Sarasota Artist Studio Shed

Share this page:

We have found that Florida artists love our Historic Shed outbuildings for studios. Inspired by the Sunny Artist Studio Shed, an artist in Sarasota contacted us to build a similarly styled shed for their back yard painting studio.

Studio Shed

Their gable studio shed is 12’x12′ and has a 4′ front porch extension supported by large brackets. As always, artists pick great and unique color schemes that enhance our sheds. These colors look spectacular in person!

The shed features a double set of wood 10 light French doors and double hung wood windows on each side. The angled placement of the shed in the corner of the yard makes it a focal point in the landscape.

Concrete inscription

The owners placed wooden letters in the wet concrete for a fun entrance into the shed.

Wood planks were installed over insulation to finish off the walls. The roof framing and sheathing were left exposed for a rustic look with extra height.

    What a great addition to a garden and as an artist, a wonderful workspace. I’m inspired!! One thing I think I would incorporate is a skylight to add additional light on those dreary days.

    Would it be easy to build following your plans? Do you build outside of Florida?
    I desire this type of Art Studio Shed very inspiring!

      So glad you like it! We are not able to build outside of Florida right now, nor do we offer our plans at this time. We are considering making our plans available through an online plans website, but are still in the consideration phase to find the pros and cons.
