This is a 400 sq. ft. two car garage that was designed to be converted into a backyard tiny cottage by designer Beth Dana.
Inside you’ll notice you have everything you need from a kitchenette to a sleeping loft and bathroom. This would make a great tiny cottage to live simply in full time but you can also use it as a guest house, mother-in-law suite, tiny house vacation rental or even a backyard office.
I love the barn doors that are in place of the garage doors which open up to the outside. Please enjoy, learn more and re-share below. Thank you!
Inside you’ll notice a split level floor plan. The first floor is the main writing space with a glass desk and bookshelves built into a timber staircase. The upper level is a great space for relaxing and reading that overlooks the main workspace below. Notice the unique zig-zag rope that acts as a barrier between the staircase and loft areas.
Can you see yourself using this tiny cabin as a full-time residence? Please enjoy, learn more and re-share below. Thank you!
Modern Tiny Writing Cabin Built in Client’s Backyard
This is the Eco Pod model by Pod Space, a British company that designs and prefabricated garden structures. You can use them as guests houses, micro homes, home offices, garden sheds, or anything else you can think of.
In this case you’ll see that this Eco Pod is designed to be used as a backyard home office because there’s a living area with a comfortable couch to relax and rejuvenate in while on the other side is the office area with desks and chairs. Although I can think of a few ways to turn this structure into a livable tiny home with a few modifications, how about you? Share your redesign ideas in the comments below. Please enjoy and re-share below. Thank you!
This tiny writer’s cabin retreat is a guest post by Greg Hughes – share yours!
Thought you might enjoy a few pictures of my friend Jeff’s recent project for his wife.
It’s not as slick as some of the purpose built tiny houses you feature but the difference is, outside of money for paint, caulk, and screws, this was almost completely free.
His wife was in need of a quiet place away from their house to do her writing. He looked into manufactured tiny houses but didn’t want to spend that much money.
He noticed an old farm outbuilding on his neighbors land and inquired about it. The neighbor told him they never used it so he could have it for free.
He rented a trailer and dragged the whole building to its new site on his land. After pressure washing, 22 tubes of caulk, paint, and a deck built out of lumber from the family barn it is ready for some creativity to happen within.
Electricity is currently supplied by a 400 foot long extension cord from the main house. The great thing about it is it is located on a remote section of their 3 acre plot and is completely out of site from the main house so his wife never knew what was being done. She has been away and family business and will get the surprise of her life when she returns in a few days.
Please enjoy and re-share below. Thank you!
Husband Surprises Wife with Tiny Writer’s Cabin Retreat
It’s called the Orchid Studio and it’s designed to function as an art and gardening space that’s separate from the main house on the property. It’s a cozy and relaxing place to read, draw, paint, meditate, nap, sew or knit. When you go inside you’ll find that there are lots of windows for natural light, a full bathroom, living area, and enough space to add a kitchen if you wanted to later on.
I had to show you this tiny and luxurious backyard office that’s for sale by Gary Wagoner who shared his 8×12 ROOST tiny house design with us recently.
He’s selling this backyard office to raise money to buy a trailer to build out his latest ROOST design. With an asking price of only $1,700 I think this is a great deal if you’re in the Kettering, Ohio area.
It can easily be used as a tiny guest cabin, hobby room, music room, man cave, a tiny writing cabin, or we can just keep calling it an office. 😀
