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 that she uses as a sewing room.
Jane Dagmi writes that “Mary Jane simply wanted a bright and inspiring 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 (BobVila).”
Mary Jane simply wanted a bright and inspiring 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.
