THE “EASY FIT” FARM BRIDGE

A lower cost, D-I-Y solution for farms, private properties, parks, and anywhere else where a bridge is required for access purposes. Load capacity up to 2 tonnes, simple construction, easily assembled.















SHEDS

There’s more to a shed than just a steel frame and steel cladding.
The one shown above was manufactured from LVL (laminated veneer lumber) and nail-plated plywood gussets, all by one person. No team of blokes was needed here. Assembled on the fibre reinforced concrete slab (bo reinforcing steel was used), the roof structure was lifted by crane into position on top of the columns.

STRAW BALE STRUCTURES

One of a number of natural building materials, straw bales can be used for all types of building elements including houses, fencing, walls, footing systems (yes, I’ve designed a strawbale footing system), sheds, and infill wall panels. Illustrated are several structures.
