Modern-Shed provides solutions for limited living and storage space problems. You might be considering a home addition,
converting current space such as a garage, bedroom, attic, basement, bonus room or even enclosing a carport in order to give you the extra space
you need. Modern-Shed provides the ultimate solution, as it provides not only more room, but private space only steps from
your main home. If you need more room for a home office, an exercise room, craft space, art or music studio, man cave, diva den, photography studio, hobby
room, writers den, meditation room, a play room or just a place to hang out and relax in your garden, Modern-Shed is for you.
Modern-Shed was the innovator creator of the highest quality structure of its kind. Pre-fabricated panels can be carried into or around tight spaces
for fast assembly. Instead of converting your garage or transforming your carport or turning your spare bedroom or basement into your new,
needed space, consider a new style of shed – from the originator of the Modern-Shed concept. Imagine a quiet space for yourself or a space to send the kids to play.
Modern-Sheds are not really restricted in size, however, we categorize them as Small, Medium and Large where a structure which is 8’ in depth (front to back) is “small”. Any of our sheds can be manufactured to be as long as you want. For example, an 8’ deep shed could be 6’ long or 24’ long and anything in between. The majority of our small structures are used for storage space or small personal space such as a small home office, art or craft room or meditation-yoga studio. It is amazing what can fit into a space less than 100 square feet. Wouldn’t it be nice to not have all that mess on the dining room table; being able to have a dedicated space to your craft or home based business. An advantage of a small shed is that it most likely would not require a building permit and can fit into tighter spaces and could more easily adhere to some set-back or height restrictions. All options are available on all sizes of sheds such as a huge variety of window and door options, siding options, insulation, and interior wall and ceiling options. This size could easily be utilized as a kid’s playroom or bunk house. Even used solely as storage space, this is one stylish backyard shed. Musicians will love this size to store all their gear in. Especially when a radiant floor heat system is installed.
The most popular size and use for a Modern-Shed is a 10x12 home office. At 120 square feet* may not require a building permit in many jurisdictions. A better alternative than home additions which are extremely expensive and time-consuming. Modern-Shed can provide the complete shell – fully insulated with finished ceiling and walls. All you have to do is provide your flooring of choice, electricity and furniture! Having a separate room away from the hubbub of the home can be extremely helpful! If used for an office, it may also be tax-deductible (check with your tax advisor) and when combined with money saved from reduced commuting, offsets the cost of the structure. 10x12 units are definitely the most popular and cost effective size and can usually be installed on simple pier pads. Installation usually happens within 2-4 days. Transforming your garage or spare bedroom or basement can displace the purpose for those spaces. Owning a Modern-Shed is not only green, it reduces stress and adds value to the property. Our clients love the fact they can go mere steps to their home office or studio. Photographers, artists, corporate heads, you name it, realize that working from a home office contributes to their lives significantly. This size also makes a great yoga studio, meditation room and is the perfect size for just getting away into your personal space. A yoga or meditation space is best quiet, which may not be the case if a room in the house is used
Requiring a bit larger space -- for an art studio, large office, home gym, man cave or diva den or guest studio? Artists, whether professional or hobbyists, encompassing all aspects of art such as painting, photography, sewing or music usually desire a space they can “get messy” in and don’t have to worry about cleaning up and all have smells and or sounds which may be undesirable, at least at times, within the home itself. A Modern-Shed provides the ultimate solution. The clerestory windows bring in natural light craved by most artists. Our current customers rave about their Modern-Art Studio. Utilizing a Modern-Shed for personal space does not usurp the use of the family garage either. A Modern-Exercise room or gym can provide a workout space where you can blare music if you desire without bothering anyone else in the home. Modern-Sheds can be customized with higher ceilings or more insulation and as few or as many windows or doors as you want. Many cities allow an ADU (Additional Dwelling Unit) or small guest suite depending on the size of the building lot. The guest cottage can double as a home office, yoga studio, exercise space or other needed space. Turning the basement, carport or garage into a gym, guest room or home office can result in a damp-feeling room. The light, airy feel of a Modern-Shed will provide you and your guests with privacy, warmth and convenience, not to mention higher property value.
