Got an afternoon spare and some old horse shoes lying around?
We’ve collected some clever, easy-to-do projects that recycle horse shoes.
Although some require welding, many require nothing but nails & glue. See the photos below:
What’s The Difference Between RHS and C-Section Columns?
Sheds are built from different kinds of steel columns, each with their benefits and disadvantages.
C-Section Columns: Weaker & Cheaper
‘C-Section’ refers to the shape of the steel, which has three sides and forms a C shape.
This form of column is weaker than others, though also results in a cheaper project cost.
Because of the known difficulties that arise from C Section (including load stress, high winds and construction problem), we always suggest avoiding this option.
RHS Columns: Stronger & More Costly.
RHS (whichs stands for Rectangular Hollow Section) is a fully enclosed steel column with four sides. The is also thicker than C Section, giving it much more structural strength.
Building a shed with RHS means the shed will last longer, will withstand heavier loads and stresses, and can be built onto if you decide to extend.
Building Grain Sheds for Riordan Grain in Lara, Geelong
These enormous grain sheds are part of a $20 million dollars project for Riordan Grain in Lara, Geelong.
The structures allow transport vehicles to drive in, load up and ship Riordan’s product out. An excellent project on an impressive scale.
Take a look at the photos below, and a short testimonial with Jim Riordan, below:
