5 cool prefab backyard sheds

by Jenny Xie

We’ve already explored how prefab homes can offer a affordable, eco-friendly, stormproof, and down-right sexier alternative to traditional stick-built housing. But one of the most practical ways to upgrade your property with prefab is through a modern backyard shed.

Estimated price ranges are provided, but they do not include costs associated with permits, shipping, foundation, and installation unless otherwise noted.
