Hey neighbours, how do you feel about the changes to building consent rules for low-risk home projects?
The government says the change will save homeowners time and money, but pro builder and The Block NZ foreman Peter Wolfkamp, is advising caution if you're planning a DIY sleep-out or office. Find out why, here.
Good news neighbours! The government has relaxed the need for building consents for patios, sheds and carports meaning a 30 square-metre room can be built in the backyard without council permission. Saving you time and money!
Any new structure will still need to comply with the NZ Building Code.
So avoid a DIY disaster and enlist the expertise of a local Licensed Builder (like us) who knows the Code and can get cracking on your next outdoor project!
Call Andrew on 021 546 043 to talk through your ideas.
We have about 30 orange clivia plants that we've just pulled out of the garden and are available for pick-up outside 37 Schofield Street, Grey Lynn. Small and medium plants which if you settle into your garden now will probably reward you with lovely blooms come late winter/spring. Great for mass planting, and part-shade/ shade areas, flowers good for picking. Enjoy :-)
