Fitting A Horse Arena Into An Existing Garden
We pride ourselves in making sturdy, reliable structures that will match all of your needs and your expectations. We often build structures in areas that are already very beautiful spaces and part of what we do it working out the best way to make our structure fit in.
We visited a client recently to check up on their riding arena. The beautiful plants and greenery were already there when we installed this project. We planned around them and tried to install the building in a way that made use of them.
It came out fantastically, and the building and plants look like they had always been planned together. It’s always a pleasure to see a building look as great as this.
5 Mistakes To Avoid When Building A Shed or Garage
Hiring a company that doesn’t deal with building permits.
One of the first questions you should ask is ‘Do you handle permits?’ Hiring a company that leaves this up to you will leave you vulnerable to council regulations that you won’t see coming.
Overlooking frame thickness.
The thickness of the steel in your shed or garage is an important thing to take note of. Cheaper shed companies will use thin C-shaped steel that it more likely to be damaged by severe weather. Look for a company that offers RHS frames, which are thicker, stronger, and enclosed all the way around.
Buying a shed kit.
Shed kits are often fine, but it’s best to find a company that is able to adjust the needs to your shed depending on the location you decide to build.
A really good shed is built specifically for the location it will end up.
Building too small.
Storage space always takes up more room than you expect. If any part of your shed or garage is going to be used for storage, immediately increase the allocated storage room by about 50%.
If you’re hiring a shed builder, their experience is crucial. If they’ve built sheds before, they’ll know the different options, costs & factors. They’ll also have a good idea of what people end up appreciating about a shed – the small things that inexperienced builders overlook.
