When we hear the word “office”, many people think of large buildings filled with cubicles in a business complex somewhere downtown. For decades this was the prevailing idea because it was how offices were. But more and more people are finding new, diverse, and exciting places to do business. They still work an “office job”, but not all of them are in a traditional office.
Whether telecommuting or running their own business, many are working from home instead of commuting. A home office can be a great way to work while enjoying the comforts of home. But what if your house doesn’t have room for an office? Some people are addressing this with a very creative home office solution. Some people are turning backyard sheds into stylish, functional home offices that combine function with simplicity.
If you find yourself wanting to know more about this alternative solution, or maybe even want to build one for yourself, here’s some DIY backyard office shed information along with a few tips.
Make sure you can build one
Before you start anything on your DIY office shed, check local building codes. Building codes vary from place to place and knowing exactly what you need to be up to code is extremely important.
Make a plan
Write down what you want out of the office and what you’ll be doing in it. This will help you determine how large your backyard office shed needs to be. If you’re looking for a simple desk set up, a smaller shed will do just fine. If you’re looking to actually do business in your new office, meet with clients, or even have another person working in there with you, you’ll probably need a larger structure to meet your needs.
Home office sheds have grown in popularity in recent years as more and more people are able to make a living working from home. This means there are a lot of options for those wanting one of their very own. There are numerous companies that will build the entire backyard office shed for you, from foundation to interior furnishing, but these can quickly get expensive from a couple thousand dollars all the way to as much as a full-sized house.
But a backyard office shed can also be a DIY project. This can involve completely repurposing an existing shed or buying a pre-fabricated unit that you assemble and furnish yourself.
Made-to-order offices are an easier home office solution, but are also much more expensive. If you want to save money, it’s best to do it yourself.
