Before & After: Costco Shed Redesign

A dear friend of mine (and old boss, and by ‘old’ I mean ‘previous’, although I do enjoy referring to her as ‘mom’ sometimes to push her buttons), recently renovated a store bought shed into an oasis of an office/guest room. She, her husband, and daughter live in the cutest cottage (which is also awesome btw) but they needed some extra space. Instead of adding on to their current house, which can be a lot to take on, and very costly, they decided to resolve the space issue by customizing a shed they purchased from Costco and plopping it in their backyard.

They extended the roof line and added a tin roof, which completely makes the cookie cutter shed much more interesting architecturally.

Painted the exterior and added wood slats, which were leftover from when they redid their floors in the main house.

Removed the doors/top window and replaced them with glass inset sliding doors.

They added a floor to ceiling window on the back wall along with another window above the desk, letting in loads of natural light.

I was amazed to see the progress and loved how it all turned out, bookmarking this DIY stat!
