My Tuff Shed Workshop – Reveal

I can’t believe the time has come. My workshop is finally DONE!!

I’ve spent months personalizing my new Tuff Shed to become a full DIY workshop for me and my projects. Over the summer, Tuff Shed delivered and built my new Premier Pro Tall Ranch in our backyard within a few hours. I was so thrilled with the idea of turning it into a space dedicated to my future projects and for all of my tool storage.

Over the following months I worked to slowly transform the shed into the workshop of my dreams, beginning with the exterior. I then worked my way inside and started by creating a large tool storage system. And for some beautiful character adding wood planks to the walls and ceiling. My vision for the space was a place that is bright, airy, and inspiring for me. And it turned out much more beautiful and inspiring than I could’ve imagined! 


Before doing any of the aesthetic work…I used the help of my Father-in-Law to run electrical to the shed. I wanted to be able to use this workshop year round, so finishing it completely was the best option. After running electricity, we installed a Mini Split for Heat/Air.

I was never planning on actually designing the space for aesthetic purposes. In fact, my intentions were to only leave it completely functional. But once it started all coming together, I could not resist. I added some Ikea drawer units for functional and beautiful tool storage and topped that off with a beautiful Butcher Block countertop.

Interior Design

I stained the wood walls for some beautiful warmth in contrast to a painted creamy white ceiling. Both have such beautiful texture. I finished it all off by adding some decorative elements. I installed faux marble vinyl tiles on the floor. All these things brought it to the next level and I could not be happier how how it looks and FEELS. Now I get to feel so much inspiration and satisfaction by just existing in the space. I can’t wait for all the projects that will come to life in here and all of the sketches and ideas that will be born.

  1. This shop is just soooooo lovely. I saw the TS commercial just this morning, and had to look up this model. Which led me to your blog. Thank you for sharing your info on this build.
    May I ask what all this set you back?
    I’m looking at starting to budget for an outdoor studio/workshop for my more messy projects. 😉😉 I hope to have something like this in the next couple of years. Enjoy your space!!! It’s awesome.

    • Stacy, I would love to give you a quote for the shed itself. We can build any size you like. Quotes are free and it’s the best time of the year to buy. Great sales and short installation times.

  2. Hey Cass, u know if tuff shed could build the same layout that you’ve created, but double the size? I’m thinking of building one to use as a ADU? your building is sooo cool.
    Thank you

  3. Hi Cass!! Just gorgeous! Can you PLEASE share the paint you used on the exterior? I’m in love and want to do a shed like this in the exact same color, AND want to paint our main home to match!!💕
