Space is precious, and every square foot adds value. This is why most homeowners prefer cabins and backyard structures with lofts installed. Lofts or attics help add space without hindering the common area. The purpose of a loft is to offer extra space. They are extremely versatile and affordable compared to adding a new room or a floor. Loft lovers are lured toward the upstairs area. Young families use the additional space as a play area because adults can easily monitor them. Lofted cabins are generally used as home offices, bedrooms, storage spaces and recreational spaces. 

Customize the loft space

Regarding loft customization, there are plenty of ideas and options. One can add extra loft space, windows, doors, and other upgrades. For instance, you can get plenty of sunlight if the window is installed just above the loft. The window also gives visual appeal to the interior. Having a cabin with a loft can increase the value of your property. You can use the space underneath to set up a closet or leave the floor unused. You can have more space by installing rafters. Loft sizes are usually standard but they can be changed to meet your customized requirements. SturdiShed has a team of experts who are available for consultation on upgrades. 

What factors to consider while having a loft space?

There are various things to consider while designing a lofted cabin. Designing the loft part requires a few considerations. Here are some questions you need to ask yourself before you visit us for consultation:

  • How do you wish to utilize the space?
  • How much room do you need? 
  • How much natural light should come inside?
  • What is the extent of privacy you need?
  • How much time would you spend in the loft?

Small property owners can think of adding a loft when they plan expansion ideas to have more/additional space. A lofted cabin helps to add more space compared to A-frame cabins. Folks prefer lofted cabins or barns with gambrel roofs and sufficient open spaces. There is a notion that people who like high ceilings should not include lofts. Get the height customized if you do not like it too low, but it will not be as high as a usual ceiling. Discuss with the SturdiShed designer so that every idea is accurately incorporated into your cabin plans. 

Opt for a prefab cabin

A lofted cabin is an affordable option but the cost calculation depends on various factors like labor, flooring, whether you prefer stairs or ladder, electricity, permits, etc. Therefore, investing in a prefab structure is better than building a DIY cabin. At SturdiShed, we follow a streamlined process from the planning phase to the final delivery of the backyard structures.  

Final words – financing by SturdiShed

We have flexible rent-to-own options that benefit those who require financing to own a Sturdished lofted cabin or any other backyard structure.

Leonard Daniel loves gospel music. As anyone with extensive instruments and equipment can attest, it quickly takes up a lot of space. Leonard decided to get a backyard building for his musical passion.

He saw our Sturdi-Shed lot in Cresson and decided to stop in. Having been in construction for many years, Leonard liked the quality of our buildings.

He settled on a 12×16 ft Sturdi-Shed Gable Cabin Shell with a single residential door and two windows.

After the building was delivered, he added electrical, insulation, and drywall. For the floor, he installed pine colored laminate that was salvaged from a family member’s project and laid down a large piece of carpet.

Leonard has a large collection of tapes, records, and CDs. In addition, he has the equipment to play the different formats, as well as dub them to cd.

When Leonard needed to move to another property, we moved his building to his current residence. He expected the drywall to crack from the stress of moving but was pleasantly surprised to find the drywall in perfect condition after the move — a testament to the strength and rigidity of his cabin.

I have not done any refinishing since it’s been here,” he says, “the building held up beautifully.”

Leonard enjoys sharing his vocal talent and bass guitar skills with his local church in Granbury, TX. For him it’s not entertainment, it’s a form of worship.

When Darla Yarnold needed a way to provide for her family, she settled on starting a dog grooming business near Joshua, TX.

Darla loves dogs, and the new venture gave her a way to support her family. Fast forward about five years, and Darla’s Dog Grooming had outgrown the small building she was in. So she began the search for the perfect new building.

With Sturdi Shed, she found just the building she wanted. As soon as she stepped inside, she knew it was the one. “I walked in it, and it felt like home,” she says.

Her building is the Sturdi Shed 14×24 Cabin Shell. It has five windows and two residential-style walk doors. Darla likes to have a fun and colorful atmosphere at her business, so she painted the exterior a bright green. She positioned her new cabin shell next to the shed she had been using and connected the two with a short hallway.

