RURAL AND FARM SHEDS
We really love our Big Red Shed!
Thanks for all your efforts and a great final result. You really listened to what we wanted.....and gave us something better than even I imagined.
Whether it’s a shed, garage, carport or patio you are after, we believe they should be an investment, and not a cost, to your home or property. Over the 14 + years we have been supplying steel buildings on the Gold Coast and Brisbane, we have had the privilege of helping many people with something that suits their specific needs, not just a ‘one size fits all’ type structure.
Q. What is the One Thing You Need to Know before buying a Shed -
This is the number one question you need to answer.
You need to work out what is main purpose of the shed. Actually, will your shed serve one purpose or is it a multi-purpose building. Once you work out what the shed is for, or what problem it solves for you, the details can be easily worked out.
Things such as:
Size – Based on your needs and size of your property, determine the width, length and height of your shed. Just as a sidenote, we have never had a customer say to us that the shed they ordered was too big. But we have had people come to us saying that they need to extend the shed or buy another shed. So the lesson is, make sure your shed has enough space for you to work in.
Layout – Where do you want the doors, windows etc. placed, do you need an awning on one or both sides. Do you need any internal walls.
Some valuable additions are: Roller Doors, PA (Personal Access) Doors, Windows, Whirly Birds, Roof Insulation, Wall Insulation.
Other important questions are:
Do I need council approval and what can I get approved?
In most cases the answer will be yes. It’s always advisable to either talk with your local council or call a local building certifier or surveyor to find out.
Is quality important to me?
Just ask yourself, do I want a quality shed. Sheds are the one of the biggest investments you will buy in your lifetime. Like everything else you buy, there are differences, and predominately with sheds, you get what you pay for. The challenge is to find out what those differences are. A quality shed uses the best steel and is designed to be solid and withstand the wind and weather conditions. Is quality important to you or are you happy to settle for second best or even third best?
Here are some of the benefits and types of buildings available to you from Excalibur Steel Buildings:
You are not limited to set sizes or layouts with our range of sheds and Garages. Choose your width, length and height as well as different bay sizes. From small sheds and garages to large sheds to be used on a farm or for industrial use, we can supply it.
The full range of roller doors are there, as well as PA (personal access) doors and windows. But don’t stop there – make your shed the place to enjoy with roof and wall insulation, whirly birds as well as products such as ‘Vermaseal’ to keep out rats and vermin.
Strong Designs – With such a wide difference in quality and design of sheds currently in the industry, it is challenging sometimes for people to select the best value building for them. There are very cheap sheds out there, and to be honest, you get what you pay for with these. There are also many designs that are similar in price range, and here is where you have to get a very good comparison of what you are looking at for your own shed.
Some things to look for are: weight in steel, where the steel comes from, does it comply with BCA (Building Code of Australia), has it been engineered and passed by a structural engineer, quality of the other components (eg. roller doors etc), can you get it delivered to your door, and do you get the choice of the full range of colours.
Having been based on the Gold Coast for many years, we have helped many people achieve the best shed for their needs in the local area. As well as helping people with domestic sheds and garages, we are also a major supplier of rural sheds and large sheds to community groups such as the rural fire brigade.
