How to maximise your storage at home
Build-A-Shed comes in four different widths and depths that you can mix and match to suit your space. A wide and shallow combination is perfect for awkward areas such as under a carport, apartment garage or in a courtyard, while a larger shed gives you plenty of room for bikes, garden tools or a workbench.
There are two different roof styles: skillion (pictured above) or gabled. A skillion roof, which slopes in one direction, suits a spot against a fence, a wall or where height is an issue. You can also decide which side of the shed the skillion roof slopes towards. A gabled roof has higher headroom and more appeal for freestanding positions in the garden.
Multiple door options are another unique feature of Build-A-Shed. Select from either single or double-hinged or single and double-sliding doors. Hinged doors let you make the most of the shed's interior, while a sliding door suits tight spaces where there's no room for a door to swing.
For easier access, you can have an extra door at one end. Put a set of garage shelves inside and you've got some outdoor storage. A tunnel shed with a door at both ends is great for using the space down the side of your house – one door to provide access to the front yard and one to the back.
All shed parts are packed in lightweight cartons to make taking it home easier. All the hardware you'll need comes with the shed, including bolt down kits for added security. The holes for all the screws are pre-drilled so assembly is quick and easy. The only tools you'll need are a cordless drill and a rivet gun, which is used to assemble the doors.

Asbestos, lead-based paints and copper chromium arsenic (CCA) treated timber are health hazards you need to look out for when renovating older homes. These substances can easily be disturbed when renovating and exposure to them can cause a range of life-threatening diseases and conditions including cancer. For information on the dangers of asbestos, lead-based paint and CCA treated timber and tips for dealing with these materials contact your local council's Environmental Health Officer or visit our Health & Safety page.
