Over time, you may outgrow your homes and require more space. However, moving to a larger property or building an addition to your home may not be an affordable option. If you are in need of extra space, then perhaps you have considered if it is possible to convert a shed into a house.
While converting a shed into a house can cost you less than purchasing a new home, making a shed with bedroom and bathroom capabilities can be a tricky and costly endeavor to undertake on your own. Here are some of the ways you can convert a shed into a house and a few of the costs that you may incur in the process.
The cost of converting your shed into an additional living space will vary based on your specific goals. However, before you convert a shed into a house with a bedroom and bathroom, here are a couple expenses you may come across:
To get running water in your shed for a bathroom sink, shower, or toilet, you will have to install plumbing lines that will require a permit and extensive material and labor costs.
Painting the exterior of your shed will freshen up its appearance and help it to look more like a home. Matching the color of your shed with your existing house is also a nice touch that will complement your backyard space.
Adding new furnishings and home décor to the interior will make your shed feel more like home. However, such personal touches will come with a cost.
The heat in Florida is no joke, so an air conditioner is going to be a necessity in your new living space. Since the shed is separate from your home, you will need an electricity extension to add any electrical appliances and devices such as a TV or minifridge. Therefore, running electricity is another expense to consider.
When converting a shed into a house, changing the shed’s exterior is going to be more complicated than modifying the interior. Adding windows to your shed is a great way to give the space more natural daylight. It can also make your shed feel bigger and brighter and allow fresh air inside. If your current shed lacks windows, perhaps you should upgrade to a larger more accommodating model.
