shed access

Discussion in 'Buildings & Infrastructure' started by Power Harrow Pilot, Jan 2, 2017.

  1. I am thinking of building a new straw shed. Access will be from the side ( between the legs) it will be 20' bays, but was wondering if its possible to remove one of the legs and strenthen the 'pan'.? hope this makes sence???

    Do you mean like in these photos with a leg missing? I think they call it hit and miss and it's common.

    is it just me or when you walk in a large industrial you end up admiring the structure, especially with multi span (and a lot of hit and missing)

    Yep, can easily do a 40ft span. Doesn't add more than a few hundred pounds either depending on height and location etc.

    Think it cost about £300 extra
