Where you build can be just as important as what you build when it comes to commercial sheds.
A piece of land may look like the perfect location for a custom designed shed, but there are plenty of potential pitfalls hidden from the naked eye.
Perhaps the easiest problem to spot is sloping. A sloping site can cause a number of problems for construction, and can make building next to impossible if it interferes with foundation too much.
Soil type is another important issue, but less readily apparent. Some types of soil are just not meant to be built on, featuring low load bearing ability. This can make the construction process that much more expensive.
Water is also a potential problem to be on the lookout for. Surface water can cause soil erosion and lead to flooding, while subsurface water can wreak havoc on septic systems.
However, land issues go well beyond nature's hurdles.
Even if you plan on constructing a custom designed shed on your own property, it's essential to obtain the proper permits.
For instance, perhaps the land you've chosen features special building conditions or covenants. If it has a strata title, there will no doubt be certain restrictions placed on it.
If you don't first receive approval from the local government, you could face steep penalties and see your project torn down.
