Steel Kit Homes
Wide Span Homes is the kit home arm of Wide Span Sheds and provides a range of stylish, spacious and quality steel kit homes at competitive prices. We supply the steel kit (or shell) and structure of your new home, enabling you to source the rest without having to pay a builder’s margin. Many of our competitors offer the full package including windows, doors, gyprock and plumbing – however, this comes at a price inflated by the additional margins.
Our homes are perfect for the owner-builder or project manager and give you flexibility (and cash) to finish the home to your budget, taste and time frame. You have complete control of the project and you are not limited by the builder.

The Benefits of a Steel Kit Home
Steel is extremely durable and more likely to withstand fierce weather and climatic conditions than traditional wooden housing frames. Cold-form steel is very strong as well as being a lightweight material, making it easy to transport and assemble, which translates to reduced freight and labour charges. We only use premium high-tensile Australian BlueScope Steel in our steel kit home designs so you can be confident that you are getting the best value and product on the market.
Another important benefit is that termites don’t like steel! Unlike timber framed homes, termites will not eat through steel so you can be rest assured the structural integrity of your home will not be compromised by these pests. We do however recommend that you arrange regular termite inspections for your home, as other areas may still be prone to termite infestation.
While each steel kit home design may have some unique inclusions, all have the following inclusions as standard:
- Drawings for council submissions, excluding site specific drawings
- Full engineering plans and certification
- Ready to assemble BlueScope Steel stud frames, trusses, bearers and joists
- BlueScope Steel warranty (conditions apply)
- BlueScope Steel ZINCALUME® roof sheeting (Colorbond is also available)
- BlueScope Steel COLORBOND® wall sheeting, gutters and flashing
