RICHARDSON, TX – November 19, 2020 – In 2020, when thousands of people moved to studying and working remotely from home, Eric Benavides, a home builder and entrepreneur, envisioned a space where people could work from the convenience and safety of their backyards. He started by converting shipping containers into offices and studios, but realized the average yard called for a smaller footprint and easier accessibility. He turned to creating designs for prefab sheds with components that could be carried by hand to the backyard, and easy enough for four people to assemble in a few hours.
An Innovative Idea is Born
In March of 2020, Benavides converted his warehouse located in Richardson Innovation Quarter (Richardson IQ), in the heart of the DFW metroplex, into an assembly plant to design and manufacture prefabricated workrooms. After several prototypes, he applied for a patent to protect his unique concepts. His turnkey DIY shed kits are easy enough for most homeowners to install and include a step-by-step assembly guide and video for instructions.
Patent – Pending Design and Assembly
The Backyard Workroom shed is currently patent-pending for its innovative design features and assembly processes. From a steel foundation and an integrated roof system to pre-wired electrical and unique slide-in wall panels, his factory-made modular sheds are unique. The numbered assembly process is easy to install and satisfies the do-it-yourselfer at an affordable price. The backyard shed kits are prefabricated with streamlined efficiency, so the savings are passed directly to the consumer.
“Most prefab studio rooms are complicated, expensive, and require an expert to install,” said Benavides. “I wanted to offer a simple turnkey solution that homeowners could assemble in a few hours.”
Assembly and Delivery
The prefab shed offers three styles, four color schemes and six door colors customers can select online. The shed’s LEGO-like design is constructed from plywood and steel with innovative wall and corner panels that make assembly easy. To expand the rooms to a larger size, homeowners simply add more components. Add-on features include an additional window and deck.
Parts for the kit are pre-numbered, stacked in crates and delivered to the driveway, then hand-carried to the back yard. The DIY kit can be assembled in a few hours with the help of four people and a hand crank lift. No carpentry or electrical skills are needed. The factory-made modular sheds include finished walls and flooring, doors, windows, light fixtures, keyed lock sets and AC/heater units. The shed is pre-wired with recessed outlets and USB ports. It is powered by plugging in an extension cord.
Permits and HOAs
Backyard Workroom lets homeowners avoid the hassle of pricey renovations and city permits. Most cities in the U.S. allow sheds of less than 120 square feet to be installed without a permit. However, homeowners are advised to check with their local municipalities and HOA rules in their community.
Offices, She Sheds, and Man Caves
Shed kits are gaining in popularity for backyard offices, she sheds, and man caves. Small business owners and corporations are embracing awork/life balance as people get more accustomed to working from home. With the growing need for privacy and space, backyard workrooms are in demand.
