Creative ideas for backyard retreats, detached home offices, and reinvented sheds
Once this small building was literally for the birds. It was a pigeon coop, abandoned long ago, and it was falling to the ground.
But it had some good points. It sat at the end of the lawn and screened a view of the neighbors’ yards. The family wanted a play area for the kids, so it made sense to save it.
Now there’s room to relax on a daybed with a book, draw on a chalkboard, or play at a kidsize table. Later the family may turn it into a studio, office, or guest house.
