Garage Homes Take Over as the "Shouse" Gains Popularity

What exactly is it that makes for a viral home? As a real estate page, we constantly find ourselves asking this question. The answer isn't exactly so simple.

For example, on our social media pages, we routinely post homes that eclipse the $10 million mark. However, a garage home that comes in just short of $600k in Glenwood City, WI has drawn more attention than most!

For this price point, though, we find a ton of value packed into the 2 bed, 3 bath, 1,578 square foot home.

The listing agent described the home as an "upscale shouse" (shed/house) that shows like a model home.

Outside we find something that looks like it might be commercial but inside it's anything but.

The home sitting on 7.6 acres features vaulted ceilings along with an incredible kitchen

When we find our way to the owner's suite, there's a lot more to love.

It even has a rather sizable 16'x16' bath with walk-in dual showers

Perhaps the best part, though, it that the property shows off nearly 4000sf of showroom quality garage/shop to play with.

Within the shop, we find a 3/4 bathroom, carwash bay, RV hookup station, and concrete footings for those who wish to add a car lift in the future.

Just about any toy will fit with 8-12 ft overhead doors.

The property also includes additional toy storage or work space with a new detatched 36x56 heated shop complete with concrete floors and 3 overhead doors. This space includes everything needed to get busy including power and water!


Whether you're a professional or someone who takes their hobbies seriously, this home has it all!

This is why it was sold almost as fast as it was listed!
