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 Gap, 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.

The featured building here is one of our Classic Amish Storage Sheds built in Lancaster County, PA.

It has been a pleasure working with Shed Unlimited. They installed a barn for me in less than 2 days. Mark and his two journeymen were amazing to watch. Wish I had a few employee's like them. The workmanship and quality was outstanding. Would recommend Sheds Unlimited to all. Thanks for your hard work.

Gary from EHT NJ

Great experience from beginning to end. We are well satisfied with the construction and delivery of our shed. We have had several neighbors comment that the shed looks nice. I would recommend Sheds Unlimited without a second thought.

Sanford Alabovitz from Reading, PA

I can't imagine being any more pleased than I am with my shed. It is very well built and it lets in plenty of natural light. The entire process was clearly communicated, as well as efficient and professional.

From beginning to end, the service was outstanding. I loved the fact that I could buy a prefabricated shed that was such good quality and good looking for such a reasonable price. It is exactly what I wanted and needed without having to hire anyone to build it. Everything was seamless!

Claire Felix from Southampton, NY

After searching locally for months for a shed that would accommodate my needs, an online search directed me to Sheds Unlimited. The prices quoted online were far better than the prices I had seen for comparable sheds, and their quality was superior. The customer service was also top notch- when they said they would deliver the shed, they did...right on time. They placed the shed exactly where I wanted it- in less than 30 minutes. Very professional and a pleasure to do business with. I highly recommend Sheds Unlimited.

Geoff Obici from Hawley, PA

Very satisfied with the purchase of my shed. Excellent quality at a great price. Friendly staff, great to work with. I am still amazed at how one man was able to set the shed in such a tight location in my yard with such ease. Great job and great shed!

Rob from Jefferson Twp, NJ

Delivery was on time , price of shed was well below competitors prices, delivery men were able to place our shed where other companies would not even try, I would highly recommend Sheds Unlimited!!

Tom Harwood from Frederick

Great company to work with. Design and planning was simple and straight-forward. Delivery was prompt and set up was easy. I couldn't be more pleased with my new shed.

Martha from MD

Had some anxiety when you can't see items in person. We heard very good things about Sheds Unlimited and decided to give them a try.
From the very first phone call we knew we were in good hands (Austin) and everyone there knew their job. They worked with us from picking all the extras and details to the delivery date. When the shed arrived our driver, Shane, was courteous and knew exactly what to do. They were even earlier than expected. We did shop around and found the price to be as good if not better than others. The shed is well built and beautiful. The only thing we have to do is fill it! Thanks
