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).

    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!
