Why Customised Sheds Are So Popular

No Aussie home worth having is complete without the humble – or sometimes not so humble – backyard shed. Sheds are popular around the country as junk or house overflow storage, garden implements housing, as a tool shed, or even as a refuge man cave for when the house just isn’t the right spot for watching a game of footy or sinking a few tins.

Getting a shed is exciting. But a plain shed, without anything in it, is a little boring. With just a plain shed you’re likely not to utilise space to its fullest, unless you’re only storing large, tall items inside, or unless you pile up things to the ceiling.

That’s why many people to choose to go with a customised shed. There are so many options to choose from when customising your shed, so it makes sense to think about how you want to use your space before you actually bite the bullet and purchase a shed. How are you go to use your shed?

Is your shed going to be used for storing tools and gardening implements? Then you might like to build in drawers to store tools, and various receptacles and hanging space for your gardening implements. Is your shed going to be a man cave? Then you’ll want to think about putting in a skylight to help take advantage of the natural light, along with a cooling option for when your shed heats up during the day. If it’s household storage, then drawers, chests and shelves might be the go for storing odds and ends. If you are using it as a work shed then you’ll want to set up dedicated spaces to your saws, etc. as well as a really nice workbench, or work benches.

Then there’s also the exterior of a shed to think about. While your garden-variety sheds will just come in a one or two size, galvanised aluminium, with a single sliding door, you can also fully customise the exterior of your shed to something more appropriate from your yard.

Our sheds, for instance, can be built to custom dimensions, with flat roofs, gable roofs, or skillion roofs. The can be made in a range of different colours to blend in or contrast with the rest of the colours in your garden. There are options for different doors, too.

  • 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.

  • Just letting you know that I received my shed even earlier than advised. It is so good to deal with a company that values it’s customers and delivers on ALL of it’s promises. I loved the ease of use of the web site along with the easy to find prices. I received great service at the Penrith Store when i went in to make my purchase. Fabulous communications re my purchase, and delivery well above my expectations. The product ain’t half bad either
