Sheds can be a fantastic addition to any property, providing extra storage space or a place to work on projects. When it comes to building a shed, there are two main options: a shed built by McHugh Steel, or a shed kit supplied by McHugh Steel. In this blog, we will compare the pros and cons of a full build shed and a kit-only McHugh Steel shed.


Full Build Shed

A full build shed is a shed that is built entirely from scratch on-site. This type of shed is customized to fit the exact dimensions and specifications of the property and can be designed to suit specific needs. A full build shed offers several advantages over a kit shed including:

  • Customization: With a full build shed, the design can be customized to fit specific needs. This means that the size, shape, and features of the shed can be tailored to meet the needs of the property owner.
  • Durability: A full build shed is typically constructed using higher quality materials, which can make it more durable and longer lasting than a kit shed.
  • Unique Design: A full build shed offers more flexibility in design, which means that it can be made to look unique and add to the aesthetics of the property.

However, there are also some disadvantages to a full build shed including:

  • Cost: A full build shed is more expensive than a kit shed, as it requires certification from council, concrete shed erect fees.
  • Time: Building a full build shed can take longer than supplying a kit shed, as it requires a lot more behind scenes from McHugh Steel than just manufacturing the shed.


Kit- Only McHugh Steel Shed

A kit-only McHugh Steel shed is a prefabricated shed that is made up of pre-cut components that can be assembled on-site. These types of sheds are becoming increasingly popular due to their ease of assembly and affordability. The advantages of a kit-only McHugh Steel shed include:

  • Affordability: A kit-only McHugh Steel shed is typically less expensive than a full build shed, as it requires less.
  • Convenience: A kit-only McHugh Steel shed can be assembled quickly and easily, which means that it is more convenient than a full build shed.
  • Quality: McHugh Steel sheds are made using high-quality materials, which can make them durable and long-lasting.

However, there are also some disadvantages to a kit-only McHugh Steel shed, including:

  • You need to organize builders, concreters, and council approval.
  • Skill Requirement: While assembly of a kit shed is often straightforward, it does still require some basic skills and tools, which may be difficult for some people.

In conclusion, both a full build shed, and a kit-only McHugh Steel shed have their advantages and disadvantages. A full you don’t need to organize anything, but it comes at a higher cost and longer construction time. A kit-only McHugh Steel shed is more affordable, convenient, and of high quality, but you are required to organize trades and council approval. Ultimately, the choice between a full build shed and a kit shed will depend on the individual needs, budget, and preferences of the property owner.
