Are the cubby houses built with child safe material?

  • Garden Envi builds all our children’s products with untreated child safe timber and materials.
  • All our buildings are constructed with 75mm batten screws which add durability and strength.
  • Built to last!  Design in advance to convert into a teenager retreat, studio or she shed.
  • Extend the value!
  • Easy transport if you move!

Do I need to prepare the site?

  • Yes, you will need to select and prepare the site for your building.
  • It is best to ensure a level surface is prepared for accurate assembly of the building.
  • Ask for options, not all sites will require a cement pad installation.
  • Most garden sheds and studios do not require a concrete slab and this can be a great savings. Some Cubby Houses and Garden Sheds can be put directly on the ground or on stumps/piers.
  • You may want to install a deck or lay pavers.
  • At the site visit we can recommend the best options for your particular project.

Do you need council approval? – This is one of the most asked questions.

  • In most cases council allows self-assessment. Council does not require you to get approvals for class 10A Buildings which include cubby houses, garden sheds, and gazebos.
  • Each additional building adds to the total roof area of the outdoors structures of your block.
  • There are certain height and size restrictions that may apply and can vary in different council areas.
  • It is up to the property owner to decide if they require council approvals, or relaxation requests.  Please check with your local council for any approvals that you may need.
