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
