Back to Basics: The Residential Shed

Jul 19, 2022

Here at Pilbara Sheds, it probably won’t surprise you that we love sheds. They come in all shapes and sizes, for all purposes and to suit all needs. We love building commercial sheds, industrial sheds and even equestrian stables. But there is something extra special about the original shed, the residential shed, so to kick-start the new financial year we thought we will take a better  look at our old favourite. 


Residential Sheds are a Classic Addition to the Home

Every home needs a shed, especially when you’re living in the Pilbara. Whether it’s to store tools, machinery, to use as a man cave or even to store things like your Christmas decorations, there’s a million reasons why you need a shed on your property. When it comes to our residential sheds, we focus on value, quality, strength and custom design. We aim to work with you to provide the perfect shed for your situation, no matter how big or how small.


Practicality or Fun, a Residential Shed Can Be Both

What is it about a residential shed that makes it the perfect place to have a few beers and watch the footy on the TV? Though the first thing that comes to mind when thinking of a residential shed might be a space to store your things or keep your gardening equipment, we love when we see our sheds converted into the ultimate man cave or additional outdoor space. The residential shed comes with a range of possibilities depending on the space you have available on your property. Our team can work with you to ensure your new shed is designed and built with functionality in mind…we can make sure it’s more than just a storage space and serves all purposes you had in mind.


Designed to Fit Any Space

If you’re considering a shed for your property, but you’re limited on space, the Pilbara Sheds team can Custom Design Your Shed to give you the residential shed of your dreams. Choosing a custom designed shed means it can be tailored to you and your needs. Space not an issue? Well, our custom designed sheds can be built as large as you need to make sure it’s got everything you need covered.

What kind of schools and sporting organisations do you work with?

Do you understand the unique requirements of schools and organisations?

Of course! We are able to provide your organisation with hands on, insider knowledge of products that are suitable and best used with an educational and sporting environment. We know that school and sporting storage differs depending on its intended purpose, and we can customise your shed to suit its intended purpose


We have a strict budget, can you work to that?

We sure can! Both public and private schools have budgets they need to adhere too, and we completely understand that you will have a limit on what you’re able to spend. We will work with you to design a shed that isn’t only high quality, but also cost-effective within the set budget you have available. 


Are your sheds built for the Pilbara environment?

As Pilbara locals, we know the importance of building a school or sport shed that is able to withstand the Pilbara elements. Safety and durability is at the forefront of our shed builds, so when you purchase one of our sheds, you can be rest assured that it’s built for what ever the Pilbara can throw at it. 


Can we include storage solutions in our design?

Unlike a residential or commercial shed, school and sport sheds usually need to be designed to cater for a large amount of small equipment. Soccer balls, tennis racquets, goal posts or desks and chairs, we can assist you in creating an internal fit out to best suit your needs. Our distributorship Fair Dinkum Sheds can assist us to provide customised buildings to suit every situation.
