In case you were wondering...

This blog exists to encourage all those who have ever wanted--and needed!--a tiny getaway close to home. A workshop, playhouse, garden shed, sanctuary, mini-greenhouse, studio, home office; whatever it is you need, it IS doable, with some sacrifice, imagination, and compromise.

It helps if you're handy, too.

Prefab Sheds...

I'm VERY glad we've got what we have...I love my handmade shed and find that it works better all the time.  We spend a lot of time out there; working there is a pleasure.

And as longtime readers of this blog know, I started it to encourage others who need a similar place--for work, peace, studio, meditation, workshop, yoga, writing, whatever--to GO for it.  I haven't regretted it for a moment.

These garden sheds at Home Depot reminded me of one of the possibilities we considered, a prefab.  You could customize and finish it however you wanted to, and have it delivered to your site.  (And of course the links in the sidebar contain quite a few options of this type...) These range between a bit over $2000 to over $4000, but there are a lot of options out there, both higher and lower.  We pass a garden-shed place every time we go over to Independence to hit the big Costco. Even our local lumberyard offers a few models...


  1. You make it look so easy. Next time you're in the Ozarks, why don't you do a little water color of my cabin. Okay?

  2. If you are living in the USA and looking for prefab sheds to use as a studio or a place of meditation, you might want to check out Sheds Unlimited Inc. They offer a wide range of prefab wooden sheds and car garages that could be finished out for a portable studio or backyard workshop. They offer a line of simple wooden sheds, classic backyard sheds, vinyl storage sheds and the most exciting, the Luxury Garden Sheds. All of them can be customized to meet the need one might have. They even got the attention of Bob Villa when they delivered a backyard studio shed which is being used as a backyard sewing room.

    1. Thanks, Chris! I'll check them out and add them to our links at right.
