10 unique uses for a portable outdoor building

Have you taken a stroll around your neighborhood? During your drive, you may have noticed a house or two with a large shed in the backyard. But, guess what. It probably wasn't a shed.

In fact, it could've been a workshop - a studio, maybe even a tiny home. In this day and age, outdoor portable buildings can serve a variety of needs. Whether it's storing away tools for the winter or using the extra space for homeschooling, the only limitation is your imagination.

So, what all can a portable building be used for? Our team here at Quality Buildings has listed a few of many ways you can get the most out of your space.

 

1. Art Studio

If you're a painter, sculptor, designer or crafter, a studio is exactly what you need. You can absorb some inspiration as you work in a space that's all your own.

2. Garage

Need a home for your motorcycle or Vespa? A portable building is a great way to keep your vehicles out of the elements while saving square footage in the actual garage.

3. Tiny Home

Looking to downsize? A tiny home is definitely the way to do it. And with insulation, electricity and roof options, it's easy to personalize it to your specific needs.

4. Laundry Room

We don't know about you, but sometimes the laundry can really heat up the home. If you're looking to distribute some of the warmth or for a place to hang-dry clothes, an outdoor laundry space could be the perfect solution.

5. Repair Shop

Do you like to work on your bike? A portable building can quickly transform into your own personal repair shop. You can also use it to repair and stow away items like lawn mowers, weed eaters, and other lawn care equipment.

6. Homeschooling

If you homeschool, it can be difficult getting your kids to focus. A portable building is great to use as extra space. Plus, you can proudly display any art or homework without the worry of taking it down the next day.

7. Music Studio

Are you a breakout musician? Or, have a garage band you simply like kicking it with? Free up some space in the house and take it outside in a portable building. Bonus points if you install insulation to help soundproof. Your neighbors will thank you.

8. Workshop

Do have a Ron Swanson of your own? Gift them the dream woodworking and they'll be able to enjoy steak and the smell of lumber in peace.

9. Home Gym

Do you have a health-based resolution this year? Transform a portable building into a yoga studio or personal gym. It's a great way get fit and ditch the gym.

10. Playhouse

Do your kids have an imagination all their own? Give them a space to play and learn. A portable building is a perfect outdoor playhouse or fort.

These are some great ideas. We tend to think of portable buildings in the strict outdoor sense. Lawn and yard tool storage. While ideal, they’re much more versatile than just outdoor sheds.

Thanks for sharing your insight!
