One of the most important factors in the construction of any kind of shed is to make sure that it is strong, sturdy, and made to last. Not all sheds are constructed at the same level of quality, and the cheaper option will often not be as reliable and long lasting.
What is The Difference?
C Section vs RHS Steel
Cheaper Sheds are mostly built from C- Section Steel which has only 3 sides to it, and are made from a single sheet of metal. A higher quality shed will be constructed from RHS Steel, which is a section of fully enclosed, sturdy steel with a hollow center. Central Steel Build uses RHS that is thick, solid with a rectangle shape that allows it to take stress vertically and horizontally. This means the shed will be more resistant to high winds and heavy loads.
Benefits of Galvanized Steel
Galvanizing steel describes a process by which the steel is coated in zinc. This protects steel against rust and the elements for a longer period of time. It is suggested by the Galvanisers Association of Australia that galvanized steel will last up to 50 years in Australian rural environments, and 25 years for harsh coastal conditions.
Galvanizing the steel will not only stand up against weather conditions, it will withstand against corrosion, adding to the long lasting quality of your shed.

The 5 Most Beautiful Barns Ever
For most riders, the barn and stable are not much more than functional spaces. Your horse always comes first, your barn and your stables are just spaces that keep your horse comfortable. That’s the beauty of the relationship; as long as you and your horse can be together, nothing else matters very much.
But there’s something a little bit special about the stable too. The cool air and the sweet smell of hay. It’s a private space where you can spend some quiet time looking after your horse.
And even though we love the intimacy of a simple, small stable, it’s fun to dream about huge barns with ornate decorations.
Below are some of the most interesting and ornate horse stables and barns in the world.
