Although the homeowners initially thought the decaying shed in their new home’s backyard was destined for the dump, a closer look revealed it might have potential.

Modern Prefab Shed
With such distinctive design, it's hard to imagine that this guesthouse had a former life sheltering tools and lawn equipment. The structure gets much of its wow factor from a striking exterior element, the redwood-clad wall that bisects the façade on a diagonal while also separating the interior rooms.
Another prefab on our list, this shed breaks the manufactured mold to offer a rustic rather than a modern look. An abundance of windows makes it especially appropriate as a greenhouse or garden retreat. If used as a guesthouse, it's best reserved for those who like to wake up with the sun.
