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.

I congratulate the entire crew of Sheds Unlimited for their professionalism, skill, and passion. Ben did an excellent job in completing the order and providing critical information. James expertly coordinated the pre-production and delivery ahead of schedule. The construction team of John and Matthew were dedicated and extremely proficient in their tasks in erecting the building. Due to rain the team was forced to make a second trip and enthusiastically finished the construction. The completed 24' by 16' building looks marvelous. The Sheds Unlimited crew can be proud of their efforts, and I am absolutely delighted to have acquired their services. I highly recommend Sheds Unlimited.

We received the MaxiBarn August 29, 2013 and it has been the best thing we have purchased in a number of years. It was transported to us from Gap, Pensylvania by a very professional young gentleman who knew exactly what to do to place it on the pad we provided. Nothing was disturbed on the lawn and we were very pleased with the delivery and set up procedure. It provides enough space to house my husband's lawn equipment with remaining space for other storage purposes. The maxi barn was painted per our specifications and matches the garage and house perfectly. We requested modifications for the placement of the 2 windows and doors and Sheds Unlimited was able to accomodate perfectly.
I definitely would recommend Sheds Unlimited for not only reasonableness of cost but also for their professional services and providing us with a very well built shed.

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!!!

Great purchase experience. Vladimir was very pleasant. Austin the delivery man did a great job in placing the shed in place. He was fast and efficient. My only surprise was to see that the roof was notmadeof plywood but particle board.
