Can I live in the shed?

Like your house, a shed is framed with wood and then a structural panel is added on the outside of the framing. To make the shed livable as a Tiny House, Man cave, or She Shed you will need a few modifications: upgrade to the insulated windows and doors, add insulation, and install electric (and plumbing if desired).

Keep in mind that if the shed will be used for a permanent living space, your town may have requirements and restrictions on how the structure is designed or finished. Living in a structure brings it under the international building code and that does require more approvals.
