With the Shed Configurator it’s all very transparent. You see what you’re choosing. With photos and costs for each option you can build and visualize the space of your dreams.
Boulder, Colorado (PRWEB) May 23, 2012
Homeowners considering one of today’s designer backyard sheds can avail themselves of an online build and price tool similar to those offered by car manufacturers such as Audi or high end bike builders like Trek. The Shed Configurator TM is now live, allowing users to mix and match components to create the home office, extra bedroom, studio or personal space of their dreams.
The uncertain economy has fueled a frenzy of interest in backyard sheds. Pre-built with in-wall wiring and offering many options, these environmentally friendly, modern structures can be put up for substantially less than traditionally constructed home add-ons, can go from delivery to occupancy in just days, and in many communities even building permits aren’t necessary.
“It’s extra personal space without the hassle. But just because it’s easy and cost-effective, doesn’t mean there aren’t attractive options,” said Mike Koenig, managing partner/ceo of Studio Shed in Boulder, CO, a leading producer of high-design, high-efficiency prefabricated backyard sheds. “What people do with the shed is up to them, and people can be very creative. One client uses hers as a rooftop hideaway on an urban high-rise. Another, a banjo teacher, built his as a studio where he teaches via Skype to students all around the world.”
Prices for base models start at $7,200 with an unfinished interior, and $10,750 with a finished interior. Shipping starts at around $945. And installation by a regional certified Studio Shed installation team starts at $950. The sheds can be ordered as DIY shed kits, though the majority of customers choose to have the company install the shed for them.
“Our goal is to make this easy and allow people to choose styles and options with confidence,” said Jeremy Horgan-Kobelski, chief creative officer of Studio Shed, who oversaw the configurator development. “With the Shed Configurator it’s all very transparent. You see what you’re choosing. With photos and costs for each option you can build and visualize the space of your dreams.”
Koenig and Horgan-Kobelski founded the shed design/build firm in 2008. Today, they have customers nationwide. Shed options now include everything from styles of exterior sidings, to where on the walls the windows are positioned, to what color the interior walls are painted and more.
The new Shed Configurator is usable by both the casually curious and the committed shed shopper. In those areas where permits are required, the company will handle that too. All that’s necessary is to choose ‘Permit Services’. The checkbox is an option on Studio-shed.com’s Shed Configurator.
