and organize all local government approvals and certification. Approximate project timelines can be established for when you can expect each project phase, We communicate with you through this process and inform you when your project has been approved by council allowing us to start processing and order materials.

Material processing and orders are handled by our Construction Management team who will also plan and confirm established project timelines. You will be kept up to date either with confirmation that the current schedule can be expected or if there are any adjustments need to be made. Only genuine Colorbond and locally produced steel of the highest quality is used for your project.

All of our builders and contractors have been carefully selected for their experience, passion and attention to detail. They are also fully qualified, insured and compliant with current Work Place Health & Safety requirements.

Effective communication throughout each building process assists us in ensuring that upon project completion all your expectation are accounted for. Upon completion, a final inspection will be organised with one of our Construction Management Team to confirm complete satisfaction of the final product.
