Building Footprint: - 4.5M x 2.6M=(12M²

Small, compact sleep-outs under 12 sqm are the perfect solution for those looking to add an extra room or office space to their home without needing a building consent. These small spaces can be used as a home office, guest bedroom or student sleep-out and offer all the comforts of a larger space in just 12 square metres.
The great thing about these small sleep-outs is that they don’t require any planning permission from local authorities due to their size and so can be built quickly with minimal disruption. They also provide excellent insulation due to their smaller area which helps keep energy costs down when heating them during winter months. Furthermore, because of its diminutive size it requires very little furniture making it easier on your wallet too!
Finally, these tiny homes come with many advantages such as being able to move them if you decide you want your living arrangement somewhere else - something not possible with traditional buildings requiring planning permission! All in all this makes small compact sleep-outs under 12 sqm the perfect addition for anyone wanting an extra room without having worry about dealing with paperwork or bureaucracy associated with bigger projects – giving you peace of mind knowing that everything has been taken care off quickly and easily!

Buildings exempt from local authority Building Consents

Non consentable buildings / buildings exempt from building consents.

August 2020, additional building consent exemptions have been added to the Building Act. Building consents are no longer be needed for a number of new or expanded types of low-risk building work, like sleep-outs. Building work that does not require a building consent must still comply with the Building Code and other legislative requirements, such as those under the Resource Management Act 1991, the Electricity Act 1992 and the Health and Safety at Work Act 2015.
Any issues related to planning or resource management, or any projects with district planning implications will still need to be discussed with your local council.

Before carrying out exempt work, it's important you follow the MBIE guidance correctly.
Small cabins can serve as sleep-outs, extra rooms, storage facilities, hobby room, temporary staff accommodation or simple just a storage space.
The unit example is a simple space but offers a little flexibility in joinery units, roof pitch, outdoor living area?
