Backyard Studio Sheds California
Welcome to our selection of shed kits. We're well known for providing backyard studio sheds that California, and the rest of the nation, trusts. We zeroed in on the need for dependable backyard accessory structures, realizing that for many people, the backyard building could make the perfect spot to carry out their business or artistic hobbies. We hope you'll find a floor plan that will offer you a similar level of utility from among our offerings, but first, some background information.
What do we mean when we're talking about backyard studio sheds? These are add-on structures that you can build on your existing property to provide some extra room for the tasks you see fit. They aren't completely independent units (those would be tiny homes), but they offer more than enough flexibility to suit any number of purposes. Unlike standard backyard cottage offerings, which might have a more "residential" feel to them, studio sheds are more purpose-driven and lend themselves towards customization by creative individuals. Our studio work shed kits are clearly interpreted as such, leaving no confusion about their purpose (which can play a factor in some local/state rules).
Why would you want to build a separate structure on your property? For starters, it's less expensive than tearing down walls in your home and trying to do an extension. There's no need to hire architects and engineers to graft a new piece onto your home, hoping that it will match up with the existing structure. You might not even need to hire any contractors to build it either, depending on how much time and construction skill you possess. Furthermore, the value of your property stands to increase with all of the utility you're adding in the form of your backyard building.
What makes our shed kits worth it? As we mentioned earlier, our structures are small and can fit on your existing property. Our plans come ready-to-construct as external storage, work, or hobby rooms. Moreover, we have options to choose from, and none of them are set in stone. If you see one that you like, but feel that, in the course of construction, there might be something you can do to fine tune the structure to a different purpose, you are free to do so. If, before you even order a plan from us, need to have something custom, you can let us know, and we'll do what we can to provide it for you. This is a great option if you're not sure about how to draw up a custom site plan yourself and there's a dearth of local draftsmen who might otherwise be able to assist.
How does the process work? First, you'll need to ask yourself a few questions. Do you have a large enough lot to fit an extra building, for instance? We have different sized kits to fit different areas, but it's always best to measure and be certain. You'll need to know if your locale allows for you to build an accessory structure and what rules govern its construction. In some places, you can only build if the unit is not intended for sleeping. Other places require buildings to adhere to specific codes regarding energy efficiency and environmental resistances. Make sure you go over our detailed Site Questionnaire to properly assess everything that you need to.
Once you are confident you can move ahead with the project, you can pick one of our plans and place your order. Our designs are heavily inspired by the American Victorian Period, and you can likely find one to fit your preferred tastes. Upon order, you can decide whether you need a building plan set, material price estimates/purchase orders, or engineering documentation. The specifics will depend on your location, so again, make sure you do your research and learn about what you will require before progressing. From there, you can download and print what you need, then get started. If you have that do-it-yourself spirit, you're free to tackle the building project yourself. If you're strapped for time or lacking in construction skills, you can always hire a reputable contractor to handle the work for you.
Remember that we are dedicated to client success. If you have any questions about any step in the process, feel free to reach out to us to learn more. From interpreting your building plans, to learning about where to find the right materials, to hiring the right men for the construction job, we have more than a few helpful tips to guide you along the way.
If you're looking for something with a sleeping area that you can use as a guest unit, you might try looking at our backyard cottages. If you want a more independent unit with a full array of home features, be sure to check out our tiny homes. Our offerings run the gamut, so you'll not want for choice!
