Invest in a multi-purpose shed

Sheds are often one of the most over-looked buildings on an acreage. Create a unique space for your homestead using Studio Shed, a shed that adds storage and style.
  • Green additions

    Studio Shed founders Mike Koenig and Jeremy Horgan-Kobelski have created a full service design-build firm for backyard sheds, garages, and studio spaces. Originally their goal was to create an outdoor living space for more room than their small houses were giving them. These innovative sheds are not only unique in shape, but they're also unique in their construction. They use a variety of environmental-friendly building materials, including 100% recycled aluminum-frame windows and metal siding.

    The shed pictured here serves as a storage room and additional living space.

Lifestyle shed prices begin at $8,700 for an 8x10, $24,350 for an 12x28. If looking for a garage, expect to spend $15,600 for an 12x20, $49,900 for an 16x40 building.

  • No rentals here

    Bennett was looking for a space to rent, but everything was too expensive and she didn't feel like sharing the space. She started her online search by looking for build-your-own-garden sheds, but realized she wanted someone else to build it for her. After that realization, she decided on Studio Shed.
