How long does it take to install a shed?

In general, sheds come in kit form, whether you purchase from Bunnings or a garden shed in Sydney from Col Western Sheds. Coming in kit form means installation is quite simple and straight forward, with most of the steps repeated over and over again – for example, panels joining together to form the roof or walls. This means as you get the hang of each step you can speed up a little. If you are installing a longer workshop shed or garage, you will notice how repetitive the walls become.

As with anything, if you have a few people helping out you can spread the jobs around, the quickest part of assembling a shed is often the wall panels as these just fit into place. The door assembly being the more complicated part of the process, simply as this section is more complicated and has more *parts* compared to other sections of a sheds construction.

The roof section is relatively easy, but it has more parts to it than the wall sections.

Depending on the size of the shed and the number of people putting it together it can take anything from a half a day to a full day to install a shed yourself.

You can install a small garden shed yourself, but if you don’t have a little knowledge in construction, it can be a difficult do it yourself process. Depending on your needs installing a shed can include some of the following – laying down concrete, being able to work with roofing, working with steel and erecting walls. Building up skills like this takes time, and if you are a bit of a couch potato, you are best to leave the installation to the professionals. If you are a bit of a *jack-of-all-trades* you are welcome to install the shed yourself.

Remember too, depending on the size and positioning of your shed; you may need council permission. If in doubt either contact the council or speak with your garden shed providers in Sydney. Depending on the size of your shed or the scale of your project you can then opt to build the shed yourself or take advantage of our services, this means it can take 6 to 8 weeks to have your finished shed standing securely on your property.

Smaller builds such as patios and awnings take less time to be completed than larger commercial design sheds or custom designed workshops or carports. Feel free to contact us to discuss your needs and what council rules and regulations are in your area.

  • I just want to advise you of the terrific service one of your shed builders provided to us when last week he built the shed we ordered through your Penrith office. Dave and his young helper provided first class workmanship, he was very polite, and the clean up was a pleasure compared to most other tradesmen. We are soon going to order a further shed via Penrith and I have no hesitation in recommending your products. Thank you Dave, and thank you to Col Western Sheds.
