Backyard Retreat

Whether you use this little retreat for general storage, a child’s playhouse, an artist’s studio, road-side farm stand or just a quiet retreat away from the main house, this design stands out above the rest. This tiny cabin has an elegant flying “v” porch and a dramatic roof structure. The porch is perfect for enjoying a nice book on a summer day or watching wildlife scamper around. The ceiling jets up to an impressive 10′ in the back corners giving this Backyard Retreat an open feel while providing unmatched cozy character. The Backyard Retreat can be customized with a variety of upgrades including several siding and roofing options, local artisan hand-crafted glass roundels, flower boxes and weathervanes. Or try a cedar shake roof with a copper roll ridge cap to accentuate the charming woodland aesthetic.
