SEATTLE — When Kai Carroll and his wife, Emily Wang, were expecting their second child last year, they knew that they had to create more space in their cozy three-bedroom house in Ballard.
What’s more, their home only has one-and-a-half bathrooms, meaning shower schedules became de rigueur whenever they had visitors. Kai researched several companies that created pre-fab structures, but he kept returning to Modern-Shed. Meanwhile, Kai’s mother, Barbara Carroll, adds that the shed allows visitors the option of sleeping in. As the weather warms, Kai has plans for other uses for the shed — maybe as a crafts room for the kids, or as a man cave for himself.
Located in the quaint town of Port Townsend on Washington State’s Olympic Peninsula the Dwelling Shed Compound was designed by Modern-Shed founder Ryan Grey Smith.
Connected with raised inter-connected decks the compound is designed around a central courtyard complete with fire pit and benches. Oriented to the south to take advantage of all the sunlight the upper clerestory (transom) windows of the Dwelling Shed provide a significant amount of natural light. The Dwelling Shed is also designed with high ceiling and has a large number of glass windows and doors facing out to the deck and internal courtyard.
The Tool Shed or Storage shed makes a perfect place to store the tools, bikes and luggage from visiting guests.


One of the great things about all Modern-Shed designs (including the Dwelling Shed) is that they can be customized to your exact specifications. If you or someone you know is interested in a compound like this please contact Westcoast Outbuildings to discuss your Dwelling Shed project today. Typically a pre-fab Modern-Shed Kit of this size makes a perfect Tool Shed, Storage Shed, Garden Shed, Backyard Office, Guest House, Yoga Studio, Artists Studio, Cabin or Bunkie.

Constructed of high-density polyethylene (HDPE) plastic and reinforced with powder-coated steel, this attractive outdoor shed is built to weather the storms year after year. But with a young son and a daughter on the way, they realized that each child would need their own room — so there would soon be no space for either set of grandparents when they came to visit the little ones. A mix of gravels paths, bamboo, concrete stepping stones, composite wood and cedar decking offer many different textures to the look and feel.
This design gives and open and airy feeling of an extended living space even during the rainy fall and winter months in the Pacific North West.


The living room gets converted into a sleeping quarter at night and there are bunk beds for the more young at heart. You'll love that it is low maintenance, weather resistant, and best of all, no painting required! The really nice thing about the Guest Shed is it allows your visitors to be close by but not too close for comfort. No more rummaging through the house or garage - keep all your tools and garden equipment conveniently stored where you use them in the yard. It is designed with a slight indentation in each corner of the floor so that you can drill through the flooring to secure it to the foundation. Anchoring hardware depends on the type of foundation you have and is therefore not included in the shed kit. Not including the installation of the foundation, you can expect assembly of the shed itself to take 2 adults up to 8 hours.
