A barn-style house is a great concept because you get the blue-print of a home but also the options are endless when it comes to making it a multi-purpose building.

Specialised Structures are experts at building barns with living quarters including all the rooms you need, plus the option of adding a mezzanine floor, hobby room, garage/workshop, business/office extensions….the choice is yours.

The benefit of a barn-style home is that it is a complete solution to your lifestyle needs, with both practical and aesthetic design options that will prove a worthy investment in the long run.

Here at Specialised Structures we have been building barns with living quarters up and down the country for a long time now. Our barn-style home projects have included numerous multi-purpose style buildings that have surpassed our customer’s expectations with the quality of workmanship and professional service.

We can build your barn-style home with any type of cladding and building materials you wish to use, and can advise you best on how to achieve the barn lifestyle of your dreams!

Barns with living quarters

Mark Farrant, our Specialised Structure’s merchant in South Canterbury has done just this!  The happy owners of this two storey barn-style home are delighted with the result (see above photos).

The home has a 15m clear span and is 16.5m long with a wall height of 3m.  The ground floor is 225m2 and comprises of a garage, laundry, two bedrooms with built-in wardrobes, a bathroom, large open plan living/dining/lounge with panoramic views through large windows and doors.  A log fire completes the living area and provides warmth in the cooler months.

The upstairs area is a 49m2 mezzanine floor which includes the master bedroom, ensuite and walk-in wardrobe.  A large sliding glass door looks out over the stunning alpine views from the foot of the bed onto a deck (which is to be completed).  The roof above the deck projects a further 1.5m enabling shelter from the elements.

The home is clad in ebony coloursteel with ebony aluminium double-glazed units and electric roller doors. This is all set off with a naturally finished macrocarpa fascia and barge board trim.

Well done to Mark and the Specialised Structures team in South Canterbury for building a superb home!

Pump Houses built the Specialised way!

Pump houses, or ‘pump sheds’ as they
are Pump Housessometimes referred to, are the answer for keeping your pump and electrical facilities safe and secure.

Here at Specialised Structures, we can build your pump house to any specification you require and out of any materials you wish to use.

We can customise the build to meet your needs or you can choose to build and manage the project yourself with one of our construction kits.

We highly recommend building with steel because of its durability to withstand the New Zealand climate.

Our range of steel frame buildings are completely waterproof inside and
out and have superior strength qualities.

The Specialised Structure’s team inPump Houses

Eric and Luke Anderson. The duo have
recently built pump houses for an irrigation scheme at Sheffield, Canterbury.

The pump houses are to house all the electrical equipment/circuit boards etc., to run the pumps. Dimensions for the pump houses are 4.5m long by 3m wide by 2.8m high.

The pump houses are fully insulated with a 20mm nominal cavity system. The client is also installing heat pumps in each of them.

The framing is cold rolled steel and designed to take the heavy snow loads and wind loads which are prevalent in the environment there. They are lined with 9mm ply.

The Christchurch Specialised Structures team also took care of building the earthworks and concrete pads for the sheds and pumps.

Shed Design

Shed Design Tips from the experts at Specialised Structures

Shed Design – Customised Building Specialists is who we are, and supplying NZ pre-engineered custom designed buildings is what we do.

  1. Shed Design – Use and Placement

To help decide what size building you need, ask yourself these questions:

  • What is your shed going to be used for?
  • What will your needs be in 20 years’ time?
  • Could it end up being your retirement hobby area?
  • Where is the shed going to be placed?
  • Is the area you have big enough for your new shed?
  • Are there any Council bylaws you will need to consider on the placement of your new shed on your property?
  • If your shed is for storing machinery, have you got enough room for access and easy manoeuvring of machinery especially in front of the shed.
  • Simple things like building your shed away from trees will also ensure your guttering is kept free of obstructions.
  • If you are debating whether to add an extra bay now, or if you should leave it until later; keep in mind it is far more economical to do the whole shed at once because you will save on building consent fees, delivery and install.
  1. Shed Design – Size

Depending on the proposed use of the shed, the factors you should consider when designing your shed:

