Is your house crowded?

If you don’t have enough room for a quiet personal office, space for the kids to play, or room for gym equipment, extend your living space with our Home Expansion Package. Home additions and room additions are costly and require specifically placed space in your yard. Our sheds can be placed anywhere on your property. Simply add electricity, and you can transform this shed into an art studio, backyard gym, home office, family game room, or She Shed. 



Home expansion Package Use-case Ideas without a costly house addition

Turn our sheds into a private art studio in your backyard by purchasing our Home Expansion Shed Package

Art Studio

Creating art often means that you need quiet space where you can get messy, and a lot of times a spare room inside your house is not ideal. Transforming your backyard shed into an art studio is an easy and fun solution! Whether you are a professional artist or simply like to paint in your spare time, you can splatter as much paint as you want, keep all of your supplies in one place, and disappear to the backyard whenever creativity strikes.

At-Home Gym

Transform a shed into a convenient at-home gym, complete with your preferred exercise equipment. A dedicated fitness space doesn't have to cost much money, plus it has the added value of being convenient and accessible. The best part is that a small, reasonable home gym could be located in your own backyard.

She Shed

Imagine a She Shed in your backyard. You could decorate it however you please, do whatever you want without interruption, and never have to pick up a mess that someone else created. You could use the space for any hobby—crafting, scrapbooking, painting, reading, or writing. All that's required is a table, lighting, and some chairs. To make it homey, bring in area rugs, bookshelves, wall decor, and anything else you dream up.

Turn our Home Expansion shed into your own home office!

Home Office

If you need a home office or personal workspace, consider relocating. Sure, that sounds expensive, but it doesn’t need to be! There’s no reason to buy a larger house or even add a pricey addition to your home; just convert a shed into an office. It’s affordable and practical. If you own your home and you have available space in your backyard, this solution is ideal. Our sheds offer plenty of space for storing files, are protected from the elements to keep electronics safe, and more.

Game Room

A backyard shed game room can provide hours of fun for an entire family. It's also a solution to typical childhood boredom, especially on rainy days. When the luxury of back-to-back snow days wears off, having a game room gives children a place to shake off cabin fever. For adolescents and teens, this space, separate from the house, gives them the extra privacy they're craving. Having a game room in your backyard a great way to ensure your children are safe and under adequate supervision.
