He Shed, She Shed

A 60’s era cottage in the back yard of a family home was going unused. During its life it had served as a guest house, bachelor pad, nanny quarters, and storage space. After water damage rendered the interior dank and musty, the owners knew they had to breathe new life into it. At the same time, their teenagers, lobbying for a space of their own, laid claim to the 400 sq feet.  The challenge was to transform a dark, dated space with great potential into a light filled “He Shed, She Shed” for the kids; and for use beyond that as studio or guest quarters.
