They’re also great for sites where a garage would restricts views and access; or which aren’t occupied year-round.


An Ideal garage is the perfect way to keep your vehicles, tools, and prized possessions secure and protected from the weather. They’re part of the New Zealand way of life so they can add real value to a property too! We have a wide range so you can choose a size and style to match your needs.


Serious storage, where space is tight. Designed to maximise capacity without consuming large areas of space.


Our popular range of cottages and small kitset homes are the perfect solution for first homebuyers, or clients looking to add minor dwellings or rental accommodation to their property. They also make for an ideal bach or holiday home at the beach.

Garden Sheds

Utility Sheds

As the name suggests, utility sheds are really, really handy! And they’re under 10m2, so no building consent is required.
