That’s the wonderful thing about a SheShed flatpack cabin is you have the ability to build it however you like, match your home or get creative! So, whether you're a solopreneur or small business owner, read on to get some inspiration on how to create the perfect backyard oasis for working from home. 


Vivien is an Interior Designer and Home Renovations Expert, has created a stunning space to both work and relax with her SheShed Cabana Kitset Cabin built next to her pool.

“We’re using the Cabana as an office, pool room & guest house. The space feels a lot bigger than what we thought it would!

Such a great space can be constructed in a short time with no council approval while adding value to your property.

We’re so happy with this shed, it’s changed the way we live!”

“Both Mark and I work from home which isn’t an ideal situation in a small house. We had always dreamed of having a backyard studio where Mark could work from and I can work in peace and quiet inside. We fitted a shelf so he can display and store all of his favourite magazines & design books. And added a spot to stash his record collection.What I love about our Star Cabin, is that it’s given us an extra room. It’s essentially turned our three bedroom house into four bedrooms.”


A great little SheShed build in Queensland, where Vanessa can work her magic, engaging great talent for Microsoft, right from her own back yard garden. “This is my corner of the world that I can step from home into work mode.” She also says that a reverse-cycle air conditioner is a must for Brisbane’s summers!


A busy Mum and TV Presenter, Carly wanted to create a quiet space to work from at home, where she could get away from everything and be productive in peace. Using a SheShed Star Cabin kitset, with the addition of a deck and wooden boardwalk pathway from the house. Carly painted the exterior to match in with her house style.

“I think its important, as you sort of lose yourself as a Mum or as a Dad and you are in the thick of being a parent, being a worker and being everything to everyone else. You just need to create a….little space – and these Sheds are perfect for that!”

"The She Shed looks so good. Even the neighbours were impressed by the finish and the shingle roof. It also feels very spacious inside with lots of headroom compared to other products we looked at. The SheShed has given us more space and a different place to work/relax other than in the house."


A new range of kitset cabins in a modern contemporary style. Our Tussock display was the first one built at our NZ Shedquarters in Applyby, in the South Island. With its narrower depth and rectangular footprint, the smallest Tussock cabin can fit in tighter backyard spaces and makes a perfect home office space. Some of the other great features are 45mm thick solid-timber walls for better natural insulation, untreated timber for a more natural feeling, and it comes with both Colorsteel/Colorbond roofing and to help regulate that temperature, roof insulation is also included. 


Introducing our newest kitset cabin style, the Star Summit. Our much loved Star Cabin has been reinvented! A sleek new modern cabin in our most popular 3x3m Nordic Spruce kitset size. It's been redesigned with all the features you love from our Star Cabin, plus some new ones that add a new modern look to fit in with your property and extra durability with the new “Summit” style roof.
