The latest structure at the Micro Showcase is a 12’x24′ Studio Shed, built in spring of 2014. Conceptually, it made sense to have a larger sheltered common gathering area for events, and to house a workshop. I previously had a 8×20 shipping container,which was never much to look at, was quite narrow, and has no windows or insulation.
I looked around at many different pre-fab shed options, and decided that Studio Shed was one of the best-in-class options for a small foundation built structure- very well designed, lots of light, fairly affordable, versatile and a fairly quick design/ship/build timeline. I think this company makes some of the most attractive storage and garage structures around, and they also have a ‘lifestyle‘ line that are perfect for foundation-built micro homes, backyard ADU’s (accessory dwelling units), art studios, guest rooms, etc. The company has common values about re-envisioning what our space needs really are.
