We went to the Home+Design show last weekend and happened upon this great concept - A Modern Shed. A detached space in your backyard for an office, yoga studio, guest room etc. Forget about the typical backyard shed that holds lawn mowers, cans of paint and smells of old grass clippings and gasoline. These sheds are truly beautiful spaces and could really add a special something to your home and lifestyle. Did you know that in most cases you don't require a Building Permit for structures under a 100 sf ft. These structures are insulated, have heat, power, and there are many material options to choose from to build your dreamy space. This concept really resonated with us because we both work from home, and can find it tremendously challenging working with a toddler at our feet, and the typical noises humming in the house.
