A Home Workshop Sewing Room

Mary Jane's Sewing Room

When Mary Jane McCarty was looking for a backyard sewing studio, she went shopping in Lancaster County among the builders of storage sheds in PA. She ended up at Sheds Unlimited of Morgantown, PA where Mary Jane purchased a 12×30 Classic Garden Storage Shed and transformed it into a beautiful backyard studio which she uses as a sewing room.

Jane Dagmi writes that “Mary Jane simply wanted a bright and inspired place to create. The talented seamstress, who fabricates one-of-a-kind pillows, lampshades, and other soft goods from mostly antique European textiles, was tired of working in a dark, cold basement. She looked into renting a space in town, but the cost was prohibitive. She entertained building an addition onto her home, but decided against the cost. Then one day Mary Jane looked at her sturdy and useful Amish garden shed and had an epiphany (BobVilla).”

Mary Jane simply wanted a bright and inspired place to create...(she) was tired of working in a dark, cold basement.

She visited Sheds Unlimited soon thereafter and was impressed by the company and the sheds they produced. They were able to provide a custom-made backyard studio workshop with insulated windows and glass doors to allow for plenty of interior light for this storage shed turned home studio workshop. Within about six weeks, Sheds Unlimited had built the backyard shed studio and delivered it as a unit to her property in Bucks County, PA.

Next, Mary Jane had the interior of her storage shed insulated and finished to make her backyard sewing studio a homey and warm place to work. Mary Jane says the entire cost of the backyard studio project including the storage shed, insulation, site prep and electrical hookup was around $10,000.00.If you are looking for a small backyard studio for work, a prefab home office or for a backyard retreat, check out the many options in our line of backyard storage sheds. We even offer Two-Story Portable Buildings which could be transformed into a beautiful backyard studio.

Answered all our questions before we bought the shed. Patient with our questions, friendly and helpful. No pressure. Delivery was a breeze. Everyone is professional, nice, and knowledgeable . What a pleasure! Already recommended to friends.

Paul & Kathy Jones from Wilmington, DE

We love our shed. An amazing company to deal with. The shed is made perfectly and they went out of their way to please us. The delivery was exceptional. We are very, very, very, pleased.

From the beginning of the process through the completion of the building I have been consistently pleased and thrilled with the positive attitude and high level of integrity of everyone I have dealt with at Sheds Unlimited. The designer and project managers were patient, thorough and competent. This was a four car garage with space for an apartment upstairs, multiple dormers being built on a stepped foundation. The building was put up in 3.5 days. I was told all along that it would take 3-4 days and I simply did not believe that it could happen that quickly. It did. The three young men who did the actual construction were extremely professional and a delight to have with us for that week. I am completely satisfied with my new garage. It's a dream come true!!

Phil from Washington CT

Very pleased with the Shed! Very quick turnaround on the custom shed I ordered. Came exactly as requested and the standard materials are very good quality. The shelf and ramp I added are top notch. Shed comes with locks and keys as well!

The mule made delivery very easy, as there is no way a truck would have made it into our yard. Shane, who delivered the shed, was great and even advised be to trim back a bush so it didn't scratch the paint on the shed!

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Sheds Unlimited to anyone.

Jeff Zamorski from West Chester, PA

Sheds unlimited did a great job facilitating the shed process. The communication was excellent. Mark was great explaining the process and keeping me informed every step of the way. The delivery guy was great and patient. We needed more doors added to our shed when the service crew arrived they were very efficient. Over all 100% satisfaction with Sheds Unlimited.

Hello Delmar;

Several reasons for this message.
First of all I must say that the entire process of doing business with you and everyone in your company that I have dealt with has surpassed my satisfaction and expectations.
From our first meeting at your office to the many many many phone calls i made to you with questions and/or changes you were always willing to take the time to answer my questions and provide the information that i needed and explained why i could or could not or should or should not do certain things. You always took the time to make sure I understood why or why not.
My site prep and your busy schedule took us to a later date than anticipated but James King along with good weather made it all happen on December 18th.
I told James several times there was no way they could get the truck/trailer to the job site ---but--- 7 a.m. the truck and trailer and three man crew are all on the site which I still don't know how they accomplished.
Speaking of the crew and the construction, myself and the entire neighborhood were beyond impressed. Three young men that are obviously very well beyond their years in knowledge and professionalism. I can't say enough good things about them. To watch them work is a treat. It's like they can read each others minds. They each know what to do, when to do it, and rarely even need to speak to each other. They just work and work and waste no time. They were kind and courteous as well. I was impressed as you can tell, and many neighbors were as well. Please pass on my best wishes to Chris who suffered the fall. Here is an example of what kind of employee he is------as I am driving him to the hospital after his fall we are having a conversation about work and he says "I love my job and this kind of work".
As you can tell I am beyond satisfied but I do have one issue with the building. There is one substantial leak in the roof. It is in the area of the dormer and enters the building in a joint between two sheets of osb very near the dormer. It drips from the roof down to the concrete floor as it is above the open area of the attic floor. I will be doing finish work to the attic area soon and obviously the leak must be repaired prior to that however I do not expect anyone to repair a roof in bad weather but please keep this in mind and handle as soon as safely possible. I was aware of the leak prior to your cashing my final check but felt no need to stop pay and hold back any portion until leak is repaired as I certainly trust you will handle it as soon as safely possible.
Thanks again for everything !

Unbelievable group of individuals that produce an extremely high quality product. My 10x14 ft shed was built to the highest standards. Nothing exists anywhere here in the finger lakes region that was even close. Pictures  depict the product very well. But delivery, confirmation on all levels with the build and follow up were  beyond excellent. This is hands down the best construction firm for garages and sheds that I have seen. Extremely honest. Their delivery equipment and tools are the best. New hydraulic heavy duty tilting trailer and the best of tools. They are extremely fast but never sacrifice quality for speed. Very enjoyable to do business with...would recommend to anyone. You get what you pay for.  They are the best... !!! Will use them again... and they are nearly 300 miles away.
