Timber Park Shelter Designs

Lindsay triple park shelter design at Gympie All Ability Playground

These Park Shelter Shed designs are made available in conjunction with Lockyer Drafting Designs. See their Facebook page ›

I am now offering my existing shelter shed drawings to the public as well as local and state government entities.

When operating Outdoor Structures Australia, I manufactured very good shelter sheds and toilets. Some could be classed as everyday items while others were quite sophisticated. All were extremely robust and fit for purpose. See a dramatic example ›

Most drawings can be purchased in one of three ways:

  1. As a simple CAD drawing issued as ‘not for construction‘ which you can adjust to meet your own site-specific needs,
  2. As a set of PDF drawings on Lockyer Drafting designs title block and ready for use in residential applications,
  3. Supplied as 2 above with the addition of an engineer’s Form 15.

What you will love about these drawings is how complete they are. I needed them to be so detailed that the contractor did not have to ask me a question during cut-out or installation.

Most drawings are complete with:
