Working from home has become a way of life for many of us. If you were suddenly thrust into conducting business from your dining table and are now itching for a space to call your own, look to a stylish tiny home for help. Work-from-home sheds have become extremely popular as they offer privacy and some much-needed distance from your other living areas.

The prefabricated sheds are manufactured by a number of companies that offer different styles and features. Many are around 100 square feet in size. This makes them large enough for a desk and some seating, so it’s time to go to work, your dedicated environment will be distraction-free. And their convenience doesn't end there; logistically, these structures aren't large enough to require a permit to build (although check your area's regulations).

Scroll down to see some options for prefabricated sheds that will improve your work from home experience. You can’t beat that commute!
