Perfect for families, it has a bedroom for parents on the second floor, and the futon in the living room becomes a great spot for kids to sleep. There’s a lovely little porch where you can enjoy a cup of coffee in the morning. What do you think?

This modern backyard writer’s cabin was designed by Jarmund/Vigsnæs Architects because the client wanted a separate space to get away from the main house to focus on writing.

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!
