Outpost Buildings are designed for the toughest of NZ conditions. So, if you want a strong shed that will last the test of time then trust Outpost.

Built Tough Designs

They are designed to stand up to the extreme conditions of high country NZ – rail, hail, snow or extreme heat; your Outpost shed can handle it all.  Protect your assets with top quality Outpost buildings.

We’ve been making kitset buildings since 2005 and developed a trusted and reliable building process as well as many patented designs. Outpost buildings feature:

  • Strong clearspan framing without any need for support beams that take up space inside
  • Outpost skid mounted building base design made with H4 ground treated timber
  • Exterior H3 treated timber framing and plywood
  • Quality galvanised hinges, fittings & pad bolts


Built Tough Guarantee

Outpost kitsets come with a quality guarantee for all parts and workmanship so you can trust the quality of Outpost Buildings. If you find any parts supplied in your kitset are incorrect or have been damaged in transit, we will replace them for free.

Rest assured that if you do have any problems with Outpost kitset assembly. The friendly Outpost team are just a phone call away. We really know our products and can help you with building assembly advice.

Faulty Materials Policy: in the event of any kitset components proving to be faulty we will cover replacement of faulty materials providing we are advised within 12 months of purchase, however we do not guarantee any components that have not been assembled as timber is a living natural material and can move and warp if not secured in position.


Relocatable Designs

Most Outpost buildings are designed to be relocatable. Their extra heavy duty designs ensure that the maintain integrity of structure when moving from site to site. Being relocatable gives you the flexibility to reposition your building if you needs change in the future as well as the ability to get your Outpost Building loaded onto a truck for moving to a new property or on-selling. 

If you plan to position your Outpost Building in a windy site then we recommend you use some of our Wind Anchors. These hold your building down preventing the wind from moving it while still allow your building to be relocated.

We have 2 different Wind Anchor options to choose from:
