Continuing the tradition of constructing artful accessory buildings in Florida

Home Offices/ Studios

Want to reduce operating costs, eliminate commuting time and expenses, and have a more flexible work schedule? A Historic Shed™ outbuilding can create a perfect Home Office or creative Art Studio.

Detached Home Office
Home Office Shed

There are many benefits to working from a home office or art studio including reduced operating costs, eliminating commuting time and expenses, flexible scheduling and overall convenience.  However, setting up a home office on the dining room table or in a spare bedroom can create clutter and be filled with household distractions. A Historic Shed Home Office allows you you eliminate the difficulties and distractions of working from home while enjoying all the benefits in a private setting. Our most popular design is a 10’x14′ Home Office with a pair of wood French doors and a single window on one end, starting at $7,500 for the shell with unfinished interior. Interior finishing costs depends on your choice of drywall or wood, with our traditional interior trim work. Other sizes and options can be adapted from our standard Gable Sheds and Hipped Sheds, which can be delivered with either a finished or unfinished interior.  This design can be adapted to suit your individual working needs as well as to complement the architecture of your property. Call us to discuss your shedworking needs and we can create a custom design for your home office shedworking needs.

Historic Shed Goes Two-Story

Historic Shed Goes Two-Story

Historic Shed was contacted by a couple who live in the Hyde Park historic district in Tampa to design a garage and guest room for a very unusual lot.

Archives Shed for an 1880s Property

While every historic house that we design a shed for is unique, some places have an exceptional story that sets them apart from the rest. This is true of a property settled in the 1880s Florida wilderness where we installed a 12’x14′ shed in November that will serve as archives storage. The site is listed…

The Perfect Home Office

The Perfect Home Office

We are all seeking ways to reduce costs to help weather the current economic storm. This is particularly true for those of us in business for ourselves. One of the simplest ways to reduce significant overhead costs from many small business owners is to work from home. There are ample dollar-related reasons to work from…

Shellac and Pecky Cypress Ceiling

Shellac and Pecky Cypress Ceiling

We recently completed a project for a great customer who had saved a variety of cypress boards that she wanted incorporated in her new home office shed. We used the wide cypress planks to build the desk and shelves, and installed the random width pecky cypress on the ceiling of the 12’x14′ shed. Pecky cypress…

Why a Shed is Green

Why a Shed is Green

For Earth Day I thought it would be good to extol the virtues of sheds in relation to being Green in a post (and I’m talking about more than painting it Kermit colored). A shed can add space to your home without requiring any demolition. No cutting through walls for access, ripping off a back porch or…
