Not a greenhouse... but: This former garden shed was converted into an eye-catching art studio by encasing it in an ivy-covered framework.

Sooo.....I'd be OK if we did something like this as well...we could put the shed over by the honeysuckle? The garden shed was converted into an eye-catching art studio by encasing it in an ivy-covered framework.

   THIS IS THE KINDA STUFF I'M LOOKING FOR! Love this- and I'm in search of more rustic, fun, less refined/stiff tiny houses, forts, tree houses, playhouses, and more (ones you built, or photographed yourself) for an upcoming, in-the-works, book on the very same subject. kidcedar at gmail dot com, if you're down. File Under: Zoinks! Check out this cool little tiny house/escape in the trees. This micro cabin in the woods, was built and designed by Peter Bahouth. The photos are actually from a network of tree huts Peter has. Peter was the former executive director for Greenpeace USA, and is the current director of The US Climate Action Network.      This tree house uses a good deal of recycled materials, including 100-year-old windows taken from a Masonic Temple. The structures are also built so as to inflict minimal harm and damage to the trees that support them (always a great idea). This treehouse was also recently featured in the book "My Cool Shed" by Jane Field-Lewis- definitely worth a look- some great photos within! I've linked it below.   -Derek "Deek" Diedricksen

20 favorite garden cottages & sheds

Back in 2008 I posted about this quaint little greenhouse (love shack as I dubbed it); little did I know at the time I would visit it or know the person who owned it and the photographer who photographed it. It's funny how life goes. This adorable and might I say well-styled building is owned by our contributer Heather Cameron on her blueberry farm, Missing Goat and is the inspiration today for my post on backyard sheds. (The above photo was photographed by our other contributer, the talented, Janis Nicolay). I keep dreaming of a backyard getaway (as many of you know), and I found a bit of a goldmine over at Sunset that will hopefully inspire. Backyard office of Martha Mendoza (a tiny home office, housed in a converted potting shed) in Santa Cruz, California. Read more here. Dave and Terry Maczuga of Bellingham, Washington (not too far away from here) devised a trail system through their landscape that leads to their airy glass-and-wood shelter tucked among conifers. (Photo by William P. Wright). A cedar garden shed in Seattle, Washington, used for an actual shed that keeps tools and garden machinery safe, dry, and out of the garage and basement. (Photo by Norm Plate). Desperate for a bathtub, homeowner Kathryn Allen converted a backyard shed into a bath house. Take a look inside. (Photo by Lisa Romerein). This cozy looking fairytale cabin is actually a eco-friendly garden shed on Decatur Island in Washington’s San Juans. Gail and Mark Dupar start seedlings, arrange flowers, raise tomatoes, store tools, and dry freshly harvested shallots on the warm brick floor. Click here to see the interior. And lastly, Sunset's prefab they partnered with San Francisco-based prefab firm Modern Cabana to create a guest suite and home office that functions seperately from the home.

A summer house is a single-storey house that only takes up a small portion of your yard, but can be used as a playroom for your kids, a home cinema, a garden shed, or even a gym. Description from I searched for this on

Posh garden shed - what a great guest house! Michigan winters would be hard. Doesn't look like much room for insulation!

Backyard Studio

Here is a little friday eye candy for all of you who have ever thought about building a little shed behind your house. This north London shed was designed by Turner Castle in collaboration with Ullmayer Sylvester Architects. The home owners needed some additional space for their expanding family, but instead of adding on to their house, they decided to build a small building in the back yard. The shed is built on a steel frame, and is wood clad. It functions as a art studio, playroom, tool shed, and kitchen. I love the way it floats over the gravel. Continue reading for more pics.... Via shedworking Update (3/26/08) I received the following email from We are writing to advise you that Ullmayer Sylvester are the sole designers/architects of the summerhouse in Hackney. Turner Castle were appointed as CONTRACTORS. They had no design responsibility. This is a serious copyright issue and we would like you to amend your article within the next seven days. Consider yourselves informed.

Guest post by Lily Ellis of Birch + Bird  Style at Home. Photo by Michael Dube. We've been enjoying days filled with glorious sunshine and warmth since last weekend, something that I could get very used to! Patio season seems to be officially here (fingers crossed, anyway!) and it's time to start adding some personality to our freshly stained deck. While we're not all lucky enough to have a screened-in porch or covered patio, it doesn't take much to make your outdoor space feel like an extension of your indoor living space...some pillows, an area rug and colourful accents can all work wonders!  Poteet Architects  Better Homes & Gardens Photo by Roger Davies via Desire to Inspire Kevin O'Shea for Design*Sponge Thankfully, there is now a large variety of weather-proof outdoor furniture and decor elements available, many of which are made from recycled materials. We've come a long way from the aluminum and mesh folding chairs that I grew up with! Vintage and wicker pieces are also great options, as long as they're kept somewhat dry and under cover. Annie of Sun and Glory via  Apartment Therapy  Red Online Country Living. Photo by Dana Gallagher. Stylizimo Whether your outdoor space is a tiny urban balcony or a large covered deck on the outskirts of town, it doesn't need to be an expensive task to extend your living space outside. Use what you already have, scour thrift shops or snoop through your Dad's garden'll be surprised at what you may find to create the perfect outdoor room! *** Lily co-writes with Rachel over at Birch + Bird.  Together they organize local handmade + vintage markets and run a small Etsy shop.  Scout Vintage Market will take place May 25th-26th, 2012 in Abbotsford, BC.

