A Backyard Design Studio for Swoon Sewing Patterns

Backyard Design Studio

The Journey of a Backyard Design Studio

Today we have a journey to take and a story to tell. The stroll won’t use expensive fuel and you can remain planted in your favorite chair for the duration! As you may have guessed from the title, the story is one of sewing patterns, design and a creative couple turning a shed into a design and sewing studio.

Are you beginning to swoon?

Alicia started Swoon Sewing Patterns after experiencing frustration trying to use existing, hard to follow sewing patterns she found here and there. Her goal was to create patterns that were easy to follow and produced a very beautiful end product that the seamstress could show of proudly. With a background in graphic design, the move from design to making easy to follow sewing patterns came naturally. She soon had a following.

At first, she held on to her job in graphic design but was surprised how quickly her newfound side job became successful. Within a short time, she was able to quit her full-time job and throw herself into what she loved doing most. What Alicia enjoys most is creating patterns that others can use to make beautiful bags. In an interview she explained her passion for sewing saying:

It's not so much about what I can do but what I can help other people do.

Alicia Meets Sheds Unlimited

Her story and that of Sheds Unlimited converged when her husband was trying to convince her to move to a new home. She finally agreed to move if he would help her build a small workspace to continue her rewarding work.

They soon decided that tackling a sewing and design studio alone was not the best choice and began searching online for solutions. That was when Alicia discovered the Two Story Legacy Sheds at Sheds Unlimited.

Alicia ordered a Two Story Shed and within weeks the production phase began in the shed manufacturing facility in PA. At the same time, Alicia was busy preparing a sturdy concrete pad where the portable storage building would sit when it arrived. There’s no substitute for a sturdy level spot for a shed of any kind, but this was especially important since she would be spending lots of time in the studio and this building should last her a lifetime!

When the time came for delivery, setup of the two-story shed only took around 4 hours to complete, says Alicia. Everything for the Backyard Design Studio was prefabricated and ready to set in place in two sections with a crane. Then the corner stairway was installed and a few finishing touches were added to complete the deal! It all seemed like a breeze to assemble with all the precision work done ahead of time by the Sheds Unlimited designers and builders.

Alicia saved herself (and her husband) much hard work by simply buying a ready-to-go building!

Finishing the Backyard Design Studio

Now came the hard work for Alicia and her husband. Everything they could do on their own, they attempted to do. Her husband went to work with electrical, insulation and installing a mini-split for heating and a/c and Alicia worked at painting doors etc. Electric was brought in a via ditch digging machine rented from a local rental store. It was amazing what they found at local stores to complete such a project. Slowly the pieces were coming together!

After installing the drywall, a friend Chris offered a willing hand and finished the drywall. A mini-split unit was a great and economical way to heat and cool this backyard design studio. It does the job of keeping Alicia's Design Studio (and did we mention a soap making shop) comfortable year-round.

Step-by-step the sewing and design studio took shape and each step brought Alicia closer to her own lovely She Shed where she could think, dream and create! After the months of hard work and attending to the many details, Alicia was itching to get back to the real work which she loved most. It was an exhausting project, but finally, the happy day came when it was time to move in! Although she had plans to build a little deck off the patio doors, keep working on the grass, and install a gutter with a rain barrel, the studio was now calling her name!

Moving in and Setting up Shop in the Design and Sewing Studio

It was a smashing success! The mix of a prefab 14x24 Legacy Two Story Shed and the DIY skill set her and her husband brought to the table has changed her life! Alicia’s finished studio is enough to make a serious designer swoon...almost...

The small backyard studio now helps Alicia serve her 60,000+ Facebook followers with new bag pattern designs that make any person who enjoys sewing feel good about the finished product. Alicia says what she likes best about her job is the satisfaction that she gives others when they finish a gorgeous bag.

Another one of my hobbies is soap making and the upstairs space is my new soaping room.

Alicia also has other hobbies and one of them found a home on the second floor of her design and sewing studio. Walk up the beautifully finished stairs and you will find a hobby soaping room where Alicia mixes and makes soaps just for fun!

Working with High Point Buildings was a pleasure from beginning to end.  The salesperson,  Donna, was knowledgeable and courteous . We had to have our shed built on site and the two men who did the job were efficient and friendly.  We would definitely recommend this company. 

Romuald Bogdan from Rosedale, MD

From our initial phone contact to the final delivery, the service, quality, and communication was A-ONE. We shopped extensively for a shed in Bucks County. We then called Sheds Unlimited spoke to Kyle, who did such a great job answering our questions, we decided to take a 60 mile ride to Sheds Unlimited. We were glad we did. The ease of the sale, the no pressure approach, the excellent price, the superior quality, the efficient delivery,made the whole process enjoyable.
My recommendation: do not waste your time, go to sheds unlimited for complete satisfaction.

Ben G from Staten Island , NY

When we decided we needed a new shed I started looking around our area but could not believe the prices! I then decided to check the internet. The prices were unbelievable at most of those places also, until I found Sheds Unlimited! The same quality as all the others at much lower prices. We now have a beautiful shed that we love. I wouldn't buy one anywhere else!

Diane from Mechanicsburg, Pa.

My new garage looks like it was built with the house. The construction quality is impecable. Nothing but thumbs up to all that were involved from my sale to delivery and delivery was a sight to see as my garage came down my street and in my driveway by one man who was very professional at his job knowing every step he could take safely. JOB WELL DONE SHEDS UNLIMITED !!!!!

Joe Capobianco from East Meadow NY

Stellar experience from beginning to end. Time line was better than what we expected. Communication by internet was informative and the pay off was the man that made the delivery. This fellow had the longest trailer I ever saw. He came into my town onto my small street, unloaded his mule, unloaded our shed and in less than 15 minutes set the shed on our slab. This man is a real pro and a good testimony for Sheds Unlimited.

To begin with I had great confidence in Sheds Unlimited before even meeting them or talking to them. Having a Pennsylvania German ancestry, which is not that different from the Amish, I know how hardworking this group is. Both of my parents grew up on farms and it was always work before pleasure. Sheds Unlimited did a very thorough job of making sure I got the exact shed that I wanted. They were in touch with a lot of planning questions to make sure I was happy with what I got and were very specific and detailed. And when the 2 men arrived here with the material to build the shed, I could tell right away that they were going to do a good job. One of the young men was Amish and even though he was nice and polite, he worked every single second he was here without taking any breaks. The shed was up and complete in a couple hours. The work ethic of the Amish is similar to the Pennsylvania German work ethic and they did not disappoint. And of course the shed looks great. You will be glad you hired Sheds Unlimited.
