5 Ways You Can Turn a Shed into a Dream Space


Today’s sheds are becoming much more than just a place to store your lawnmower or Christmas decorations. Instead, homeowners are turning their custom shed into an additional living space and a dedicated place to work, play, and relax.


Here are some of the most popular & unique uses for our custom sheds:

1.  Man Cave/She Shed


The latest trend in backyard structures is creating a personal hideaway. Whether you want a man cave or she shed, the goal is the same: create a uniquely personal space to unwind, relax, or entertain your friends. Popular additions include an entertainment center to watch the game, a bar to enjoy drinks and play games, or a comfy couch to curl up with a good book.

Whether you are self-employed or a remote employee, you need a dedicated space to work. Featuring sturdy construction, plenty of headroom, and unlimited customization options, a shed is a perfect way to add a home office to your backyard.

3.  Woodworking Shop/Hobby Studio


A custom shed or garage can provide much-needed space for the DIY woodworker, car mechanic, or crafter. Many backyard shops add garage doors to easily move tools and vehicles in and out of the space.

4.  Exercise Room


Instead of hiding their home gym in a basement or garage, many homeowners are building a yoga or workout room in their backyard. The convenience of having a workout space in your backyard eliminates excuses for not working out, while large windows can provide plenty of natural sunlight and views of your yard, inspiring you to stay healthy.

5.  Playhouse


Don’t settle for a standard plastic playhouse for your backyard. Give your family a place to create, play, and let their imagination run wild. A custom playhouse gives additional space to play and can be designed to blend in by matching your home’s exterior. Plus, when the kids get older, you can convert it into a man cave, she shed, or backyard office.
