Garden Master & Galvo Sheds

Yes this can be done on Garden Master sheds only. Sheds are up-gradable at extra cost to the next roof model only. All flat roof models can be upgraded to a slope roof, and all slope roof models are available with a gable roof. You cannot get a flat roof model with a gable roof, nor can you have a gable roof with a flat or sloping roof. Please email us regarding pricing for these options and we will provide you with a quote.

Each shed will show the colour options available for you to choose. The Galvo range comes in a small range of colours. The Garden Master sheds have a wider colour range and can also be “mix & matched”. You can have a different roof, wall, trim and door colour if you wish. If you want to order a Garden Master shed with several colours please advise us at time of ordering what your choices are.

All runners are H4 treated pine, and all floorboards are H3 treated. You do not require any clamps with wooden floors.

The sheds are waterproof, but be aware that condensation can form on the underside of the roof in cold, damp climates.

We need to make the sheds in increments that equal the width of the rib profile (150mm) of the shed. Measurements are: 2.88m, 2.73m, 2.58m, 2.43m, 2.28m, 2.13m, 1.98m, 1.83m, 1.68m, 1.53m, 1.38m

Hold downs for steel sheds are available. In the accessories section there are 2 different types of hold down clamps suitable for concrete floors. Choose the correct type of clamp based on whether you have a flat floor or a recessed floor.

If you order a timber floor you will not need hold down clamps. The shed can be nailed to the floor and the weight should be sufficient to hold it down. In high wind areas we recommend pegging your wooden floor down as well.

5 blades @ 557mm x 150mm x 4mm

4 clamps for small sheds, 8 – 12 for larger sheds on concrete floor. On the product page for each shed you will see an option to add a recessed or flat floor clamp set. Doing this will ensure you get the right quantity.

There is no additional freight charge on all products.

On Garden Master sheds the door can be moved anywhere you would like it, but not on Galvo models. There is an option to tick to relocate the door when you order the shed. If moving to the end wall there is a small extra charge.

We do not offer this option. Internal sliding doors take up wall space and external doors lack security. Hinged doors last longer and are a lot more trouble free.

On Garden Master and Galvo sheds the lowest point of the wall is 1.83m. This is measured at the top of the front or back wall on a gable roof shed, or at the back wall (the low side) of a sloped roof shed.

Pinehaven sheds have different heights depending on the model, but you can check the dimensions on the floorplan for each model.

You can, but it is a bit of a process. Similar to painting a corrugated iron roof, so suggest you do your own research to decide if it’s something you want to do.

We have a shed for almost everyones budget and requirements. No doubt you will compare the sheds we offer with different manufacturer’s sheds.

Some manufactuers have entry level shed ranges that are built to a price. While there is generally nothing wrong with these sheds the cost cutting can be seen if you know what to look for. Using thinner guage steel or having shorter walls than other sheds all help to keep costs down. Check the warranty as the cheaper sheds may not have you covered for as long as ours.

Our sheds are generally maintenance free, however if you are near the coast we recommend you wash your shed more often than your car. This is most important under the roof overhang where the rain does not reach.

Our shed accessories section has solutions for this.

We do have approved assembly providers throughout NZ. If you would like your shed assembled please try The Assembly Company or Kitset Assembly Service.

We normally dispatch within 5 working days for standard Zincalume sheds and 10 working days for customised or coloured sheds.

You will need a drill and bits. screwdriver, pop riveter, tape measure, ladder. Some vice grips and tin snips or side cutters are also helpful. Assembly is best done when it’s not windy. Get a friend to help and it will make the job faster & easier as well!

Our garden sheds have a steel channel frame which forms a tension membrane when assembled correctly, eliminating the need for any extra framing. Also the deep ribbed profile of our cladding is stronger and more rigid than used by some competitors.

Single door is 755mm wide. Double door is 1550mm wide.

This will depend a bit on your DIY abilities. Typically half a day for smaller sheds, up to 1 day for larger ones. Allow another 30 minutes or so for a timber floor.

With Garden Master sheds you can mix & match almost any part of your shed. You can have your shed all one colour, or choose different roof, wall, door & trim colours. Match it or contrast it – the choice is yours.

Coloursteel is zincalume with an additional factory applied protective paint finish. At last you can personalise your shed to suit your house. Recommended in coastal or high sulphur areas. Wide range of colours available.

Both refer to the same product – steel with a protective zinc & aluminium coating. Your new shed will retain its great looks for years. Zincalume has been tried and tested in NZ and around the world.

Because you can choose a custom built or standard design shed made right here in NZ. Did we mention they are also built to last and easy to assemble?
