Single Garage with Storage Space

There are so many details we need to consider in order to select a shed that is right for you and the site it is intended to go on. That’s why your Wide Span Sheds representative will ask you lots of questions. They are basically trying to understand your needs, and get accurate information so they can give you an accurate quote. 

Most importantly of all, we need to determine the dimensions required for your shed. Here are some of the measurements you will need to consider. 

Height: The height of your shed will usually be measured from the ground up to the eaves.

Length: The length is the measurement of the shed along the gutter edge of the building. 

Width / Span: The width, also referred to as span, is the measurement across the gable end. 

Bays: A double garage for instance has 2 x bays. It is the space between major structural components such as columns. 

When determining the size of your bay, you will need to put some consideration into what you need to store in that area. Typically, bays intended for cars are around 3 – 4 metres – however, if you need to house a truck, trailer or boat, then you will need to specify the dimensions, so that we can design your shed with a bay area and openings to suit. 

Roller Doors: Again, you need to put consideration into what you want to store in your shed, and how you want to use it in the future, to achieve optimal access. For example, if you need a larger area for a truck, you'll need to make sure you have a roller door that the truck can easily pass through. The shed design, its bay sizes and height need to allow for the size of the roller door as well as the extra headroom space to house the roller drum. 

Wide Span Sheds representatives are highly trained and will help you through this process, and ensure your shed will serve its purpose. Contact our friendly team today by calling 1300 94 33 77.
