Farm Buildings & Sheds
Farm Buildings & Sheds

Here at Stu Bell Construction, we have built a wide range of kit set pole sheds in a number of different sizes and purposes for all kinds of farmers in Canterbury.

Meet the Director:
Stu Bell

I grew up on a farm in Ruapuna, a small farming community on the outskirts of Ashburton.

From a very young age I was working and helping out on the farm. I purchased my own animals to rear and sell. I jumped on the tractor to help at busy times carting hay bales or cultivating a paddock.

This was just the beginning in learning the importance of strong work ethics and reliability, as well as gaining practical skills along the way.

2006 I left school and started my apprenticeship with a very reputable well-known building company in Ashburton, specializing in high spec homes and dairy sheds.

I worked alongside and was supported by some amazing builders, and would like to acknowledge the ‘good old fashioned’ values and skills that they have installed in me.

I was fortunate to have been trusted and given the responsibility within the business at a young age and have learnt so much about managing clients, sub contractors and large numbers of employees on some very busy sites.

In early 2010 I graduated to become a qualified builder.

2011 I build my first house in the Ashburton subdivision ‘Braebrook’, during weekends and after work.

2012 I decided it was the right time to meet my challenge and start out on my own. This had been a personal goal for me from the beginning of my apprenticeship.

2013 I employed a labourer, I was absolutely determined and we succeeded to demonstrate to my clients how well we worked together, how we strived with pride for excellence and quality in our workmanship. From there we have continued to grow and we now have three staff members with the same expertise and high caliber of skills and workmanship.

2017 has been a highlight in my life with the marriage to my wife Hannah. We were delighted to welcome our son Fraser, and in 2018 we are thrilled to announce the arrival of Henry.

Spare time is focused on finding a good balance in life and having fun along the way.

I enjoy jet boating up the rivers, hunting for Thar and deer. Hannah and I cherish family summer holidays with lots of water skiing, camping, friends and fun times.

  • "We had Stu and his team build us a home 3 years ago in a "remote" location and nothing was a bother for them - they certainly went that extra mile for us and made the whole project hassle free and enjoyable. The quality of workmanship is second to none and we are more than thrilled with the end result .. so much so that I definitely want to build again with Stu and his awesome team. Cannot recommend them highly enough if you want a quality build, with a team that are easy to work with and nothing is too much trouble. Stu is amazing at understanding the clients vision/s and I can honestly say that our home ended up better than I could have ever hoped for."
