Say goodbye to tool sheds and hello to creative and luxurious outdoor wooden dwellings. Outdoor Abodes shows homeowners that creating additional personal space does not have to mean moving to a new house or adding on an addition, but can be achieved by building or making over an outdoor structure. Whether it’s a teahouse, art studio, music room or even a guest house, Outdoor Abodes shows how to best achieve functionality in any wooden shed. The possibilities are many: this book offers the how-to, case studies, and design direction for suped-up sheds.


  • Offers both practical how-to building and decorating advice, as well as design ideas
  • Eight case studies highlight differences and similarities in custom sheds
  • Discusses options for electrical, plumbing and adjusting temperature for comfort
  • Provides information for working with commercially available shed kits and designs, as well as custom-made ideas
