Garden Sheds in Brisbane | How to Choose

 

Brisbane…home of the famous Story Bridge, the ‘sky lighting’ River Festival and the glorious Lang Park. Not only this but it’s home to many old and historic buildings.

But like everyone else in other cities, you have storage needs or require a space for yourself to work in. Whether it’s a garden shed, workshop, bike storage, work studio … you are here for a reason.

If you live in Brisbane and thinking about buying a shed, then you are in the right place. With the largest range of high quality Australian made sheds to suit all backyards and climate, you don’t need to go anywhere else.

But before you commit and buy a shed, there are some important things you need to know about adding a shed to your home in Brisbane.

 

BRISBANE WEATHER

 

Having a shed in Brisbane means it needs to be tough, to not buckle under the harsh sun nor have the paint fade.

Luckily for you, there are a range of sheds available at Cheap Sheds which are great for our climate.

  • Steel sheds are the most popular and are Australia made, using the highest quality metals. Not only this but if you choose a coloured shed, you can rest easy knowing the paint won't peel in the harsh Australian sun.
  • Resin sheds are super easy to assemble, lightweight so you can move it and they generally come with windows and vents for airflow. They won't fade, rust, dent or buckle in high temperatures.
  • Timber sheds are great for cooler areas with no fire risk. These tend to be cooler and don't require insulation and have beautiful designs.

You live in SE Qld, a place which experiences stormy weather for a good part of the year. With hot and humid days and sometimes gusty winds there are a few things you should consider for your shed.

First, no matter where you live, you should ALWAYS anchor your shed to the ground. This will keep the structure stable and prevent it from moving during those summer storms or being flattened.

Depending on exactly your location, you need to consider your wind rating and buy a shed which is engineered for that zone. You can find out more about wind ratings here>> Cheap Sheds Wind Calculator

Secondly, due to the varying temperatures throughout the year, you might like to consider insulating your shed to ensure it’s comfortable all year round.

 

WHAT SIZE SHED DO YOU NEED

 

To determine the size of shed you need, you must answer the questions below.

  1. What will the shed be used for?
  2. Do you have enough yard space for it?
  3. What are the measurements of the pace you have available?

Once you've found the answers to these questions, you'll be one step closer to picking the right shed.

An important step to take before buying and garden shed is to check with your council.


COUNCIL APPROVAL

 

Don’t make the mistake others have made by buying and putting up a shed...only to have the council inspector come knocking on the door one day and giving you a fine because you don’t have approval.

Before adding any structure or making changes to your home, always check with the council to ensure no permits or approvals are required.  

The GOOD NEWS is that most garden sheds don't require any paperwork or approval but its best to be safe than sorry!

You can find out more about permits by visiting our council info page:

 

WHERE WILL IT BE DELIVERED?

 

Once you’ve selected the shed you want, you’ll need to decide whether you want it delivered to home or the depot in Brisbane. Once ordered it will be made to specifications and then it will either,

1. Conveniently be delivered in flat pack to your home for an additional charge.

2. Alternatively, you may have the shed delivered to the depot in Brisbane for a flat fee. (Pst, this is the cheaper option!).

ALDYTH, REDLAND CITY, QLD

Hello Krisztian,

Thank you for the excellent service and prompt delivery of my aviary, which arrived in the promised 2-3 business days. Unfortunately we will be unable to assemble it until near the end of July as we are moving from Redland Bay to a rural property near Texas on the Qld/ NSW border.

Thank you for the follow up emails and the book on organic gardening, greatly appreciated.

FIONA, SCARNESS, QLD

Very happy with the service, thank you. All as described and expected, which is nice for a change. Have not yet constructed the shed, but have read instructions and watched video (great idea), so hopefully will be fine when we do it on the weekend.

ASHTON WOOD, BUDERIM, QLD

Hi Krisztian,

Just wanted to say a big thanks for shed I purchased off you last week.

It arrived in only a few days and I assembled it with my kids last Saturday.

It all came together quite easily and the instructions and numbering on all the panels made assembly a breeze.

I will definitely be recommending you to my friends.

TREVOR & JENNY EHRICH - QLD

Hey guys, love the sheds and loveeee the way it comes with anchor bolts, its only a small one but that‟s all we needed, we use it for wood shed at the back stairs at our new house we just finished building a high set old Queenslander ourselves, it looks great, it was easy to put up and should be there for a long time. I hope you like the photos of our new shed! Thought you would like to see how we stack wood in it getting ready for the winter and one of Jenny splitting wood for our fireplace!!

LEANNE BURNTON QLD

In marriage my husband and I share many things. We share our house, our cars, the parenting and nurturing of our children, the roles and other responsibilities which comes with running a household, the king-sized bed in our bedroom and even, under extreme circumstances, the sharing of a toothbrush...

We will, however, NOT SHARE A SHED and that is precisely why we bought TWO IDENTICAL SHEDS from Cheap Sheds earlier this year.  

With well-set out instructions and precise parts, we managed to build the sheds without a divorce. "His‟ shed has become his man cave with all his tools and sports equipment neatly organized within. My shed has become my "gardening haven‟ where I can keep all my gardening equipment and materials in perfect order.

In total harmony we work side by side, both enjoying the additional space our vinyl sheds are providing.

After 20 years of marriage, my husband and I have learnt that some things in life are worth sharing and some things are not... the sharing of a shed is not one of them, but the SHARING OF A LOVELY HOLIDAY in BALI certainly would be!

WARREN AND SALLY FAITHFULL

The shed arrived yesterday afternoon and I collected it this morning. I have unpacked it and everything is in good order and what I was expecting. I poured a slab a couple of days ago and will erect it as soon as it cures.

Thank you very much for all the information and advice you have forwarded to me since you received my order. You score a 10 out of 10 for everything related to my purchase and I will be sure to recommend you to anyone looking to purchase a shed.

Once again thank you and best regards.
