    I'm planning to build a miniature temple in the back yard for a Residential A property, nothing religious.

    Like 2 metres in height (maximum). but probably not even that.

    I think it will add value to the property because it would make it unique as no one else would have one.

    I've done up some sketches and crutches some numbers in excel.

    Q. Do you think it will work?
    Q. Are there any BCC rules that prevent me from assembling it?
    Anyone with previous experience in doing this? any tips?

    Have you considered a miniature volcano? They tend to add more value.

    I think that would be a fire hazard... I don't think it would add value also how would you get lava?

    I think you should build it out of Lego then you don't need council permission

    You could just put a Kmart heater in the middle.

    Yes, I think it'll also add lots of depreciation

    Number rule when planning to build a temple is that it must be in the front yard! Have you never built a temple before?? :rolleyes:

    Are you going to sacrifice virgins in your backyard or something?

    Ha! This must be a big backyard for you to take up precious space with a temple....

    Hard pressed to find any virgins in that area.

    Provided that the temple meets the guidelines for a cubby house or compliant outbuildings, it may not require council approval but siting on your block must be strictly in accordance with AS/NZS 666 -4BC: Construction of Deity Worshipping Temples & other non-Denominational Structures.

    A poorly sited temple may invoke the wrath of a god or goddess unintentionally.

    Unless you plan on sacrificing goats etc which may attract a crowd and require a traffic impact statement, it should be fine.

    I would also be wary of installing any underground chambers and calling them a bomb shelter, doomsday room or the like.

    These would be capital works so an update to your depreciation schedule is warranted.

    @fullylucky if your doing this to add value to the property, i would suggest you dont waste your time and money on it. If its for fun, then go ahead.

    Yeah pretty big. But i think you guys missed the OP... it's a miniature temple! No one can actually fit inside. Not bomb shelter or anything like that. Private only not open to crowds.

    Can you actually look at the design and give honest feedback?

    My concern is that the dwarvish community & the vertically challenged will be grateful for a temple in a scale which matches their needs but are prevented from using it.
