5 steps to designing the right shed for you.

1. If you want to store boats , caravans, trailers cars etc inside your shed make sure you measure the size of what needs to go into the shed that you have now or will have in the future.

2. Make sure that you check the heights of what will go in the shed, watch out for those air conditioning units on caravans, they can add quite a bit of height. Roof racks on a 4×4?

3. When you are sure of the size you need, make that the space you have available for your shed will fit that size shed. Look out for sewer lines, easements, restrictions on proximity to
boundary fences that can all eat into the available space for your shed. Another potential issue with suburban blocks is the percentage of area on your block you are allowed to build on. Check this with your certifier or council office.

4. Colours, with 20 different Colorbond colours to choose from it is usually easy to either blend into the surroundings or coordinate your shed with your house and fences.

5. If you can afford it and have the space, go with a bigger shed than you need as most people find it to easy to fill their shed and it’s more economical to go bigger now rather than later.
