Frequently Asked Questions
Q: I don’t know what I need or where to start, can you help?
Absolutely! Our Real Aussie team are experts in helping you achieve the perfect shed design to suit your needs. We have a bunch of great, free resources to help your planning as well as our free Shed Design Consultations.
Q: Will you build my shed?
We are a national shed supplier, only building in the Shoalhaven region of NSW. However, we have a large nationwide network of builders to who we often refer our customers. If we don’t have a builder in your area, we’re happy to help you find one!
Q: Can I build my shed myself?
Absolutely! Our sheds are easy to assemble, and you do not need to be a professional to do this. We provide every customer with a construction manual and have other resources we can send you as well. We are also currently working on creating a video series on how to build our sheds. Our team are also available for you to call during your build to give you guidance.
Q: Do I need council approval?
The council regulations vary state by state and even region by region. To find out what your regulations are, we recommend a quick call to your local council to discuss what you can and can’t do before locking in a shed design.
In all areas, there are certain designs and sizes that will not require DA Approval if you build your shed within your region’s specific requirements. A quick google search of your state will give you an outline of these rules.
Q: Can I change my design if the council rejects my initial application?
When waiting for your council approval, it seems scary to lock in your design because it could be knocked back by the council. At Real Aussie, we understand that pressure, so we allow you to change your design between your engineering and manufacturing stage if you need to. This will only incur a small fee to cover the reengineering of your plans.
Q: How long until my shed is delivered?
Our normal delivery timeframe is between 7-10 weeks. However, this can change without notice due to steel shortages in the country and a sudden influx in orders. The Real Aussie customer service team will always be upfront and honest with you about delays.
Q: Do you have financing options?
We sure do! We use Brighte Personal Loans which covers you for up to $30k. You can read more about Brighte here
