Design Your Own Shed – Fair Dinkum Sheds

Let’s face it, guys love their sheds. Whether you need a small shed for keeping your tools or gardening supplies, a pool shed, a shed to double as a garage, or even as a dedicated Man-Cave in your backyard, having a great shed is a sheer pleasure for guys from all walks of life and at all ages.  What’s even better is that with Lockyer Sheds, you can design your own shed to your unique specifications.

Why Do I Need a Shed?

Sheds are for so much more than simple storage. They can be a valuable extension of your home (or workplace) and your lifestyle. With a shed, a man can create his own private space, have a place to hang out with his mates (Hello, bar fridge and big, flat-screen TV!), and keep all the stuff his partner doesn’t really want in the house (or which won’t fit in the house).

A guy can make a shed his workshop or hobby place, using it for everything from home brewing to boat building; setting up a home gym to growing hothouse plants; crafting to gaming. Your foosball table or pool table might be right at home in your shed!

A shed can also be a place from which to operate a home-based business, and a great shed can significantly increase your property’s value in the long term.

Sheds are also ideal for storage and security. Even a small shed can fit a lot of stuff – you’ll know it’s safe from the elements and secure, yet out of the way.

Custom sheds can be created for a vast array of applications, including but not limited to:

  • Garages
  • Carports
  • Farm sheds and Arenas
  • Equine sheds / Horse Shelters / Stables
  • American and Oz Barns
  • Industrial Sheds
  • Commercial sheds
  • Storage Sheds
  • Pool sheds
  • Garden Sheds
  • Workshops
  • Man caves
  • Small Shed to be used as a Kids Cubby House

As you can see, the applications for a shed are almost unlimited and no two custom sheds are going to be exactly alike. But what if you have a definite idea about what you want your shed to look like?

Fortunately, Lockyer Sheds is here to make the process of customising Fair Dinkum Sheds to your own individual requirements – we bring your vision to life, no matter how large or small it may be!

No-one wants to overcapitalise, everyone wants to make financially sensible, business savvy decisions and if expansion means extending or building new structures, it’s safe to say that you want them to be functional and of the highest quality.

Steel for Australian Built Sheds

Our harsh Queensland climate means that we should always wear a hat and sunscreen, we should avoid being on the beach at the hottest time of day, we should remember to drink lots of water on a hot Summer’s day – and that our buildings should be constructed with materials specifically designed to withstand our extreme weather conditions… That’s where Bluescope Steel and Colorbond come in.

Colorbond, Galvaspan and Zincalume are all brands/types of steel that sit under the BlueScope Steel banner. They are well known throughout the construction industry as consistently being at the top of their game, being manufactured to the highest quality and being designed to endure Australia’s harsh conditions.

Colorbond steel is lightweight and durable. It comes in a large variety of colours and designs, is easily maintained, is recyclable and affordable – all of these factors assist in making it the perfect material for shed, garage and single or double carport construction.

From a small backyard shed for storing tools and the lawnmower to an expansive structure for farming or other commercial uses, designing, installing and constructing a shed is a cost-effective way to add value to your property with a versatile, protected, lockable, usable space. Not only does colorbond add to the structures durability – it also has the power to add wow factor.

If you’re in need of extra storage space, a versatile work space, a stable solution or even just a simple backyard lock up and are considering installing a shed, garage or carport in the Toowoomba, Gatton, Warwick or Lockyer Valley areas, contact the Lockyer Valley Sheds team today!

Lockyer Valley Sheds use Colorbond steel on all of their builds to ensure the highest quality and are eager to build you a colorbond shed, garage or carport that will stand the test of time and survive our often erratic Queensland climate.
