We’ve built thousands of sheds & many of them become habitable dwellings.
The average size shed home we build is 26 x 9 x 3.3 metres and costs $71,980.
These costs cover the design and erection of the frame. For a more detailed break-down of what this involves, read through a costings sheet.

The 9 Fastest Horse Breeds
Different breeds of horses are bred for different uses, some for agricultural work, some for riding and some are bred simply for extreme speed. A fast horse can come from any breed, however certain breeds of horse have the ability to produce consistently powerful and fast animals with a determination to run hard. Here are the nine most lightening fast horse breeds in the world.
This horse breed is known for its ability in racing mid-length distances. The thoroughbred horse has an athletic build which contributes to their overall speed. They also have a hot blooded temperament which makes them suited for racing and they are extremely competitive.
For sprinting speeds the Quarter Horse is the fastest breed in the world. Some horses from this breed have exceeded speeds of 55 miles per hour and above over a quarter mile distance.
The Arabian horse is best known for their excellence in endurance racing. When racing distances of over 50 miles or more there is a high chance that the Arabian will win the race despite their slower pace in comparison to some other breeds.
This is the breed of horse which is suited to trotting and harness racing. They have speed and power from their shoulders and hindquarters. Although they are smaller than the average horse their legs are solid and refined.
The Appaloosa is known for the interesting and coloured spotted coat it has. It is also one of the fastest breeds of horses currently. The breed has a history of being used for a war horse or for hunting by the Native and First Nations tribes in America. This assisted in the refining of the breed into a strong and durable animal.
The Andalusian breed is known as the Pure Spanish Horse. The breed is intelligent, strongly built and have beautiful manes and tails which contribute to a handsome appearance. They are known for their stamina and athleticism rather than just complete speed. Due to this they are used in sports such as dressage and show jumping.

The horse with the beautiful coat is what this breed is best known for. The Akhal-Teke horse has a metallic sheen in its coat which gives the allusion of gold. They are a lanky and slim build, however they are still strong despite their delicate features. This breed is one of the most durable in the world and do extremely well in long distance events.
The Black Forest breed is rare today with a striking appearance of a darker coat and a light mane. They are a strong riding horse and do well at obtaining speed in carriage discipline. When working in teams they are some of the fastest horses in the world.
8 Of The Most Intriguing Agricultural Practices
Farming usually refers to the production of food or some kind goods. However these farms don’t produce anything that you would expect. See below 8 of the most original agricultural practices in the world.
Solucar Solar Power Complex, Spain
This farm happens to be Europe’s largest solar power facility. It was established in 2007, and since then it contributes highly to the country’s energy budget. Two ‘solar furnace’ towers are paired with a movable amount of mirrors that direct sunlight to a heat exchanger on the top of the tower. This converts the sunlight into steam which drives turbines and produces electricity.
Samut Prakarn Crocodile Farm, Thailand
This extraordinary farm located Thailand is actually a tourist attraction which you can visit to view the 60,000 crocodiles that live there and other exotic animals such as Asian elephants, tigers and range of different species of monkeys.
Hobbiton- New Zealand
In North Island of New Zealand a working sheep farm is found in the setting of where film adaptions from the Shire of the Lord of The Rings trilogy were filmed. The tiny hobbit houses have now been taken over by the sheep. Vistors are welcome to tour the the farm, to see the quaint houses nested among the hills and to pop into the Green Dragon Pub for a drink.
Tehachapi Pass Wind Farm, North America
This wind farm is an important power source for the state, providing 800 kilowatt hours of electricity for use all over California. This was one of North America’s first large scale wind farms, being founded in the 1980’s. The differences can be spotted between the original windmills and the more modern ones, as over time technology and science has improved and the windmills have been adapted accordingly.
Kostroma Moose Farm, Russia
Kostroma Moose Farm produces moose milk for medical purposes. The milk is rich in iron, selenium, zinc and lypozyme and is used to treat conditions such as peptic ulcers. The farm is also a research facility, as all the moose’s are fitted with radio- transmitters to track and learn their behaviour.

This farm is an amazing depiction of physical art, designed and created by Edward Tufte. The farm is 284 acres, scattered with sculpture gardens and installation work. Open houses are held one day every year for visitors to view the farm.
Pasona O2 Urban Farm, Japan
In the global headquarters of a Japanese headhunting company in the city of Tokyo is placed one of the most innovative agricultural farms in the world. The farm is located underground, using high-tech artificial lamps as a substitute for sunlight. The farm is used to experiment with new technologies and provide training for young people interested in farming.
Growing Power Farms, Wisconsin
Former basketball star Will Allen established a farm with the purpose to provide fresh foods at a low cost for local residents. The farm runs on an extremely efficient three- tiered water system. Perch and Tilapia fish species are housed in a water tank buried underground and the wastewater is recycled to the watercress plants and tomato plants at ground level in a greenhouse.