They finished out the interior with insulation, electrical, and drywall. With the help of family members and some resourcefulness, Darla was able to finish out her building for slightly over $3000, including the A/C unit.

Darla loves her Sturdi Shed building. The payment options were a good fit, and the quality of the building is great.

“I would like to thank Sturdi Shed for the ability to provide for my family,” she says, “Because, without the building, I couldn’t make a living for my family.”

Shannon Gonzalez is the owner of Mums and Kisses Homecoming Mums in Crowley, Texas. She started Mums and Kisses after her father died. It was a creative outlet and a way to take her mind off her loss. 

Homecoming Mums are a tradition that began in Texas and has spread to other states. A glorious riot of silk mums and satin ribbons, they’re like a Texas-sized corsage. Mums and Kisses ships between 350-400 mums a year. To make all those mums, Shannon uses about 16,000 yards of satin ribbon (9.5 miles) per year. 

After making mums in her dining room for a year, Shannon needed more space to work. She also needed a dock door for shipping. While driving to pick up her son, she noticed a new Sturdi-Shed location in Joshua, Texas, and stopped by. 

“The shopping was fun. You could see inside all of the buildings,” Shannon said. After shopping for sheds elsewhere, Shannon says Sturdi-Shed had the best quality as well as simple financing options. She chose a 10×24 Sturdi-Shed Garage.

After delivery, the Gonzalezes transformed her shed into a workshop for Mums and Kisses, adding insulation, drywall, and shelving and cabinetry for all the mum-making supplies. 

Shannon loves her new workshop. With good lighting and plenty of space, she is able to focus and work without distractions. She likes having space for her customers to see and touch the mums. 

“The overall experience with Sturdi-Shed was very impressive. They let me customize the inside as well as where I put my doors, my windows, what color I wanted for the outside,” Shannon says. “It was a very quick delivery time as well, so we were very happy with them.” 

From now until homecoming, that’s where you’ll find Shannon—in her Sturdi-Shed, making beautiful mums.

Max Hamilton has loved dogs all his life. He currently breeds Tolars and Schnauzers on his rural property near Midway, TX. 

Max enjoys having dogs in his home, but there came a point at which he needed to build an official kennel where it would be easy to take care of the dogs and show puppies to prospective buyers.

His local Sturdi Shed dealer was very helpful in walking Max through his options. Max had originally planned to purchase a 16×16 ft backyard building, but when he had the option to purchase a 16×20 ft pre-built model at a great price, he went for it.

His 16×20 ft Sturdi Shed Gable Cabin Shell has a 4 ft porch, so the interior is still 16×16 ft, but this way his building looks really sharp. Inside, Max added electrical, insulation, and wood-look paneling that is easy to clean. 

He installed kennels along the left side. He plumbed the back wall for his washer and dryer, sink, and tankless water heater. He has a desk where he can easily take care of paperwork as well as perform the needed microscope work.

The end result is a functional and attractive home for dogs that makes it easier for Max to care for his dogs and more pleasant for his customers.

Max has been very pleased with his cabin shell, and would definitely recommend Sturdi Shed to others who need a dedicated dog kennel. 

“Everything has just been really great,” he says.

James Hilt is a serious HAM radio enthusiast. He’s loved radios and electronics since he was a little boy, talking with his Grandpa on a walkie talkie. 

After moving to his current home in Weatherford, he decided to move his station into a backyard building, rather than inside his house.

An electrician by trade, James didn’t like the quality of the buildings he was seeing at big box stores, so he decided to check out the Sturdi Shed dealership in Weatherford, TX. He immediately felt comfortable with the salesperson, and really liked the sturdiness of our building’s construction.

He settled on a 10×16 ft Sturdi Shed with a single-window and a steel door. After the building was in place, he wired in a heavy-duty electrical system, insulated the walls and ceiling, and finished out the interior with painted OSB and carpet. He added a small air conditioner to thwart the Texas heat and added heavy duty shelving and workbenches for his radio equipment. 

The building has a peaceful, man cave-like vibe to it. Besides communicating with fellow enthusiasts from Japan and Australia, James enjoys spending time in his Sturdi Shed, repairing and restoring vintage equipment. Much of his equipment was built in the 1950s and 1960s. 

