A 42.5m x 24m x 7.5m machinery shed completed earlier this year at Werrimull VIC.
This shed size has been popular for both hay sheds and machinery sheds over the past 12 months due to its versatility and practicality.
The inclusion of an 8-metre cantilevered canopy provides extra protection for the machinery inside the shed and means that longer machinery (such as a full-length B-Double) can be stored fully under cover.
This shed also features traditional corrugated iron cladding in zinc (which you can see in the photo below) The majority of farm sheds are clad in zinc as it is both durable and cost-effective.
The Action Custom Gutter System includes downpipes plumbed to each end, out of the way machinery.
A shed roof like this also provides a great opportunity to capture run off, and could potentially capture 268,800 litres per annum (based off a yearly rainfall of 200mm). Use this calculator to find out how much water your shed roof could capture.
Bay spacings of 8.5 metres ensure that there is ample room when moving large farm machinery. Other common bay widths are 8 metres and 9 metres – or where a wider bay opening is required a girder truss can be used to achieve a double bay opening.
