Eye Candy: New Uses For Old Backyard Sheds

Eye Candy: New Uses For Old Backyard Sheds

Sheds aren't just for storing tools anymore. When I was a kid, my dad put an addition onto his shed so that I could have a fort to play in (it was awesome). Since then, I've always dreamed of having an office in a shed - but people are using them for all kinds of other things too.
