Regulations depend on a number of things, including the height of the shed and the purpose the shed is being used for.
Below are some common situations:
Backyard sheds need to be 15 centimetres from the boundary unless they are over 3.6 metres high.
Sheds above this height need to be 1 metre from the boundary/fence. This distance increases with the height of the shed.
Farm sheds (like hay sheds & machinery sheds) need to be 5 metres from the boundary.
The shed must also be at least 100 metres from any highways, if they happen to be nearby. They must also be 20 metres from any other road.
Central Steel Build handles all permits and regulations internally, so you can focus on more important things. For a quote, click here.
A Compilation of our Drone Footage
We’ve put together a collection of the best & most impressive drone shots we’ve taken over the past year.
Take a look at the footage below:
Can thoroughbreds do dressage?
Almost any kind of horse can perform well in dressage if they have natural ability, good training and a skilled rider. However, some kinds of horses will bring different challenges for dressage riders to overcome.
Can thoroughbreds do dressage?
Simple answer: Yes, look for a relaxed thoroughbred.
Long answer: OTTB (Of the track thoroughbred) horses are often considered unsuited to dressage. There are biases against them because of the experiences these horses have in racing.
Some of them can be too tense for dressage, but assuming that all OTTB horses aren’t appropriate can cause you to overlook some very, very excellent dressage horses for potentially very low prices comparatively.
Resale needs to be a consideration; people looking to buy eventing horses are sometimes put off knowing they are thoroughbred. However, if you dedicate yourself to the horse and perform well in your dressage career, your horse’s performance will speak for itself.
Can standardbreds do dressage?
Simple answer: Yes, their spring and energy can be a positive.
Long answer: Standardbreds are often used in harness racing and are taught to have long trots. This is the opposite of what we want in dressage; a nice, collected canter. So the biggest challenge with an off the track standardbred will be getting it to relax into a canter.
On the other hand, standardbreds have a lot of spring and energy, which results in excellent stepping.
It is uncommon to see standardbreds in dressage, so you’re likely to meet the same aversion when reselling as you would with a thoroughbred.
Can Clydesdales do dressage?
Simple answer: Clydesdales can do lower level dressage, but struggle to compete at top levels.
Long answer: Clydesdales are able to perform at lower level dressage and will benefit from it just like any other horse.
However, Clydesdales have been bred to be strong and thick, for their pulling power. This prevents them from the agility and detail that is required of horses competing in higher levels of dressage.
If you’re aiming to go to the top, you should avoid riding a Clydesdale, but if dressage is a passionate hobby, they will do fine. They may even outperform other horses in the earlier stages because of their steadiness, and may be more forgiving for less experienced riders.
What is the optimal dressage horse?
Simple answer: Andalusian, Warmblood, Hanoverian, Lusitano, Oldenburg, Westphalian.
Long answer: The breeds above were the most popular horses used in dressage at the 2008 Olympics.
They are chosen because of their naturally good conformation and their ability to learn and adapt to the tasks that dressage require of a horse.
