Building an extension for my mother-in-law

I love my mother-in-law but I never planned on living with her permanently. I have been enjoying her living with us now that we have kids but I feel like we all need some extra space so I am getting a granny flat built at the back of our block. This should allow us to have some extra space to make sure everyone has the privacy that they need whilst we can still be a family. This block has some tip on the process of building a granny flat including how to choose a contractor and how to get the council approval for the build.

How industrial sheds could benefit your business

by Chloe Cooper

Are you struggling to find sufficient covered storage for your equipment? Perhaps you urgently need a new workshop facility and you don't have time to construct a brick building? Whatever your needs there are plenty of ways that one or more industrial sheds could help your business grow.

What are industrial sheds?

While most business premises are made of brick or conventional building materials that doesn't have to be the case. There is a wide range of business sectors that can make use of pre-designed metal structures for commercial, farming, residential, or industrial purposes. Lightweight steel or hot rolled steel kit buildings are a common sight across the country, although due to their varied nature it may not always be apparent that a building may have started life as a steel shed.

Industrial sheds are generally kit buildings that can be quickly assembled on your site in whatever location you choose. The number of customisation options available means that two buildings which have essentially the same shell can end up looking quite different and being used for entirely different purposes.

Quick and easy assembly

One of the most significant advantages that come with using industrial sheds rather than conventional brick buildings is speed. If you are in desperate need of covered storage or somewhere to work on an urgent project the ability to put up a new building in weeks rather than months is essential. Industrial sheds are created from pre-existing designs and delivered to your site in kit form where they can be rapidly put together.

Not only is construction of the shed far faster than could be achieved by a normal building but the preparation stages are much quicker as well. You start with an existing design and modify it as required. Since the initial design is already established and tested large parts of the design work can be eliminated and the required permits can also be granted more speedily since the basic design is well known.

A customised solution

What do you want from your industrial sheds? Some people only need a bare shell for storage purposes. Other business owners may want to create a workshop with a separate office area. Some may want windows or a mezzanine floor in their industrial sheds. With a customisable industrial shed, all of these options are possible.
