Shedworking in Texas

"With a growing family, I was in need of a home office with fewer distractions," writes graphic designer Bill Bridgeforth. "We considered renovating our attic (very expensive) or adding on to the house (still too accessible to kids). Somehow I came across the Shedworking blog and became fascinated with the idea of it. I checked out Modern Shed and Studio Shed and still thought it was too much to invest for a small graphic design business. So I started designing my own and worked with a contractor to construct it.

"I wanted it to be a place where I would be happy working most every day. Here in Allen, Texas, that meant insulation and a window air conditioner that we built right into the wall. I also wanted the trim and small details to look nice so that I would feel professional meeting with a client there. We even poured a small concrete walkway to connect with the patio and make it feel like an extension of the house. I couldn't be happier with how it turned out. It's an easy place for me to lose track of time and really focus on my work." ----------------------------------------------------------------------------

  1. This is cool. Am sending to my architect son. Would be interested to know what, if any city code approval was needed and ball park costs. Thanks for posting.
