Most people buy portable buildings or storage sheds to keep their tools, equipment, and other belongings safe and organized. However, these useful, multi-purpose buildings can serve many other purposes too. Explore these seven creative uses for Amish sheds or portable garages in your backyard and experience the benefits of having a quality made structure near your home.
1 – Man Cave or She Shed
Do you need your own space to relax? Maybe a man cave or she shed is the answer. This is a great solution if you do not have enough room in your home for another room, or if you just want some privacy. You can use these spaces for many different purposes. You can use it as a place to watch TV, play video games, read a book, or just relax. You can also use it as a place to work on projects or store tools, craft supplies, and equipment. Portable buildings make great man caves or she sheds because they are easy to set up and affordable.
2 – Workshop or Craft Studio
Crafts and hobbies take up a lot of room, so a garden shed or other portable building is the perfect solution. Stop your supplies, tools, and equipment from taking over the living room or other common areas in the house. Whether you want to build the ultimate model railroad, paint ceramics, so stuffed animals, or do metalworking, these small spaces offer a lot of benefits.
3 – Playhouse for the Kids
Give your kids a fun, safe, and comfortable place to play with a small portable building in the backyard. They can use their imagination to turn it into a cabin in the woods, fantasy castle, or a rocket ship to the stars. Even older kids and teens would love a private gathering spot with comfy couches and a mini fridge so they can hang out with their friends on the weekends.
4 – Shelter for Pets and Other Animals
If your pets spend a lot of time outdoors, a small portable shelter can provide protection from the weather and a comfortable place to relax when not prowling to the grass and gardens. With some modifications, shed also makes a great chicken coop, rabbit hutch, or even a small barn for animals like goats or pigs.
5 – Extra Living Space or Guest House
Multi-generational households grow more popular as living expenses increase. Whether you need a mother-in-law suite separate from the house or want to create a temporary guesthouse on your property, a properly insulated and wired shed or cabin is a great option.
6 – Studio or Practice Space
Is your family tired of listening to trumpet practice or jamming with your cover band? Perhaps you want to hold church choir practice at home or have plans to become YouTube’s next star. A portable building with proper soundproofing and insulation offers the perfect spot for practice for a concert or recording of your next solo hit or album.
7 – Home Office or Small Business Spot
A portable building in the backyard makes an excellent home office or meeting place for any type of small company. Call in an electrician to get it wired for lights, computers, and coffee pot, and you are ready to get down to business.
