Ideal Buildings are your local specialist in garages, sleepouts, cottages and carports. As well as our standard range of plans, we all specialise in customised design

Talk to one of our friendly IDEAL Distributors, who can tell you about our huge list of options which give you a choice of colours, claddings, joinery and door types.


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

Garage Sleepouts

Our wide range of garaging formats can be turned into usable living spaces with ensuites. Garage sleepouts are a great option for young families who need extra room, or for home businesses that need an office space.


Sleepouts can provide a quiet home office, art studio, hobby room, music room, extra bedroom for teens, guest room or even rental accommodation.


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.


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.

Utility Sheds

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