Garage Shed for Wangaratta Resident
A Lock-up for LEGO: Michael’s Storage Problems Solved
Location: Wangaratta, VIC
Structure: Garage Shed
Shed size: 7m x 3m x 2.7m
Project value: $15 – 20K
Time to completion: 8 weeks including permit
With a baby on the way and a house to get ready for this bundle of joy’s arrival, Wangaratta resident, Michael needed more space in his Wangaratta home – fast.
A lack of storage for everyday house and garden gear was the key driver of this project, however Michael’s substantial LEGO collection also needed a new home. An avid collector, Michael was happy to relegate his collection to his new garage shed: a practical custom-built design from Buffalo Built.
The Buffalo Built team designed a 7m x 3m x 2.7m garage shed that complemented Michael’s property, with our in-house design team taking care of the details and our Project Manager John Teiffel keeping the pressure on council to get the permit approved.
Designed and built over just 8 weeks beginning in November 2021, our team took care of full project management for Michael, leaving him the time and energy to prepare his home for the pitter-patter of tiny feet.
“The project was completed just before we had our first child, which meant we were able to clear things out of the house and into the shed and get the baby room set up in time,” says Michael.
The structure itself is a 7m long Colorbond garage shed featuring a roller door, personal access door and window for extra natural light. Positioning the shed in relation to the existing swimming pool was a challenge for our team, but the solution was a report and consent from the council which was achieved without significant issues.
“This project was delayed at different times due to several different factors, but John communicated this all the way through and was even able to get Davin and his team putting the shed up over New Year in the sweltering heat,” adds Michael.
Michael now has the extra space he needs in the house for his growing family, and a safe, dry and secure garage shed for everything that no longer fits in the house (and his precious LEGO collection)!
“The Buffalo Built team were great, very helpful getting [the shed] planned and navigating the hoops council required us to jump through,” explains Michael.
“John was great at communicating with council and helping me understand what they required. He was also happy to help when I realised I had ordered the wrong colour for the roof, and was quick to get it fixed before it was too late!”
“We’re very happy with the quality of the finished product – it’s even better than we were expecting.”
