When thinking about building a shed you will have to consider the possibility of needing certain permits, so your shed can be legally constructed. For a shed there are two types of permits that you may need to obtain.
A Building permit is required for most building work. When designing and constructing a complete structure, such as a shed you will need a Building permit. The purpose of this permit is to ensure that the construction will comply with Australian Standards and that it is suitable for use. These types of permits can be obtained from any registered builder.
Not every construction requires a planning permit. These permits relate to the use and development of land. To find out if you need a planning permit you will be required to contact your local council. Each council has their own planning scheme, thus requirements for permits will vary for each council. It is up to you to find out from your council whether a Planning permit is required for the construction of your shed.
8 of the most secluded houses & structures in the world
1. Bishop Rock.
This light house is so far from shore that visitors often stayed the night and a caretaker would have lived there permanently.
The light house began construction in 1847 but was swept away by the ocean before it could be completed. It was reconstructed and completed in 1858.
2. Paro Taktsang.
A Buddhist temple built into a Himalayan mountain side, this incredible building, which would have been home to dozens of monks, was built in 1692.
The temple is 3 kilometres above sea level.
3. The Chess Pavilion.
A humble little structure built to honour the view above the clouds, this tiny little building is one of the most difficult to reach.
4. The Holy Trinity Monastery.
This Greek temple has 400 metres of steps carved out of the rock face. Reaching the building means climbing through boulders and mountains, but the location is worth it.
5. Hermitage of San Colombano.
This astounding building was built in 1319 and sits 120 metres high, built into the rock face of a valley. Imagine what the builders went through to get it up there.
6. Stockholm house.
Deep in the forests and mountains of Sweden, this is a beautiful, simple house. If you could stand the cold weather, this would be the ideal place to sit back and take it easy.
7. Drina River House.
Built by leisurely swimmer looking for a place to rest, this amazingly isolated building started from a shack and became increasingly large and detailed.
8. Cliff House.
A steel and glass structure built in the most unlikely place: the side of a cliff. The modern materials makes this sturdy and reliable.
The views from this location are like no other.
Ten of the Most Impressive Public Buildings in the World
1. The Beehive, New Zealand.
The executive wing of the New Zealand government are housed in this impressive building, which echoes Aztec towers and Roman colosseums.
2. The National Museum of African American History.
Three stories of this confronting building are above ground – another three are below ground. The dark, rusty exterior echo the contents; hard to adjust to but demanding respect.
3. The Vennesla Public library.
This excellent little house for books is situated right in the middle of the city, becoming a meeting place for civilians and a space for thought.
4. Thurgood Marshall Judiciary Building, USA.
A balance between modern and traditional, the glass update to this building reminds its occupants of the idea that progress is built on tradition.
5. Romanian Parliament, Bucharest.
One of the largest & most expensive single government building ever built.
6. Port House, Antwerp.
This strange, futuristic spaceship-like structure was built onto an existing but defunct fire station. The building now houses the local Port Authority – a collection of government offices in a surprisingly exuberant building.
7. The LiYuan Library, China.
Made of natural materials, this beautifully harmonious building has no electricity supply, so it closes at dusk, when it gets too dark to read.
8. Government House, Azerbaijan.
A slab-like castle, this is another example of a government building that aims to impose itself upon passers-by and cast an air of timelessness.
9. Finnish National Parliament, Helsinki.
This intimidating slab of a building houses the Finnish parliament. Daunting, sturdy, solid, ungiving.
10. Toyko Metropolitan Government building.
Unique because of its sheer size and lack of restraint, this building is not what you’d expect from sleepy government organisations.
