The classic Kiwi garage. For many New Zealanders, they are a staple of our lives.
Whether at home or at the batch. Whether a simple one-door slider or a three-door with a room. Whether controlled chaos or the source of ‘have you seen my…’ questions. Garages are a much-loved part of the Kiwi story.
Our team understands that for some, garages aren’t just a storage unit outback, but one of the most important rooms in the house. Because of this understanding, we are the leading provider of garages in New Zealand. Come see why.
Fit to your needs
Like most things, there shouldn’t be a one-size-fits-all approach to garages. We understand this.
Our team understands and appreciates that a garage built in the far north will have different needs from one built-in the Hawkes Bay and again in Southland.
With that in mind, KiwiSpan garages are highly customisable. Regardless of whether you require two-doors, bay dividers, windows or clear lights, KiwiSpan can provide it.

Understand your requirements
Understanding your requirements is the key to building a garage that you can be proud of.
From the moment you first get in touch to the time you start using your garage, our aim is to understand exactly what you are after and execute that. Your local licensee takes the time to know what your goals are, what type of land you have and the restrictions this may cause, and even your colours preferences.
Built for New Zealand conditions
We’re blessed with an amazing country. But, we are also blessed with some pretty extreme weather conditions. From the winterless north to the deep south, our garages are built to withstand and thrive in the varying New Zealand conditions.
Whether it is the 0.40 gauge steel we use for our roofing and cladding or the 0.55 gauge steel we use for gutters and flashings, KiwiSpan garages are built to last.
Above all else, it is your local KiwiSpan licensee and the excellent team behind them. When you decide to build your garage with KiwiSpan, you are not just buying a garage, you are buying experienced professionals, an unrivalled network, and ultimately a mate.
Our team is passionate about creating industry-leading garages that stands the test of time and meets your expectations. Our aim is to make the entire process a seamless and enjoyable experience.

From a quiet home office to an extra bedroom for teens, sleepout builds have only grown in popularity across New Zealand in recent years. These smaller spaces are a great way to add extra habitable space to your home and have the ability to increase your property’s value.
A flexible space
As a separate entity from your main house, a sleepout has a host of possibilities: a hobby room, extra storage, an art studio, a music room, a gym, a guest room, a home office and more. Whatever it is you need, you’ll have a space that’s versatile and adaptable, designed to meet your growing needs.
Boost your income
With a new space comes new opportunities; ones many Kiwis are tapping into. Using your sleepout as a short-term rental investment makes the build unquestionable value for money – an invaluable chance to increase your income.
Get building consent
Like anything, there are rules and regulations. With the help of your local KiwiSpan team, you’ll need to check you have consent before building a sleepout or cabin. This will include having your plan ready detailing:
- Dimensions of the project (height, total area)
- Location on property where the project will go
- Size of property in square metres
- Total area of your property currently covered by buildings
- Total area of your property currently covered by hard surfaces, for example, concrete or paved areas
We offer a range of stylish sleepouts and habitable sheds to suit everyone. Built with New Zealand fabricated steel, they promise strength, style and comfort.
Every one of our builds can be finished with quality insulation and aluminium joinery, ensuring full protection from harsh weather conditions.
We can help you build the sleepout of your dreams – adapting design to suit your specific needs.
Design your own or make an enquiry today.
We should note that not all KiwiSpan licensees offer habitable sheds as a service. Be sure to check with your local KiwiSpan team to understand your options – they’ll be happy to help.
Sheds have a lot more to offer than people might initially think. Improving your quality of life, they have the ability to transform your day-to-day in a number of surprising ways.
Here are just a few of the reasons it might be time to consider building a shed:
Having an outdoor storage space will automatically add value to your home. The added bonus of more space is a huge attraction to homebuyers, meaning you can enjoy the short-term benefits knowing the long-term also pays off.
Our hard-wearing, New Zealand Steel manufactured sheds provide complete protection against the elements. That means your vehicles or more expensive items won’t be ruined by moisture exposure and rust.
Build the right kind of shed and you’ll have a versatile and adaptable space that can change and grow with your lifestyle and situation. What might be a place for extra storage now may well be an art studio in five years time.
Everyone needs storage. A shed is the perfect solution for packing away Christmas decorations, toys, tools and more. Freeing up room in your living space and giving you a lockable area that can even serve to childproof your home.
We all need time to ourselves away from the hustle and bustle of family life. A shed makes room for hobbies, old and new. A workspace without distraction that allows you to work more efficiently or in a more creative way – opening the door to a whole new world of opportunities.
And these are just some of the reasons! With KiwiSpan, there are many styles of sheds to choose from, each easily adapted with our innovative 3D Shed Designer tool. You can create a model of the building you want, take walls out, add lean-tos, or rollers doors and more.
