Get Organised this Year

Eat better, exercise more, de-clutter your life … these New Year’s resolutions barely survive a week. And it’s partly because they lack specificity. For example, it’s easy to say you want to get fit. It’s even easier to pay a full year’s gym subscription and buy a set of stylish Lululemon’s. But that doesn’t ensure you actually visit the gym – or that you’ll work out at all.

Nudge yourself forward by getting a bit more specific. You could ask your friend or partner to call you every day. Not text. Call. The purpose of the call? Making sure you drove …

Father’s Day project – install a garden shed!

Dads don’t get nearly as much hype as mums do, especially around the holidays. Fortunately, dads are way easier to shop for. No, this doesn’t mean you should resort to ties, socks, and alcohol. Your dad probably won’t mind any of those gifts butgive him something with a little meat on it – and not just the barbie. We’re told the best way to bond with a woman is talk to her, and the best way to bond with a man is to do an activity together.

  • 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
