Prefab studio construction continues to be an alluring option to set up a modern, stylish backyard room. The garden office sheds come in different designs, such as the American Craftsmanship style that accentuates your home. Prefab studio kits allow for customization of the standing office spaces that are flat paneled and shipped to the site. Certified installation teams then erect the stylish structure on the homeowner’s property. Here are some factors to consider when selecting a backyard studio.

1. Determine the Use of the Prefab Studio

Quaint studio kits can be customized to fit your needs for your space. The designers can work out a backyard office space, a guest room, an art studio, or a hidey-hole for your children to play. The studio can also be a yoga room, a workshop, an extra storage space, or just a family hideout to relax and enjoy your landscape. What you plan to do with the studio affects the size and design of the prefab unit.

2. Consider Your Home’s Style


Does your home have a distinctive style such as American Craftsman style or Rustic Victorian? When going through the different designs available, you may decide to match the construction design with your main house. You can match the paint colors, siding, and shingles.

With the American Craftsman style, you can opt for low-pitched roof lines, with simplistic interiors for your backyard studio. You may also decide to completely contrast the space with a contemporary modular office standing out from the Victorian theme.

3. Customization


Custom add-ons allow you to increase the functionality and accentuate your space. The purpose of the prefab studio unit determines the accessories and appliances to add to the room. Additions such as shelves, hooks, and cabinets help keep your backyard office organized and tidy. You can add a personalized style by positioning your shed doors and windows to your preference. American Craftsman style utilizes pine or cypress wooden panels that allow for easier customization of your space.

4. Building Codes


Before ordering your quaint studio online, check if you will need building permits to set up. Different Councils and states have various regulations depending on the size and options included in your modular office.

Most states will allow erecting a one 120 square foot structure without needing a building license. Make sure you have gone through your local building codes before ordering. Most contractors can assist in having your larger project approved by offering full architectural plans and engineer stamped drawings. Unpermitted projects are cheaper and have a shorter turnaround time.

5. Materials and Budget


The material used to construct your studio should weather the severest of climates and handle whatever Mother Nature throws at it. High-quality craftsmanship using durable materials such as aluminum, wood, and fiberglass ensures your cube will withstand the test of time. You should also ensure that the materials chosen fit your budget limits with wooden panels being more expensive. Knowing the flexibility of your budget allocation allows you to choose the right size, design, and materials for your backyard studio.

In Conclusion

Pre-fabricated backyard studios offer attractive options to maximize space within your home. Choosing through the different designs, such as the American Craftsman style, allows you to customize the room to your liking.
