Reasons to Invest

Outdoor Office has experienced an average 350% increase in YoY revenue since 2019. In 2022 alone, we exceeded our annual 2021 sales.
Outdoor Office supplies space 90% faster than traditional construction methods, and is one of the only solutions of its kind that doesn’t require special permitting, land use reviews, local governmental involvement, or lengthy planning. Our services are all-inclusive, meaning no coordinating with multiple contractors - plus no hidden fees or surprise backend costs.
Since 2019, the percentage of the U.S. workforce working from home jumped from 6% to 35%. The normalization of remote and hybrid work is expected to continue, increasing the demand for traditional office alternatives.*

Building At-Home Office Units, At a Fraction of the Cost

Since the start of the pandemic, the way we work has changed, which in turn has changed our need for space beyond the office. Outdoor Office meets the urgent demand for distraction-free, at-home work space by providing an alternative to traditional construction at a fraction of the typical cost



Our fully finished units bridge the gap between sheds, ADUs, and home remodels while offering high-touch, all-inclusive service and extensive customization options. By providing a standalone unit with everything but plumbing, we can build studios and home offices for one-third the cost and 90% faster than conventional renovations. What’s most important is our commitment to building personal relationships with every customer, allowing us to optimize for their specific needs and ensure they receive the best possible experience. 


Since starting as a side project in 2018, we’ve spent no money on marketing and have operated until now entirely on cash, with no outstanding loans or debts. Our sales have grown an average of 472% YoY in the first three full years of business and we are already planning to expand into new regions and markets from our home base in Portland, Oregon. We believe Outdoor Office is more ready than ever to seize this enormous opportunity & bring functional workspace units to people across the country.



The Problem


Most Remote Workers Don’t Have a Private Home Office

In 2018, CEO & Founder Anthony Taylor-Weber was crouched every day over the kitchen table, working from home with his family of four. If you share a living space with family members, roommates, or pets, you know all too well the distractions that come with working from home and the challenge of finding a quiet spot to focus or take calls. 


Seeking to create a separate space of his own, Anthony, a home inspector by trade, began doing his own research—but found that beyond storage sheds, house expansions, remodels, and ADUs, there weren’t many viable avenues. The options that did exist required extensive planning, unwieldy costs, or at least nine months of on-site work. And thus—Outdoor Office was born. 



Less than two years later, the COVID-19 pandemic would completely upend the way we live and work, forcing tens of millions of Americans to work from home, and further supercharging the need for affordable, home office alternatives.

The Solution


An All-Inclusive, Customizable Alternative to Traditional Construction

When Anthony was able to build his own outdoor office in just six weeks and for one-third the cost of traditional quotes, he quickly realized he’d hit upon a unique opportunity. Today, the Outdoor Office team can’t keep up with the overflow of demand, with a growing number of clients looking to build their own customized units.


Personal relationships remain core to what we do, and we hear the same two things from our customers over and over again - they chose us because we’re all-inclusive and because we’re available to meet one-on-one. As we scale, we’re committed to remaining true to these values and quality of service.



We’re quick to educate customers on what we offer and what we do not. Our units are not ADUs—which are intended for daily living, require plumbing, and have their own address. We’re also not “tiny homes,” which are mobile living units that require road permits. Neither are we sheds or “she-sheds,” which are converted storage sheds built for yard equipment. Rather, an Outdoor Office is a fully finished space without the plumbing feature, designed to provide everything required for a comfortable work space. This key difference allows us the freedom to build our units without structural planning, city permits and submittals, long timeframes, and critically—at much lower costs.



Outdoor Office oversees every step of the process from end-to-end. We use some of the highest-rated and longest-lasting materials on the market, and just two hours after delivery, the units are ready for use. Our units start around $28K and average around $40K, with a profit margin of 20–28%. As we grow, we'd like to reduce operating and material costs by 10-20%, making our product more affordable while maximizing profits.


One of our most recent successes has been our online builder tool, which gives potential clients the opportunity to design their custom space on a computer, phone, or tablet. With live 3D capabilities, users are able to see the project and what it would look like in their space, and by Q2 of 2023, we expect to have full interior visual options with build-outs and walk-thru technology. In Q1 2022 alone, this tool has helped us increase quotes by 119% when compared to all of 2021.


