Build the shed that's in your head.
Thomsons ITM Pole Sheds are designed with total flexibility and cater for almost any specific requirement you may have.
You can be sure you're getting a building that's spot on for what you want because you have a hand in the farm shed design. Simply choose either Gable or Lean-to Pole & Rafter design, then tailor the plans to suit.
Extra height, another bay, wider - whatever you like. Once the plans are approved, we'll deliver materials on-site, ready for you to install.