Last weekend, we spent some time unwinding with our friends The Volks in Wimberley at our family's River House for a few days.   Just leaving the Austin city limits for the Texas hill country is a relaxing drive.  We didn't grab a lot of photos, which is a sign of a good trip ;), but here are a few:  {Me & Meredith chatting and having a little R&R on the swing enjoying the day} Things were a little different than the last time we had some River House time with the Volks.  My kids, Iris and Sam are 5 and 3.  Their kiddos, Noah and Max are 3 1/2 and 9 months old.  Our last trip was March 2009, three years ago, and it looked like this:  {Iris - 2 1/2, Mike, me, and Sam 3 months old}  {Me and my little man.  This photo melts my heart.  I know, I'm a weepy mom!}  {Kurt and his little man, Noah, 9 months old. Noah is the same age here as Max is this trip!} And here we all are on the River House screened in porch, enjoying the day and our babies.    I pretty much make over the River House a million times in my mind every time we are there.  I would keep all the kitch fun elements that make it the rustic retreat it is while creating an updated, casual modern day River House. The porch is pretty amazing just for the view of the trees peaking up from the Blanco River and cliffs below.  Most things have been there since um, 1975 when I was one and the River House was "born" including a single day bed which gets a lot of grown men naps, old tackle, fishing poles and random gear and a heap of inner tubes.   {image via The Design Traveler} I love everything about this bedroom porch.  What a dream to wake up there.  It's simple and the gas stove with built in log bin and tree planter are exactly what keeps it rustic and modern.  This is really kind of my dream for the River House. {Scott Newkirk's house in Sullivan County, NY} Simple, relaxing and fun.  I like the middle bench which turns the beds into couches and becomes a great coffee table.  The slatted bench doesn't add weight to the room and keeps the focus on the wilderness around.  {image from Poteet Architects San Antonio, TX} I loved this screened porch addition and the fact that it has it's own little porch.  The simple design, fun lighting (indoor and outside bulbs) and landscaping are exactly what I would love to see for the River House.   {design by Ken Fulk, House Beautiful} Another possibility, moving the indoors outdoors to create a dining room on the porch would be dreamy too.  Our reunions always consist of people getting their plates and taking a chair out to the patio to eat so, why not provide a great dining area to start?  Love the mismatched rustic, and modern elements of this porch dining area. Do you fancy any of these?  I'd love to hear your ideas of the perfect vacation screened in porch design.  I know we could ALL use a big dose of relaxation and how fun to incorporate it into the spaces we have.  Have a great weekend and RELAX!

If you want to build a wooden garden shed the best way gardensheds and until you know what you want choosing one can be difficult.

There are numerous types of The First Step If you want to build a wooden garden shed the best way to do it is to have the right shed plans. There are numerous types of garden sheds and until you know what you want choosing one can be difficult. It is also important to find garden plans which are easy to follow. Newbie DIY builders may want to build with wood mainly because it is easier. Also finding the required tools and learning the techniques described in the plans is easier when working with wood. There are a number of things you should consider prior to starting your search for good garden shed plans. Things like space, building regulations, the usage of the shed etc., are all important things to consider. Once you have decided the size of the shed and its use the next step is to decide upon the type of shed you want to build. Building Difficulty Level The Lean To Shed is the easiest to build. You can also attach the shed to an existing structure like your home or it can be free standing. For a beginner this is the perfect shed to build but it is not often the best option if you want to store large personal items like your car. If you want the shed to be converted into a workshop you’ll need to construct something a bit more complex like a Gable shed. Look and Personality The look of your shed is very important. It should if anything compliment the style and personality of your home. So chose a wooden shed plan which appears to match the style of your home. If you’re purchasing plans make sure to take a look at a few pictures to make sure that it’s something you want. Don’t purchase a shed plans that do not give you a full view of how the finished product will look. Purchase From a Reputed Source If you search the internet there are probably hundreds of garden plans being sold. Just the sheer number can be confusing. This is why it is recommended that you only limit your search to reputed builders. People who have experience delivering good and easy to understand plans. Keep Your Budget In Mind Purchasing them are not too expensive. However, it is the actual building which can end up costing you a few thousand dollars. If you’re on a tight budget it is a good idea to build with wood. Keeping the design as simple as possible will also help save money. Some have estimates printed on them which can be helpful. Think about ways to cut shed building cost to keep the project within your budget.
