Krista’s Do It All Office

Nov 20, 2020 |  Building of the Month

2020 has truly been the year of transforming the space inside your home. For our customer Krista, finding space for a home gym and home office meant expanding her living space into the backyard. Her new barn does all that and more, giving her room to work, relax, and exercise, all in one versatile space.

With four teenagers inside the home, Krista knew that there was not enough space to work and live. “When everything shut down, we realized that there was just not enough space inside our home for all of us with work, school, and in our down time,” laughs Krista. Inspired by all the home offices she had seen online, she started putting together the plans for a home office of her own.

For Krista and her family, Tuff Shed was the first choice. While they are all pretty handy, Krista knew that building a shed and finishing out the interior was too large of a project. “In the end, we wanted a building that was installed for us and had the quality we needed. Between Tuff Shed’s quality and the financing options at Home Depot, it was exactly what we needed,” says Krista. She chose a 12×18 TB-700 complete with an interior loft for more usable space.

Using a Project Loan from The Home Depot, Krista was able to purchase her new shed and all the finishing touches for the inside all at once. “Honestly that made this entire home office project really helpful. With the money that I was paying for a couple gym memberships, I was able to get a whole office, home gym, and space to relax right at home.”

That’s right, her project loan payments are nearly identical to monthly gym memberships. Krista’s new barn houses her home office, gym equipment, and even a couple of different areas to relax. The barn works great for her office hours and when she’s not making use of the space, her teenagers have found it to be their new favorite place to spend time. Now that’s a do it all kind of home office.
