Crumbling sheds don’t automatically equate to trash. There’s a reason one man’s trash is another man’s treasure! Upgrading your shed can turn it into something beautiful, like a shed, guesthouse, art studio, or office. The options are endless, and with some elbow grease, you can completely renovate your shed and build it into something you’re proud of. Depending on your budget, you could spend anywhere from $1,000 to $60,000 to convert your dilapidated shed into a home that’s livable and beautiful. At the end of the day, it depends on how much money you want to dump into your project, and how much time you have on your hands.
There’s more reason than one to convert your crumbling shed into a home. According to The Tiny House, by starting with a shed, “You’ll be able to order and collect your tiny house shed in a matter of minutes compared to the months it’d take you to build something from scratch. You also won’t lose any time to newbie mistakes that would have to be undone and redone. As we’ve seen, if you’re short on time, money, or skills, a storage shed converted to a tiny house could be a really smart move.” If you have a shed in your backyard, maybe it’s time to reconstruct it!
Minimalist Shed Lifestyle
Young couple Katy and Michael Zientek embraced the minimalist lifestyle by renovating their crumbling shed. They took their 280-square-foot shed, which dates back to the 1980s, and put some money into it. Because they needed a place to live, they decided to renovate this shed. With a budget of $16,000, they transformed this shed over nine months. If you thought it was game over for your forty-year-old shed, think again (YouTube).
