Farm sheds for sale.
Let’s start with a clear definition! A farm shed is a structure used on farms to shelter animals and store farm equipment or produce, like hay, produced on the farm.
Critical considerations for agricultural shed builds
There are a few things to remember with the farm shed design.
- Ordering the right size: Make sure the structure is big enough for now and in the future.
- Storage requirements: Consider what equipment needs to be stored.
- Budget: It is crucial to establish a budget beforehand due to the wide range of prices.
- Style preferences: With such a large variety of options, this is time very well spent.
- Local zoning regulations: Before ordering, check with your local zoning department to verify if you can construct one on your property.
Keep your farm organised with our custom-designed farm buildings
We strive to make the design and manufacturing process as easy as possible. Our dedicated team is here to support you, no matter how challenging the request.
No matter if you are after a large, experienced team that can assist you with customisation. This will involve dimensions, style, roof pitch, size, and colours to match existing buildings perfectly.
Hay sheds are typically large buildings or open-sided structures that provide protection and shelter for hay bales from the elements, such as rain, snow, and sunlight. Hay sheds are commonly found on farms and agricultural properties where hay is produced and stored for animal feed.
They are designed to keep the hay dry and in good condition until needed.
Structures specifically designed and built for housing and managing dairy cows. The size and layout of a dairy shed can vary depending on the number of cows and the farm’s specific needs. The shed usually includes milking parlours, holding areas, feeding areas, and possibly storage spaces for feed and equipment.
Proper ventilation, lighting, and hygiene are essential factors in a well-designed dairy shed to ensure the health and productivity of the cows.
It is fitted with a gable roof. This kind of shed has two sloping sides that form a ridge at the top, resembling an upside-down “V” shape. Unlike other types of sheds, an open gable shed does not have walls on the ends, only the sides, leaving the space available and accessible from both ends.
This design allows for easy access and provides a versatile outdoor storage solution. An open gable shed, also known as a drive-through shed, offers protection from the elements while maintaining an open, airy feel.
Shearing sheds are an essential part of the wool industry, and whether you have a commercial farm or a hobby farm, a shearing shed provides a safe environment for the shearing process.
The design of shearing sheds has evolved, meeting the changing needs of both the shearers and the sheep. Many years ago, these buildings were simple timber and corrugated iron structures. Today, however, technological advancements and the increased demand for wool production have resulted in more sophisticated buildings (like ours) designed for maximum output.
A farm machinery shed is a vital structure that houses and safeguards farm machinery and equipment.
Our new farm sheds are constructed with steel with solid frames and protective roofs to shield the machinery from the harsh Australian climate.
They often feature large doors or openings for easy access to the equipment. These sheds protect expensive machinery from damage, theft, and vandalism by providing a secure and organised space, ultimately extending their lifespan.
Open Front Farm Sheds
Open bay farm sheds, also known as three-sided sheds, are the perfect mix of cost versus practicality and are probably Australia’s most popular form of farm sheds.
This design keeps the cost of a new farm down as it only has walls on three sides and no extras like roller or personal access doors.
This allows you to store your farm machinery or produce undercover and is easily accessible and protected while keeping costs down.
They are also easy to maintain as they don’t have any moving parts like sliding doors on traditional farm storage sheds.
Choose your roofing style.
We offer two roof types: gable and skillion roofs.
Skillion roofs, also known as “lean-to” roofs, have a single slope that gives them a slanted appearance. This minimalist design is typical in modern homes, farm sheds, and garages.
Gable roofs are a classic and commonly used roof style across rural Australia, they are easily recognised by their triangular shape. This type of roof is ideal for areas with heavy snowfall, as the steep slope allows the snow to slide off easily.
Roof angle options for our skillion and gable roofs
The angle of your shed roof, known as the roof pitch, plays a significant role in its functionality and appearance. A steeper pitch offers several advantages, including improved water shedding, better structural support, and the potential for extra space.
Ensuring that the chosen pitch adheres to local building codes, complements the selected roofing material, and provides the desired space is essential. Conversely, a poorly pitched roof can lead to water damage, structural issues, and space limitations.
A roof pitch for every situation
We have every roof angle possible. Below is a list, but we advise that you give us a quick call before deciding.

