Barn Sheds – Think Outside the Barn Shaped Box

Barn Sheds and farm sheds are becoming increasingly popular. Not because there is an excess of farm animals that need to sleep in them or that more people want to roll around in them, but because their uses are becoming more and more varied and redefined. Lockyer Sheds have a huge range of shed solutions to suit any requirement. Whether you wish to use your brand-new barn shed as Air BnB accommodation, a wedding venue, it’s for a home handyman or a team of tradies – or you wish to build a teenager’s retreat or an awesome man cave, we’re your guys.

Lockyer Sheds work hand in hand with Fair Dinkum Sheds to deliver a product that is exceptional and well received every single time.

All of our shed work is Shed Safe accredited. We only use Australian made Bluescope Steel to ensure your shed is of the highest quality and will stand the test of time. In addition, we make sure to look at the finer details like ensuring you have site specific engineering, to avoid any last-minute build problems.

Included in those finer details are things like;

  • Colour coded screws as standard
  • The choice of cast in brackets, cast in bolts or dyna bolts for your hold down brackets
  • Custom sizing at no extra charge, and
  • Fully bolted frames with no welding involved

Other features of our top-quality barn sheds are;

  • .42BMT/.47TCT sheeting on all our sheds as standard
  • Monoclad/Corrugated or M panel available in sheeting profile
  • 450 grade High tensile steel framing
  • All sheds engineered to Australian Standards – AS1170, AS4100, AS3680

The valuable addition of a shed

Custom Sheds and Garages – Add Instant Value to your home

It’s a common misconception that a shed or garage is just a set of four steel walls, a roof and a dodgy padlock on the front. These days they offer so much more than just extra storage or a place to store your garden tools. While these uses are by no means obsolete, the evolution of custom sheds and garages means that they offer so much more to consumers than they used to.

Another misconception is also that it’s a men’s domain. Wrong. We’ve all heard of the Man shed or man cave, well, step back boys! For the rise of the ‘She Shed’ is imminent! It’s an exciting time for shed builders. We get to see customers of all varieties becoming just as passionate about what we do, as we are.

We’ve built sheds to store boats, cars, caravans and jet skis, to house horses, sheep and cows. We’ve constructed outdoor buildings for seamstresses, entrepreneurs, schools and farmers and buildings of all kinds from industrial sheds to work sheds, garden sheds, stable solutions, single and double carports. With the way the industry is developing there seems to be no limits to what we can achieve.

Further to the evolution of the structure itself, is the design. No longer are people building sheds out the back to hide from the world. Now they are a feature. Designed and colour coded to blend in with the main building, the humble shed or garage is now often considered an attractive, valuable asset.

Adorn it with all the fixtures and fittings that your heart desires, change the layout, add a mezzanine, choose from a huge range of BlueScope steel colours and styles and construct the perfect shed to compliment and add value to your home.

By adding a shed, you are making a very desirable addition to your home. Make it a brilliant one, and you’re cooking with gas!

Whatever your requirements or preferences, Lockyer Sheds have a prefabricated, BlueScope Steel coil, framing and sheeting option to suit your needs – and if there’s nothing that quite fits your specifications – they’ll start from scratch! To discuss your ideal shed design, contact Lockyer Sheds today! They’ll build your dream shed, at a fixed price – any size, any design, anywhere!

Steel for Australian Built Sheds

Our harsh Queensland climate means that we should always wear a hat and sunscreen, we should avoid being on the beach at the hottest time of day, we should remember to drink lots of water on a hot Summer’s day – and that our buildings should be constructed with materials specifically designed to withstand our extreme weather conditions… That’s where Bluscope Steel and Colorbond come in.

Colorbond, Galvaspan and Zincalume are all brands/types of steel that sit under the BlueScope Steel banner. They are well known throughout the construction industry as consistently being at the top of their game, being manufactured to the highest quality and being designed to endure Australia’s harsh conditions.

Colorbond steel is lightweight and durable. It comes in a large variety of colours and designs, is easily maintained, is recyclable and affordable – all of these factors assist in making it the perfect material for shed, garage and single or double carport construction.

From a small backyard shed for storing tools and the lawnmower to an expansive structure for farming or other commercial uses, designing, installing and constructing a shed is a cost-effective way to add value to your property with a versatile, protected, lockable, usable space. Not only does colorbond add to the structures durability – it also has the power to add wow factor.

If you’re in need of extra storage space, a versatile work space, a stable solution or even just a simple backyard lock up and are considering installing a shed, garage or carport in the Toowoomba, Gatton, Warwick or Lockyer Valley areas, contact the Lockyer Valley Sheds team today!

Lockyer Valley Sheds use Colorbond steel on all of their builds to ensure the highest quality and are eager to build you a colorbond shed, garage or carport that will stand the test of time and survive our often erratic Queensland climate.

SHEDS – Adding Value to a Property

The property market is as unpredictable as it is ruthless – but while markets rise and fall two things remain steadfast; extra storage and tidiness. Believe it or not, these two things have a huge impact on first impressions, long lasting impressions and on the overall value of your home. And what offers both of these? A shed, of course.

Whether you’re moving in to your very own home, preparing an investment property for rent, or preparing to sell the family home, there are a number of additions that can be made to work in your favour. Whilst you may have a long list of adaptations you wish to make, a good quality shed is always a positive addition – and a great place to start!

Buyers look for storage. It’s a fact… More often than not, when people are buying a new home or investment property, if they’re property market savvy, you’ll generally see them referring to a list as they inspect a prospective property and 9 times out of 10, storage will be on that list as a must have. This reiterates the notion that a high quality shed is a practical, highly efficient storage solution and a wise investment.

By adding a shed, you are essentially adding an extra room for storage, work or play – and the options of what you can use a shed for are seemingly endless. Garden sheds, work sheds, farm sheds, industrial sheds, wide span sheds, customised sheds, even single or double carports – you may even want to build it as a ‘man shed’ or simply store the jet ski or caravan… Whatever your requirements, Lockyer Sheds have a prefabricated, Bluescope Steel coil, framing and sheeting option to suit your needs – and if there’s nothing that quite fits your specs – they’ll start from scratch!

So, whichever wrung of the property ladder you are perched on, for your own benefit and for that of future buyers, if you have the opportunity to do so – consider installing a shed. Storage, practicality, tidiness and efficiency do not go unnoticed come inspection day – and let’s be honest, every Aussie family needs somewhere to store the mower.
