Shoreline, Wash. — Alex’s garage was at the end of its life, but it was the only place in his small home he could keep his washer-dryer unit and hot water heater.
“The garage wasn’t in great shape,” Alex recalls. “It wasn’t convenient at all. It had a big, heavy metal door that I’d have to leave open if I were doing laundry.”
Alex wanted an updated garage, not only to store the laundry unit, but also to give him more space beyond his 900-square-foot home.
He started looking at custom garage conversions before his brother told him about Modern-Shed.
“The idea of it (also) being office space or another place to hang out, I thought that would be helpful,” he says. “I work in sales and I wasn’t working from home at the time, but now I am able to.”
Modern-Shed built a 10-by-20 space that functions as storage for the washer, dryer and water heater, as well as a home office and man cave for Alex.
Contractors also extended the roof and leveraged additional space to create a small storage unit adjacent to the office, where Alex now keeps garden supplies and outdoor gear.
“The entire process went really well,” he says. “It was all so simple.”
