On the 16th of September, the team of installers from Asset Building Systems had the shed roof completely assembled, and called in the crane. Just a couple of days later, on the 19th, the walls are fully sheeted.
The portal frames on this shed are made out of structural RHS. See the video and pictures for a view of an 18 x 12 x 5.1m shed under construction.
This kind of Shed is very versatile - it can be used as a hay shed, machinery shed, car and motorbike storage and more.
See below Jason's comments on the building experience:
"I started on my shed project with the intention of project managing and completing some of the work myself. The more I looked into it, and the more manufacturers I spoke with the more confused I became. Each one had variations as to what was included and excluded in the kit price. They all maintained that there kit was superior to the other and had good sales arguments as to why I should use them. When I sat down and analysed everything they were all about the same cost, but I had an amount of work to do that wasn't achievable considering my work commitments. I was encouraged by a friend to meet with the team at Asset and discuss a custom manufactured steel shed. I spoke with Wayne Savage and gave him the dimensions of the building, I met with them later in the day. When I initially looked at the price I thought it was a bit out of my range. I took all the plans and the contract home to compare with the information I'd collected. When I started doing the numbers and checking the fine print the Asset shed started to become a real option. I was already sold on the quality of the building being it is a proper structural steel building as opposed to a purlin and top hat system. So I was prepared to pay a premium for this, especially considering the long term plans are to turn the building into a warehouse style home. It was when I realised the only requirement from me other than writing a cheque was to provide a level site I was sold. Asset took care of the whole project inclusive of, Council approval, digging the footings and providing the concrete, all crane and scissor lift hire. All I had to do was pick up the keys when the job was done. Everything that was done far exceeded my expectations. The shed looks great, it was built on time and within the budget. I would recommend Asset Building Systems to any one, a great honest company to deal with."
