Michaela’s Oceanside Studio

Dec 31, 2019 |  Building of the Month

Picture an idyllic studio with an ocean breeze, garden view, and lots of space to create. That’s just what artist Michaela Upp has. Her Tuff Shed barn from the Home Depot is a perfect creative escape, right in her backyard.

“Every time we’ve gone to the Home Depot for the past few years I’ve always looked at the Tuff Shed buildings,” says Michaela. “When we finally bought a house I knew I wanted a separate space for my art and a Tuff Shed building would be perfect.” After picking up a brochure on one of her display walks, Michaela chose a 10×12 TB-700 complete with double doors and plenty of windows. Framed by her backyard garden, the barn makes an ideal studio.

“The best part about it all is having a space that really feels like my own,” says Michaela of her studio. “It’s so dreamy to walk out into my garden and see a big, inviting red barn surrounded by roses.”