  • Width – is your building going to be deep enough to fit the length of the items you need to put in it? Eg; your car, ute or boat, maybe a caravan, camper of even a truck
  • Roof Height – depending on what you are going to store in your shed, you will need to ensure you have enough roof height to accommodate everything comfortably
  • Number and size of Bays – Basically the number of bays in your building will depend of the amount of gear you need to put in it. The size and the height of the bays will depend of the size of that gear. Note: Specialised Structures can make bays of any size and height.
  • Clearspan – Do you need a clearspan building? If not it maybe more economical to have centre posts.
  • Access – Roller Doors, Personnel Doors, open front bays.
  • Door Placement – If your shed is for storing machinery, you may also want to consider traffic flow patterns inside the building to determine door placement.
  • Lighting – clear lighting, open bays, roller doors, windows.
  • Ventilation – If you are building an animal shelter, you will need to ensure livestock are kept comfortable and healthy with natural ventilation.
  1. Shed Design – Materials your shed is built out of.

Here at Specialised Structures our buildings can be designed from a wide range of materials.

Most small to medium sheds in NZ, the framing is either lightweight cold rolled steel or of timber pole construction.

The team at Specialised Structures were pioneers of the lightweight cold rolled steel building design and construction in NZ. Their knowledge and experience in this product is second to none.

Specialised Structures not only offer timber pole sheds, but they are the only company in NZ which offer pre-engineered Laminated Timber Portal Buildings.

For the Industrial and Commercial customer, as well as the above, Specialised Structures offers Structural Steel Construction along with Concrete Tiltpanels. Various fire rating systems can easily be incorporated into any of our buildings.

All Specialised Structures buildings can be clad with almost any cladding type a customer desires, to give their building the exact look they are after.

  1. Shed Design – Budget

Specialised Structures will design your building to fit your budget. Our aim is to give you the most economical building to fit your requirements.

A great way to save costs is to erect the building yourself … Specialised Structure’s kitsets are affordable and we can supply you, or your builder, a construction pack with everything you need.  You have full control over your kitset building project.   

Remember Specialised Structures has a large range of building types and sizes, and they can customise any building to any size and look you require.

A recent example of a very happy customer who purchased a Specialised Structure’s Kitset Shed Construction Pack is Dallas Green from Coventry Products Ltd.

“I got Specialised Structures to design our factory building to suit my needs, and all council consents went through without question.

I bought the kit from Specialised Structures, and used local builders Keating Construction, who had never erected a steel shed, another local concrete man, Andrew Carey did the floor. Prestige Roofing Matamata did the Cladding.

Tom Keating found the instructions simple to follow and everything went up without a hitch.

So my thoughts are nothing but positive, the Specialised Structures kitset sheds system works simply and well.”

Specialised Structures builds Winery Extension for Kiwi Spirit Distillery

Kiwi Distillery

Specialised Structures offers a wide range of building options and a new winery extension for Kiwi Spirit Distillery is another example of quality construction within their commercial portfolio.

The Specialised Structures team in Tasman led by owner Lance Robinson is currently building a winery extension for Kiwi Spirit Distillery.  Lance says “We are building for Kiwi Spirits, they are distillery, making high end plonk and health tonics”. Sounds great to us!

The winery extension for Kiwi Spirit Distillery is taking place in Motupipi, Golden Bay, and is part of the new development for the company.  The distillery is located at the northern most reaches of the South Island of New Zealand between two spectacular National Parks, the Abel Tasman National Park and the Kahurangi National Park.

In the heart of the bay, nestled down a lane off the main street of the quaint town of Takaka, you will come across the unique Kiwi Spirit Distillery. It all began in a beloved old building, lovingly restored by owner, Terry Knight. Due to growth, this new purpose built distillery will share much of the same charm as the original building.

From humble beginnings to adventurous enterprising, Knight has developed a range of world class, hand crafted products including Waitui Honey Malt Whiskey, Murderer’s Bay Gold Rum (now in the capable hands of Village Distillery), Tangelo and Lime Liqueurs, Fruit Schnapps, and ‘Silver Cloud’ – New Zealand’s first Blue Agave Spirit.

These artisan products use only the finest ingredients and mana filled water from the Te Waikoropupu aquifer. You can sample their fantastic range of products and discover for yourself the goodness that comes in a glass. Our tip: enjoy it over ice.

We look forward to seeing the finished results of the new extension and will keep you posted.  You can view the distillery’s website here.
