With a growing demand for flexible space in homes across the country and a surge in sales of Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs), Studio Shed, the leader in modern, prefabricated outdoor structures, has announced the first virtual ADU showroom in the industry through an exclusive partnership with SPINE [https://spine3d.com]. Homeowners can now easily design, visualize, and scale their custom backyard sheds and home improvement projects.
“Since the start of the pandemic, we have not only seen an increase in sheer volume of shed sales but, this year, there is a real demand to build larger, more flexible spaces including ADUs,” said Jeremy Nova, co-founder and creative director of Studio Shed. “Our customers want to create and design their unique spaces on their own time and with our new showroom, they can now visualize exactly how their projects will look in their own backyards.”
After experiencing explosive growth in 2020 for small single room studios (120-180 sq. ft.) and larger ADUs with integrated kitchens and bathrooms (300-1000 sq. ft.), Studio Shed had record-setting revenue in sales this summer. Today, nine out of ten customers design a fully finished shed with drywall, electricity, and interior finishes for use as guest suites, home offices, workout studios and more. Committed to elevating the shopping experience for those customers, the company designed the new virtual showroom to make researching cabinets, flooring, and countertops fun and easy, even including interactive views of fully staged interior and exterior layout examples.
“The online 360º configurator [https://tour.studio-shed.com] is the first of its kind and allows Studio Shed customers to explore backyard modern sheds and ADUs like never before,” said Johann Beckford, co-owner and COO of SPINE. “These interactive walkthroughs can be experienced on any device, only require an internet connection, embedded on any webpage, and easily shared on social media.”
Studio Shed is redefining the category of prefabricated backyard structures by creating turnkey lifestyle solutions. Delivered flat-packaged as a kit and installed DIY or through the company’s network of certified installers, models are going from online customization to home delivery in 6-8 weeks. In addition to the new ADU showroom, the Colorado-based company launched new online financing options this year, location-based tools to identify and manage necessary permits, and exclusive partnerships with leading companies such as Marvin Windows.
