Front Range and Habitat Partner for STEM Learning.
This year’s shed (pictured above) will retail for $5,000– a steal for the one-of-a-kind, dynamic design.
Students were given parameters for their design to ensure that it fit city code and wouldn’t require additional permitting, but they were also given creative room to customize their designs before presenting their ideas to the Habitat staff. After giving feedback, the staff chose one design to move forward with, which will be completed this month and available for purchase.
“This really is an excellent opportunity for students to get real-world experience working with clients and building to a sellable standard. Not only do they get to learn and apply construction and design skills, but the implementation of those skills will result in a positive ripple effect when Habitat sells the shed to raise funds for their work.” Jaime Hahn, Program Director.

The shed will be completed on April 30, but can be purchased ahead of time if desired. Habitat staff can arrange for a tour of the shed on campus and, if purchased before the end of the semester, it will be delivered and assembled by the students at no additional cost.
If it doesn’t sell early, the shed will be moved to the ReStore yard, awaiting its future home. At that time, transportation and assembly may become the responsibility of the buyer–so if you’re interested, don’t hesitate to inquire.
