If you thought you’d seen it all when you read about lady lairs you were wrong. The introduction of the “shedquarters”, perhaps cousin to the she shed, has shaken up the real estate trend market yet again. Innovation has certainly made its way to the heart of real estate, whether you love it or hate it you can’t turn away. Don’t worry, it’s not just you.
Backyards and businesses are next up in innovative settings with the introduction of the shedquarters. The call to be increasingly space-efficient has driven the return of several creative solutions. No longer just a wooden box in your backyard for tools and a lawn mower, now your shed can have a daily purpose.
Saving space and money by investing in these pint-sized structures is simultaneously freeing their owners of travel time and rental spaces . The options for the shedquarters are basically unlimited, even though your space might be. Depending on your needs and desires these big ideas in small packaging can be customized for an office, craft studio, guest cottage, or dream pub-shed.
Companies such as Kanga, based out of Austin, Texas and Modern Shed in Seattle, Washington have made these innovations more accessible through pre-fab structures and kits suited to individual client’s needs. Clients have been able to add their own saunas, fitness studios, and meditation rooms that wouldn’t have been feasible otherwise.
These convenient additions to a backyard or property starting below $10,000, allowing you to add a dream space without draining your savings or living in ongoing home construction. You can keep focused on your work and experience solitude all feet from your home, and without sitting in traffic.
A shedquarters can save you tax dollars and more than you think in monthly expenses. Owners of these custom playhouses for adults boast about saving thousands in office rent and hundreds in gas annually due to their new Modern Shed office digs. Others were able to save $15-75,000 by building a shedquarter style home office instead of opting for a new home addition or covered porch conversion. The added benefit of being home when raising children is also incalculable for some home office converts to the shedquarter space.
As the real estate landscape evolves new ideas spark even more innovation. There is no telling what purposes will shift throughout the living and working spaces.
