Modern-Shed Is Green

Making smart decisions about materials and smart use of space has always been the primary objective for Modern-Shed from day one. Being green for us is not an abstract term but rather a natural way of working that carries through from manufacturing, to the end use of each structure and to the way we operate our corporate office.

At Modern-Shed, we look into the sources of our materials — from the framing to the interior finishes — to better understand the sensible choices that are available.

All Modern-Shed materials are designed and made under one roof. Local manufacturers are utilized to obtain all Modern-Shed materials, including doors, windows and roofing. This streamlined system is the ultimate efficient and ecological solution to prefabricated building.


Some of the standard Modern-Shed “green” features:



We provide an alternative to adding on expensive additions to the house, thus saving the waste of such an effort and eliminating those tearing apart and rebuilding phases. We offer a great option for working at home, getting rid of that work commute altogether.

Our sheds are small, efficient spaces which are well-insulated and energy conscious, taking very little energy to heat or cool.

We keep families from outgrowing their current home and having to upscale to a bigger one just to meet changing needs.

On the corporate side of the green equation: Our corporate office is a “virtual office”; Meaning we do not actually have typical office space. All of our personnel work from their homes eliminating the need for them to spend time, money, gas and time away from family on work. We are also 99% paperless where all transmission of information is electronic.
