Every council or building authority in Australia has its own rules and regulations when it comes to SHEDS whether it is Garden Sheds, Storage Sheds, Garages or Barns so it is always wise to check before you make a purchase.

Most council’s allow a garden shed up to 10 sq metres to be erected without a permit.

The most common shed size to fit this requirement is a 3m x 3m shed (9 square metres), but you can go bigger thanks to some clever thinking by the people at Durabuilt who make the EasySHED range.

Imagine having a bigger shed say 4.3m x 2.25m (9.6 square metres), this is possible using the EasySHED Truss Shed model 0404E 4.5m x 2.25m and making some simple adjustments.


All you need to do is cut (using a hacksaw or angle grinder), 235mm from the channels on the 4.5m side (4 wall channels and 4 roof channels and 235mm from the roof ridge beam), then overlap 1 rib in the front and back walls and the 2 roof panels and there you have it. A much bigger shed without the need for permit fees

This shed has the added strength of a truss frame and overlapping these wall panels will also add strength. Even better for the taller person you can chose to increase the wall height of this shed from 1.8m to 1.98m or even 2.10m for just a little extra!

One word of warning if you live in high wind areas or in the tropics this is not suitable you will need to use the NEW STORM Shed suitable for cyclonic winds up to 316kph (88ms) www.stormshed.com.au
