Our friends over at Historic Shed were contacted by an artist in Ormond Beach, Florida to design and build a backyard shed art studio tiny house.

It’s a 10’x14′ shed nestled perfectly in the backyard of the home built with some salvaged wood. It offers a dutch door, lots of windows, craftsman overhang, and a fun choice of colors.

How would you like to have a tiny structure like this for your art? Whether it’s a writing shed, office, or for any of your other hobbies or projects. And at 10’x14′ it might even be able to be converted into a studio efficiency too, don’t you think?

Even though the price is out of reach for most of us, I still thought you might enjoy looking at and learning about this 328 sq. ft. studio for sale in London’s Mayfair District.

It has a pretty simple floor plan. When you walk in, you’re right by the bathroom. Turn right and head towards the open living space with living room, entertainment center, storage, little dining table and bed. I think it has a classy modern/victorian style with crown molding and all. Continue walking passed this area and you’ve got your little kitchen which is modern, beautiful, and has all you need to cook a wonderful meal. Please enjoy, talk about it in the comments, and re-share below.

Our big thanks to Erik Walker for sharing this 328 sq. ft. studio with us!

I thought you might like this 429 sq. ft. studio house by José Valente. It’s a modern design that I see working well as a standalone tiny home (as shown) or even as micro apartments in a building.

But this modern tiny cabin is one-of-a-kind and located in V. N. e Gaia, Portugal. All the Comforts of Home in 429 Sq. Ft. and inside you’ll find a kitchen with full size range, sink, storage and full size refrigerator. Check out the cool compact kitchen table below too. With a well designed and thought out small space you really won’t miss any of the comforts of home.

I thought you might also like this tiny Paris apartment that was renovated using CNC milled plywood.

The design was created by Coudamy Architects then the plywood was cut using CNC machines and then put together in the house. Pretty interesting, isn’t it?

Take a look at what the apartment looks like inside and then watch the entire video tour and interview with the dweller below.

When there’s a shortage of affordable housing people are forced into creativity and the solutions that these situations help create usually turn out to be pretty amazing. Like this 387 square feet storage unit turned into a micro home by architect Karin Matz based in Stockholm.

For 30 years the unit had been used for storage. In the 1980s the previous owner had started to renovate it into an apartment but the owner became sick and unfortunately passed away. So up until recently the unit was left untouched.

Instead of completely gutting the place Matz decided that the finished product would tell the story. So she focused on renovating one key area and left the rest of the space to look as original as possible. This way in many parts of the home you can actually see how it used to look before it was a completed home.
