Having your own personal space to retreat to when things get overwhelming is like having a tiny piece of heaven on earth. Storage sheds can easily be converted to your own alone space right in your backyard. You can turn them into anything from a relaxing place to take an uninterrupted nap to the tiny movie theater you always dreamed of.


If you like to perform your own handy projects for and around the house a workshop to house all of your tools and space to finish projects is a popular way to make good use of a backyard shed.

Recording Studio or Practice Room

Since so many people have found themselves with extra time on their hands lately, many have taken up new hobbies, one of them being learning to play or relearning to play an instrument or creating music. Practicing music can be loud and disruptive to other people in the home. Converting a shed into a music room helps to alleviate some of this noise. Sound proofing measures help to further alleviate creating too much noise for others.

Custom Playhouse

With less and less people going to the park, more people are finding creative ways for their children to fall in love with the backyard again. Some are turning the backyard shed into a custom playhouse that has their kid(s) outside most of the day and away from a screen.

Gym/Workout/Fitness Room

When gyms closed down people who utilized them on a regular basis were left finding other ways to get in a good workout. Some people turned to turn their backyard shed into their own personal gym.

Home Office

With the influx of having to work from home for many companies, some telecommuters found it very hard to continue to be productive without the privacy of their own office. This led a very large number of homeowners to get creative with their backyard shed and turn it into a home office when there was no space for one inside the home.

Pool House

Having a pool in the backyard became a very wanted and hot commodity when public pools closed up last summer. Now homeowners are taking their pools to the next level with a shed converted into a lush pool house.
