Workshop Sheds

1 March 2021


Whether you're a skilled craftsperson or an art enthusiast, there’s nothing like the privacy, space, and professional working environment a workshop shed provides.

When you regularly work with tools, or paints, textiles, craft supplies, and other materials, it’s not hard for your projects to creep into the living areas of your home – unless you have a dedicated workshop space. We can help you create the perfect getaway to work on your projects, right in your own backyard.

Let's explore some of the benefits of this type of shed...

Benefits of Workshop Sheds

Added storage

You might think that a workshop shed is just a fancy name for a shed. It's not. More than just your average shed, this one’s dedicated to housing your passions. With a workshop shed on your property, you can free your garage or home of clutter, with added storage space for your paints, tools, equipment, creations and more. Don’t downsize your lifestyle – build a home for it.


Workshops can occupy many building styles, but one of the benefits of building a Fair Dinkum Builds workshop shed is that you know it’ll last. Steel structures are strong, durable, and still easy to fit out internally to suit your hobby or line of work. With our materials warranties, plus our own industry-leading 30-year warranty (find out more here), you can build your workshop with peace of mind that it’ll serve you for a long time.

A dedicated workspace

For an enclosed and secure space offering plenty of room to work, don't think twice about a workshop shed. With this build, you’ll have a dedicated area to pursue your work or hobbies. Sure, spending time with your family is essential. But a workshop lets you also enjoy that much needed "me time". It’s every passionate hobbyist’s dream – all your projects, set up and ready to go, in an easy-to-access space right on your doorstep.


Let's be honest here –when you practice your trade or take your creative passions into your home, all the noise, tools, and mess you create aren't always appreciated by your family. This gives you another reason to buy a workshop shed. You’ll have the space and privacy you need to get your things done – plus your car can have the garage back.

Fewer distractions

Nothing ruins your productivity like constantly being disturbed by the TV, ringing phones, or family members calling around while you're trying to work. Take it to the workshop, and you can work in peace. “Do not disturb” sign optional.

Give your property a boost

When you purchase a workshop, you get not just a shed but an asset that could significantly add value to your property. A well-designed and positioned workshop could be just the unique touch your property needs to add appeal – especially as more people embrace working flexibly and incorporating workspaces into the home.  


If you're worried that your shed may not fit into your outdoor area, worry no more. These sheds are customisable so you can choose from the broad range of sizes, styles, and cladding available. At Fair Dinkum Builds, our workshop designs and layouts are flexible, so you can fully customise yours to suit your needs.

Workshop FAQs

Q: How do I turn my shed into a workshop?

A: You can turn your shed into a workshop by adding workbenches, pegboards and shelves inside, adding rolling work shelves to maximise space, and adding accessories like a window or skylight. Adding windows to your shed is one of the best ways to make it feel like a workshop. To get the most out of your workshop all year round, we recommend checking out our range of Fletcher Insulation products.

Q: What wind rating is my shed?

A: All buildings are supplied in accordance with the AS4055 for your area. Fair Dinkum Sheds only supplies fully compliant ShedSafe accredited sheds to suit all areas of Australia. Your shed will be designed for your site, and specified for your wind region.

Q: Does my building require maintenance?

A: To maintain your warranty, basic care and maintenance is required. ZINCALUME® steel and COLORBOND® steel are designed for Australian conditions, and require an occasional wash with fresh water to keep them looking their best and prevent any corrosion. 

Q: Are you ShedSafe accredited?

A: Fair Dinkum Builds, one Australia’s leading distributors of residential garages, carports, barns, farm sheds and industrial and commercial buildings, is leading the industry to be one of the first businesses to receive The Australian Steel Institute’s (ASI) new industry benchmark for steel sheds – ShedSafe. ShedSafe accreditation means that companies such as Fair Dinkum Builds have been independently audited to ensure that all guidelines set by the Building Code of Australia are adhered to in the design of your shed, barn or garage.
