1. Make a door mat.
This is definitely the work of someone who is very skilled (and has a lot of different colours of baling twine). Definitely a show-piece of twine mastery to work your way up to.
Find out how to make a baling twine welcome mat here.
The simplest and easiest way to make use of baling twine. Just thread it through your shoes and you’re ready to go.
Great for fixing up a broken set of laces.
3. A halter.
This is certainly one to be careful of – the twine could be too rough against your horses skin. But if you’re in emergency need of a halter and all you have is baling twine – this is a solution.
4. A hay feeder.
Grab an old barrel, remove the bottom and attach a hand-woven baling twine net.
That’s all there is to it.
5. A lead.
This one requires a bit of braiding and weaving skill, but it makes a very professional-looking lead that can be quite useful.
Definitely worth experimenting with this idea.
Complete honesty: these are not the most attractive shoes I have seen in my entire like.
But if you found yourself bare-footed in a barn with twine and hours to spare, they might be exactly what you need.
7. A woven chair.
Chairs are often woven from wicker or straw – why not do the same with baling twine? This simple pattern looks neat, tidy, and isn’t too difficult.
8. A crochet mandala mat.
Anything that can be made from rope or wool can pretty much be made from baling twine. This beautiful mat would make a very nice addition to any barn (or any home, for that matter).
These are adorable, a very nice addition to the outdoors spring decor.
Just make sure your horse doesn’t find them!
10. A hay net.
Using some simple knotting techniques, you can put together a rough hay net to suspend for your horses.
See exactly how you can do this here.

Building A Warehouse: A Case Study
Many of our clients who are considering building find it useful to see a previous project to understand the process.
Below, we look at the construction of a large warehouse in Daylesford, which was erected in 2016 and is currently leased out to commercial tenants.
Our client planned on building an 80 x 30 x 6.5 metre warehouse in Daylesford. He intended to lease the space to commercial clients to operate a business out of.
He also had previous experience building for the purpose of renting to local business, so had a strong understand of the demand for warehouse space.
DESIGNING THE BUILDING
In order to meet the requirement of commercial operations, our client worked closely with our engineers to ensure the building would hold up to robust commercial use. This including strengthening structural component and ensuring that the wall could bear a load if they were required to.
Give the size of this project, the total cost came between $340,000 and $360,000.
Approximately $270,000 of this cost when to the kit itself (the components of the steel structure). And additional $72,000 went towards the erection of the building.
THE FINISHED PROJECT
The project was erected without a problem, and is now fully functional with reliable tenants operating a business from the site.
See images of the project below, including aerial drone footage.
