SteelMaster Customer Transforms S-Model Shed into Backyard Gym

Share on social

SteelMaster customer Julie S. always dreamed of having her very own backyard gym on her property in Jensen Beach, Florida that she could use as her fitness and yoga shed.

After researching the best sheds for home gyms, she stumbled upon a Quonset hut in a Facebook group and was drawn to their design, military history, and practicality. Another draw to the Quonset hut was their open interior and high ceilings, which she knew would be perfect for her fitness routines.

After a quick internet search, she was led to SteelMaster where she discussed her backyard gym ideas with National Sales Representative, Zach Monds.

“I had a lot of questions, which Zach answered. He gave me a lot of information which was extremely helpful,” explained Julie. With Zach’s help, she settled on a S-Model 10×10 for her she-shed yoga studio.

Building a Prefab Gym Building

Working part time on the project, Julie’s husband and her two teenage sons assembled the shed gym in only one month!

Julie’s husband began by building a wooden slab for the foundation, which he anchored the base connector to for added protection against hurricanes.

Julie added, “The hurricane resistance was another huge benefit to the Quonset hut. They are so much stronger than a traditional shed.”

All SteelMaster buildings are engineered with commercial grade steel, which make them resistant to winds up to 190 MPH. Additionally, they are High Velocity Hurricane Zone (HVHZ) certified and Florida Product Approved, which gives our customers that live in hurricane regions peace of mind that their buildings are built to last.

Customizing a Backyard Yoga Studio

In addition to the ease of construction, another added benefit is the flexibility of customization. Julie was able to transform the structure into her dream backyard gym.

She painted the interior and exterior, and even added electricity. Now, she has the added comfort of a window AC unit, fans, and even a TV to enjoy during her workouts.

Additionally, she utilized the bolts inside to hang her yoga swing and other equipment from!

Overall, Julie states that she had a great experience with SteelMaster, from working with Zach, to the ease of delivery and assembly. She marveled at the versatility and the sound investment of her shed gym.

“We had a great experience. I recommend SteelMaster over traditional sheds, especially because these are so much more versatile. If we decide to use the building for something else one day – we have the flexibility to do it.”
