Global Shedquarters Is Calling

Posted by David McManus

Feb 8, 2017 1:00:00 PM

Working from home is a common occurance nowdays. After all, there is something appealing about the potential of never having to get out of your pajamas to go to work. But, there is a trend that has people rising out of bed, getting dressed and rushing to their backyards to tackle their daily work load. Yes, their backyards. 

Global shedquarters, corporate shedquarters, world shedquarters...call it whatever you like. Whether you need an office, an art studio, a think tank or a writing area, modified sheds to function as an office are quickly becoming all the rage. 

Private and space-efficient these shedquarters can be cozy, stylish, modern, homely or just about anything you want them to be. Anyone who works from home knows there are countless distractions and/or opportunities to do other things- dishes, laundry, some tv, maybe some Xbox. Though it might extend your commute by a minute or so, having a workspace with little distractions and interuptions is certainly something your boss would not disagree with. 

Office sheds can be repurposed from an existing structure or designed from the ground up. Backyard structures or sheds are a cost effective way of adding additional space to your home without going through a complete remodel. By turning these structures into unique extensions of their own property, homeowners are turning sheds into their office or workplace of their dreams. Not only can a shedquarters be an innovative addition to your home but can be a place to retreat from the madness of your household if need be.

Are you ready to redefine your backyard oasis?

In the hustle and bustle of everyday life, it’s important to set aside some time for ourselves — and it’s essential to do so in an environment or space that fits your personal style.

For a man and a woman, that space is a lot different.

By now you've probably heard the term "man cave". It's that not-so-secret but off-limit place where men can escape reality for a few hours and enjoy some manliness time with friends or alone. While traditionally this "den of iniquity" was in the basement, an extra room of the house or the garage, this man sanctuary is now moving to the back yard in the form of a "he-shed".
