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.

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.

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.

The shed is very good and what I expected. The standard window are alittle small. It was damaged in shipping and waiting to hear back from company but overall shed is nice.

We LOVE our new shed. The assembly crew were extremely professional and highly skilled. We absolutely recommend Sheds Unlimited

CKSL from Rockville

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!!

We have just received our Classic Woodshop Shed and it is Beautiful!

We started our journey with Sheds Unlimited with Mark Beachey; he walked us through all the different features and price points and was extremely patient with us in our decision process. He was very helpful and knowledgeable. We finally selected the Classic Woodshop Shed and started planning for its arrival. We explained to Mark that we would be traveling and that mid September would be the best time for the Shed to be delivered. Mark stated that that would coincide with their building schedule and we should have no problems getting it delivered in that time frame. Mark was a delight to work with.

We were told in an email that Austin Beachey would be handling the coordination of the delivery and to contact him via email. This is where communication seemed to break down. We sent our email, with a picture of our completed pad, and received no response. We called, to speak to Austin, and the receptionist stated that she could not locate him. We provided our phone number and email address, and were assured that Austin would reply to our phone call. After waiting a week with no response, we called a second time and attempted to speak to Austin, but we were in the mountains and the phone signal was very weak on our end. We were able to let him know that we would send a second email with pad picture to start the delivery planning. The second email was sent, with pad picture, and we received no response. After the third email, we finally heard from Austin and received a tentative delivery date of sometime the following week or the beginning of the week after. No real date was provided. Then we waited and waited and waited. At the end of the first week we sent another email query, and this time Austin responded. He said that he had responded to our most recent communications, but the email that he sent to us with the “delivery date” had gotten stuck in his draft folder. It happens. Chalk it up to electronics. We accepted that and moved on. We were given a delivery date of Monday September 25 at 2:30. GREAT! Finally the shed would be here. Got a call Monday morning on the 25th from Austin stating that the driver was going to be delayed and it was going to be closer to 4:30 pm. No problem. Shed was going to be here at 4:30 … still no problem.

Delivery of the shed: 4:30 p.m. - no shed … 5:30 – no shed. The delivery truck finally showed up around 6:30 p.m.; two hours late. That I dealt with, BUT at 6:30 at night it was starting to get dark. By the time the one and only person that delivered the shed was able to get it off the truck and onto the Mule, it was very dark. We helped guide the driver in getting the shed from the truck to and positioned on the pad. Our lot is 300 feet deep and very dark where he had to place the shed. We had to provide lights for the driver to be able to see to put the shed on the pad. Finally got the shed on the pad and situated around 8:45 pm. Our delivery driver was great and worked very hard to get the job done. We give him 5 stars.

Keys to the shed: We do not have a key to get into the shed. The driver explained that he normally has a Master Key that will open the door and allow us access to the shed's interior to get our set of keys for the shed locks and to inspect the shed. The driver did not have a Master Key to enter the shed. He stated that he had explained this fact to Austin, but that piece of information was not provided when Austin notified us of the later than expected delivery of our shed. The driver explained that, when we called to pay for the shed, we should ask to have a key delivered to us. We’ve had the shed two days, and we have yet to enter our shed to inspect it. When I spoke to the receptionist the next morning, she stated that the company is mailing us a key and it will take about 3 days; we believe the key should have been FedEx’ed overnight.

Recommendations: Have someone personally contact (not via email) the customer regarding the pre delivery and post delivery to ensure everything is on track and all parties are kept informed. This allows all parties involved to communicate any unexpected circumstances and to solve issues before they become problems. Always have two delivery drivers. Getting the shed off of the flat bed, on to the Mule, and moved to the pad is a very impressive operation, but the process is filled with moments of danger. If the delivery driver had gotten hurt, the customer would have had no idea how to give aide … Safety above all else!

The bottom line is that we will highly recommend Shed's Unlimited to friends and family; we would go back to Shed's Unlimited to purchase another shed should we need one; and we were happy with most of the process. We acknowledge that the communication challenges could have been handled better on our end. Thank you ALL for your work in planning, building, scheduling and the delivery of our beautiful new shed.

Bob and Karen Moen from Portsmouth, VA

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

Sheds Unlimited provided great customer service. Due to a number of issues on our end, we needed a longer than typical time for preparation of the site. They willingly worked with us on the timing of the delivery and on-site construction of our new barn-style shed. The crew arrived on time and completed the project in an amazing short time. If you are a cost and quality conscious customer - you will be happy with Sheds Unlimited.

Mary Jones from Baltimore, MD

From the initial phone call to the final nail, I am completely impressed with this company. I had a challenging backyard with steel slopes so they had to install it on site. Every staff was patient, prompt and courteous working with all my changes and edits in the planning. The crew who installed by building worked very hard all day, even through rain to get it up and looking wonderful. There are similar buildings I could have ordered close in CT, but even with the delivery from PA, Sheds Unlimited was a better package overall. My building is a beauty! I highly recommend this company without any reservations!

Leeah Joo from Middlebury, CT

Extremely impressive looking product...excellent installation.....very honest people

My Architect provided Drawings. Sheds built my 4 car Garage. These guys are amazing, professional and quick. If you need a shed/garage these are the guys to do the Job. Thanks Sheds Unlimited!!!

Jim Silverence from Poughkeepsie New York

There was not a single interaction that wasn't outstanding with Sheds Unlimited. I was forced to delay delivery TWICE. That's an issue for a business wanting to clear space of the shed built for me, but they were VERY understanding. When they delivered, it was the exact time frame stated. The delivery guy was a family member the way he was concerned with proper placement. It was VERY difficult spot to manuever and he took his time, was very patient and fantastic attitude, in spite of the challenges. He wanted it to be placed correctly almost if not more than me!! He took time to talk about the shed, gave me the keys to my new structure and even allowed me to pay by credit card. Such a great person to work with and outstanding representative of this outstanding company. The shed itself is OUTSTANDING. Such fantastic quality built (12x8 Workshop). Paint is perfect, everything is perfect!! I could NOT be the price anywhere locally, even INCLUDING the additional cost for delivery, the price was still FAR lower than quotes near me. The is NOTHING you should be concerned about buying from Sheds Unlimited. I've already recommended them to a friend, who is about to order having seen the quality build. I would recommend them to ANYONE (who I liked!!). No worrys. Buy with confidence. Thank you so much Sheds Unlimited, for your quality build, your outstanding people and the pricing that you offer in these tough economic times!! All the best to you!
