Dinky Di can supply the relevant engineering so that a shed is certified correctly under the building code of Australia and can then be fitted out as a liveable dwelling. We do not sell houses. We provide the rated shed kit only.

About a Liveable Shed Quote.

Dinky Di Sheds provide kit-set portal frame sheds (BCA Class 10a) that have been certified by an engineer as suitable for eventual use as a permanent dwelling (BCA Class 1a habitable). This includes all engineering documentation relevant to the steel structure only including foundation designs.
Any additional drafting, council submissions, certificates etc are not included.
We recommend the engagement of a town planner/certifier or qualified builder to assist with any other aspect of your project.

It is important that you understand there is a difference between a bells and whistles Kit Home and a Class 1a certified shed (as reflected in the price).
