Prefab Fridays: METROSHED
Posted By Sarah Rich On May 12, 2006 @ 6:02 am In Architecture,Prefab Housing | 6 Comments
What was once an oversized and overlooked backyard toolbox has suddenly become a desirable hang out, thanks to designs like the Modern Shed  and the recently released Metroshed . This 13′ x 8′ Metroshed pool house comes flat-packed and ready for installation next to your [real or imaginary] pool.
If your pool is more like a mirage, you can also place the Metroshed  in the yard, next to the house, or even on a rooftop. It has a cedar beam post frame, aluminum sliding doors, wood floor panels, and ventilation shutters with bug screens. They also have a number of other sizes and designs, including the Metroship.
Installation is DIY and can be done in a day. The company promises that all you need is a screw gun, a ladder and a pair of gloves, and that the shed “is laid out in such a way that the build process is intuitive.” (IKEA promised me the same thing.)
