While most of us continue to crave more space at home, Wall Street Journal shares how Studio Shed’s detached structures provide a solution to home expansion needs.
“These sheds aren’t prefabricated buildings, delivered from home improvement stores and rigged with lighting, but are customized structures that boast air conditioning, wallpaper, chandeliers, decking, and more. They come with hefty price tags, but also with fewer headaches than renovations. Flexibility and short construction timelines, some builders say, make these structures desirable to homeowners who want more space without committing to a full construction project.
Shed companies say demand is rising. Mike Koenig, president and co-founder of Studio Shed, in Louisville, Colo., said his company more than doubled the number of sheds they sold in each month of August through October 2020 compared with sales in those months last year. kitHAUS, a Los Angeles-based company, has seen a 30% to 40% increase in sales since the pandemic began, said co-founder Tom Sandonato. The kitHAUS sheds cost anywhere from $30,000 to $150,000,” writes Wall Street Journal contributor Hannah Selinger.
