If you’re reading this with twelve other tabs open, a Zoom meeting in ten minutes (don’t forget your ‘meeting shirt’), a spouse taking a conference call in the room next to you, and kids rapidly losing interest in online schooling––we see you. 2020 has been a year of disruption, to say the least. Jobs lost, routines squashed, social life nonexistent, and space limited. For the 40% of Americans now working from home (and the many others schooling, creating, and socializing from there too), we came up with a solution. EXTudio is the backyard office studio that gives you space to breathe, think, and create.
Benefits of a backyard office studio
Imagine having office space to spread out in, take private Zoom meetings, and think critically about the work in front of you (instead of your chores list). You may know backyard office studios by some of their other names: modular shed, accessory dwelling unit (ADU), and prefab shed to name a few. But no matter what you call them, these versatile studios add space to your home without the expense or permanence of a complete renovation.
Besides offering much-needed square footage to your workspace, a backyard office studio is multi-purpose, cost-effective, private, and allows for more complete focus and higher productivity.
The EXTudio difference
All Access created EXTudio because we saw a solution to a challenge many people face: the lack of affordable, private space. With our access to high-quality materials and a team of skilled engineers and builders, we decided to do something about it. Our prefab sheds have a number of differences from competitors in the market:
If you follow us, you know that our team has a lot of experience putting together quality projects very quickly. For example, the entire Super Bowl Halftime show, which goes up in just minutes. Just like our larger projects, we can install a backyard office studio quickly and efficiently.
Little to no mess
Skip the construction crew, keep the convenience. The beauty of modular construction is that there aren’t many parts and it’s relatively simple to set up. And fewer materials mean little to no mess. Plus, these studios also mean fewer people trudging through your yard to build them.
Sure, they’re an investment upfront. But backyard studios are cheaper than adding on to your home, have lower labor costs, and can add overall value to your home. And prefabrication means you’re spending less money on materials as well.
EXTudio’s four standard styles easily complement your current home design. Choose between Contemporary, Pacific Lodge, Midcentury Modern, and Cape Cod. Or work with our team to customize the interior and exterior to your exact specifications.
EXTudio includes wall panels that come together quickly and are customizable so you can easily configure them to the size you need. And, as we all know, things change quickly. You may be working from home for the foreseeable future, but that doesn’t necessarily mean it will be a permanent situation. A backyard office studio can be easily upgraded or used for another application (like a backyard bar or guest suite).
Included features and custom add-ons
All EXTudio backyard studios start at $27,000 fully equipped and come with the following:
- Commercial grade carpet
- Insulation panels, which create an industrial interior look and soundproofing
- Heating and air conditioning
- Basic lighting
- Electrical hookups
All units’ exterior dimensions are 8’8” deep but the width can grow in 24” or 48” increments:
- 8’8″x 14’8″
- and so on
In addition to the included features, our team is happy to work with you to create custom add ons. These include things like hardwood flooring or extra lighting. Our All Access team brings their expertise to all of our projects, which includes specializing in custom features for EXTudio sheds.
Other EXTudio applications
While a backyard office studio might be an attractive prospect for many, we realize not everyone will need the EXTudio for this use. With its versatile design and materials, you can use the EXTudio for a number of different applications.
Here’s a shocking statistic: about 93% of households with school-age children are participating in distance learning right now. If you’re one of those households, you know all too well how crowded and chaotic it can get. EXTudio can easily be used as a homeschooling or distance learning space. A space where your kids can spread out their books, organize files, and attend Zoom lectures with quiet and focus.
Man cave or she shed
Prefab sheds have been popular in the last few years by the moniker of “she sheds.” EXTudio can be easily converted into a man cave or she shed––a space that can offer much-needed space to think, meditate, read, or drink.
A backyard studio is also a great studio space for both professionals and amateurs. Maybe you’re an artist in need of better lighting for your paintings. Or maybe you’re a hairstylist hoping to open up shop in a more controlled environment. Studio space can be a mental-health haven or business-saver.
Space to breathe with EXTudio
If there’s one thing we all need this year, it’s to be kind to ourselves and do things that make life easier. Whether you need extra space to work, learn, or unwind, a backyard office studio from EXTudio could be the answer you’re looking for. Contact our team today to get started on your project!
