A solid shed or garage not only serves as a handy storage place but for many, it’s a place to relax, workout or tackle a range of personal projects.

If you live in or around Melbourne, a well-designed, beautifully crafted concrete shed or garage will make your home complete.

But, if you’re considering creating your dream shed or garage, knowing where to start can prove tricky—especially when there’s so much to consider.

But, don’t worry—as one of Melbourne’s leading concrete experts, here at Concept Concrete, we have a few tricks up our collective sleeve—and we’re going to share them with you now.

Consider the end goal

It goes without saying that your end goal will be to create your perfect garage or shed. But, to make this happen, considering exactly what you’re going to use your creation for is essential.

Are you planning to use your concrete garage or shed purely storage? Are you going to brew beer in it or perhaps convert it into a gym? Will it be a home office or a kid’s play den even?

By asking yourself these questions, you will be able to work with a concrete or construction professional to develop a design that will suit your needs down to the last detail.

Lay the right foundations

Whether you’re looking to tackle parts of the project on your own or work with a professional, understanding the importance of laying the right foundations is vital.

If you don’t build your shed or garage on solid foundations, you will encounter disaster a little further down the line. So, if you are working with a professional, ask them if they need to dig footings and if they intend on building a solid concrete base. If not, this is a real red light.

Our guide to why you should use concrete footings for your home will highlight the importance of laying solid foundations.

Work with right concrete professional

To make sure you end up with a concrete shed that is perfect rather than passable,  you must work with the right concrete professional.
