We are here to serve you and provide you with a backyard studio workshop, a retreat building, or whatever you need to create enough space to work or relax.

Why build a backyard workshop shed?

Now, you may be asking yourself, “Why would I want a backyard workshop?”. Well, the answer is quite simple, a backyard workshop can help you solve a multitude of problems. If you need a quiet place to work away from the distractions back home, then building a backyard workshop is the way to go! Or maybe you just want a place to relax and get away for a bit, well your workshop shed is the perfect place to be!

How to turn your shed into a workshop

Here’s everything you need to turn your shed into a workshop:

  • Run electricity so you have power. You’ll want to be able to power your tools as well as power your lighting.
  • Install a workbench. A workbench is essential for a workshop shed so that you have a place to get your work done.
  • Insulate your shed (optional). If you live in an area where the weather gets unbearably cold or hot, you may want to consider insulating your shed. Insulation can also help prevent moisture build-up and mold, and aid in increasing your workshop’s life span.
  • Install pegboards and shelving. It’s important to keep your backyard workshop shed organized so that you don’t lose things while working on your projects.

Mary’s Backyard Workshop

backyard studio workshop

Mary Jane McCarty was looking to move her small home-based sewing business out of the dark basement when she pondered the idea of buying one of those Amish storage sheds and finishing it out for a small new backyard workshop. That was when she came across Sheds Unlimited and placed an order for a Classic Storage Shed which was customized to the tee to meet her needs. She added a large window on the end to allow for plenty of light into the backyard studio and ordered 15 light double doors for her new backyard workshop.

When the backyard workshop shed arrived six weeks after placing the order, she hired local contractors to finish the inside with insulation, electricity, and flooring. The backyard studio shed was made ready to be used in a very short time and for a cheap backyard studio price. The backyard workshop price was $10,579 with all the interior work completed.