Having a truly sturdy shed was important to James, since some of his radio equipment is very heavy. He liked that the construction quality of his building is similar to a home, and he also liked the free delivery!

James is proud of his Sturdi Shed, but there is one risk that other married men should know about — his wife now wants a she shed!

Integrity Biochem is a biofluid company that produces and manufactures chemicals. They recently moved into an industrial facility outside of Godley, Texas. The property had an existing manufacturing building and office building. The back of the office building was configured as a shop, so they converted half of the shop into a laboratory.

With less space in the office building, the staff at Integrity decided they needed some additional storage space to hold lab samples. 

Lee Manning is the plant manager. He oversees manufacturing, as well as the upgrades to the facility. He stopped in at our location in Godley and learned about how we construct our buildings. He also looked at a competitor’s buildings, but he felt that Sturdi Shed offered a shed that was more robust and would meet their needs better.

They decided on a 10×24 ft garage. While that isn’t a standard size, we were able to customize the building to meet their needs.

The guys at Integrity decided to locate their new shed at the back of the office, a short walk from the lab. The shed is outfitted with some shelving for storage, and a roll-up door gives them options for easy access. They store both small chemical samples and five-gallon buckets.

“I would recommend Sturdi Shed for your storage needs. The product is good — its quality and the company is easy to work with,” says Lee.

Robert and Cherie Spurlock had an old metal shed on their property in Longview, TX, but it leaked, so they tore it down. They planned to replace the storage shed with a wooden shed, but as they were shopping, Robert started thinking about getting a shed large enough to also be his workshop.

The Spurlock’s shopped other brands, but when they visited our Sturdi Shed location in Longview, they were impressed with the craftsmanship and sturdiness of the buildings. They settled on a Sturdi Shed 10×16 ft Utility Shed. 

Robert enjoyed working with the Sturdi Shed representative in Longview. 

“The agent that we went here in Longview, he was very polite, very knowledgeable . . . and he would show you different sizes of the Sturdi Shed,” he says. 

“It’s very easy. You make the down payment, and then he orders it for you, and they have financing for you if you want it.”

Robert is a jeweler, and he wanted a workshop at home where he could work on jewelry repairs in the evening. So, rather than get two separate buildings, Robert decided to put a dividing wall between the two sections and a door in each end. The workshop side has a wide, single door, and the storage side has the classic double doors.

Robert added skirting to the building and finished out the interior of the workshop with insulation, electrical, sheetrock, and flooring. With his small heat/cool unit, Robert can now work in comfort all year long.

“If you want a good, well-built building,” says Robert, “Sturdi Shed makes the best.”

Donna O’Toole has enjoyed crafting as a hobby for quite a few years. More recently, her daughter nudged her to consider getting a backyard shed.

Donna and her husband Bob enjoyed perusing the Sturdi Shed lot in Corsicana on Beaton St. Donna was very impressed with the quality of the buildings.

While they started by looking for a small shed, they quickly started thinking about how nice it would be to have a large shed — large enough to both store Bob’s tools and have a crafting area for Donna.

Working with Sturdi Shed dealer Jim Stewart, they settled on a 12×24 ft Sturdi Shed Lofted Barn, painted gray and white to match their home. One end has a large roll-up door large enough for a lawnmower. The long side of the building has a single door, making it easy for Donna to get in and out of her crafting space.

So far, the crafting space isn’t fully finished out, but it does have a window air conditioner, pegboard, and electricity. Donna hopes to fully finish out the interior with sheetrock in the future.

For now, the simple space provides a wonderful little getaway area where Donna can immerse herself in her art. A large sign on the wall says “DONNA’S SCRAPPY PLACE.”

“I come out here in the morning, and I lose track of time,” says Donna. “It’s just a place for me to relax and enjoy my art.”

A word of caution, though, to husbands who are considering sharing a shed with their wife. Donna says she may take over the entire barn for her hobbies!

After Gary Prewitt moved onto his retirement property in east Texas, he needed a space where he could both play music and workout.

Along with his wife Mary, he began shopping for different storage shed brands. Gary liked the quality of the paint and the heavy-duty construction he found on the Sturdi Shed models. He settled on a 14 x 28 ft Gable Cabin Shell with a porch.

