Shed VS Shed House VS Traditional Home – Is There A Difference?

Yes, it may be surprising to learn that there is in fact a very big difference between shed, shed house and a traditional home. What this comes down to is the class of building. For residential purposes, there are to main building classifications.

  1. Class 10a. A class 10a building will be a shed, which is non habitable. 
  2. Class 1a. A class 1a building may have many different names, such as a home, a granny flat and yes, a shed house.

Any building that is designed to be habitable.
While a shed home may look similar to a shed from the outside, and be built from steel framing as well, the addition of a kitchen and/or a bathroom will be the biggest difference between the two.
