Have you ever come home from a long day at work and not feel the peace you expected? The first thing to meet you as you came up the drive was a bicycle laying in the grass—which needed cut—and overflowing trash cans. Inside, dishes filled the sink, shoes lay strewn about the entryway, and toys decorated the living room floor. Studies show that cluttered spaces cause depression, anxiety, and lack of focus. And all of this steals our peace. “Dealing with clutter and living a more organized life,” said Nealey Stapleton, a professional organizer from northern Virginia and owner of The Organizing Boutique, “is super important for our health, both mental and physical.”
Shandon Mullet is a graphic designer in the Shenandoah Valley in Virginia. When he started working remotely, he had no space to work in their small home. He ended up working at the kitchen table. While he enjoyed being near his wife and daughter, he needed a home office free of distractions. He decided to purchase a backyard shed.
Knowing Byler Barns’ attention to detail, the Mullets considered no other manufacturer. Byler Barns had a new line of home office sheds, and Shandon loved the first one he saw. The 8×12 shed, beige with green trim, coordinates with their house. With the shed already complete, Shandon only needed to arrange for delivery.
While they looked at customization, the shed was already perfect for the Mullets’ yard. The backyard office came finished out with built-in climate control and dimmable recessed lighting.
Within a week of deciding to purchase a Byler home office, the shed was delivered and ready for work. Now Shandon’s commute is a few steps from their deck to his office door. From his desk, he can watch wildlife in a line of trees out one window. Shandon says, “I love [that] it’s filled with light with the windows on both sides.”
Besides the advantage of the short commute, he says, “Having a separate space for me to work definitely increased my productivity level.” Byler Barns offered the perfect solution, Shandon says. “If anyone needs a home office, you can’t beat the value and comfort of these buildings–and they’re so beautiful.”
