Start with an engineering-certified Class 1A (habitable) flatpack steel building kit as the easy and economical way to complete DIY-exempt building projects (eg: workshop, storage room, art studio) or compliant owner-builder projects (eg: office, rumpus, guest cabin, granny flat, tiny house, residence) almost anywhere in VIC, NSW, ACT, SE QLD.

Choose from the full range of Colorbond© corrugated-profile colours; square-profiled Bonville steel cladding available in some areas. Prefer timber cladding or another alternative? Replace one wall as a feature, or use custom cladding on all external walls.

When you’ve chosen your flatpack steel building kit, enhance outdoor living by adding a deck and veranda, just a deck, or just a veranda. Make it 1.5m-wide or 2m-wide for the full length of your building, country style, or shorter, like a porch. These kits contain the steel framing (and roofing for a veranda) and fixings. Add your own footings or steel piers from our range. Add your own decking (eg: timber or engineered wood) and balustrades if required.

Match your deck and veranda kit to your building with a choice of colours for your guttering, barges, and underoof sheeting. You might also like a custom Colorbond© roof colour to match your main roof, if you’ve opted for a custom roof colour instead of Zincalume©.

Modular flatpack double-glazed windows, sliding doors, and stacker doors for delivery almost anywhere in Australia. Awning-style windows help keep out the rain, used individually or stacked into vertical or horizontal combinations, and double-glazing helps to achieve energy efficiency. Choose from colours with options like flyscreens and frosting. You can also buy doors and windows from anywhere and we can supply the steel lintel for your openings.

Flatpack construction extras

Choose from our range of construction extras and custom options for your flatpack building project. Steel foundation piers in varying lengths with recommended bundles for each flatpack building or deck kit; or use steel skids for portability. Internal dividing wall frames for your interior layout, and internal wall-lining kits with noggins and fixings to help attach plasterboard or other lining. Custom roof colours, handy gadgets, and more.
