Our client wanted a ‘she shed’ built on their property that resembled the exterior of their house. We previously completed a mid-century modern makeover of the exterior of their home and remodeled their front foyer.
- Built a storage shed for gardening supplies and other equipment that complemented the unique design of the house.
- Included a workbench area so the homeowner can do potting and other types of gardening activities.
- Shed needed power for lighting and electrical outlets, but we didn’t want the shed to be “hard-wired” to the house power because it would be expensive, the driveway would need to be torn up, and it required a permit for the work. The shed was designed to be “plugged in” by running an extension cord from the garage to the shed. Once plugged in, the lights and outlets inside the shed are fully operational.
- Because the existing house exterior is stucco, we needed a cost-effective material for the shed’s exterior that mimicked the look of stucco. We found a “cement panel” product that looked like stucco, but could be cut and nailed to the shed framing.
- Painted exterior to match the house.
- The shed is actually a free-standing structure that can be moved with a forklift if needed.
