A Backyard Observatory

Jun 13, 2018 |  Building of the Month

John Babos wanted a place to look at the stars. A blanket laid out on the lawn could have been a solution, but John had something a bit grander in mind– a backyard observatory. John knew he needed a building that could be designed to fit his needs, and no company could do that better than Tuff Shed.

His new 12×16 TR-800 was fully customized to become the ideal observatory. Instead of the traditional ranch-style roof, John requested a single slope roof, to accommodate a future observatory dome on top. “It works really well,” says John. “I’m trying to convince my wife that it’s for storage and an observatory, and not a second home for me.”
