A Beautiful Treehouse From a Wooden Shed

Are you a DIY person? Imagine buying a basic shed and then turning it into something amazing. I am going to share 7+ ideas that will turn a wooden shed into a project you will love. In this post, I will categorize DIY sheds into workspaces, gardening sheds, and entertainment sheds. This list is just the start of DIY ideas; if you have some ideas of your own shoot us an email

Large Wooden Sheds Make Wonderful Work Spaces

Wooden Shed for Office

Transform a Wooden Shed into a Professional Office

Do you need a home office, or are you having trouble separating work and family life? Converting a wooden shed into an office may be the perfect solution. A story I will share is about a woman named Rebecca who runs an online Etsy business and needed space for her business. She and her husband bought a basic wooden garage. Together they put in the electric, insulation, drywall, trim, and flooring. This saved them money and they did it their way. Read more about their story at Two-Story Prefab Garage.

Wooden Shed Transformed into a Studio

Create an Artist Studio From a Wooden Shed 

Do you dream of having a beautiful studio? Design a shed with the right windows and space, and then finish out the interior yourself and you will have an amazing affordable studio. Every artist needs a place to paint and sculpt. If you are an artist, you should look at Margaret's and Kelly's studios:

Margaret wanted a home art studio and she created it from a two-story wooden shed and a budget of only $5,000 to finish the interior the way she envisioned.

Kelly is another artist who finds inspiration in painting skyscapes. She wanted something private and well lit. She selected a more modern wooden shed, and she created a beautiful studio.

Sewing Room From Wooden Shed

A Tailored Perfect Sewing Wooden Shed

If you sew, you know you could use more space. Imagine taking a wooden shed and transforming it into your perfect sewing room. We have several customers who did just that and now they have happy spaces where they can do what they love.

Alicia creates swoon sewing patterns from her design studio. She now has plenty of room in her two-story shed to work and store her materials.

Beautiful Space Shouldn't Be Expensive

Mary Jane is another proud customer who wanted to have a beautiful space where she could create. But she was faced with several cost-prohibitive options until she discovered she could buy a wooden shed and finishing it. Now she has a very lovely space to work, and she is very proud of it.

Small Wooden Sheds Made for Your Yard

Wooden Garden Sheds

Wooden Gardening Sheds

Do you not have enough space for your lawn equipment or gardening tools? You buy a basic prebuilt wooden shed, then you can add shelves, a loft, pegboards, and hooks for hanging tools. There are many ways you can customize the shed to make it fit your needs. Here is a post with 17 great ways to make a wooden shed into something unique and useful.

Greenhouse Shed Wooden Sheds

Greenhouse Shed

Imagine going to your garden and picking fresh home-grown vegetables. Greenhouses can help keep your plants safe from both critters and the elements. It also can be an enjoyable experience for children.

You start with a shed with the right design and add a glass-room or add extra windows to the shed. The wooden shed can provide a potting room, with your gardening tools. It will last many years and be something you will be proud to share with others. 

Wooden Sheds for Entertaining

Inside a Wooden Shed Treehouse

Awesome Treehouses from Wooden Sheds

Treehouses aren't only for kids anymore. Some amazing treehouses captivate the imagination of the kid in us. Here is a couple from Dover, Massachusetts that built a platform themselves and then had Shed Unlimited build a wooden shed on top. Then Lauren and her husband then finished the interior.

Kids Playhouse

Children love playing in playhouses or clubhouses. Choose a quaint wooden shed then added shutters, planters, a swing on the front porch, and decorative trim. Create a playhouse the kids will spend hours outside enjoying. When the children outgrow it, you can use it as storage.

Pool house From a Wooden Shed

Wooden Sheds Make Amazing Pool Houses

A pool house makes a very nice addition to your pool. It provides a place for people to change into their bathing suits. It also will keep you from having to clean up water trails in the house. And it provides a place to store pool things such as floats, goggles, fins, snorkels, balls, and other toys. Not everyone wants to swim and may get tired of being in the hot sun. This will provide a place to be near family and friends.

Start with a design like this modern shed and add drywall, flooring, and maybe an ac unit. This depends on the purpose of the pool house.

What a terrific shed! It is exactly what we ordered and is very well built. Customer service was wonderful to work with. And then there was the  delivery... Absolutely AMAZING! Imagine getting a 28x14 building up narrow and twisting roads to the top of the Blue Ridge Mountains... I still can't believe the driver and "mule" managed it - but they certainly did. A couple time I closed my eyes thinking our building was a goner, but, nope it was placed perfectly. Afterward I asked the driver about it - he smiled and said only that, "this one was a bit more of a challenge."  Thank you Sheds Unlimited!

