When a local artist called Historic Shed for her new art studio, she knew exactly what she wanted. She'd been saving our ad from a magazine for several years and had sketched up all her ideas in her notebook. We built her a 12' x 12' shed with paired French doors on three sides. A 4' roof extension on the front is supported by large brackets, providing shelter for her doors and a seating area. The shed has a metal roof and cypress siding.
The owner says she opens the doors on all three sides to get a nice breeze and lots of light.
The owner installed shelves along the back wall (the only one with no doors or windows). A mini-split AC system is located at the peak of the wall, allowing lots of storage below. A sink was installed at the right end of the counter after these photos were taken.
The interior was finished with drywall but the roof framing and sheathing were left exposed.
The three pairs of French doors allow ample light in the room.
The lovely landscaping provides a nice view from inside the shed.
A set of wheels make a mobile surface from her work table.
A flash back to construction below: the exterior shell took 3 days to put up. After the electrical and AC unit was installed, Historic Shed finished out the shed interior with drywall and cypress trim. The roof framing and sheathing was left exposed for and open look.

The owner had etched the slab entry porch as it was setting up to create a really special detail.

We had a crowd excited to see the shed go up.

Isn't it cute?
