If you’re considering building a new shed, one of the biggest questions, if not the biggest, is ‘What will it cost?’. The answer to that is simple: it depends on the decisions you make.
At KiwiSpan all of our sheds are custom-made and tailored specifically to each individual customer, so each quote is different. We gather some key pieces of information from you to provide an accurate quote. It’s important to us that we don’t charge you for things that you don’t need, and likewise we don’t believe in providing you with a base level quote that has a long list of exclusions which you’d be charged extra for.
Transparency up-front means you know exactly what you’re getting and only pay for what you actually need. Read on to learn about the decisions you need to make that define the design of your new shed, and it’s price tag.
One of the biggest contributors to the cost is size. Consider how big you need your new shed to be, and whether you need all of that space to be fully enclosed or if some areas could be open on the ends or sides?
Openings and access points are another key consideration as the number and type of doors can make a difference to your shed cost. This includes roller or sectional garage doors, whether they’re manual or remote, personal access doors, and sliding doors. Another opening to think about is a window, which can add a lot of value to workshop and storage spaces alike. The number and size of windows will impact your shed price, and in some situations the use of clear perspex panels will do the job.
Partitions and mezzanine floors are all possible and can give you great space utilisation, but again they impact your shed price. Have a clear idea of what you need versus what is ‘nice to have’ depending on your budget.
Finishing details are another big component of your quote. We’ll ask you to make decisions about the internal walls and insulation requirements, as well as exterior cladding including roof and gutters.
If you can answer these questions then you’ve probably put some good thought into a new shed design and know exactly what you need from the space. Now’s a great time to get a quote for your new shed.
