With plenty of innovative caravan sheds and shelters designs out there, the possibilities are endless. Let’s take a look at some of the unique ways you can use your backyard shed for much more than just storage for yard tools and accessories.




Garden Shed

If you love to garden and landscape, you will want to have a place to work with all of your tools at hand. Organize your shed with space-saving features so that your tools are always within reach and your supplies are neatly organized. You can set up a workbench that will provide you with the perfect place to work.

Get your spring seedlings started early and keep them protected inside your garden shed until they are ready to plant. Use your shed to store all of your garden accessories, hand tools, bags of soil and fertilizer, and seasonal planters. You will love having your own dedicated space to work in while you cultivate your perfect garden.


Set up your shed to be the perfect spot to work on all of your DIY projects. Gather all of your supplies and tools into one spot where you can focus on your work and designs. For the casual handyman or the more serious craftsman, having a place to focus on your handiwork is a real treat. Keep the mess and the noise out of your house and give yourself your own private workshop where you can focus on creating new work.

Home Office

More and more people are choosing to start their own small businesses or to work remotely than ever before. With the advent of the internet, working with the assistance of your computer has allowed many people to spend more time at home rather than commuting to an office. Set up your own small home office in your current outdoor shed. With proper electrical support, lighting and a dependable and organized workspace, you will have everything that you need to get your work done in the quiet and peace of the outdoors.


Why spend money month after month paying for an expensive private gym membership when you can enjoy a workout right at home? Move your treadmill or elliptical machine out to the shed and set up a private gym space right in your own yard. Turn on your favorite music, get out the yoga mats and start getting in shape with the privacy of your own home gym.
