Steel framed houses are all the go in Australia right now; in fact, they have been for quite a while. They look great, are super strong, affordable, can withstand Australia’s unpredictable climate and won’t be attacked by termites.

You can get a garage connected to the house, detached buildings, detached garages with connecting carports and also garages with workshops. There really are so many options to choose from.

ZINCALUME® steel is a popular choice for many farmers, and why shouldn’t it be? It is a high quality galvanised steel that has the lifespan of up to four times that of other galvanised steel products. It is a product of iconic Australian brand, BlueScope Steel and it simply looks amazing.
Wide Span Sheds believes in providing an efficient service and when it comes to the delivery of your new steel building, we don’t want to keep you waiting. In most cases, you should receive your shed within 4 – 6 weeks from when your building goes into manufacturing.
Wide Span Sheds supply our steel buildings in kit form, which allows our customers to either erect the shed as an owner builder (permits may be required), or to employ the professional services of a qualified shed builder.
The price of your steel garage will depend on a range of things; such as the layout you select, the design criteria, whether or not you make changes, optional extras, right through to the design and delivery (if you are located outside of our delivery zones). We do not hide these costs from you, and our sales representatives will make sure you are aware of any additional fees throughout the sales process.
One of the things Wide Span Sheds strongly recommends is that you find out what is required by council before you purchase a new garage, shed or kit home. You may need to submit a development application or apply for a building licence; the requirements can differ greatly depending on where you are located.
