About Us

...what we wanted…

We wanted something unique. Something that reflected our tastes. We wanted something that was comfortable - a place to relax and enjoy - right in our backyard oasis...and we DID NOT want a DIY. So where’d that leave us…

Our choices were to buy an ugly, plastic shed from a Big Box store and make do, order a nicer DIY kit from a national shed firm, or call a contractor and an interior decorator. None of these choices were close to turnkey and all involved long hours of decision making, assembly print interpretation and frustration. We either had to do, manage or coordinate the project to get close to what we wanted.

We created Choza to keep you from having to live through these arduous, painstaking, time consuming process. Not only do we save you time and money, we give you a luxurious space that you, your family and friends can enjoy for years to come.

Oh, yeah…almost forgot…how’d we select the name? Why Choza? Well, Choza has different meanings, depending on the language. In Spanish, it means hut or shed and in Japanese, it is a type of stretching.

We want our team to stretch and grow and we challenge the entire Choza Crew to continuously get better at bringing you the personalized relaxation space of your dreams…that you won’t lose sleep over planning, building, fussing, anticipating, waiting and coordinating…
