Five Ways You Can Make a Storage Shed Into Livable Space

Houses fill up fast. You may think you’ve got all the space you need for a moment, but the next time you look around, the great room is doubling as an office or the spare bedroom has become your spouse’s retreat. Storage sheds can help expand the amount of livable space you have, but if you’re not sure how you would use that space, here are a few suggestions:

1. Game Room

3. Tiny House
