Project Description

Double Garage 5.8m x 8.5m – MACGREGOR


This is a fantastic example of how you can make your garage look amazing with just a few little changes.

This garage makes use of a skillion roof, large roller door and sleek clean flashings to give a modern look. Its less of a “sheddy” feel and more of a garage / studio look. The use of the hugely popular colorbond colour monument sets the whole thing of nicely. (monument is definitely the colour of 2020)

First Sheds handled absolutely everything in this one.


All inclusive approval package + successfully argued for a 1n departure from the development rules.
Demolition and removal of existing shed
Demolition and removal of slab and part of driveway
New slab as well as blending in the new driveway to match the level
Garage supply
Garage constructed
Storm water hookup
New fence and gate

The approval of this garage really shows off First Sheds development expertise in the Canberra market. We were successfully able to put a case to ACTpla for why this block should be allowed to deviate from the standard set of rules and achieve a 1n exemption notice. This allowed the shed to be approved as DA exempt and saved the client thousands of dollars in application fees as well as months and months of waiting. For an excerpt of our case we put forward to ACTpla scroll through photos above and right click on the photo of a document and click “open in a new tab” to read.

If you are unsure about whether your shed needs approval just give the team a bell and ask to speak to either Nic or Mark!

PRICE GUIDE: $30,000 – $40,000*. 

WHATS INCLUDED: This project included earthworks, concrete slab, material supply, construction, and project management. The approval was handled in house by our approvals management team!

*As always, the price of a project is highly dependent on the amount of earthworks to be completed, whether services need to be run in (plumbing, stormwater and electrical) and the exact dimensions and details of the shed.
