Do you have room for a small garden shed?

Knowing whether you can afford to have a shed in your yard seems like a very straightforward question, but that’s not always the case. Here at Col Western Sheds, we manufacture sheds of all sizes.

Regarding small garden sheds we stock pre-fab panels for our smallest shed of 1.57 metres by 0.81 metres, and it stands at 1.09 metres high. We can reduce the size of this shed in reductions of 200 mm at a time, but it won’t get much smaller than this.

If you’re not outdoorsy, it might be difficult to tell how small (or large) these dimensions are, but you can always go to your yard space with a tape measure and some string or powdered chalk to mark out the specified boundaries. It will give you a general idea of how much room you need.

In addition to the dimensions of the shed, there are other factors to consider. First, the shed needs to have a walkway all around. This isn’t so much about aesthetics as it is for function. You need to access your shed from all sides to make sure it’s well maintained, and that there are no pests hiding in the nooks and crannies.

Aside from walking space, you need a concrete base that is 100 mm larger than the shed on every side. You should also think about the roofing. Depending on the type that you select, there might be an overhang. This overhang shouldn’t stretch into neighbouring yards or affect other landscaping features.

Do You Have Room For a Small Garden

For example, if your shed roof leans over a garden, then it can drip onto the garden during winter showers, which is fine. But if the dripping lands on wooden garden furniture, it will soon get mouldy. You also don’t want your shed dripping into a pond or design feature that would be adversely affected by summer shade or winter rain.

  • 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
