Less Council red tape a backyard bonus.

Andrew Clark from Warren Adolph Homes est 1990

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.
