Crossover sheds - Thinking Outside

When we've talked about crossover sheds before, it's usually towards the shed-home end of the scale. Detroit-based Thinking Outside have an interesting structure called The Smart Gardener's Workshop more towards the potting shed end which, in the right conditions, would also be a great place to shedwork. It measures 11ft by 10ft by 12ft, has double-wide dutch doors at both ends, two built-in skylights and, naturally, garden hose access. You have to build it yourself though it comes with full instructions. More details here.

    Hello,

    I am about to get one of these via Craigslist. The company that made them is apparently no longer in business. Do you know where I could find more information or find someone else that has one?

    Sincerely,
    Jen

  2. Jen,

    I loved our SmartShed until one of the skylights broke (less than 4 years after purchasing it) now I am stuck with it and cannot find anywhere to replace the skylight. I would advise not purchasing it.

  3. AJ,

    I use to know someone that sold Acrylic. He would make things out of it. If you know someone like that, maybe they could do the same.

    An Acylic saleperon - that's the ticket !

  5. I pay someone around $2000 for one in good shape, after it was delivered of course.

    I'll have to get something else built or find another prefab.

    But like I said, I'd give $2,000 for the Thinking Outside Smart Gardeners Workshop.

    I, too, lucked out and purchased one of these sheds from a local nursery going out of business. Only paid $300. But desperately need the manual for sure. If ANYONE has one, please email to wired@mris.com
