Lee and his family live in Mosely, Virginia, near the Swift Creek Reservoir. That location has connected his family more with the outdoors. Lee wanted to add a portable building as a backyard retreat beside their fire pit, making another way to connect with the outdoors and to bring their family and friends together.
Lee liked the customizable options of the sheds at Ulrich. When he ordered the shed, he modified the location of windows and doors to fit their yard better. He designed the building so they could watch TV from outside the shed.
The location Lee wanted for his backyard retreat among the trees was a tight one, but the experienced Ulrich delivery team set it down in just the right spot. While the building has added value to their lives as they make memories, Lee also knows the investment in their family cave has added to the value of their property.
The backyard shed was delivered as an unfinished shell. Lee wanted it to feel like an extension of their home, so he added electricity and finished the walls with wide shiplap in varied stains. He installed a small fridge and a TV. He connected the building to the internet so the family can snuggle on the couch and enjoy movies and sports together.
As they enjoy s’mores around the campfire at their backyard retreat, neighbors join the family. With outings and travel restricted by COVID-19, Lee’s backyard retreat has become a special place for the family to go without actually leaving home.
