Generally speaking, you don’t always need planning permission to build small structures or a home office on your own land. A lot of people dream of leaving the rat race behind and start working from home. However, if you are already pushed for space inside your house, it may be difficult to create a suitable working environment.

There is always the option of building a new structure in your backyard, but most people are put off by the thought of having to go through the rigorous process of acquiring planning permission. Fortunately, you don’t always need planning permission to build small structures on your own land.

Small buildings under 10sqm are exempt from building regulations, with some councils relaxing rules for slightly larger buildings. As such, planning permission is often not required when you want to install one of architecturally designed Home Office Cabins.

All our portable buildings are built to the very highest standards possible, using only NZ materials, so you can be sure of working in a quality office when you buy one of our cabins.
