Is it time for a new shed?
A shed is a great idea when you need storage space or versatility in your backyard, farm or commercial premises. They can reduce clutter in your home and yard, give you room for work or play, and add value to your home or property. They also provide a safe place for storing hazardous chemicals and materials that you don’t want children or pets to be able to access. Plus, they can make your outdoor area look neat, organised and attractive.
Your choices for sheds are almost unlimited. There are a wide range of prefabricated sheds and shed kits available in the Toowoomba and Brisbane area – or you could choose a custom-built shed. But whether you’re looking to build a garden shed, a farm shed, an industrial shed or a custom shed, we can help.
What is the process of building a shed?
A shed build can be an involved process. You’ll need to:
- Draft plans for the shed
- Mark out the area
- Excavate and prepare the hole for the slab
- Install a boundary around the hole and pour and compact the base
- Construct and install the shed frame
- Install the roof and doors/windows
- Connect power to the shed if desired
You’ll need a variety of tools and equipment for this task, including an excavator, compactor, concrete pourer and removal truck.
Is it better to do a DIY shed build or hire a professional?
With so much home renovation advice floating around these days, it can be easy to assume that you can build a shed yourself. However, while shed builds can be relatively straightforward, there are often valid reasons why it’s better to hire a professional. It’s a big job, and you’ll need specialised tools, equipment, knowledge – and help. Not to mention enough time to get it correct. If it’s not something you have any experience with, you’re probably better off leaving it to the experts. A shed build is something you need to get right, not hurry through and skimp on the process. You’ll achieve a better outcome when the job is done by someone with experience and industry know-how. They can make sure the shed is correctly built so that it lasts for many years – and save you time and money in the process.
