User Friendly Design

Designed by an engineer who has personally built well over 100 sheds, and in doing so, worked out the best way to design sheds that are user-friendly to build. We have used our experience from building sheds, to gradually refine our shed kits, making them easier to build. The end result of this refinement is a shed kit that is marginally harder to make, but much quicker to build.

Easier to Assemble, “Like Lego”

It is essential for businesses to have a goal. We decided that ours would be to make sheds that are easier to assemble on site. Putting more emphasis and care into the manufacturing phase reduces mistakes and results in less time spent on site.

What Makes Our Shed Kits Easier to Assemble?

Our shed kits use bolted connections instead of tek screws, even on our smaller sheds. We do still use teks for sheeting, to ensure that they are watertight.

  • Largely Bolted together
  • Purlins bolted to rafters
  • Girts bolted to columns
  • Less reliance on teks holding the structure together
  • Bolt holes are pre-punched, minimising the need for constant measuring and reducing mistakes
