Make it Your Own

Each shed is customizable. You can get different amounts and sizes of windows and shutters, window boxes, a ridge vent, and custom sidewall porch upgrades. 

The interior is also entirely up to you. You decide on the number of bedrooms and bathrooms, how open or closed concept you want the space to be, the style, colors, and overall look of the place. These sheds are done so well that looking at them you’d hardly know it was a shed.

Even if full-time living in a small space such as this isn’t something you want to do, they could easily be used as a vacation home or cottage, a guest house right on your own property, even a separate space for, say, adult children who are home in summers between school semesters or who are saving money post-graduation.

Though it may require more work than simply purchasing a new home, they are definitely worth the effort.
