5 Simple Steps to a New Shed

If you’ve done your research on garden sheds, you will realise the tremendous benefits of s shed. It not only raises the value of your property; it also provides additional storage and can be used for an endless amount of reasons. Fortunately, it doesn’t have to be time-consuming or costly. With prices as low as $280 you really can’t go wrong.

Here are five easy steps you can follow to have a functioning shed set up quick smart:

Step 1: Select Your Size

At Col Western Sheds, we have shed sizes from less than one square metre to 6m long. The shed itself can stand 1m high or stretch a little over 2m. In addition to standard sizes, we can also expand your desired dimensions in increments of 200mm. We do this by reducing measurements from the size above, so if you want your shed to be 4m long, we’ll start with our standard size of 4.64m and cut it in 200mm segments until it’s down to your chosen length.

Step 2: Pick a Style and Colour

The sizing of your shed will influence price, but you can pick the colour of your choice with no cost consideration. Our sheds come in six shades – off-white, smooth cream (yellowish), stone (brownish), slate grey, and two shades of green. You can also choose from three styles of roofing – flat, skillion, and gabled. Doors can be hinged or sliding, based on your preference.

Step 3: Decide on Add-Ons

The accessories you add to your shed will depend on how you plan to use it. If it’s an office, you may want shelves. If it’s a space just to relax, you may furnish it, or install skylights. We have both options available. We also have gutters and downpipes for rainwater harvesting, as well as windows, anchors, whirlybirds, and extra trusses – particularly posts and brackets.

Step 4: Watch Our Tutorial

Our installation team can put up your shed within a day, but only if it’s not windy or rainy. We don’t want to risk unnecessary injuries. That said, it’s easy to put up your own small garden shed. The sheds come with all the necessary parts and fastenings, including walls, doors, floors, and windows. You can watch our simple installation video and follow instructions for a quick DIY project.

Step 5: Accept Your Delivery

Once everything is in place, we will deliver the flat-pack straight to your door, with clear directions on what goes where. You’ll have to do your own silicone sealing though, even if you use our team for installation. Silicone prevents rising damp from damaging your shed interiors.

  • 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
