According to general sales manager Mike Probach, the final price came to between $35,000 and $40,000 for the whole assembly, including the installation of outside porch lights and motion detectors.

The Slanted roof is made of tongue-and-groove pine, which is a trademark of Modern-sheds. The beams are architectural-grade glue-laminated wood. Included is a deck and overhang for the porch.

And for the interior, we think it’s simply charming! The custom work desk was made by the installation crew. A forced air wall heater heats the studio in the winter, so it can be full-functioning all year long, while argon gas-insulated windows slow down the transmission of heat and cold, which ensures increased energy efficiency.
