The shed holds a lot of imagination and potential as a tiny, backyard home. If people like Moksha Osgood and this 32-year-old woman from the UK can do it, other people who want to save money and live in a small space may be able to as well.
Mod-Shed builds contemporary shed and tiny house kits in Georgia.
Living part or even full time out of a shed doesn’t have to feel like living out of a chicken coop. There are sheds available that are pretty darn nice, let in lots of light, and look like miniature homes. Some of them can also accommodate plumbing and electrical. Several of these contemporary designs can be found with Mod-Shed.
The buildings can be used as offices, extra living spaces or hobby spaces.
Based out of Kennesaw, Georgia, Mod-Shed is a family-run business that creates modular spaces for all types of use. Their little sheds are CNC cut and prefabricated in sections for easy delivery. Each shed is constructed from 2×6, 2×8 or 2×10 beams depending on the size. Each kit is sold with T1-11 cement board siding and DIBOND aluminum composite paneling. Electrical and plumbing can be added to each unit.
Each Mod-Shed kit is delivered in completed sections.
The kits can be installed on a variety of foundations in about a day with basic hand and power tools. They can be used as offices, fitness and yoga spaces, extra living or sleeping spaces, or man caves/she-sheds. With some good space planning and minimal possessions, they could be turned into tiny homes.
