The new craze in real estate is the tiny house. I totally get the appeal of the tiny home, save money and still have something you own… but I have to wonder about quality of life. Instead of getting a “normal” backyard shed. For me I know I love having space and areas for specific things I like to do. So, when I found out about “Shedquarters” miniature studios (for offices and living structures), that are small enough to fit in someone’s back yard I was totally intrigued.I know, I know you are thinking backyard shed.. those barn looking things made of plywood that they sell at the side of the road and cost thousands. They end up in the back yard with the lawnmowers and yard stuff in them and become a bit of an eye soar after years of wind and rain and the grass growing around them.
But “Shedquarters” are surely a step above the traditional backyard shed.
Here are some that I totally would consider getting. And the best part they are kind of affordable.
Kanga Room: Based out of Austin, Texas, Kanga Room has backyard studios in three styles: modern, country cottage, and bungalow.
The basic package is an 8×8-foot shed that starts around $5,900 and you can add on a bathroom, kitchenette, and front porch for additional cost.
Modern Shed: This Seattle-based company was founded by husband and wife, Ryan Grey Smith and Ahna Holder.
They create flat-packed prefab structures. Basic 8×10 sheds start at $6,900.
So now that you know about the new thing in backyard sheds what do you think? Do you want to get one? Let me know your thoughts on this potential addition to you home.
