Building Sizes

We specialise in plans from 8m² to 100m².

Under 10m² - sleepouts, garden sheds, generally don't require building consent.

Over 10m² - serviced cabins, granny flats, baches, garages and workshops generally do require Building consent.
In these cases we provide Building Consent plans and specifications separately from our standard SmartPLANZ package.

Building Styles

We have a large range of standard building styles available as both non-consentable and consentable designs.

These include Single level and Loft or mezzanine styles.

We can also design based on a new or interesting style you may want.
Styles can incorporate most readily available cladding materials.

See: Sleepouts and Cabins, Loft Cabins, Granny Flats and Baches, Garden Sheds, Garages and Workshops .

Under 10m²|
There are a number of standard floor plans, particulary for the under 10m² buildings. These can all be customised to best suit your specific site and living requirements.
See:  Custom Design .

Over 10m²
Plans are generally site-specific designed, and our on-line design forms can be filled out to get an obligation-free quotation for your general requirements.

Custom Design
In addition we have Design Packs that can be emailed out for those wanting more detailed design quotations.
See: Contact Us


Our unique Plans Package includes full manufacturing and assembly drawings and instructions, plus schedules for all materials that can be presented to suppliers.
Prior to ordering we will have provided a fixed quotation for providing your SmartPLANZ package (and Building Consent Plans if required).

With this quote we include close Estimates of all material prices you can expect to source locally for your DIY Smart Kitset build, as well as Estimates for supply of a Builders Kitset provided by a local builder.
See: SmartPLANZ Plans


There are three steps in making your kitset - sourcing materials, making pre-assembly items, assembling on-site.

These are the typical ways owners can build their project:

a) DIY Smart Kitset - This is the most economic. Owners source local materials, build their own pre-assembly kit and then site-assemble. (They may use a labour-only builder they know)

b) A local builder provides pre-assembed items and other materials for owner or other builder on-site assembly.

c) A local builder provides all materials and does on-site assembly to completion.


Frame 400

SmartPLANZ plan packages - including Building Consent plans - are available for any location in New Zealand.

We can put owners in touch with local builders in many areas, but as they are totally independent of SmartPLANZ we can't guarantee their availablity for at any given time.

As Kitsets are designed using common building materials, materials will generally be available from local merchants, either off-the shelf or on a few days notice. The exceptions to this time frame are Doors and Windows, which generally require a 3-5 week lead time.

Typically we will provide a Preliminary Design Plan for your approval togethether with firm Quotation for the Plans package.
We will generally show Estimates of expected local materials and local Builder kit costs.
We require a deposit  to confirm your order and balance payment on completion of Plan package.

SmartPLANZ can be ordered at any time, lead times are generally
2- 4 weeks.

Note that if Building Consents are required Council processing times can be 3 weeks to 3 months.
