Challenges and solutions

Bringing a Class 10A stable structure and a Class 1 dwelling together into one structure provided a unique challenge. These building classes are not often combined in the same structure.

We needed to allow a considerable clearance height for the stables at ground level for safe handling of horses. This meant the mezzanine for the upstairs living quarters was unusually high and required special attention throughout the design phase.

“Central Steel Build was a pleasure to work with on my custom shed house project. I approached several shed builders and none of them would do what I wanted because it was too customised but with Central Steel Build there wasn’t a problem. They were easy to work with and it impressed me how everyone from the company was so kind and genuine. The building is of great quality, and I couldn’t fault anything in their workmanship.”
