Cooling my she shed

Recently, I started my own business working from home providing writing and design services. We moved to a new home and didn’t have much extra space for me to have the home office that I was looking forward to. My husband wanted to build a “she” shed outside since there was plenty of open space in the yard to do so. I agreed because not only would it be nice to have a private and quiet workspace to run my business or meet with clients, it would feel like I was leaving the house to come to work. It only took him about a month to build it from start to finish and finish the electrical and smaller details. The last step was to paint and decorate my new office how I wanted. He did a wonderful job but he left out an important detail during the building process. He never took into consideration how I would be heating and cooling my newly built office. While there are many options to heat and cool a shed. I decided on a portable AC unit for hotter days and a space heater for cooler days. Since the shed is such a small space, a portable heating and cooling unit is a good choice. Since my husband included windows when he built my new office, I can use one of them to vent the portable AC out of. The portable unit is small and compact and just sits on the floor in the corner and out of the way. One the days where it is neither hot or cold, I can just open a window or two for ventilation and to enjoy a natural breeze for better comfort. Luckily, the shed is insulated pretty well, so it will retain the heating and cooling energy that my portable AC and space heater systems create. I love my “she” shed office so much. It’s nice having the best of both worlds. I can have run my own business from home, but also feel like I’m somewhere different rather than inside the house while I’m working.
