Building a Shed Home is a great alternative to a traditional home if you live on the Sunshine Coast. At The Shed House, we use an engineered steel framing system to construct all of our Shed Homes, which allows for greater diversity in design and layout. Traditional houses are restricted by their building materials, but our Shed Homes offer opportunity to design extensive open floor plans and high raked ceilings to take advantage of the natural light and fresh sea breeze of the Sunshine Coast area.
The Sunshine Coast is thriving, and many residents are looking to build a Shed Home, Granny Flat or Home Studio to accommodate their family members, visiting friends and relatives, or to earn a little extra income. Contact us to find out how easy it is to add a Shed Home to your Sunshine Coast property and start reaping the benefits now!

Our Shed Homes are built for comfort, just like any traditional home. We ensure all our Shed Homes are well ventilated and fully insulated to beat the Sunshine Coast heat and reduce the need for artificial temperature control.
Is a Shed Home environmentally friendly?
Yes! At The Shed House, we believe in creating energy-efficient, eco-friendly Shed Homes. Our buildings employ fundamental passive design strategies which aim to maximise the benefit of natural heating and cooling. The Shed House team also specialise suspended flooring systems, which means your Shed Home will have significantly less impact on the land than building on a concrete slab.

A steel frame makes your building stronger and resistant to termite damage and wet rot over time. We build all our Shed Homes using an engineered steel framing system which will stand the test of time in the tough Australian climate.
