Do I need to have a wooden a floor?
No you don’t. However we recommend any shed is bolted down to some form of base which could be a concrete pad.
Can you deliver a pre made shed on site?
We can deliver flat roof sheds on site provided you have a 2.5 meter wide access way for our trailer to back into. We do prefer to install on site as we can then build and level to ensure the best finish possible.
What makes your sheds heavier than others?
We use .40 gauge steel which is nearly twice as thick as the boxed sheds. This makes our sheds heavier and far more stable than the majority of other sheds on the market.
Can you ship to the South Island?
At this stage no because of the size of the panels. Our design is such a simple and easy shed that comes in 6 large pre assembled pieces plus the door (7 in Gable) rather than 20 plus smaller pieces that become time consuming and go easily out of shape. The sides, the front and back and then the roof plus the door. YOU ONLY ASSEMBLE THE PANELS…NO TRACKS ETC!!!! That work is done for you.
Why is it so expensive to deliver in the North Island?
We deliver these ourselves and don’t currently use private contractors. We believe this ensures you get your shed direct from factory to front door with the most minimal of handling.
Can I have a sliding door?
We currently do not offer this option. We believe that internal doors take up valuable room and external doors are far to easy to pull off. Hinged doors are stronger and give maximum space and security.
Does the shed have a timber frame?
Our design eliminates the requirement of a timber frame. The solid panels support each other and become very strong once assembled.
