With a she shed exterior and a man cave interior this Tuff Shed building is the perfect compromise. Owners Jay and Pam matched the exterior style of their shed to their house, and on the inside they created large workshop inside.

The 12×24 TR-800 is certainly a show stopper with a 10:12 roof pitch and a custom 12″ overhang on each wall. It boasts custom arch vents, transom windows, and a decorative door upgrade as well. The custom windows and French doors were supplied by Jay and Pam.

Patty Hermosillo, Colorado Springs Area Sales Manager, had a great time working with Jim and Pam while designing and installing their backyard masterpiece. “Pam had a full Pinterest board and knew what she wanted down to the specific windows and French doors” remembers Patty. While the design and customization process was quick, mother nature had a say during the installation as the days were particularly windy. Luckily the new building came through the wind without a scratch and is ready for use.

Since the installation, Pam and Jay have had the building wired for electrical and installed two exterior lanterns on both sides of the French doors. When the weather warms up a bit they’ll also install a floodlight above the side door as well as some landscaping around the outside to tie it in with the rest of the yard. “We’re excited; it’s a beautiful building and they did a great job” says Jay of his new workshop.

When a compromise looks this good, there’s no sacrifice from either side.
