Backyard Office or Gym?
I desperately need some space of my own in our Berkeley home. I’m thinking about putting in a backyard shed to serve as a workout space, occasional office space (I mostly work in person at the office), and a quiet space to connect with friends with some privacy. In summary - a lockable refuge where I won’t be bothered by my spouse or kids.
Does anyone have any recommendations for companies who will install such a space? I’m looking at Tuff Shed and Studio Shed, but by the time the project is done both will be well over $20k .. and that’s if I do it without permits. Adding permits increases the requirements and increases the cost to closer to $30k. As much as I desperately want some space, I’m not sure I can justify such a large expense for what is essentially a she shed.
Has anyone done this on the cheap? Any suggestions for how to keep the cost down? I’m ok with a less nice looking solution as long as I can get some privacy.
