This is a 12’x12′ backyard shed in Sarasota, Florida built by Historic Shed for an artist to use as a studio.

It has a 4′ front porch extension that are supported by beautiful brackets and it has a great choice of colors.

This backyard shed has French doors and double-hung wood windows on each side. When you go inside the roof framing is beautifully exposed which gives it a warming rustic look and feel. Please enjoy and re-share below.

In the 1950’s architect Bert Brosmith designed this small island cottage just south of where I live.

It’s only accessible by boat and is very small.

Today the core of the building is standing strong but the cantilevered decks are unstable.

So the entire cottage is in need of a renovation. It was built in 1959 after all.

Because the cottage is only accessible by boat, the costs for renovating are triple or quadruple that of if it were accessible by vehicles.

It would be sad to see this structure get destroyed because I believe it to be a rich part of our area’s history.
