Pole sheds the way you want them
POLE sheds are a New Zealand icon, being so flexible and cost effective for a variety of uses.
Custom built to any size, engineered plans supplied, materials quoted, that’s what they do at Mosgiel ITM, where you can get an economical pole shed building tailored to your needs.
Mosgiel ITM have been in the business of supplying pole shed designs, plans, and materials for over 20 years. They supply all over Otago. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for a full brochure, or visit www.itm.co.nz to download a design form.
You can choose from several designs, either gable, leanto, or American style, and then simply tailor the plans to suit. Maybe some extra height here, some more room there — whatever you need. Whether you’re after a large hay shed or somewhere to store expensive farm equipment or stock, Mosgiel ITM can customise a design to suit your requirements.
The pole shed designs are simple but sturdy; using quality materials they are designed to handle Otago conditions. Square poles are now a popular option, for a very smart look. Cladding options often include plywood or timber, and roofing options can include 5 Rib and Clearlite.
You will find your shed easy to erect. Every ITM shed comes with engineer approved plans which you will need for building and council consent. No permit is required for sheds up to 30m2, carports 40m2 and rural sheds up to 110m2 (conditions apply). Mosgiel ITM are also able to organise an independent local builder should you require one.
The structure of pole shed designed buildings have been used for a wide variety of uses, commercial, residential, and rural, from basic sheds to simple homes. Being a simple strong structure, the variety of partitions, openings, and claddings are unlimited depending on the end use of the building.
When ordering your tailored pole shed building, you can select from one of the 50 standard designs and fixed prices, or for custom design they will draft the requirements to draw up an initial plan (no charge for initial estimate), price the materials required, and consult with you for any alterations to suit your needs.
The draft plan is then sent to the engineer for professional design. Any alterations required by the engineer are then incorporated into the material schedule and price. The plans along with your site and services plan can then go to council for your building consent application. Once consent is granted you can get on with the job of building your shed. ITM Mosgiel will assist you with any issues along the way.
