    I shopped around and mid last year installed 2 large ranch sliders (one is a stacker), one 2m x 2m window and two smaller windows. $9k delivered (not installed). Christchurch. We tried the TM route but couldn't get anything the right sizes - non standard house. I also found that TM was really expensive, our stacker was cheaper than a second hand one on TM!

Does anyone know if consents are required?
    i would say you will need a LBP to do the work with consent

    According to this leaflet, consent is not required even if less than one metre from boundary. It would pay to check this and confirm. Getting consent is such a hassle and time-consuming.

    I checked with council the other day about the new exemption for a freestanding single carport. I asked if I needed building consent if I installed more than one carport at the same time, but still keeping them separated. The building helpdesk said I may need resource consent (if exceeding coverage rules etc, which I know I'm not) but not building consent. YAY!
