First – Let’s Talk About Your Farm Shed

We’ll work together to design the structure that you need, for the purpose you need it. From small farm sheds to large barns, garages, carports and all kinds of other structures, the Buffalo Built team will help you from start to finish.

In the first stage of your project, we use our decades of combined experience to understand what you want from your shed, so we can ensure you’ll be 100% satisfied with the final outcome of your chosen design.

Let’s Have a Look

If required, Buffalo Built will inspect your site to assess its suitability. This helps with the design process but also allows us to deal with any issues such as access, drainage and location early on in the process.

Drawing up the Plans

Our engineering team custom-engineers your plans with care, delivering a farm shed design that is structurally sound, meets Australian standards, and solves your storage problems.

Council

Building permits and approvals are often necessary before construction of your structure can begin. This can be tricky and does take time, so our expert team is here to guide you through the process. We aim to streamline it as much as possible, drawing on our expertise and our network of building surveyors and local planners.

Get it Ready

Once the design has the tick of approval from council it’s time to get cracking. Materials are ordered from our local suppliers and are delivered to our holding yard. Site works are often underway by this stage with concrete slabs/footings being poured.

Fabricating Your Farm Shed

Buffalo Built sheds are built tough and constructed with care using quality Australian steel. Our fabrication team will turn raw materials into your custom shed structure, producing trusses, columns, brackets and components in our workshop or in some cases, sourcing prefabricated parts from local suppliers.

Deliver to Site

Our team now arranges a suitable time for material delivery. Using local and trusted transport operators, our drivers carefully deliver and unload on your premises.

Let’s Build

Once your farm shed kit arrives on site it’s time for installation! Our installation teams are experienced in building sheds and understand the importance of careful construction. If you’ve ordered a kit and you’re going to build it yourself, we provide detailed instructions and we’re only a phone call away if you need help.

It’s All Yours

The shed is now yours to enjoy! Our team will visit for a formal handover which ensures you are satisfied with the completed project.

Final Certificate

Projects that have been issued with a permit are required to obtain a ‘final certificate’. The building surveyor who worked with you on the permit will visit the site to make sure your completed farm shed meets all the necessary requirements.
