A shed isn’t just a place for garden tools; a shed can be many things including an outdoor living room. Whether you need an extra room for a teenage retreat, hobbies or a granny flat, a shed makes an attractive, functional and durable outdoor room.
What is a Shouse?
A shouse is another word for a shed house (also known as a ‘shed home’ or ‘shome’). These portal frame buildings are a cost-effective way to add extra living space to your existing home and are often used for:
- home offices
- children’s playrooms
- man caves
- teenager hangouts
- granny flats
- extra room for relatives or visitors
Liveable Shed Examples
This stunning detached building starts from $18,000 including slab and install.
We lodged this outdoor shed room through council for a 1 room with ensuite, fully insulated!
4.5 x 6m and perfect for a hobby shed, granny flat, studio or teenage retreat.
Remember there is a big difference between a shed (a Class 10 building) and a liveable dwelling (a class 1a building). Make sure you understand the different building classifications and get the correct advice before you start building.
Ready-made shed homes
If you’re looking for a shed home that’s ready to go, a kit-shed house is a good option. However, make sure you talk to your local council or a private certifier about approvals before you make too many decisions.
Sheds can also be custom-designed with flexible interiors to create a unique living space. For example, to create more living space for a growing family or to store music equipment, art materials or fitness gear.
How much does a livable shed cost?
Most people want to know how much for a new shed? The answer isn’t always as straightforward as you might think. Location, site, concrete slab, insulation, electrics and plumbing all need to be factored in and will impact the final price. It’s always best to speak to your local shed builder about your ideas for a new shed.
