How Big Should I Build My Hay Shed?

There are four main questions to consider when deciding how big your hay shed needs to be:

  1. What size hay bales do you plan to store? — Do you need to store 8’x4’x3’, 8’x4’x4’ or Round Bales: (4’ x 4’). This will help you determine your total size in conjunction with the number of bales you need to store.
  2. How many bales do you plan to store? — Do you have a lot of hay to store? What is the maximum number of bales you’d expect to have in your shed at one time? This is when it’s best to overestimate a little to ensure you don’t run out of space.
  3. How high can you stack them? — With the existing equipment and machinery you have, how high can you stack the bales? Common shed heights allow for 5 or 6 bales high.
  4. Will the shed fit on the site you want it? — Lastly, but importantly, will a shed big enough to store all your hay fit on the site where you want it placed?

If you’re still unsure of the size hay shed you need, use our handy Hay Shed size calculator to estimate the size.

Hay Shed Options

Custom Bay Sizes

We can customise the bay spacing in your new hay shed to suit your hay bale dimensions. This ensures no space is wasted. Bay spacings of up to 9m are offered. Portal Spans from 12m up to 50m are all available.

Extra-large Openings

We can remove columns to allow easier access to feed and allow larger vehicles to access your building. We can help you create a shed to suit your business needs.

Custom Wall Configurations

How you set your shed up is completely up to you. Whether you need one open side, open ends or a fully open cover, we can design your hay shed to suit you.

Roof Ventilation

Hay is notorious for producing moisture. Reduce the chance of mould and corrosion to your property with proper air circulation. Our roof ventilation options are excellent at reducing the moisture in your hay shed.

Structural Steel Construction

The structural steel frame of TechSpan hay sheds is stronger and stands up to more bumps than a purlin shed. Read our article on the difference between structural steel and purlin construction for more information.

Building Approval Assistance

The TechSpan Smart Build System is structured to work from planning to completion. We work with you every step of the process to enable you to get the shed you need, including assistance and management of council approvals.

Do I need Building Approval Or A Permit To Build A Hay Shed On My Farm?

Generally, hay sheds with a total footprint of less than 200m2 will be classified as an exempt development and won’t need council approval. Sheds between 200 and 500m2 will generally be classified as class 10a buildings and will require basic approval, while sheds between 500m2 and 2000m2 total footprint will be classified as a “Farm Shed” class 7b building in the 2019 BCA and will need a more extensive approvals process. Buildings with a floor area above 2000m2 are classified as a “Farm Building” class 7b or class 8 depending on the usage and also require an extended approvals process. However, our expert team and in-house town planner can work with you and your local council to manage the approvals process from start to finish, even on the most complicated building classes. This is all a part of our unique Smart Build System. For more information on the council approvals process, we have put together an article that covers this in more detail, or you can reach out to our expert team. You can also find more information on the building classes and approvals process here
