The trend of backyard sheds and offices has been growing over the past few years as more and more people are starting to recognize the advantages of having a separate little retreat close to home but far enough to feel independent, a little place where one can go to relax, read a good book or enjoy the view in a peaceful environment. Whether it’s a backyard office, a she shed or a guest house, there are many ways to make this space look stylish and cozy. Let’s have a look at this modern backyard retreat from Seattle for inspiration.
The entire backyard was renovated by Board & Vellum and the project included this chic little structure as well as the landscaping around it. The backyard now features concrete pavers, a wood deck with built-in benches and a matching fence, a hot tub and a fire pit. The shed itself is pretty cool, featuring glass walls and sliding doors, skylights and blue exterior walls. It’s small and only offers 169 square feet of space so nothing in its design is superfluous.
