Home Office Sheds | A 2022 Buying Guide

Royal Gorge Style Office Shed

In today’s culture of hybrid work, thanks to a global pandemic, more people are working remotely than ever before. While the “work from home” idea sounds good at first glance, it also presents some real challenges. And while many people have carved out their home office space from a spare bedroom or garage, even that has its limitations. That is where the Home Office Shed comes in. Imagine a space that is all your own, without the distractions of being in your home, and is literally only a few steps away from your home. 

Can You Use A Shed For A Home Office?

Yes, you can use a shed for a home office, and in fact, with more people than ever working from home or with a hybrid work schedule, having a dedicated office “at home” without being “in your home” will definitely improve your productivity, and let’s be honest, your mental health.

We have a blog covering this topic in more detail here

Office Shed With Finished Interior

What is a Home Office Shed?

A home office shed or backyard office is simply a shed with a finished interior that provides you with a workspace to work from home without the distractions of an office inside your house. The beauty of the home office shed is that it can be customized to match your specific needs. Generally, an office shed will be on the smaller side, somewhere in the 100-200 sq.ft., we discuss this in more detail here.

What is the Ideal Size for Home Office Shed? 

An average home office shed size is a 10×16 shed. A smaller 8×10 shed is great for a desk and workspace but probably won’t leave room for much else, while a larger 12×16 or 10×20 will give you plenty of room for a desk or two, a small sofa, filing cabinets, and other storage space. 

The beauty of creating your own home office shed is that you can make it match your needs specifically, whatever size that is. However, there are several factors that you should consider before purchasing a new shed for your home office.
