    If its not a rude question... what sort of price is a slab like that (ie: properly done ). I've noted you can buy 20 x 12 barns for about $20K. So that would be 4meter bays between any uprights inside the shed. 20K seems cheap for such a big shed with a high bit in the middle for hoist/machinary/caravan.

    I bet the workmen had never seen a Cactus before. There can't be many in Tasmania.

    Hi Shane

    I think rule of thumb is the slab will cost what the shed kit itself cost.

    Slabs are expensive. My approach is more shed, less slab. Concrete is handy in a workshop, for cleanliness, straightness of assembly, ease of finding fallen objects, and convenience of moving stuff around. But for storage of big things like cars gravel is fine. And for mechanical work on a gravel floor I find a rubber mat makes a good surface and is softer and warmer than concrete. One of my sheds is 30 by 10 metres and has concrete in only two of its five bays.

    Another issue is the decision about how wide a shed should be. Too wide and it is hard to remove stuff from the back of it. Too narrow and building costs rise. One of my sheds is 15 m square and it is painful to get machinery in and out. It has only one 3 m wide door in the middle of one wall so I arrange everything in a sort of semi-circle and keep only easily moved things like tractors in the access area. It came with the property so I am making do with it. But when I built the 30 by 10 m shed I put sliding doors all along one wall. I suppose I should not that I have no space restrictions.

    Still, nice work, Balki, and admirable commitment. I like your 550: so much more tractor than a 35 or even a 135.

    I have lots of crappy sheds I just want one nice one ... with some decent height in some areas ... a floor that won't sweat moisture through winter ... and access that allows me access to each car. ( Yes I'm dreaming ). I was thinking barn with 3 roller doors each end (that gives access to 6 cars/caravans/machinary/etc without starting the "move the CX, move the DS, drag the caravan out ... now we can get the traction out" type thing.

    tractor implements would drive you nuts. I figure just put a series of low dog kennel height roofs around the edges of one of the sheds so you an dump any implements onto shipping pallets and have a roof over them. you never want the things buried so it takes you an hour of moving them around to get to the one you want.

    As with most things, you generally get what you pay for.. I have 12m x 8m and as UFO says, whatever you go for it won't be enough. The slab is usually about one third or a bit more of the total cost of a decent shed but this depends on the quality of the slab and reinforcing and quality / gauge of the shed steel. Insulation.? Electricals.? Plumbing.? It all adds up.
    But in the end you can't beat a good shed. And you sure look to have the makings of a good shed..
    Cheers, Peter J

    The ideal shed should allow for all types of maintenance, this one allows for testing of your turning circle etc!

    It looks very lonely sitting there all on its own. To keep it company, I reckon we could round up between us lots of cars to fill up a few spaces.

    No, not for Balki, for me.
    Forget about a 20 metre shed, I dream of having just a carport. (A double carport would be even better).
    My cars live outside and any work is done in the driveway (weather permitting).

    3 of my cars live in the shed and garage, but because the shed and garage are full I have to move the cars outside to work on them.

    Actually I prefer to work outside as the natural light is much better than working under flouro lights.
