Really attractive outbuildings
How did you come up with the idea for this product?
After working on a large historic preservation project in Tampa, we were asked about accessory storage buildings to complement the renovated homes since off-the-shelf sheds were not allowed in the neighborhood. When we realized the steps a typical historic homeowner would have to go through for a custom shed or garage (hire a designer, submit to architectural review, hire a contractor, and then be aggravated while construction takes weeks), a light bulb went off and we realized that there was a niche market that we were perfectly suited to serve.
