Rawlings Design, Inc.
Designed by Eric Rawlings, AIA, LEED AP and built by Arlene Dean. This speculative house was built and sold in 2011. This is a modern example of a Prairie Style Four Square. Located in a neighborhood with Craftsman Bungalows from 1910-20, the design used elements and forms familiar to houses in the area and just arranged in a more modern way. The open plan uses a central stair to organize and separate the public and private spaces on the main level.

Bridgewater
Garage apartments are frequently found in older urban areas. They’re sometimes called 'guest' or 'carriage' houses. This garage remodeling project began with the need for a larger footprint and foundation to accommodate storage on either side of vehicles in the garage, as well as extra storage space for lawn and garden equipment. The garage door is a standard 16 feet wide. The project included the use of bonus room trusses, which opened up the attic space. The additional space can be used for an apartment or home office. See home exteriors for before and after photos of this home, and how the home and garage complement each other.

The Aurora can be labeled as a greenhouse shed combo. It includes four large aluminum windows with tempered glass for safety. On top of that, it features 509 cubic feet of storage space for gardening tools and equipment or plants. With the many windows, light is aplenty. However, there is even the option to add solar shades so you can control the amount of sunlight coming in. In addition, you can add a power ventilation fan to remove excess heat and bring in cool air inside. If you looking to grow plants and vegetables all year around and store stuff, the Aurora greenhouse shed combo is just what you're looking for. It's a customer favorite.

Whether you have a yard or simply a lot of extra stuff, sheds always prove to be useful additions for homeowners. While it's above all an extra storage building, the right shed design can serve multiple functions, such as doubling as a workspace or an outdoor laundry room. Depending on how you plan to use it, there are several shed ideas for you to consider.

What size shed do I need?

Before embarking on any type of shed remodeling project, it’s always useful to browse a few shed photos and save any inspirational shed design ideas to a Houzz Ideabook. Before making any purchases, assess your newly accumulated shed pictures and shed ideas, and decide exactly what you will be storing in your unit, as well as where you plan to place it. Are you going to be storing lawn equipment or smaller gardening tools? Will you be working inside your storage building, or will it be used solely for storage? The purpose of your storage building will of course determine how large the building should be. In the end, the overall size is important, but so is the size of the entrance — be sure to measure your largest piece of equipment to ensure it fits through the frame.

What should I consider in regard to the shed design?

As you consider various shed designs and fall in love with the huge range of shed remodeling ideas on Houzz, don’t forget that your unit will be on the same property as your home, so try to choose a design that will be complementary. If your home is done in vinyl siding, consider finishing your building in the same material. Or, reflect similar features that are seen in your home, like an arched window. You can even accessorize it as if it were a home with window boxes or shutters for a decorative touch.

What type of accessories are available for garden sheds?

When it comes to shed decorating ideas, you may find that investing in a few accessories may be worth your while depending on what you plan to store in your building. Make more room in your unit by including a loft, or add sunlight and fresh air with windows or skylights. Shelves will help to organize your outdoor items, while a workbench will aide in activities you plan to pursue inside the unit.

What else can I use my shed for?

As you browse various shed ideas, you’ll see that there are many shed designs to choose from — you can really use this area for anything! If living space is more of an issue than storage, you can always convert your shed into an extra room. Sheds makes fun playhouses or outdoor playrooms; they can also work as home offices, guest bedrooms or craft rooms! If you're turning it into a fully developed space, make sure it complies with local ordinances and has enough ventilation, light and insulation for seasonal temperature changes. In terms of shed decor, approach decorating this space as you would any other room in your house. If you are creating an extension of your home, you can either stick to your current interior style or do something completely different since this is a detached
