Bachyard Home Offices On The Rise

Bachyard Home Offices On The Rise

As more people have started working from home this year, families are looking for solutions that provide private office space. 

Some homeowners have opted to remodel an existing area into an office, build an addition onto their home or move to a larger house. When the timing isn't right for one of these choices, then another option is adding a freestanding office in the backyard. 

While the concept of the "She Shed" has been around for a while, modern home office sheds take it to the next level of ingenuity. Homeowners wanting to add a backyard office could work with an architect and builder to create a fully customized building design. Alternatively, companies such as Studio Shed, Kanga Room Systems and Modern Shed offer prefabricated kits that arrive in pieces to be assembled and then personalized. 

According to, one California couple was able to order, install and customize a 100 sqft office from Studio Shed in a little over four weeks for about $31,000 (including cost to run electricity to the building). The smallest 80 sqft model offered by Kanga Room Systems starts at around $7,200 to DIY install, and increases in price based on choices of finishes and additional features. 

Homeowners who foresee extended periods of remote working because of the pandemic or simply to cut down on commute time may want to investigate the cost of creating their own backyard office. The additional of usable space to the property could also add value to the home and make the investment even more worthwhile.
