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.

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.

Average Rating

We live on the Chesapeake Bay, less than 100 feet from the water. Due to our elevation our home, which was built in 1939, has never flooded. It is, however, included in a FEMA-designated flood zone. In order to add on to our home we would be forced to raise our home to current federal standards, a $40,000 expense that would provide no additional living area. Your two-story building allowed us to have the space we needed at half the cost of raising our existing space. We were blown away with the quality of the construction and the professionalism and expertise of the two technicians who delivered and quickly installed it. With increasing government regulations making it harder to build or remodel near the shore, Sheds Unlimited's quality-built structure hit a home run with THIS waterfront home-owner. I highly recommend them to everyone.

Thank you Shed's Unlimited!

I found you by doing research on the internet and boy am I glad I did. The quality of my shed is very impressive. We have a problem with wood burrowing bees here and there is not one inch of exposed wood on the whole shed. I am sorry winter is approaching because I have big plans to turn this shed into my work room. Your prices are very fair compared to what you get at the big box home supply stores. My only regret is that I did not get my shed slightly bigger. Thanks again guys, I am very happy and I am recommending you to my neighbors.

Matthew Coulby from Purcellville ,Va



We had a great experience all around.
Excellent communication and customer
service. The men who came to our home
and built the shed, were friendly and
efficient. Just two of them had the shed
put together in one afternoon.
Thanks so much.

Sheds Unlimited rocks! My 12 x 22 garage was delivered within one month of my initial call to the company. The entire experience was hassle-free and the company reps were courteous, honest and very customer oriented. No hidden fees and the quality of the structure is excellent. I have recommended Sheds Unlimited to several of my friends.

Ren from Great Falls, VA

I had a terrific experience Sheds Unlimited, beginning with my contact with Kyle in sales. He gave me a very reasonable estimate for exactly what I wanted for my horses. Austin handled shipping to my location on an expedited basis, and Shane delivered it- which was no easy task given the dirt road and tree limbs. And the total cost was less than if I had had it built onsite.
