Studio Shed founders Mike Koenig and Jeremy Horgan-Kobelski had a common problem: too many things, too little space. As mountain bikers, they needed extra room for their bikes and equipment. Frustrated by the options on the market, they combined brainpower (Koenig has a degree in business, Horgan-Kobelski in engineering) to create Studio Shed.

This shed is used as an art studio (twelve by 24 feet) in Boulder, CO. The resident opted for custom lighting and a stained plywood floor.

Their goal was to create an easy method to add storage or a room to a pre-existing home, in an affordable, sustainable way. Since then, their zero-waste sheds have gained popularity as offices, storage spaces, and recording studios.

Each shed is customizable via a recently launched interactive online tool and range from $120-150 per square foot. With more people working from home, backyard offices offer a physical barrier between life and work, this one in Walnut Creek, California, has a FullLite glass front elevation.

When homeowners of an off-the-grid property in the Bay Area needed to add a home office, they added a custom deck to their Studio Shed to take advantage of the landscape.

For musicians, the shed can function as a practice space, for a seamless look, the owners matched the paneling to their home.

Insulated with denim and highly sealed, the sheds can also double as an outdoor room, like this outdoor living room in Palo Alto, California.
