If you’d like a quiet place to work from home, covert your shed into a home office! Portable buildings also serve as great studios and hobby centers. While you could use the shed just as it comes, some people prefer to go above and beyond, creating a truly ideal work space for their needs.

It’s important to note that this should only be done if you own your shed. Though our rent-to-own program is a great offer, you'll need to wait until it is fully paid off before making any permanent changes. One of the benefits of the rent-to-own option is that you can actually get a feel for if this shed is the right size for your DIY home office or not. If you find it's too small you can always trade up to a larger size without losing your investment.

Handyman Flooring

Moisture is possibly the biggest enemy of your shed’s floor system. Think of all those spring rain showers, the early morning dew, the summer humidity and melting winter snow. It’s clear that moisture is difficult to avoid, but prolonged exposure could be detrimental to your shed’s durability.

Some shed buyers quickly discover their shed's flooring may not be as durable as they thought when they made the purchase. They ask "Why is my shed floor rotting?!" The simple answer is that their shed wasn't built to withstand the moisture that is unavoidable in any backyard.

This is why it's essential to know how your shed floor is constructed. Your belongings are valuable and need a secure, durable floor that will protect your things.