The Market


At the Intersection of Remote Work and Real Estate

The market for our product is greater today than ever before, thanks to the seismic shift towards remote-friendly work. Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, roughly 6% of the workforce worked from home. Today, studies show that now roughly 35%over 60 million people—expect to permanently work from home or follow a hybrid model, a trend that will continue with accelerated growth in the tech and IT sectors. (source)


On top of that, the real estate market is booming and homeowners are looking to maximize value and ROI, and more states, such as California, are allowing accessory building on private property, adding billions of dollars to our potential market


(source)


The home office market is increasing at a record pace and is set to crest over $80B in spending over the next decade. In addition to home offices, we see major opportunities in other market segments, such as helping local governments manage the homelessness crisis by setting up hubs to create a centralized and safe living community, and working directly with real estate brokers and agents to help investors and homeowners generate secondary income or property value. 


Outdoor Office is also seeking to develop relationships with corporate partners to create specific units that align with company branding and capabilities specific to each organization. This will allow for large corporate companies to reduce building and operational expenses, while retaining and attracting new talent. These conditions present what feels like a prime moment for Outdoor Office to expand into a national brand


Within this scattered market, Outdoor Office offers an unmatched, all-inclusive package that combines quality, speed, and convenience with customization and quality.

Our Traction


$2M+ in Lifetime Sales, Zero Marketing Spend

Outdoor Office has achieved incredible growth since beginning in 2018 as a small side project. Since 2019, we’ve witnessed a 350% average increase in YoY revenue, 472% average YoY sales growth, and in Q1 of 2022 alone, we exceeded our entire annual 2021 sales.


We’ve experienced an increased interest in the Portland-Metro area, plus we’ve been contacted by dozens of business owners who want to franchise the brand in other parts of the US. 


(source)


We’re now one of the fastest-growing businesses in Oregon, despite spending zero dollars on marketing or advertising. In 2020, we opened our first warehouse, and by the following year, we had to upgrade to a new facility 5x the size in order to implement an assembly line approach to meet current demand.


More recently, we were featured on the YouTube channel UpFlip, garnering over 280K views and further extending our reach.

Why Invest


A Growing Company & Innovative Idea, Powered by Authenticity

At Outdoor Office, we are outfitting people with more space, new freedoms, and a more flexible lifestyle, and we’ve only just begun to tap into the incredible demand. 


Our north star remains providing a high-quality experience for every single customer, something we’ve been deeply committed to since day one. And as more and more people are seeking a means to expand their at-home workspace, Outdoor Office is excited by the huge potential for growth ahead of us.  


We’re now streamlining the process to bring our services to customers, with a goal of building and installing 250 units per year out of each regional hub, and an additional 50-75 units per year out of each new local location. Funds from this raise will be used to expand production even further, increase staff, deploy targeted marketing, and improve our digital presence. 


Outdoor Office is ready to optimize and elevate the way we live and work, and we can’t wait to expand what we offer across the US. We hope you’ll join us on this ride by investing in Outdoor Office today.

THANK YOU FOR JOINING OUR TEAM AND OUR MISSION

10 hours ago

As we start a new work week, we want to say HELLO and THANK YOU  to everyone who has joined our team over the last couple weeks! We genuinely appreciate each and every one of you. Our mission from day one, was to provide a functional space that our clients could use and do more, without losing their home to their job. If you are sitting at a kitchen table, bedroom, basement, or even a coffee shop, you know what we're talking about. But during this process,  we found that our clients were able to spend MORE time with their families, loved ones, plus find new hobbies and develop new passions away from work. Honestly, this was an amazing side effect we hadn't predicted when we started the company in 2018 when we knew that the market for at home work was growing. But when our world changed in 2020 due to the pandemic, Outdoor Office became a sanctuary for the new "work from home" life. 

While many of you may still be thinking about investing, or possibly even becoming a client, we just want you to know how grateful we are as a business for you! From our family to yours, welcome to what we believe is a business and market that is just getting started. Go out there and share this campaign with family, friends, co-workers, or anyone you can think of who may want to join the crew. We want to make sure everyone gets a chance to be a part of the family early so we can all grow together!

Cheers
