What is a Modern Shed Plan?
Whether you call it a Modern Shed, Studio Shed or Office Shed one thing is certain, these sheds are designed to provide a place you can let your creative juices flow in a simple atmosphere that is away from the regular commotion of your house. Our studio sheds are designed to be used as a office or workspace. The difference between modern and regular storage sheds is mostly the design of the roof and the addition of windows to add light. The low sloping roof line and abundant use of windows gives the modern shed distinctly contemporary design characteristics. Interior and exterior finishes further enhance the finished look of your office or studio space.
The usable storage space inside is the same it is simply the look that is different. The flat roof is a little simpler to build and there are additional windows. The modern shed also is designed to use a regular residential home door. The studio shed can be built without windows.
We have many sizes and different designs of modern sheds to choose from. We know that every back yard is different so most of our studio shed sizes come with multiple door location options to suilt different needs. The design and construction of our modern shed plans will allow you to fully finish the space inside the shed. By adding electrical, insulation, drywall and floorings you can create a professional office space that you will be comfortable working. Or the shed can be left unfinished on the inside and you will have a modern looking storage space.
Save Money Make Money
Building your own modern shed is the most cost effective way to get the extra office or studio space you need. Most construction project costs are about half labor and half materials. By using our modern shed plans and building the shed yourself you will greatly reduce the cost of your new office space. Many homeowners perform the jobs that they feel comfortable with and then hire out the rest.
The long term savings of having a home office are great. You will save on your commute to work, get more work done by being out of the excitement going on inside your home and have a professional place for clients to visit you.
Great Reasons To Build A Home Office
Quiet Working Space: There are times when working from home that everyone thinks it would be nice to have a office space that is a little farther from the action. Whether it is being visibly present which makes those around you think you are available to help or simply too much noise going on outside the office door, working in the home is often a challenge. Building a modern shed and creating your office or studio space from our plans is the perfect way to get all the benefits of working at home and reduce the problems.
When you build a studio or office shed from our plans you will create a space that looks and feels professional. You will be removed from all the excitement going on inside the home and still have a commute of only a few steps from your back door. Our modern shed plans can be finished to any level you like. From first class office space to a clean and contemporary studio you can build it to fit your needs and budget.
Eliminate Your Commute: Everyone who works from home knows how much time and expense is saved by not driving to an office. Even an office that is a few miles from home requires extra time and money to travel back and forth to. If you have a long commute then the potential savings of building and finishing home office space is even greater. A office or studio that is just a few steps from your back door will change your daily life. You will have more time for the things that are important to you. You will also be able to spend more time doing those things. From time spent working to time spent with your family or personal interests you have more of it.
Saving on Office or Studio Rent: Building a home office from our modern shed plans requires a subtantial up front cost. But when you factor in the amount of money saved by not paying the rental costs associated with an office space away from the home you may have the ability to save money over the long term. There may also tax benefits associated with improvements to your home.
Keeping Your Workspace Professional: One of the primary reasons people do not want to work at home is because it is hard to work when those around you think you are "at home". Building a home office puts physical distance between you and those who may think you can do something for them because you are present. Even 20 or 30 feet out the back door will greatly improve your work ethic and keep family time and work time boundaries more clear. These boundaries will improve the atmosphere in both the home and work spaces and relationships. Those in your home will have a more clear understanding of what it means when you say you "I am going to work now" which translates into more productive work time and more peace with family members.

"Thank you Chris for the super service. The plans look great and I can't wait to get started." Frank
"I think these shed plans are great. I am very handy, but it is nice to have plans with measurements that are easy to follow. Most plans are to detailed, and confusing. I will prefab shed in garage, then in early spring put together. Thank you very much." Paul
"Hi. So I bought your plans and built the shed. Worked great, I would say 10/10...
Very easy to read the plans, very easy to make by following the steps in the "how to build a shed book" that comes with the plans. Overall, a very satisfied customer." Martin
"I just purchased your shed plans for the 6x8 Lean To Shed. The quality of the plans is top-notch... Thanks for the quick reply! The quality to price ratio of your shed plan products is incredible. Not to mention your awesome support. I will most certainly be recommending icreatables shed plans to anyone I know who is interested in having a shed! Thanks again,"

"AWESOME CUSTOMER SUPPORT…" John
"I promised to send a photo of my completed shed. My wife and I are very happy with the way it turned out. The plans were exactly what I needed to get going... It was a lot of work, but I learned a lot and it was fun. Thanks for your help." Mike
"Your plans were very helpful. It was well worth the small price I paid for the extra help. Thanks." Robert
"Hi Guys, I built this shed as a well house and it is terrific, even though I have never been anything close to a carpenter. I have arthritis so I used screws everywhere but the roof, and I believe it will be stronger for it.
"Our shed looks great, thanks to your plans." Donald
"I had already paid out twelve dollars and change to another do it yourself website and was totally unhappy with the plans I got. Luckly I found your website and paid less for somthing ten times better. Thanks." Allen
"I have received (the plans), and they look wonderful! Can't wait to get started (next week for sure!) Thank you so much!" Phil
"BTW - so far after reviewing I'm thoroughly impressed with what you've done here in the attachments. For someone like me who isn't "handy" you've made it very easy for me to tackle." Fran
"Yes I did (receive the plans) ...freakin awesome! Thanks again!!" Jessi
"I finally finished my 8x12 shed! The plans worked out great. I deviated from the plans slightly on roof edge and the door. I plan to put gutters and down spouts on it and we wanted a little more of a country barn door look. I really appreciated the templates for cutting the notches for the rafters. Detailing which nails I needed for each phase of the build was also very helpful. Thanks again," Dale
"I really like the instructions, they are much more than I expected." Randy
"Thank you for your input. I just purchased the 4x4GN-generator-shed-plans. Wow. The plans look fantastic. And the parts list is very nice! I plan to modify it with 2 or 3 side doors for extra ventilation as needed. Thanks again for your time." Vern
"I like the idea of constructing the unit from scratch, what I call stick building it piece by piece - we've seen the lightweight think plastic walled units from (a home store), ok I guess but the heavier wooden unit with permanent roofing will last longer and give better service. It was a good plan and easy to build from, I don't think the contractor had any difficulties with it." Gary
"I purchased your plans for a 12 x 12 shed w/garage door. Your plans were great and I'm very pleased with the results.
I also used your free "how to build a ramp" plans which were very helpful." Regards, Donald
"Hello! Our Shed project went swimmingly well this weekend! The only thing you’ll notice we did different was to order the doors from a lumberyard rather than building them…. Which worked out pretty well. Thanks for your help!" Maureen
"Got them. I'm very pleased with plans."
"Great shed plans, the material list helped a lot as well!"
"Thanks very much! Great service and good prices. I'll be buying more plans from you in the future!" Cheers, Darren
"Attached are photos of woodshed I built from your plans....the plans made it very easy....Thanks" Mike
"It to me a year of intermittent sweat swearing and blood, but I finished it, and I'm proud of it. Thanks for the awesome shed plans!" Jessica
"I recently helped a family member build an 8x12 shed using plans he bought from your site and found the plans and materials list to be very helpful. I'm about to start a project building my own storage building, a 12x20, and thought I'd buy plans from you as well since his went so smoothly." David
"I was sceptical about buying shed plans online but your extremely customer service and willingness to provide extra help to a "newbie" have won me over. Thank you.
Thanks again for your helpful information! Pictures to come!"
