When a Doylestown, PA entrepreneur thought of moving her home-based business out of the basement of her home, she decided to buy one of those Amish storage sheds in PA and transform it into a backyard studio workshop. Her dreams became reality after visiting Sheds Unlimited in Lancaster County, PA and placing an order on one of their custom built storage sheds built at the Gap, PA facility.

The idea began after Mary Jane looked one of those Amish storage sheds in her backyard she had an epiphany. Why not turn a storage shed into a backyard studio workshop? “Mary Jane simply wanted a bright and inspired place to create”, writes Jane Dagmi. “The talented seamstress, who fabricates one-of-a-kind pillows, lampshades, and other soft goods from mostly antique European textiles, was tired of working in a dark, cold basement. She looked into renting a space in town, but the cost was prohibitive. She entertained building an addition onto her home, but decided against the cost.”

Before long, she visited Sheds Unlimited INC in rural Lancaster County, PA where she purchased a 12’x30’ Classic Storage Shed. The outdoor storage shed was custom fitted with a large window to allow plenty of light into the building as well as double glass doors to make the Amish storage shed not only a backyard studio workshop, but also a pleasant backyard retreat for the self-employed entrepreneur. Now Mary Jane could leave the darkness of her basement and enjoy working in the bright environment of the backyard workshop which also now serves as a backyard office for her small business.

After the storage shed from Pennsylvania was delivered, Mary Jane hired local contractors to install the insulation, electrical and the flooring on the backyard studio. Within a few weeks the storage shed from Sheds Unlimited was completed on the inside. The cheap storage shed had now become a very comfortable backyard shed retreat where she could develop her business. Walking into the transformed Amish storage shed one could feel comfortable using this cheap storage shed as a backyard getaway, a prefab shed office for the backyard or a backyard guest house. The comfortable feel of this backyard shed seems worth more than minimal cost Mary Jane spent to prepare the backyard studio retreat. When the studio workshop was completed, Mary Jane reports that she spent a mere $10,000.00 including the electrical hookup. She is very grateful to Sheds Unlimited for working with her to produce a storage shed that would meet her needs.
