When you start to dedicate the bulk of your time to a particular hobby, the collection of gear and materials you accrue can quickly take over your living space. As the items pile up, you might find yourself wishing for a place to store and utilize your hobby supplies without taking up room in your home. Luckily, you can create a dedicated space for your hobby in a backyard shed structure. A shed allows you to establish a smart organizational system for your items and even create a workspace for your tasks. If you fancy yourself one of the following nine hobbyists, you may benefit from moving your hobby items and endeavors into a dedicated shed space.

Painting Interior Summerwood Products

Whether you work with acrylics, oils or watercolors, painting is equal parts messy and gratifying. To really let your creative energy flow, you must have room to manipulate your canvas and splatter your paint at will. In a dedicated shed workspace, you can really let the paint fly without worrying about the state of your surroundings.


To take your photography hobby to the next level, you must have a private space for staged photo shoots and other fun projects. You also need an easily accessible place to store your backdrops, lights and other gear, so you never miss a photo opportunity. A shed equipped with a partition will provide the room you need for continued growth in the world of photography.


“How many bikes do you need?” is the funniest question that a bicycle enthusiast is ever asked. As the number of bikes is sure to increase, so does the gear to use while riding and tools to work on them when not riding. A bicycle shed is a great place to keep everything in one place and keep it all secure. Plus this will keep the house cleaner and lets you actually park your cars in the garage.

RC Car Extraordinaire

Although RC cars are 1/10th of the size of their real counterparts, their chassis and parts can quickly dominate all of the flat surfaces in your home. Working on your RC cars in a shared space is often a nightmare as well due to the risk of losing extremely tiny parts. Switch to a shed space for your RC cars to reclaim your home’s surfaces and keep drafts, pets and family members from knocking your parts into the unknown.

Candle Maker

Candle making takes messy to the next level as the wax quickly becomes rock hard. Although candles usually smell pleasant enough, melting scented wax in bulk can leave an overpowering scent lingering in the air. Take your candle projects into a shed space to keep your home squeaky clean and free of strong odors.

Interior of Sound Studio - Summerwood Products

When the mood to compose music strikes, you cannot cork the creative energy until everyone awakens from their slumber. You must immediately let the music flow through your instruments and jot down your notes to keep the song from escaping for good. You can equip a shed with sound deadening materials to create a quiet place to compose anytime of the day or night.

Rock Hound

When you are a rock hound, the world is truly your oyster. A trip to the creek, park or forest can leave your pockets heavy with interesting rocks of all sizes. Unfortunately, storing those rocks, and the supplies needed for polishing, examining and cataloging them, can take up an ever increasing amount of room. With a shed, you can have your rocks and polish them too without worry about overwhelming your living space.


With dozens of major gaming consoles released in the last few decades, it does not take long to fill your shelves and cupboards with systems, cartridges and discs. As a resolute gamer, you may never say die when it comes to building up your collection. To keep the peace, relocate your gear to a shed and set up the ultimate gaming center for all of your favorite systems.

Card Shark

Although you can host successful card games with nary more than a card table, chairs and a deck of cards, more space means more participants. As a card shark, you build your skills up by playing as many different people as possible so take your games to a shed to draw in the crowd. With the ability to decorate a shed however you want without affecting the feng shui of your house you will soon be hosting the most successful card games on the block.
