Not laying a solid foundation
This is an absolute must – if you don’t put some time into making sure your foundations will last as long as your shed, you’ll run into trouble. Heavy winds can tear sheds out of the ground if they aren’t built on proper foundations.
Not securing a permit
It’s an inconvenient truth that any type of building activity needs to be checked with your local council. There are heaps of different kinds of permits required for different activities, so you’ll need to give them a call before you even start planning.
Not considering the location
There are a couple of things to keep in mind when choosing your shed location. Can you easily access the shed? Will trees or bushes grow to make access difficult? Have you placed your shed under a tree that drops a lot of fruit or leaves? Does your shed capture evening sunlight (this can be terrible in the peak of summer and make the shed unusable).
Not considering weather
This is mostly important when you’re choosing your building materials. If you’re looking at a wooden shed, weathering is a big factor. Swelling and deterioration for wooden sheds is common.
Not considering maintenance costs
It’s an easy one to forget, but the material you choose will change how much effort does into your shed down the line. Metal sheds; almost no maintenance. Wooden sheds; maintenance every 4-5 years.
We take care of permits, install proper foundations and use only the best Australian steel. To see some of our shed builds, take a look at the gallery.
Watch this herd of wild horses being released into the wild
This incredible video shows a herd of captive horses being released back into the wild. A very rare sight (and a beautiful one, too).

Horse’s Unexpected Favourite Flavour
A taste testing session involving eight equine tasters was conducted to discover which flavour was their favourite.
A collection of flavours were mixed in with regular pellets of cereal meal to see which flavour the horses would eat most of.
The most popular flavour: Fenugreek.
This was closely followed by banana as a close number two.
A full list of the horse taster’s preference is below:
Favourite – Fenugreek
