These small house kits come in a variety of sizes from a company called MODERN-SHED. The most exciting part about this company is that they have dealers spread throughout the country.

Their main office is located in Seattle, Washington. Their smallest is 8′ x 10′ and cost ranges from $11,200 to $17,500.

The largest one is 14′ x 30′ and the cost ranges from $52,000 to $57,500 and there are more than 8 other models that are different in design and size.

One of my favorites is their Northwest Shed model–the 12′ x 16′ model is almost 200 square feet. They use cedar siding and the large glass sliding doors on it.

Studio Shed is located in Boulder, Colorado and was founded by two people who love small houses but needed extra space.

A studio shed could be for storage, an office, meditation room, or anything else that you can think of.


The sheds come in prefabricated pieces and they use FSC-certified lumber. They’ve engineered the design to produce minimum waste.

Fabrication, Shipping, and Construction

The panels are fabricated in their building then they are packed and shipped to the customer’s site. They put everything together for you.


In most parts of the United States permits are not required for structures under 120 square feet. For this reason their 8×10, 8×14, and 10×12 models are more popular. Always check with your local regulation before making a decision.


Pricing starts at just $6,200 for a small 8×8 shed. You can use the configure option to customize your own shed–including its size, trim, color, windows, foundation, and installation through their website.
