Redefining The Cubicle

This tiny building was the home office of Peter Frazier which overlooks Chuckanut Bay in Bellingham, Washington. A couple of years ago it was featured on Lifehacker. Peter now works from a sailboat in Bellingham! Today this cabin is available as a vacation rental on Airbnb.com! Ironically, Peter Frazier’s story sounds almost like a mirror of my […]

Expedient Home Office

I had hoped to build something larger on a trailer so that this tiny house could also serve as a camping cabin – but after much deliberation my wife and I decided to just build something small for my home office. It will measure 5×8-feet and stay under the local 9-foot height requirement for sheds. […]

Home Office and Retreat

Update June 2013 – I never found time in 2011 or 2012 to build this home office. We did adopt Reagan and she’s now 3 1/2. A family member also ran into some health issues – so I ended up building a home office/storage room in part of the garage so I could be within […]

Mike Corvi, a Southwest Portland resident and businessman, bought the gently used empty metal shell for $2,900 and then with the help […]

Tool Shed Transformed

Chris, one of my readers, sent me these photos of a backyard tool shed his dad, Hans, built and then decided to transform into a tiny house. It’s not plumbed but it is wired and insulated. Even so but I think you’ll agree this tiny house would be a very nice little place to spend […]

8x8x8 Cube – Backyard Office Concept

Julia and I have decided last weekend to seriously consider building a tiny office for me in our backyard. I work from home full-time and use a bedroom in the house as my office. The only trouble is that when the dogs are barking, or Katie is playing loudly, it gets a little difficult to […]

A closer look at the Sonoma Shanty tiny house plans

The Sonoma Shanty is an affordable tiny house solution that came out of a collaboration between Kent Griswold and Stephen Marshall of Little House on the Trailer. This is actually one of the projects that was born from a meet-up a few of us had last year at Jay Shafer’s place in Sebastopol, California. You […]

Could This Be Shedworking HQ?

Alex at Shedworking recently left his garden shed office behind when he moved. After settling into his new place he then invited people to submit ideas and designs for his next shed. Of course this sounded like a lot of fun to me so I fired up Google Sketchup and my imagination and got to […]
