Do I need an outdoor studio?

As separate units, outdoor studios make great home offices or creative spaces, because they provide a private, personalized room away from chaotic household noise. They are especially nice when you own your own business, and they can even be turned into a private guesthouse or in-law suite for visiting family and friends. Although they are often on the pricey side, think of them as extensions of your house; they can easily be worth the big price tag.

How can I use a storage shed?

If you’re looking for storage instead of living space, a shed is a more realistic and less expensive option. Sheds are great for storing garden or lawn supplies and seasonal accessories, such as outdoor umbrellas, cushions and pool toys. A shed can also be turned into a mini man cave by planning it as a workspace or woodshed. Models that come with windows and porches and in fun designs can even become a kids’ playhouse when good weather rolls around. Because of its endless versatility, a shed will always be a worthy purchase — and may even boost resale value when you decide to sell your home.
