I'm thinking about building a new shed in place of the old one I had to tear down a few years ago. The area measures 3220*2280mm from the outside of the existing breeze blocks on the floor. My idea is to have a two sided shed and the third and fourth walls to be the house walls. Roof of the shed to starts from underneath the house.
I think timber would be the easiest, but not sure what to use. Any ideas would be great? Once I know this, then I can cost it to see if I can afford to do this.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Welcome to Workshop and apologies for the slow reply.
Feel free to post anytime you need a hand with a project or have something to share. We are looking forward to seeing this one come to life.
Sorry for the late reply.
The first step I would be taking is to speak to your local building board/ council to see if you need a permit.
I'm pretty sure if you are going to use the two house walls as part of the shed and have a solid roof you may need too get a permit and then drawings done up.
But it doesn't hurt to call before to check.
Then you will get a clearer picture as to what steps to take next.
Kind regards Rob 👍😁
+1 to needing approval if it has a roof and is attached to the main building based on SA rules which are supposed to be national standard.
