Need a cost-effective way to enlarge your living space, an affordable hideaway, or a temporary home while you build your new house or business? Why not extend your property and increase its value by constructing a Class 1a liveable shed.

It’s easy to convert one of our high-quality steel sheds into a Class 1a liveable shed. The primary differences between a garage and a liveable dwelling are the interior fit-out and the foundation it rests.

Our team of expert customer service agents, together with a network of local designers, tradespeople and certifiers can guide you through the process of creating a Liveable Shed using one of our stylish steel garages as the foundation. We can also supply you with the necessary documentation required for council approval, including detailed plans, engineering letters, and concrete notes needed for a Class 1a building.

Our ShedTech design software makes the design process simple. Once you’ve decided on the size of your Liveable Shed, you then choose from either a gabled or skillion roof styles. We supply full COLORBOND® range for roofing and raingoods with a choice of over 20 colour. Seamlessly integrate your new living quarters with existing structures or create a bold new look.

Shed Alliance will supply all of the steel components for your building the same as we would a shed or garage. Additionally, our experienced team can assist you with choosing additional options like skylights, personal doors, awnings, screens, internal partitions, or even a mezzanine floor, enabling you to create an attractive, comfortable, and versatile liveable dwelling.

Our DIY kits come with all the parts you need and detailed, but easy-to-understand instructions. That makes it easy for our customers to assemble their livable shed themselves or co-ordinate local tradies as owner-builders. However, we’ll happily manage every step of the process using our extensive network of expert shed builders if you prefer.

With over 100+ locations around Australia and New Zealand, Shed Alliance will provide FREE or heavily discounted delivery of your Liveable Shed to almost any address in the country.

We have an extensive range of roller-doors in all sizes for both domestic and industrial purposes. All Colorsteel colours are available.

You can add multiple PA doors to your shed. All doors are usually 2040mm x 820mm and can come with locksets if needed.






There is a range of fixed sized windows available for your shed in all Colorsteel colours. If needed you can add security screens or fly screens to your windows.




Glass Sliding Doors


If your shed is also your office, you may wish to add a glass sliding door. Glass doors are available in a fixed amount of sizes in all Colorsteel colours. Security screens can also be added.






There is a range of ventilation options available to add to your shed. Whether you need a way to cool the workshop in summer or you are working with chemicals, a solution is available.






If you are going to be working in your shed a lot, you may wish to insulate the roof from the heat of summer, or cold of winter.




Vermin Flashings


A vermin flashing is an excellent way to stop mice, rats or snakes getting into your shed between the edge of the slab and the wall sheets.




Roller Door Motors and Remotes


You can add a motor and remote to your roller-doors so they open and close automatically. No one wants to get out of the car to open the door in the middle of a storm.




Mezzanine Floors


A mezzanine floor can be added for additional storage room in your shed. A great place to store that tent that never gets used.




Attached Awning


You can add an awning or lean-to to the side of your shed to park the car. Awnings can also be enclosed with sheeting if needed.
