I forgot to take pictures of our backyard shed when it was first installed, but I did get a few pictures of the interior soon after we began the process of finishing it. Here are some shots that show the inside after we had put up insulation and a little bit of drywall:
And here is how it looks now:
With the couch we got on Craigslist for $75:
I found the office chair at a thrift store for $20. The desk is the one my husband has had for years (we got a new desk for his basement office from the same people who were selling the couch. They gave it to us for $10). The box under the window is where the battery and inverter are stored for our solar setup. My husband built the box from 2x4s and plywood, and then I painted it and put on some recycled baseboard. All of the baseboard and windowsills came from a used building supply store, and cost about $12 for the whole room.
We left the rafters exposed and went with a vaulted ceiling. It took a bit more effort that way, but we’re really happy with the results:
Our current project is building a path to get to the shed. We found a mold that makes concrete look like little paving stones, and the 8 feet or so that is done so far is really cute. We also picked up supplies last week to build a little porch on the front of the office. We’re thrilled with how the whole project is turning out, and my husband loves being able to go to work somewhere with a view of more than a concrete wall.
