And for every purpose, there’s a design, including custom-designed sheds.
Below, we’ve included 6 of our top shed designs.

Looking for something a little bigger? A lot of our clients own farms and are looking for hay storage space. An open-sided hay shed is perfect for this.

If you feel like embarking on a bigger project, some of our most beautiful builds have been habitable dwelling frames. Our clients often work with their own architects to produce fantastic spaces like the one above, a bed and breakfast in Mt Buffalo.
