One of the hottest new trends in real estate is making an impact on the business world. Entrepreneurs around the country are turning to tiny houses, or small shed-like structures to house their offices or business headquarters.
Below are some of the companies currently offering these types of structures to homeowners and entrepreneurs, along with some of the benefits of using them as home offices.
MetroPrefab offers a structure called the MetroSHED, a freestanding structure that can be fully insulated and made to match basically any home style. The structures have large glass doors and high ceilings to make them feel large and comfortable. But standard dimensions are just 9×13 ft.
Founder David Ballinger estimates that hundreds of the company’s customers use MetroSHEDs as home offices. Some are musicians who use them as recording studios or artists who use them as creative getaways. Other client based businesses, like massage therapists, use them so that they can keep their businesses home based but avoid bringing clients into their family’s personal space.
