Our Newest Brochure is Out!

October 20, 2017

This is yet another post. Just testing out the capabilities.

Sometimes you need to have a little area where you can escape from the disaster that can be the household. However, you don’t always have to travel far to obtain that feeling. You can create a little nirvana for yourself in your own backyard.

There have been many creative people that have transformed one of our storage buildings, gazebos or screen rooms into a meditation room, workout room, or an area where they could relax and have a moment to themselves.

I personally would choose to have a portable storage building to create the ultimate “man cave” with huge leather chairs, a projector screen that would come down from the ceiling and a collection of my favorite movies to watch without interruption.

Some of you might be wondering, “How would a portable building make a good man cave?” Well, these portable storage buildings are extremely well built and can survive hurricane force winds up to 160mph. Also, they’re super easy to maintain, it takes no more than a hose to wash out debris that gathers around the outside of the building for most cases.

Aside from my perfect backyard getaway, a few friends chimed in and suggested a couple of their suggestions:

Meditation Room

It would start out with a simple gazebo in the backyard with calming and warm flowers around the exterior. I’d have a yoga mat in the middle with the windows of the gazebo fully open and shining in light. It’s very simple and perfect to help clear the mind of all stress you have. I feel anything else would be a distraction and start cluttering up your meditation space.

Workout Room

If your dream getaway is when you’re psyching yourself out for a great workout, then creating the ultimate gym in your backyard will be the ideal retreat for you. This can be as simple or complex as you want it to be, however for an ideal workspace, you’ll need to have at least a 10’ x 10’ area, which is a perfect size for one of our portable screen rooms. You’ll want to work out in a space that’s protected from the outside elements, but has some natural lighting and screen windows for fresh air.

As long as your workout space has room for a weight machine for all your different lifts and some cardio equipment, then you should be set up for a perfect getaway for you.

These are a few ideas for our portable buildings. How would you use one of our buildings to create a backyard getaway?
