It started out innocently enough. We were thinking about converting one of the bedrooms in our house into a home gym. We use one bedroom to sleep in (of course), one as an office and the third bedroom as a guest room. As we talked it through we decided that we really weren't willing to give up a room in our already small house. Besides, it just wouldn't seem right to ask our house guests to sleep on a treadmill. Since we have a small house on a very large lot it made the most sense to build the gym outside our house. The idea of the #ShredShed was born, I even wrote a post about our idea for a backyard shed gym.
The shred shed is quite literally a shed in our backyard. We shopped around and found the very best deal at Lelands for a 12x22 shed. I loved that it looked more like a little house than a shed. They call it a "painted cabinette" but shred painted cabinette doesn't have the same ring as shred shed.
