There are some obvious ways to use a shed, such as a large industrial-sized structure for commercial purposes or as a smaller storage facility in a backyard for keeping tools and garden equipment. However, the fun begins in earnest when you let your creative juices flow and really consider the variety of options for using a shed.
Here at Shed Boss, we offer you the freedom to develop custom designed sheds, meaning that you can use the building for whatever purpose and function that best suits your needs. So, why not seek inspiration from these options and brainstorm your own ideas for using such a space on your property?
According to the Gensler Design Forecast 2015 report, people are increasingly looking for flexible workspaces and desiring to work remotely from their own home, instead of commuting to offices in busy city centres.
A simple solution to help create a space in your home that allows you to be productive and actually get all your tasks completed – rather than getting distracted by the television – is to stay on-site, but outdoors. Construct a home office for yourself in the form of a residential shed.
These lifestyle buildings can be made very comfortable and liveable thanks to our homely optional extras such as glass sliding doors, internal walls for hanging your framed diploma and credentials, and windows to catch a glimpse of the lovely green outdoors whilst you take a breather from your job.
Many artists have to pay expensive rent prices for using a studio space, especially those who work with large canvasses or create big sculptures. A simple solution is to build a shed to function as a studio.
Because Shed Boss allows so much flexibility with the design, artists can opt for tall roofs to store their works, or internal walls for exhibiting the work-in-progress to examine any areas that need to be edited.
Moreover, since plentiful natural light is so important when creating masterpieces, artists can install skylights in their shed to flood the studio with sunlight and also save on electricity bills.
Weekender home storage
According to TNS Australia's 2013 Domesticate report, which analyses why Australians choose to travel around the country, many Aussie families are seeking to get away from the stress of everyday life and 'go back to the basics' of disconnecting from technology. They just want to have some quality family time on the beach or in the bush.
An age-old tradition for doing this is taking a road trip to the family weekender home, grabbing the surfboards and hitting the waves. But the problem is, there is often limited storage in these weekender homes.
This is where Shed Boss can help, enabling families to have a safe, secure storage area for all the boogie boards, jet-skis, wake skates, inflatable kayaks and other watersports equipment that would clutter up regular cupboards and wardrobes. If you have a boat, you could also add a front or rear garaport to the shed to offer protective parking for it.
Private wine cellar
Every wine aficionado wishes they had a cellar for storing their beauties and displaying them in beautiful, labelled racks. Add a cooling system for the particularly hot regions, and you're good to go.
Sharing some vintage vino with friends and family is one of the most enjoyable experiences in life, so why not offer your bottles a lovely home in a custom designed shed built as a wine cellar? Your personal vineyard is only a cork-screw away!
