Having relocated from Sydney, our client purchased a fantastic property in Northern New South Wales on which to semi-retire. In addition to the main residence, he wanted to build a small shed for rental purposes to supplement income. The client had very specific ideas about the size and overall footprint of the building and all in compliance with strict Class 1A secondary dwelling Council restrictions (under 60 sqm). He engaged Totally Sheds to supply and construct a dwelling based on his detailed design and exacting requirements and thus the ‘Gatehouse’ project was now underway.
Working with a sloping block, Totally Sheds organised contractors to complete the earthworks and construction of a Gabion wall in accordance with the clients’ engineering requirements and this, along with the engineered footings were completed over a few weeks. The main structure then took shape quickly and within 6-days it was standing and weather tight; with all walls (in horizontal cladding) and windows/glass sliding doors installed. The balance of the work to complete the dwelling (all designed by the client), the addition of the deck structures, internal walls, kitchen & bathroom finishing, joinery and fit out was undertaken by the client’s own builder.
Throughout the process Totally Sheds worked closely with the builder, client and his engineering firm to ensure a smooth build, and that all components/materials were to code including a Bush Fire Rating and required flashings.
The client is very pleased with the end-product and Totally Sheds is happy to report the building passed all council and certification requirements as a Class 1A Liveable Dwelling and is now tenanted. Totally Sheds is particularly proud to be associated with this unique building.
