In Australia, converting the old backyard shed in to a studio is virtually an art form. Some truly amazing designs and extremely practical options are available, so you’re sure to find an option that fits your practical needs as well as your budget.

Building your outdoor paradise can be a high value decision too, allowing you to add to the value of your property without reducing your space. Whether you’re looking to add a living space, a backyard entertainment area or just a safe place to play, a shed restoration is ideal.

Why Choose Sheet Metal?

To get your new studio design off to a good start, consider sheet metal as one of your main materials. Made to measure for style and comfort, sheet metal has a wide range of practical and design features that you can benefit from. With new designs options including Colorbond® roofing, insulated panels and patio materials, you can make your new space look and feel however you want.

Keeping Your Costs Down

No matter the size of your renovation project, there’s always the risk that you will blow your budget. Upfront costs are the big reality check for any kind of renovation and ongoing costs should be carefully considered too.

Metal buildings are extremely long-lasting, representing very low maintenance and upkeep costs. With sheet metal as a primary material, you won’t need to spend a lot of time or to keep your new studio in great condition. They’re also very budget-friendly when it comes to upfront costs and can be altered to match your design.
