The establishment of an outdoor room is growing in popularity as Aussies love to entertain outside. Totally Outdoors is at the forefront of understanding what is a Modern Aussie Outdoor Room.

Outdoor rooms are often open plan with some walls or screen areas to create privacy or control weather. The outdoor room may well be accommodating a kitchen or BBQ cooking area, outdoor dining, lounge, TV and room for other outdoor activities. They can be attached or detached from your dwelling, frankly the options are endless.

Our Process  

We are very aware that clients want their projects built as quickly as possible once they decide to go ahead. Certainly, all the Staff at Totally Outdoors undertake to do their best to make the period from contract to completion as smooth and prompt as possible.

Under normal circumstances project lead-time from deposit and stage payments paid, when requested, to installation start date is between 7 – 8 weeks to allow for preparation of (1) plans, application for standard (2) building permits, material order and delivery and start of installation.

General Notes & Reminders:
There is a min 7 days “cooling off period” required by law from signing of any agreement and deposit paid prior to a builder being allowed by law to incur any costs or commencing any works related to a building agreement.

(1) Clients are required to supply house plans for their site for plan process to begin. These can be obtained from their local council with standard lead time from 1 – 2 weeks. Obtaining your plans early will assist with our process.
(2) Standard Plan & permit service as included in all installed quotations unless otherwise noted. – (Refer DIY section for Kit only sales procedures)

Do I need a Building Permit?  

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 clients are faced when obtaining quotes for their project.

We hear many clients saying "Some builders say this", "some say that", "the other 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 requesting removal of my project or have problems when I come to sell? What is an owner builder?

These are the Facts!!

Building Permits - Simply most structural building projects do require a Building Permit. Dependant upon your (2) local council a further Planning Permit (this is not a building permit) and possibly other approvals beyond the standard Building Permit may be required. This may be because your project does not conform to local council overlay or other standard government building codes or requirement. For example - 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 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.

Owner Builder - simply put this means you are the builder. This carries all the same responsibilities including safety and insurance that 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 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 to appear cheap.

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

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

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

Why should I get a Permit?
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, carried out required inspections and all your warranties are valid.
(Note: Failure to have a building permit can result in the need to remove, modify and undergo expensive compliance requirements).

Peace of Mind
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 requirements. This provides you the peace of mind and the best possible advice once we understand your project and property.
