Building a Shed on Sloping Land

Just because your land is sloped doesn't mean building a workshop, storage, agriculture, or another type of shed is impossible. There are a few more steps and considerations, but done properly, it could end up being the best use of that otherwise wasted space. Here's what you need to know. The paving slab and timber sleeper foundation can accommodate a small slope if you cut a little on one side of the slope and build up crushed stone on the other.

A Workshop in Gooseberry Hill

At Action Sheds Australia, our workshops are often used as combination workshops, storage sheds and garages. In Gooseberry Hill, a Perth suburb, we recently installed a 12 x 9m workshop for Walter S.

Walter used one of our kits. He supplied a concrete slab for a foundation and then we erected … [Read more...]

A Workshop in Wycombe

Storage sheds can be confusing. Many people think that they can just go to a “big box” store, buy a cheap shed, put it up, and that they will get years and years of great performance out of it. Usually, though, the cheap product comes up very short of their expectations. Recently, Bryan from High Wycombe called us about erecting a shed on his property.

Making a Beeline to Beeliar

We like telling about our many successful installations of sheds in Perth. Recently, we received a call from Rosetta and Glenn in Beeliar. Rosetta and Glenn live in a free standing house on a large residential block, and they wanted a bit more room to store their tools--and they needed a lot more room to store their boat. We inspected the site and went with a custom, colour bond, double roller door shed. Our double roller door shed can be used as one giant shed, or it can be used in two … [Read more...]
