Garden sheds can be pretty versatile. You can use them to store all your gardening tools and supplies, from your hose to your shears and rake. If you put up shelves and drawers, you can organise your seeds, fertilisers, and pesticides in the same space. You can even keep DIY garden projects in there, or a bicycle.
Once you’ve decided you’re getting a shed, you might want to man up and build one from scratch. After all, it can’t be that hard, and YouTube videos make it look pretty do-able. But just because you can do something doesn’t necessarily mean you have to. You could save yourself a ton of time and money by outsourcing.
Col Western Sheds have been in this business for 35 years and counting, so we’d be glad to do all the hard work for you. And if you do feel you’d like to get your hands dirty, we have good news. We’ll leave the silicone sealing to you.
You see, to prevent underground moisture from damaging your shed, you need to lay a concrete slab that’s at least 100mm wider than your shed floor. Once the shed is put up, you need to seal the inside of the shed with silicone. Of course, if you’d rather just do everything yourself, we can offer some helpful tips and leave you to it.
Each one of our garden shed kits come with easy-to-follow instructions and DIY-friendly fastenings. When you order from Col Western garden sheds you will be supplied with pre-fab panelling in colours ranging from off-white to Caulfield green. You can pay a little extra for more colour options and modified sizes, so you can get the exact garden shed you’d like.
All the panels have zinc or silver trimmings for added beauty. They come in three roofing options: flat, gabled, or skillion, and you can pick one based on your style preference. Sliding doors are standard, and you can choose a single or double.
If you’d like to add some extra touches to your garden shed in Wollongong for example, Col Western staffers can help you install skylights. These are good if you plan to do any work inside the shed since they let in lots of natural illumination. At night, you can use the skylight to watch the stars or have a romantic garden dinner indoors.
We can also tailor the size and style of the doors and windows, and we can put in some anchors and shelves to suit your storage needs. Our sheds do come in standard shapes and sizes, but we can tweak both in increments (or reductions) of 200mm. We have several stores in New South Wales, and we service surrounding areas. We can arrange for delivery and installation depending on where you are, so give us a call today on 4632 4222.