I worked with Sheds-unlimited over the phone. They explained to me how to prep the site. Took about 1 day to level the ground build the base and add the stone.
The Shed showed up as promised in about 20 minutes it was off the truck and in place. What I like the best is everyone knows what they are doing at Sheds-unlimited no messing around or problems. Price was excellent and shed is extremely well built.

The garage we ordered was absolutely beautiful and better than we imagined. The people who we communicated with were extremely easy to speak with. They answered all our questions with great deal of knowledge. The delivery was exactly as promised and also very professional. I would absolutely recommend sheds unlimited to everyone who is looking for a great product and great price.

Michael from Congers New York

I am very pleased with the shed. Was delivered as described. Product, service and delivery where great at a fair price.

Michael Karl from Wharton, NJ

I had my custom 12x16 shed delivered recently and like other people who have given reviews I was equally amazed by how one person could deliver the shed and professionally install it flawlessly. My wife and I visited their location in Gap, PA to view the many designs and options available and were very pleased with the service, knowledge and experience. The final product is very well designed, bulit and looks great! Would highly recommend Sheds Unlimited.

Brian from Mullica Hill, NJ

I purchased a 12x28 Economy Workshop Garage. At first we wanted a pre-fab garage but changed it to a build on site. It took 6 weeks to schedule delivery, but two days before deliver sheds unlimited called to reschedule. After speaking with several representatives, they were able to build my garage a day after the original date. When they arrived, my order was incorrect and missing items. It took another trip to finish. When the representative came to complete the work, he handed my fiancée a reimbursement check. Although my first impression of sheds unlimited wasn’t great, they did everything in their power to correct the situation. The garage looks great and is well built.

Deborah from Randallstown, MD

Sheds Unlimited was recommended to us by a friend. We couldn't be happier with our one car garage for Ken's showcar! We worked with Ben Shue & James King. They could not have been nicer or more helpful or efficient as we designed our garage! We had a lot of problems with our town building codes, but Sheds Unlimited helped us every step of the way. Then we watched one Friday as the truck with our garage pieces arrived and 2 young men worked 17 hrs putting our garage together! Talk about efficient!! Amazing, and as polite as good be! We would recommend this company to everyone!!

Debra & Ken Cooke from Brick, NJ

For 15 months, we had worked with an architect and a couple of builders to develop a plan for an over-sized two car garage. All of the options seemed way too expensive and time consuming to seriously consider. We discovered Sheds Unlimited after searching online for ideas and we found a solution that was better than we had envisioned. Not only did their standard 24’ x 36’ design include the huge loft, their engineers helped to tailor the configuration to incorporate a workshop, larger windows, additional doors and extra-tall ceilings.

We have some home renovation experience and had a desire to be more involved with the project as our own general contractor. Sheds Unlimited team was perfect partner as we navigated the design, permitting and construction phases. They are true professionals and ensured our job went as smooth as possible by pointing out key details that they knew were required to meet local code requirements. Along the way when we ran into inevitable snags that come with a construction project like ours (ours was pretty tricky on a steep grade and down a 100’ gravel driveway), Sheds Unlimited was totally responsive and typically resolved the issues the next day to keep us moving forward.

We live in a long established neighborhood and there was some apprehension from others in the community over the project. Since completion, we’ve received a number of compliments from our neighbors who have remarked about the new building including: “…I can’t believe how well the new garage matches the house – it’s a perfect fit“ and “…it looks like it’s been there the whole time. Your builder did a great job!”

After living with the new garage for more than a year now we continue to be impressed with the quality of the workmanship. We don’t write very many reviews but we had such a great experience with Sheds Unlimited we felt it necessary to pay compliments when they’re really (over)due.

Thank you Sheds Unlimited!!!

Greg & Amy from Fairfax, VA

When our church was presented with a storage need we started looking for a shed. Fortunately we were led to Sheds Unlimited. Austin, who walked us through the the options,was very patient and answered all our questions and never let on how little we knew about shed construction. He sent requested support diagrams and information for our congregational presentation and permit request. Everything went smoothly and we are very happy. Thank you Austin and the staff and owners of Sheds Unlimited Inc. it has been a pleasure doing business with you. Too bad you only let me give you 5 deserve MORE!

New Life Community Church from Huntingdon Valley, PA

Prior to receiving an email from Sheds Unlimited asking if I would like to submit a review, I had already sent them an email stating what a great experience we had in purchasing our shed. My mom moved in with us and I needed the shed ASAP, and Austin was able to fit us in quickly. I ordered the shed over the phone after I saw it online . I spoke to Mark and he was very helpful and got the ordered placed asap, and he followed up with some instructions and such. The shed was delivered by Nate - and this guy makes what is probably a hard job look easy. The unloading, moving , and placement of the shed by Nate was something to watch. This team, and I am sure there are others, are great to work with. And the shed looks beautiful and is well constructed.
