This is our 24 x 14 foot shed being pulled up the narrow mountain road. It is paved, barely, and about the width of one good truck. The final resting place was a former potato field (1940-1950) and our little house was dropped in place with minimal damage. The house was placed on a gravel pad which we later reinforced with concrete footers and 4 x 6s.” – Caroline Stilwell
After living abroad in a handful of European locales as well as several cities in Japan, Julie saw how much of the rest of the world lives. Upon returning to the States, she moved to San Francisco and was an active member of an artist collective. About four years ago, the opportunity to move Southwards to a cherimoya, avocado and guava farm in Carpinteria, California presented itself and she went with the flow.” – Apartment Therapy

My office is so relaxing. I’m at work but it’s completely non-stressful. I can concentrate. I feel energized. I’m productive. The other night, as I sat here with a beer, I saw a shooting star zoom across. My wife is impressed. She’s thinking we need another Studio Shed office for her.” – Mike
The design of this shed features a wrap around deck that provides easy access from the sloped yard, a potting area on the side, a long overhang for shade and protection from the rain, and a large door to take in the view.” – Houzz

I am so tickled with how the project turned out!
I love reading to the boys out there in the afternoons. Something about being in a little Summer Garden House makes me feel so relaxed and peaceful.
And it’s cool to have my painted upholstered chair out there too.” – Zoe
Fitting neatly in to many gardens it offers enough space to be practical for a large number of uses. Despite it’s ample size in many cases we may even be able to install a Glide Pod in your garden without the need for planning permission.
In addition to the quality features of our other smaller pods the Glide Pod also features a sliding louvered screen.” – Glide Pod
Another backyard office space that really inspires the imagination. Learn more about the Glide Pod.
Internally there is adequate space for a desk, storage and shelving, which can even be built into the pod.
A full height window, glazed door and additional desk height window can be positioned to make the best use of the available natural light and underfloor heating along with recessed spotlights comes as standard.
Despite the smaller dimensions there is no compromise on the quality of building with furniture grade birch plywood reveals to the windows, door and skirtings, and sleek white painted walls.” – The Micro Pod
This home office is available in the UK. Great inspiration for the rest of us. See more at The Micro Pod website.
Wherein we set about to build a tiny backyard sanctuary. Art, reading, writing, music, good friends and silence.
A small shed used as a tiny backyard sanctuary and creative energy.” -Tiny House Swoon
The shed’s rectangular footprint measures 8 ft. 6 in. by 12 ft. 6 in.; a 4-ft.- 6-in.-deep porch faces the yard. Stick-framed with 2x4s, the shed is sheathed with 1×10 pine boards applied diagonally and exposed on the inside as finished walls. All 12 windows are made from recycled sash. An extrawide pull-down stair leads to a loft, which has dormers front and back. We built a bed into each dormer, with storage underneath.”
