If in a pinch for extra living space at home, a detached structure could be just the solution. Especially if an addition isn’t an option, there are companies all over the country that provide prefabricated structures that can be used for a home office, studio, in-law suite, or cabana, etc. North Carolina-based Outdoor Environs is one of these companies with a backyard shed from about $40,000.
A 251-square-foot Outdoor Environs is delivered in four to six weeks, though pricing doesn’t include things like foundation, delivery, assembly costs, etc.
The prefab shed by Outdoor Environs is built with Marvin Integrity windows and doors, a galvanized metal roof, the Open-Built Wall System by Bensonwood with dense-pack cellulose (R22), roof panels by Bensonwood with dense-pack cellulose (R32), and HardiePanel siding, etc.
