'Shedquarters': Trend The Home-Based Business Owners Are Drooling Over

Categories: Building Methods

In light of the fact that because of the internet, many people don't "go" to work any more, it is common to have conflicted space in the home where Mom or Dad are working where the kids are playing.  The work space requires quiet to focus, while the play space requires noise for extreme joy!

Space-efficient work spaces are becoming all the rage these days. They’re great for maintaining privacy and uninterrupted workflow, and they can also be cozy and stylish as well. Here are some examples of a growing trend of miniature studios (for offices and living structures), that are small enough to fit in someone’s back yard.

We’re fond of calling them, shedquarters. Whether you need your own getaway space, an office, an art studio, or a full on extra home, there’s something for everyone out there! Check out these 20 shots of awesomeness, and the video at the end on how to build your own in just 4 hours:
