I’m so in love with this shed it isn’t even funny.
Too bad that we don’t have the yard space for one.
Designed by M. Valdes Architects for the Family Handyman Magazine July 2007 issue. The firm’s goal was to create a well-designed, carefully detailed suburban backyard shed that could be constructed using off-the-shelf materials from a builder supply store. In order to reach a broad audience the budget was kept to a minimum. All the details of the design were developed focusing on simple, easy to communicate fabrication tasks by an amateur builder. In most cases materials were used in their original dimensions to avoid extra cuts. How brilliant is that?
The interior looks a little lacking, but after all, it is a work shed.
The corrugated sheet metal roof was built at a pitch to deflect rain to the back of the shed.
The plexi-glass transoms across the front, but tapering towards the back, allow as much natural light as possible into the space.
I’m filing this projet under “Our Next House Will Have a Bigger Yard”
Not that we plan on ever moving again.
But just in case……
