Q. How high and/or close can I build to a boundary?

A. The residential building code covers this. The attached guide HERE is a useful reference. Other siting assessments include consideration for overshadowing, neighboring habitable windows and 'open space'. 

Q. Do we use cheap imported steel for our building kits?

A. No, our chosen suppliers only use materials and components that meet or exceed to the relevant Australian standards. 

Q.. $$$ How Much will a Garage or Shed Cost?

A. The costs of each building kit/project will vary, subject to the dimensions and features of the building you require. Our business is focussed on understanding each customers requirements, which enables us to custom quote your building kit & Project. From experience we know we have a competitive pricing structure for our heavy duty, structurally engineered buildings.

Contact us HERE with detail of your requirements for a no obligation quote on your custom shed or garage.

Q. How long does a garage project take?

A. All of our building kits are made to order, and have a production lead time of 15-20 work days from date of order.

So an Owner Builder/self install kit would be available to deliver to customer site in 4 weeks.

Where a full Project is provided by Gippsland Garages and Sheds (Planning & Building permit assessment and issue, concrete preparation & readiness), project timing will vary subject to specific site circumstances, and also the impact of inclement weather.

For example, recent projects have been completed from between 35-55 work days. Contact us to discuss your ideas. We will be able to estimate a project lead time based on your site conditions, & custom building requirements.

Hi Gavin

We came down the island today and are very impressed with the new garage. The light inside from the skylight and window is brilliant.

Thanks for all your quality work and for all the photos you have sent during the construction period.

We went ahead with using Gavin from Gippsland Garages & Sheds as they are a local business and they offered a fair price. Every face to face discussion we had was very informative and always professional.

Many thanks Gavin. 

I’m really pleased with the shed and your skilful assembly of the same. Wishing you all the very best and thanks for such professional service. We will recommend you over and over again!

Dear Gavin,

I am very pleased with the finished garage, it is exactly what I asked for. It has been a pleasure doing business with you and if in future I needed to build any similar building I would not hesitate to engage your services again.Thankyou for a well done job and keeping us advised at all stages of the build.

“When we wanted to get a new garage at our house on Phillip Island we spoke to a few companies. Gavin Dobson at Gippsland Garages & Sheds was an easy choice. Gavin was quick to respond and understood our requirements. The garage needed to be custom designed to fit a boat, and Gavin worked with us on design options. Once our design was finalised Gavin gave us great advice on the permits we needed. The job was done on time, and at a very reasonable price. A great garage, which was very well built"

Cheers, Paul , Ventnor Phillip Island.
