They wired their shed for custom workstations, wireless Internet, a flat-panel TV and surround sound, plus added a dog door. They paid $25,000, or about half what an office addition would have cost.

A nice piece in the LA Times by Emily Young - Oh, get a room: the beauty of mimi prefab buildings - takes a general look at shedworkingesque buildings including these his and hers hangout sheds for the children of Bonnie and Michael Kelly. Namechecks for some of the bestknow garden office suppliers including Modern Cabana, KitHaus (who provided the Kellys with their sheds, pictured above), and Modern-Shed. The piece also looks at film producer Warren Ostergard and his wife Kate who bought a 12 x 16ft kit building from Modern-Shed.
