When is a work shed more than just a shed? When it becomes a little piece of home in the yard, as in the case of horticulture writer Rebecca Sweet. The old work shed in her backyard was nothing more than a storage shed until she and her husband decided to turn it into her office. 

There's a lot of thought that goes into remodeling a work shed: interior, exterior, design, heating and air. For a lot of homeowners, though, it's definitely worth it!

The Sweets' work shed, passed down from Rebecca's childhood after she bought her mom's house, already came with character. Years of family and little touches had given it life, like her brother's name carved into the side and the step she walked up as a child, and it was important to her to preserve these memories.
