These prefab office sheds are the best way to go about working from home if you want a separate workspace from your living area. Read on!
A prefab office shed is an ADU that you can put in your backyard and usually without a permit (check your local building codes.) It’s a spin on the traditional shed.
Instead of a workshop or a storage shed, you get a small office in your backyard. A prefab construction means you can order it and get it delivered.
Depending on the type of unit, you can buy a kit or a turnkey solution. The cost varies accordingly (from $6,000 to $30,000+.)
For a cheaper ADU, you’re not getting plumbing (no bathroom or kitchen) but you get a studio that can function as a perfect work room. High-end units may include these features.
