How to Create a Home Office When You Have No Space

A dedicated workspace at home allows you to set aside everyday distractions and focus on the work at hand. Whether you need a place to work your full-time job, your side hustle, or your own business, a home office can easily be yours--without sacrificing any space in your home. Before we jump in, let’s determine if you need a home office.

You might need a home office if:

  • You work from home and your paperwork is covered with PB&J and doggie drool

  • You spend too much of your day commuting

  • You want to spend more time at home, closer to your family

  • Your home–based business “office” is your kitchen table

  • Your customers/clients have to move laundry to find a place to sit

  • You can’t find office rental space within your budget

  • Your side hustle has overtaken the garage

  • You are spending more money on office space than it's worth


Now that you know why you need a home office, you are probably wondering where you are going to put it. The garage is full. The kitchen table isn’t an option. The bonus room has long been the kids’ playroom. You don’t have the time or money to add on to your home. What now?

Here’s the answer. A backyard shed. Before you dismiss the idea, hear us out. Here are some reasons why it’s the perfect solution:

  • It’s affordable—more affordable (and more practical) than a construction project.

  • It’s customizable. You choose the size, the configuration, the doors, the windows, colors, etc. of the shed.

  • Payment options are flexible. Choose from 90 days same as cash or rent-to-own if payment in full is not possible.

  • It doesn’t take away any of your household space

  • It adds value to your home

  • It’s flexible space that can also be used for entertaining and other purposes.

Are you ready to explore the idea? Here are some steps to get you started.
