Less Is More

Recently featured in The New York Times, a backyard home office by Kanga Room Systems provides 120 extra square feet for those now working from home. (photo courtesy Kanga Room Systems).

Finding a work-life balance in this brave new quarantine world isn't always easy. So we were excited to read "Your New Home Office May Be in the Backyard" in The New York Times. The article highlights the recent trend of building small home office sheds that are both affordable and attractive.

At Splinter Creek, most lots average 10 acres, making your backyard ideal for a tucked-away home office retreat in the woods.

Besides that, our building philosophy has always been to live lightly on the land, where homeowners are encouraged to create smaller dwellings that reflect their individual tastes while complementing the natural surroundings and overall character of the community.

We enjoyed these inspirational spaces and wanted to share them with you.

Small sheds by Modern Shed are made to serve as storage or other popular uses such as small craft studios or a small office space. They are 8' deep and up to 12-16' wide (photo courtesy Modern Shed).
