Farm sheds on a budget

Owning and operating a farm comes with a unique set of needs, not least among them being the need for storage that is both practical, durable and most importantly – cost-effective. Having a ready-made shed delivered or built on your property can be a huge expense.

How do you know what the best storage solution is for your farm? Keep reading to find out more about why farm shed kits could be just the answer you’re looking for.

Why Do You Need Quality Farm Storage?


In our current economic climate, being able to save a bundle on a necessary addition is a lifesaver. With the plummeting cost of dairy produce and meat as well as rising overheads, it’s hard to feel comfortable spending a lot of money. That rings true even if you absolutely need high-quality storage space.

It has been a few years since we had to make a price increase announcement but it is always an inevitable occurrence. As most things, the Steel Industry is also impacted by the changes in the economy, so we want to notify our community that:

There will be a National Increase in the costs of steel effective from next month.

This means that suppliers are forced to increase prices on some of their products which will impact us and you, the customers.

It’s not the first time this has happened as I mentioned, in 2014 The Australian warned the consumers that “the steel industry was facing big cost increases, with iron ore prices set to rise at least 65 per cent, and coking coal prices expected to double”.

We are not expecting a huge increase next month, perhaps only as small as max of 4% increase will be seen.

The increases start from the ground (ore prices) and work their way up the chain impacting everyone one way or another.

What does that mean for Cheap Sheds?

At Cheap Sheds some of our large steel products (not all) will go up in price from the 1st of November, only a few weeks away.

On the flip side, the larger buildings have been undergoing a lot of enhancements, so the products are even better than before!

Also, sheds will NOT be impacted by the change. Suppliers have done their best to keep the prices low on the smaller storage solutions.

Some of our top models will be impacted such as:

  • Smartbild Garages
  • Carports
  • YardPro Portal Frame Workshops
  • Smartlockers
  • Rural Buildings

But there is GOOD NEWS for YOU!

We are committed to providing the highest quality storage solutions for the best value and will never provide inferior products to our customers…this promise to you will never change.


With prices will increase soon but NOW is really the best time to secure a low price on a our larger steel sheds, garages and carports. We have put a lot of specials on this month, so that anyone looking for a larger shed, garage workshop or carport can get in quick with a deal before having to pay more!

Recently, cats have come under attack, literally and figuratively. The government plan to reduce the feral cat population in rural areas seems to have spread into our neighborhoods.

In some places, local governments have made it illegal for a cat to be out of the house unattended; which may not be a bad thing, since cat poisonings are on the rise. Cat lovers have come to fear for their feline friends.

While we can’t do much about those pesky neighbors, we must do all that we can to keep our precious pets safe and secure.

If your cat has been an indoor and outdoor cat, you will have made some changes in order to protect him. Keeping him indoors all of the time is a challenge, and it makes for an unhappy cat. Some people have successfully leash trained their cats. While this is admirable (and pretty incredible), it doesn’t afford Kitty the freedom to roam that he desires and has become accustomed to.

How can you keep your pet cat happy and safe while outdoors?

One way is to follow the growing trend of placing cat enclosures in your outdoor living space.
