Backyard Office Shed? - 3 Steps to Your Own

Updated: Sep 28, 2023

A recent study by Bank of America shows that more and more millennials are moving into the suburbs. The study found that they “are almost three times more likely to move into a house than an apartment”.

What does this mean for the cities? How will people commute to and from their workplace? Does this mean more people will work from home?

Why you need a backyard office shed

At Urban Sheds, we’ve found that people idealize the “work from home” mentality but don’t always have the space to actually do it. Some work from their kitchen tables. Others use a small room that is soon to be a baby room. Sometimes they find themselves in a corner of their basement where they get no sunlight.

Most of these scenarios are frustrating and involve significant challenges in focus and efficiency. Throughout covid, we saw the trend of working from home skyrocket. Some people were forced to work from home even if they didn’t have a reasonable space to do so. In response, we’ve pivoted to serving these people by offering an affordable backyard office shed.

Consider a backyard office a long-term investment in your property. With the trend of people working more from home, when you sell, it will bring added value to your property. And until you sell, you now have that much-needed space to focus on your work during the day. Also, you will benefit from the division of work and home life while still working from your own property.
