Our Step by Step Guide to Choosing the Right ShedDoes your property need a shed?
If so, the following is the step by step process we use to make sure our clients always pick the right one.
What Do You Need Your Shed For?
This is the most basic question you can ask when picking a shed for your property. However, there are all kinds of reasons you could be in the market for one. There may even be more than one reason.
Maybe you just want an area to store an extra vehicle or two. Maybe you want space for a workshop. Again, maybe you want both.
Generally speaking, the types of sheds we offer at NWSM are:
Keep in mind that each of these shed types represents countless options, so even if you don’t know which would make the most sense, we can help you decide based on your needs.
Understand the Relevant Laws
Unfortunately, you can’t just pick the type of shed you want and then get busy constructing it. There are a number of different laws that determine which types of structures are allowed in which areas.
The good news is that, at NWSM, we’ve been doing this since 1998. Amongst other things, this means we understand all about these regulations and know the type of paperwork required in order to build all the different types of sheds we specialize in.
Now, that being said, sometimes, you may find that the shed you want just isn’t an option because of local rules. You may have to build your shed elsewhere, or we can help you pick a different kind that will be acceptable to the local authorities.
Think About Materials and Other Needs You May Have
As we mentioned above, we offer a wide range of sheds, so once you have a basic model chosen, you can also think about what kinds of extra features you may wish to add on.
For example, if you’ll be keeping a large vehicle indoors, one popular add-on is a roller door. A personal access door would probably still be a good idea, though.
Other popular options include:
There are also the materials to think about. Depending on what you have in mind, zincalume or colorbond may be perfect.
Thanks to our 17+ years of experience in this field, we’d be happy to make recommendations. We understand that most people don’t have time to do all the research required to make the best possible choice when it comes to designing a shed.
Once we understand what it is you need from a shed, in terms of both functionality and materials, we’ll get busy on creating a custom blueprint for you. This way, you can see exactly what you’ll be getting before you give your approval and we get started on the actual construction.
At NWSM, building sheds is something we’ve done now for nearly two decades. The process we just outlined will make sure you pick the right version for your unique requirements. Whether you choose NWSM or not, feel free to follow our process for your project.
