According to Wikipedia, a shed is a simple, single-story structure often used for hobbies or as a backyard workshop.

They come in various sizes and constructions, ranging from open-sided designs for bicycles to larger wood-framed structures with shingled roofs, windows, and electrical outlets.

Sheds can be found in gardens, allotments, farms, or industrial settings, and they can be constructed with metal sheathing, plastic frames, all-wood builds, or vinyl siding.

Some have wooden or plastic floors, while others are built on concrete pads. Lockable options are available to prevent theft or unwanted entry by children, animals, or wildlife.

Nowadays, modern sheds are built with so much elegance and more functionality. Pre-built sheds are now being sold, they come in many styles, and with prices ranging from $5,000 to tens of thousands of dollars.

But if you’re a little out of budget, you can always build your modern shed just like this man did.

Meet Andrew Thron.

Andrew, a University of Maryland engineering graduate, successfully earned his Bachelor of Science in 2015.

He is an avid home improvement enthusiast, he ambitiously took on a challenging project of the renovation of a rundown property and showed everyone his determination and ability to overcome various challenges.

As the founder of ATImprovements, LLC, and the “Andrew Thron Improvements” YouTube Channel, he passionately shares insights into DIY, home improvement, and real estate investment.

In 2019, Andrew participated in Season 11 of American Ninja Warrior in Baltimore, MD, showcasing his skills in shed construction more prominently than in navigating ninja obstacles.

And just a year ago, he took on another project, and that was to build his very own modern shed.

He shared a timelapse video of the complete renovation and posted it on YouTube. As of this writing, the video has already amassed over 4.6 million views.

The ‘World’s Nicest Shed!’

That’s how Thron described his personally built modern shed.

He started the project by demolishing the old shed and power washing the concrete slab underneath right after.

Then he bought all the needed materials before getting right into the actual building process

The first thing that he did was to build and frame the shed’s floor, walls, and roof.

It’s one important part of the project because it dictates the size of the other parts of the shed.

Next, he installed the shed siding, shed heating, shed trim, windows, siding veneer, roll-up door, and ramp. He also took the liberty of installing asphalt shingles on the shed’s roof, adding electricity to it, organizing the shed’s storage, and applying epoxy to the subfloor.

An inspiration to many aspiring builders.

“That was amazing! I stumbled across your video and really enjoyed it. That is absolutely the nicest shed I’ve ever seen, and I saw it being built! Thanks,” wrote one online viewer.

Another one commented, “Andrew! OMG, that’s a gorgeous shed bro! Love the detailed work you did to make it extra special inside! Great video and editing also. Thanks for the awesome content.”

However, he also puts a disclaimer on his channel by writing, “All content on the Andrew Thron Improvements YouTube channel reflects my own opinions. Please seek out guidance from professionally trained and licensed individuals before making any decisions.”

The tiny home he created is a far cry from the shed he started with.
