Plankbridge expands into Australia

Shepherds' huts specialist Plankbridge is expanding its empire well beyond its Dorset base to include Australia. It will be shipping its new-build huts to Brisbane as part of a joint venture with Steve and Mellissa Chaddock who emigrated from the UK some years ago.

"I really like the idea of shipping corrugated buildings like firms in Bristol did in Victorian era," Plankbridge co-owner Richard Lee told Shedworking. "I love corrugated iron and the idea that orders for our huts in Australia are helping to employ craftsmen in Dorset, just as they did 150 years ago, fills me with huge optimism for the future.!"

  1. Too bad that time has long past and it is now an irresponsible thing to do. Ideas like this fill me with pessimism about the future. Australia is perfectly capable of producing its own corrugated buildings. Export design ideas instead.
