Small outbuildings may look simple, but they can give your lifestyle a major upgrade. More than just storage spaces, they help you save time, stress less, work more efficiently, and have more fun.
Jamaica Cottage Shop, located in Vermont and shipping throughout Canada and the US, specializes in highly customizable post and beam timber frame storage sheds, garden sheds, and storage-shed kits. A wide variety of prefab cottages, utility enclosures and cabin kits are offered. There are a host of options to create a garage, home office, or yoga studio that suits your needs and enhances your property. All kits ship free* and are precut, color-coded and include a set of detailed step-by-step plans. Even if you are just looking to use your own lumber, a free set of DIY plans for a Vermont shed can be downloaded simply for signing up for the Funky Chicken newsletter.
Practicality and Efficiency
Instead of cramming all your tools and equipment into the garage, keep them in a dedicated utility shed for easy access. Large models even have space for a riding lawnmower or utility tractor.
A shed helps with your homesteading and sustainable living efforts by creating space for your canned garden produce and other non-perishable foods, as well as household supplies. A small shelter can also house chickens or store firewood.
If you work from home, a cabin will provide a more orderly, distraction-free environment than a room in the house. Alternatively, use a cabin as a homework center for your kids.
