How much will it cost to build a farm shed?

At Central Steel Build we work hard to deliver purpose built, high quality agricultural spaces that are cost effective and stand the test of time. Optimising your shed space allows you to reap the best return on your investment. We offer bespoke add ons like bale barriers, ventilation solutions and large clear span openings.

Because we custom design and value engineer all projects according to customers’ requirements, we do not have fixed sizing and prices. But we do understand it’s useful to have a starting point.

We’ve broken the pricing estimates down into agricultural product types and provided some indicative sizes too.

All pricing includes GST but does not include installation costs.
