When designing your outdoor project our louvre \"open and closed\" projects provide total control over the amount of light, sun and shade. You can dial in\n light and shade required or protect the area and your contents (furniture, animals and other externally stored items) from adverse weather conditions.

", "Do I need a Building Permit?": "

\n

At Totally Outdoors most if not all our installation quotes will include a standard building permit however we know this is a confusing area that many\n clients are faced when obtaining quotes for their project.

We hear many clients saying \"Some builders say this\", \"some say that\", \"the other\n builder said we didn't need a permit\", \"I was told I can be \"an owner builder\" etc. etc. What are the facts as I don't want the council around later\n requesting removal of my project or have problems when I come to sell? What is an owner builder?

\n

These are the Facts!!

\n

Building Permits - Simply most structural building projects do require a Building Permit. Dependant upon your (2) local council a further\n Planning Permit (this is not a building permit) and possibly other approvals beyond the standard Building Permit may be required.\n This may be because your project does not conform to local council overlay or other standard government building codes or requirement. For example\n - issue may also relate to location, size or visual impact of your proposed project. All permits are site specific so must be checked against your\n property and other covenants and agreements that you have already agreed to, some of which are in your section 32 of your original property purchase.

\n

Owner Builder - simply put this means you are the builder. This carries all the same responsibilities including safety and insurance that\n for example a registered builder needs to provide in regards to your project. So when a contractor asks you to be the \"Owner Builder\" you are accepting\n that role. Often this is done when a builder is unregistered and therefore unable to apply or enter into contracts that exceed $5,000 or just wants\n to appear cheap.

\n

Our suggestion before you build:\n
Enquire if you need a building permit and about being an owner builder by following the link below to Victorian Building Authority or\n call 1300 815 127, you may be surprised at what you weren't advised.\n \"Victorian\n \n

\n

Alternatively, contact your local council’s building or planning department or a licensed Building Surveyor to ensure you're getting the right advice concerning\n your liability in getting a building project completed without the minimum building permits required.

\n

When contacting your council (or Victorian Building Authority) the simple question might be: “I'm proposing to build a \"roofed verandah\"\n (or carport etc - advising the use, location, size and style will assist council staff with providing appropriate advice), will I need a building permit\n and will I need a planning permit?\n
(Note: We suggest your council might be the best source to check on any planning permit requirements).\n

\n

Why should I get a Permit?\n
The facts are by ensuring your project is permitted you have the peace of mind that an independent Building Surveyor viewed and approved the project,\n carried out required inspections and all your warranties are valid.\n
(Note: Failure to have a building permit can result in the need to remove, modify and undergo expensive compliance requirements). \n

\n

Peace of Mind\n
When you employ Totally Outdoors its simple, we will handle this process for you via The Project Centre who are extremely experienced with most council’s\n requirements. This provides you the peace of mind and the best possible advice once we understand your project and property.
