Why summer is a great time to install a garden shed

If your garage is packed full of stuff, it’s probably time for some extra inexpensive storage room. A shed can often house all that additional garden equipment, the kid’s bikes, extra toys and so much more. From items, you use every day, to things you use just a few times a year when you buy a garden shed in Sydney you are buying some much-needed extra storage space.

The great thing is sheds are *multi-seasonal* which means they house everything you are using in summer, and provide storage for those summer items when you’re not using them. Garden sheds can also create attractive and useful outdoor *living spaces* too – a man cave, a hobby room, workshop, the uses besides simple storage are endless. Buying garden sheds in Sydney is easy, and relatively cheap, garden sheds are also straightforward to construct.

Check your local council for rules and regulations regarding your new garden shed. Those over a certain size will need to be approved. Be mindful of positioning when it comes to your boundary fence and neighbours, you don’t want to put your shed up that’s going to be used as a workshop right near a neighbour’s bedroom window.

Once you have purchased your shed, worked out where you want to place it, you then need to decide what sort of base you want to use. Straight onto the ground? On cement? On pavers? On wooden pallets?

Summer is a great time for getting out and about and into the garden, wouldn’t it be great to have a space for all those tools or pool toys. In a new shed, you can arrange or hang everything exactly how you want it, to make getting to the lawn mower or wiper-snipper, simple, fast and easy. No more digging around trying to find garden tools, your local hardware store has lots of storage solutions for your shed, from hooks to storage racks.

Now is the time, to assemble a garden shed – depending on the size it can take anywhere from 8 hours for two people, to the weekend for the not so handy among us.

With daylight savings, think of the extra time you can spend outside if your shed is used for hobbies, a games room, man cave or workshop, you’ll have more hours of the day to enjoy your new space. If your shed is for garden storage – imagine how much room you’ll have now in your once overcrowded garage.

  • 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.

  • Thank you to all at Col Western Sheds for your excellent service. From the time I made a weekend telephone enquiry, place a telephone order for a shed early the following week, received by email a diagram and quote, received advice of expected delivery time and took delivery at exactly the promised time from friendly helpful delivery men, I received outstanding service
