Oh, Canada

Canadianflag
In recent months, Modern-Shed has been getting more and more calls for jobs up in Canada.
We love our Canadian customers and can absolutely ship and sell to our northern neighbors, however, there is one important caveat to remember:
Due to the complexities of international labor laws, it is not legal for Modern-Shed installers to actually come out to your property and install a shed for you if you live in Canada. 
So, to reiterate, we can sell and ship to Canada, but we cannot install. We can absolutely help our Modern-Shed customers in Canada find contractors in your area who can help you finish the job.

Why we use … superior flooring

Talking about floors may seem boring.

However, a flooring system underpins an entire structure and gets so much use and abuse; it is the backbone of our structures. I mean, have you ever walked, jumped or put a grand piano on your walls?

Our customers use their Modern-Sheds for any number of uses, including home offices, gyms and music rooms. In order to give them the most flexibility with how they are going to use their shed now and in the future, we build our floor systems to last a very long time and endure any wear that may occur.

Modern-Shed flooring — built to withstand any number of musical instruments!

The Modern-Shed Man Cave/Dad’s Office

BAY AREA — As a salesman working from home, Scott knew he and his family were running out of space.

Their three-bedroom home with a small office was maxed out — each of the two kids had their own room, and Scott’s wife began to use the office for her own home business, pushing Scott and his work to the dining room table.

“We live in Northern California, so properties are typically smaller,” he said. “I was working at the kitchen table, at the dining room table, and making calls was distracting. We were maxed out, henced using the common area or Starbucks for work.” Continue reading

Modern-Shed living

Apartment Therapy profiled one of our beautiful, little Modern-Shed guest cottages in San Rafael, Calif.

Aimée Mazzenga took lovely photos of our client Rebecca’s 345-square-foot space, which she uses as a guest home for out-of-town visitors.

As quoted in the article, “For years, Rebecca had dreamed about building a guest house in the back of their property. Their narrow plot of land (49.5′ x 152.5′) caused challenges in the construction process, though. When they discovered Modern Shed, they realized the advantages of building a pre-fab home. Once they penciled out costs versus return, (resale value to home and possible rental value) they wondered why they didn’t do this sooner.”
