Challenges and solutions

Challenged by a site that was not flat, we consulted with Tim and decided to install stepped columns on the attached agricultural yard cover to resolve this. We included wall lights and wall vents to allow for natural light penetration inside the shed and to maximise ventilation which helps keep the sheep restful during shearing. 

“We’ve got a shed that’s very workable. Very cool in summer and we have the ability to close the windows down and make it all nice and cosy in winter. It’s a great shed, we’re very happy with it.”
