Blake’s Micro Backyard Studio with Floor Planter

If you haven’t yet gone full-on tiny, a tiny backyard office is a great place to start!

Blake sent us pictures of his self-designed and built backyard studio complete with an in-floor garden. As a plant-lover, this made my day. The tiny cube was made from mostly-salvaged materials and has enough windows to let in plenty of light. All you need is a desk and a mini-fridge and it’d be the perfect spot to write a novel breathing in that fresh oxygen!

Read what Blake has to say about it below.

From Blake:

The idea was to have a minimal studio space made from recycled materials. I was able to source most materials for the project from salvage yards. The exterior is composed of a reverse board and batten cladding. The cladding was painted a deep earth tone to blend into the backyard. The interior is made of OSB walls, wood ceilings with exposed beam rafters and stained wood floors. A built in planter was incorporated into the floor to bring some foliage into the small space. The footage is a mere 85 square feet (including the 10 square feet in floor planter).

    What a great idea to have your home office in the ambiance of your back yard and to be able to enjoy Mother Nature!?????

    This is awesome! Love the design of the garden in the floor with the low windows. How I would have loved to have had my own personal space in my parents’ back yard. Way to go!