We understand the importance of longevity, so we incorporate heavy-duty knee and apex connection plates made from thick galvanised steel into our garages.
We exclusively utilise Colorbond and Zinalume cladding on our sheds.
- COLORBOND® steel: Pre-painted steel for roofing, walling, and fencing.
- ZINCALUME® steel: Zinc/aluminium alloy-coated steel for long-lasting protection and durability.
A Brief History of Bluescope
BlueScope Steel has a strong bond with the Australian steel industry. Over the years, BlueScope has acquired other companies and introduced new ideas, establishing itself as a leading provider of flat steel products in the area.
BlueScope is committed to both innovation and sustainability. They continuously strive to develop cutting-edge technologies and procedures to uphold their status as a significant participant in the worldwide steel industry.
Garage columns, rafters, girts and purlins
If you enjoy technical details, you may want to learn more about our structures.
The columns serve as vertical pillars, giving the foundation and support for the entire structure. The rafters, which stretch from column to column, create the sloping roofline and bear the weight of the roofing materials. Girts run horizontally along the walls, supporting the cladding and stability against wind loads. Lastly, purlins are placed perpendicular to the rafters, creating a grid-like framework supporting the roof covering.
C-section BlueScope steel is a specific kind of steel purlin manufactured using GALVASPAN® steel. These purlins are commonly used for providing support to roofs and walls. The name ‘C-section’ is derived from the shape of the steel, which resembles a ‘C’ with three sides.
Although this type of column may have a slightly lower strength compared to other options, this is reflected in the price.
Z-Sections, manufactured using GALVASPAN® steel, are trademarked by BlueScope Steel Limited. These horizontal beams, also known as Z purlins, are commonly used in industrial and agricultural buildings to support roof and wall joists.
One of the critical advantages of Z purlins is their exceptional strength and ability to handle heavy loads.
Top Hats are a unique metal profile with a distinctive shape resembling an inverted U. They have a flat top and flanges that offer excellent strength and stability. Made from galvanised steel, such as ZINCALUME® or COLORBOND®, top hats are known for their long-lasting performance.
Top hats are highly versatile and find applications in various settings. They can be used as roof purlins, girts for walls, bracing for stability, and battens for ventilation.
Even though they are lightweight, top hats are surprisingly strong, making them cost-effective for many projects.
Colorbond and Zinalume cladding
Our custom-designed outbuildings are constructed using only genuine Colorbond and Zinalume cladding. By utilising ZINCALUME® and COLORBOND®, we can ensure that our sheds are durable and long-lasting. These high-quality products also come with a generous warranty of up to 15 years.
What is Colorbond cladding?
Colorbond cladding is a pre-painted steel commonly used for roofing, walling, and fencing. It is manufactured by BlueScope Steel, a well-known steel manufacturer based in Australia.
One of the main advantages of Colorbond cladding is its versatility and durability. The material is designed to withstand harsh weather conditions and resist corrosion.
Another benefit of Colorbond cladding is its low maintenance requirements. Once installed, it doesn’t need regular painting or staining, which helps reduce overall maintenance costs for homeowners and businesses.
Colorbond cladding also offers aesthetic appeal. It comes in a wide range of colours and finishes, allowing homeowners and builders to choose the option that best suits their design preferences. This means that Colorbond cladding provides functional benefits and enhances the overall appearance of the building.
Our cladding options
We have two types of roof cladding available. The first is Corodek, a popular and traditional choice for corrugated roofing. It has a Base Metal Thickness (BMT) of 0.42 and comes in both Colorbond and Zincalume options.
Our second profile is Trimclad, which features a 5-ribbed deep pan design. This profile is particularly suitable for sheds and industrial buildings. Like Corodek, Trimclad is available in both Colourbond and Zincalume options. It has a BMT of 0.42mm and a total coat thickness (TCT) of 0.47mm.
Manufactured by BlueScope Steel, Trimclad is a custom-length roofing and wall cladding made from high-tensile steel. It has a unique and distinctive look compared to other cladding options.
Our second option, Corodek Cladding, is a specialised corrugated roofing and wall cladding type. Made from high-tensile steel, it is well-known in the industry for its traditional corrugated profile.
