Shed's Purpose

Decide how your shed will be utilized. Will its primary purpose be for use as a workshop, a crafting room, a rumpus room or something else? Do you need a shed with double doors for storing large equipment? What about customized storage racks or shelving?

If you will be spending a lot of time in your shed, consider heating and ventilation needs to make your shed a more practical workspace. As well as Lighting options, both electrical and natural (Skylights, Windows).

Shed Sizes & Designs

Sheds are available in a wide variety of LARGER sizes and designs. We do not build small sheds such as garden sheds.

Before you design a shed, you will need to determine what size shed best fits your needs.

What will be the minimum width & height if you are planning on housing a boat or caravan for instance. There may even be a local covenant that may limit the size of your shed. Having a member of our highly experienced staff guide you through this process can take the stress out of figuring out the logistics when building a shed.

Foundation requirements

The type of foundation you need will depend on where you live, type of soil, the size of your shed and how it will be used. As well as local building and council requirements. If done incorrectly a poorly laid slab can lead to serious problems in the future for your sheds foundations.

Leading to structural issues and a shorter lifespan for your shed. With a fully qualified construction team and properly engineered plans, you can rest easy knowing a shed from Superior Garages & Industrials will never have these issues.
