Benefits of Building a Work Shed in your Backyard

A humble work shed in your backyard can open up bounteous possibilities, especially for the DIY or hobby enthusiast. Let’s face it, almost every Australian yard has some form of a shed. A backyard shed can be used not only for work but for play as well. You can use your backyard shed for storage, set up your hobby or perhaps for entertaining. Having a backyard shed is practically like an extension to your home. Here we take a look at the benefits of owning a backyard work shed.

The DIY Dream

If you consider yourself somewhat of a Do It Yourself kind of person having a workshop is paramount, and it will become your second home as you spend late nights tinkering away. It is also a great place to store all your tools and equipment. A one-stop DIY shop with workspace is the DIYer’s dream

An Extension without an Extension

A shed is an extra room outside the house. You can use this new room for pretty much anything you like,limitless to creativity. You can turn it into a games room, an office or place to go and get away from it all.

Save Money

With a workshop in your backyard, you will be able to fix simple and complex maintenance jobs around the house that would have usually required an expensive tradesperson. All you need is the right tools, a YouTube tutorial, the right attitude, and a workshop to do all your home handy person chores.

Storage Options

Owning a garden shed in your backyard gives you a place to store all your tools and yard maintenance equipment freeing up space in your home for other purposes.

The Getaway Cave

Sometimes life can become all too much. A backyard shed can be a great place to escape. Some people set their shed up into what is usually called a man cave. The man cave is a place where men drink beer and talk about men’s business whatever that may be; alternatively, you could use it as an art studio where you could write your first novel, or create your works of art in the form of pottery and painting.

Owning your backyard work shed is all positive. It opens up a world of possibilities for the home handyman and the hobby enthusiast. If you are in the market for a backyard work, shed contact us here at Col Western Shed’s, and one of our professional staff will set you up and have you tinkering away in no time at all.

  • 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

  • I would like to thank you very much for helping us so promptly with our bird aviary. There was a lot of discussion between the doves on returning to their new cage, but they have now settled in again very happily !! We really appreciate the hurry you gave us the order. Thank you very very much

  • 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
