Hobby Shops and Recreational Buildings Popping Up All Over


(NAPSI)—If you’re like many homeowners seeking to enhance your property and support your lifestyle interests, adding a freestanding hobby shop, vehicle storage building or recreational facility can be a great idea.

For hobby enthusiasts, projects range from a small garage to an elaborate workshop to support a wide range of interests, such as woodworking, classic car restoration, various collections or simply for storage of equipment and tools, said Andy Brown, Morton Buildings suburban product line manager. Also popular are man caves and she sheds, which offer a place to get away to relax and unwind, enjoy hobbies and spend time with friends.

“Our customers have used their Morton buildings for such diverse interests as an art studio, a family game room, a space for music and instruments, doing meditation and yoga, brewing beer and exercising,” Brown noted. “Some couples split the space in their hobby building so they each have separate areas for their own interests.”

Many owners of boats, RVs and other recreational vehicles, such as motorcycles and ATVs, he added, want an attractive, well-designed storage facility to protect and enhance the enjoyment of those assets. Many of these vehicle storage facilities also have amenities, such as an office, kitchenette, lounge, bathroom and space for hobbies. 

“Homeowners want a building that will not only support their hobby and recreational needs, but is also stylish and can be customized to complement the existing structures on the property with design features such as brick and stone, cupolas and porches,” he said.