To make his new man cave comfortable, Gary installed electrical, insulation, wall paneling, and laminate flooring. To keep costs down and to go along with the rustic look, Gary cut 4×8 ft sheets of floor underlayment (thin plywood) in half and used them as ceiling panels.

Outside he installed skirting, which helps keep critters out and makes the building more energy-efficient. Gary is pleased that it only takes one electric heater to keep the building comfortable.

Gary has a sizeable collection of vinyl records that he finds at garage sales. He then digitizes the old albums, making so he can enjoy the tunes on his phone. His ritual is to digitize two LP records per day, which takes 1 ½ hours. During that time he does his cardio workout.

For Gary, his new Sturdi Shed is not just about having a fun retirement,  it’s also about living a healthier lifestyle.

Larry and Shelly Hutson recently had the opportunity to purchase a lake lot near Teague, TX. Their idea was to place a small home on the lot that could serve as a vacation home. Larry is pretty capable when it comes to DIY, so the couple started looking for a basic structure that they could finish out themselves.

With Sturdi Shed, they found the building they were looking for. They settled on a 16 x 44 ft gable cabin shell, as well as a 12 x 20 ft garage for their motorcycles. 

They designed the layout themselves before they purchased the cabin shell so that the windows would be in the correct places. The cabin features two bedrooms, a full bathroom, as well as a full kitchen and living room. To save space, they installed a tankless water heater and used sliding barn doors.

One of the big challenges of a small space is storage, so Larry built a full-length deck with storage space underneath the deck. Another unique feature is that the garage has a “doggy palace” built on the backside for the couple’s two dogs.

The couple watched home design shows for inspiration, and it shows. The cabin has a modern vibe with a rustic flair, perfect for a home by the lake.

Larry and Shelly are happy with their cabin and would definitely recommend Sturdi Shed to other buyers.

Jeff Summers is a real estate investor who lives in rural Fort Worth. His home office worked well until his wife started working from home several days a week as well, and began sharing his office space.

Jeff needed a separate space where he could stay organized without fear of having his papers re-shuffled or relocated while he was away. On the way home from town one night, Jeff swung in at his local Sturdi Shed dealer. “Those buildings were pretty impressive,” he says.

He settled on a Sturdi Shed 10×12 ft Utility Shed with a single entry door. Although it’s an office, he wanted it to feel like a man cave. 

After his building was delivered, Jeff and his buddy got to work. They installed rustic cedar on the walls and roof. The floor is solid oak tongue and groove flooring. Jeff used some of the flooring material to make a long counter top for his tax paperwork.

He installed LED lights overhead, and a heat/cool unit to keep things comfy year around. A refrigerator, a screen door for natural ventilation, and a redwood deck are still on his to-do list.

Jeff estimates he spent less than $2000, including the air conditioning unit, to finish out and furnish his office/man cave.

Jeff is very pleased with his Sturdi Shed office. “I used to do construction years ago,” he says. “They actually know what they’re doing and they really build a nice building. I highly recommend the building.”

He hopes to purchase another Sturdi Shed building in the future. “This won’t be my last Sturdi Shed,” he says. “I guarantee it.”

Tim and Michelle Brown, along with their daughter Brooke love horses. When you have horses, you need a tack room of some kind. For a while, Tim’s shop did double duty as both a tack room and a home mechanic’s garage, but it wasn’t ideal.

Michelle and Brooke wanted a space they could dedicate to feed, saddles, and all things animal. Michelle shopped a few different options, but couldn’t find the specific roof style and color that she wanted until she visited our Cresson Sturdi-Shed dealer.

Although they were originally looking for a 10×12 ft shed, they realized they could upgrade to a Sturdi-Shed 10×16 Utility for very little additional money. They settled on the Hunter Green metal roof, Cream Delight base, and Blackened Pine trim colors. 

Inside the shed, they spread an area rug on the floor and added saddle racks and shelving. The result is a pleasing, spacious space with easy access to all the riding gear.

The ladies of the family have achieved their mission.

“It’s easy for us, because we have our own separate little spaces now,” says Brooke. “And that’s what we love about it.”
