Garden structures such as sheds and wendy houses do not have to be unsightly.

I am just going to post a few pictures of things in the garden including a wooden shed or two so that you can get a few good ideas.

Here is a small wooden shed that I built for a step-by-step book on garden structures.

  2. Hi Sikhalo,
    We do not do any Certificates at all. You need to contact the NHBRC directly. All the contact details are on the website here: NHBRC

  3. Hi, do one need any plans to put up a Wendy House in my Garden? Many people have mentioned that I need to get plans from Municipality, I am in Pietermaritzburg and it would be used for storage in my back garden.

    Thank you!

  4. Hi Pauline, Most municipalities in SA only require a written notification that you intend to erect a garden shed that will be considered “minor building work” Do keep a record/or copy of the letter as proof that you complied with the bye-laws.

  5. hi, I want to enhance my landscaping by adding 6 lattice screens, there will be fastened to the existing boundary wall (on my side of the wall) – the intention is that these screens will be covered by plants and other greenery over time…

    on my side on the fence these screens measure 2.5m – do I need building plans for this ?

  6. Any form of wall or fence over 1.8 m requires plans.

  7. Hello

    I would like to build a workshop (2m x 3m) with a table and all my tools (drill, saws, etc). Would I need plans for this? It will definitely have windows and a door, but not intended for human living.

    I just want a space to do my hobbies (carpentry, woodwork, etc). I’m in Sandton.

  8. Yes you will need plans.

  9. Good day!

    I wish to put up some 1 and 2 bedroom wooden houses (Wendy houses) on the Bluff, Durban. Anyone have any info on contacts etc please?

  10. Unfortunately not. Please be aware that you will need approved plans

    I want to close up my patio to make a study area – Do i need plans to close it up.
    I submitted plans to put in the patio of 14sqm which was approved before I built up the patio.

  12. If your approved plans include the patio, you don’t need new plans. Just be sure to follow them. If you want to make changes to the approved plans, you can submit a “built as” rider to the plans.

  13. I would like to build a closed patio which will be separate from the house. Do I need a plan and approval?

  14. Not for the patio but you will need plans for walls or any form of enclosure and roof.
