On Treehugger I just spotted this wonderful Modern-Shed, which has got to be the most affordable pre-fab dwelling in existance. Please note that gratuitous links to your site are viewed as spam and may result in removed comments.
Honestly, I find the term "man cave" sort of irritating despite being guilty of using it often enough. Instead of a she shed, I'd love a space where I could DIY and make a complete mess without having to worry about destroying my house while being inviting and well lit.

The “Shed for Living,” designed by Manchester England based FKDA Architects, provides all the necessary amenities for living in a compact unit.
Constructed of FSC certified timber-framed walls, double paned windows, cellulose fibre insulation from 100% recycled newspaper and interior finishes with low VOC content. Exterior cladding and roofing options include; timber, corten steel, fibre cement, rubber, aluminum or zinc.
The little sheds are not only super efficient and capable of being zero energy, but practical and stylish too.
Complete with a wood stove one of these sheds could easily be placed in a back yard to act as guest space, an office, or even as a rental unit, providing much-needed space for affordable housing. Small housing units like this could provide rental income and a fantastic sustainable addition to a home.
Living small, living green and living within our means just makes sense in today’s unpredictable economy. If you or someone you know is considering Shed Living or a Tiny House project please contact Westcoast Outbuildings.
These days, garden sheds have evolved from simple storage overflow solutions to outdoor showpieces. Sheds now serve as private office space, secluded getaways and they are becoming increasingly popular as man caves. This evolution is made entirely possible by companies who specialize in creating prefabricated sheds with windows, doors, and sleek contemporary design. Of course, even the coolest modern sheds are home to gardening tools but if you’re been craving another room in your house, a shed just might be the answer. In order to avoid an unfinished or rustic framed look on the inside (that is also difficult to keep clean), you’ll need to make sure the inside has finished walls or drywall. Steel or galvanized aluminum sheds are weather resistant and extremely cost effective, starting around $400 at big retailers.
However, they’re not quite as sturdy or heavy as wood sheds and may need to be anchored to the ground if you live in a high wind area, for example.
Resin sheds are quickly becoming a popular choice because they are lighter, stronger and can be more durable than even wood sheds. Hire a draftsman (there’s no need to splurge on an architect unless your space is uber sophisticated) to draw up the shed of your dreams.
A retailer like Home Depot offers simple prefabricated she designs that you can customize online, order, have delivered and even have assembled quickly—usually it takes about a day or so to put them together and you might be surprised by the amount of detail these sheds have. However, high-end prefabricated sheds provide a ton of flexibility in the event you decide to change the intention of your shed. Usually, prefabricated sheds have floors that enable them to be installed on pavers, concrete or uneven ground. A variety of DIY shed plans can be found online for handy folks comfortable framing a shed from scratch.
Because sheds tend to have drier air than inside the rest of your home, they are excellent places to dry flowers and herbs. If you love vintage or another style that you can’t pull off inside the home, why not use it inside your shed.

Note: These ranges are simply Ball-Park Figures and can vary up or down depending on many factors. We got quotes from several companies for 2 small patios, a curving path and a stacked wall. This is a great pleasure to write a review for this exceptional company!We were looking for contractors to do our backyard from scratch.

Can you give me a "Ball-Park Estimate," in regards to how much a Paving Stone Driveway Installation might cost?
After a week of rain, snow, hail AND glorious sun in the NW in this first week of spring, I’m pretty much ready for gardening weather. I’m planning on bringing in some gravel for a little pathway through the yard and creating some garden beds to fill with evergreens and creeping plants. There is something so rewarding about working on a little patch of ground and turning it in to a pretty garden, don’t you think? To get us in the mood for spring gardening, I had my daughter Courtney put together a collage (above) of some favorite spring gardening items. Since it may be a little early perhaps for some of us to actually go outside and garden, maybe you’d like a little inspiration for bringing nature into your home decor or spring fashion to your closet?
Whether you are planning to be inside or outside, I hope you have the perfect spring-like weather for your weekend!
This weekend will be rainy, so it’s time to catch up on all those unfinished projects.
Speaking of gardening, this weekend- girls trip to Houston for the Garden Conservancy Open Days Garden tour. Melissa, I actually wish I could stay home and paint this weekend, but as an owner of a boutique flower shop I almost always have to work on Saturdays. Sunny California is supposed to have rain this weekend, but at this very moment all windows and doors are open and fans are circulating nice fresh air.
I love little gardens as they can be gems without spending a fortune or hours and hours of work.

PA_Bound, cant wait to see some of your pics.i didnt post it before because its in the videos, but my wife reminded my that not everyone likes vids so heres a shot of the front.
Mine does not have that either, im told because of that, the spray foam is the best choice.
Well I made it to the cabin again , I was there for a day and a half but only got about 10 - 12 hours of work done.It doesnt look alot different from my last report but ill post what I got. You can see more photos of it on Flickr, read the complete story on Shedblog and Shedworking. Additionally, the unit is heated with underfloor radiant heating and can be powered by optional a solar photovoltaic and hot water heating systems. We’d love to help with all your design, planning, fabrications, delivery and installation needs. Adding prefabricated square footage is much easier and less expensive than adding on to your house. Think about everything that you’ll need to store inside the shed and plan for even more space.
Wood can be painted or stained any color and dressed up with a variety of trims, accessories and you name it.
Another upshot to wood is that you can hang cabinets and fixtures inside the shed wherever you like.
They are typically more attractive than metal sheds with faux wood trim and a more house-like appearance. You also can’t hang too many heavy things from the walls or ceiling or else it will collapse. This might be in order if you’re looking to match the look of your home or create a unique look. If the thought of buying something cookie-cutter causes you to shiver, we’re here to tell you that these sheds are so awesome that they can be the focal point of your yard. Fortunately, many of these plans have tips for keeping costs down like using composite instead of wood for trim and the like.

There may be additional discounts which your design consultant can review with you upon your Free At-Home Estimate. Install-It-Direct was not only the most inexpensive, but also seemed to be the most honest. This company took our immediate attention after reading all-5-star reviews on the Internet.We completed their free estimate form online and, what a surprise, Tom called in two minutes, even before we closed the webpage! They went with a Brand Named Company for the back Patio and went with Install-It-Direct for the driveway.

The only difference between the two projects was that the homeowner saved a lot of money the second go around by educating himself and selecting Install It Direct to complete his project. My goal at some point later this spring is to begin work on my very tiny front yard which is currently basically a muddy patch of soil.
I wanted to take a picture of it but there was a crowd around it trying to do the same thing :-) LOVELY!!
I have 0 skills in building but after reading as much as I have think I would be able to pull it off.Just something about the idea of building it myself from the ground up.
It is super nice, but you have got to (where I am from in Texas) line the inside with Radiant barrier to help block the heat. Nice work.As another inexperienced builder, what resources do you recommend for getting up to speed?
Even the most funtional,overlooked and neglected structures ofthe residential landscape are now getting the overdue attention they deserve. Familiar and approachable by anyone, any well concieved and executed structure can be "a man's castle". If you are asking a question, please be sure to type in your email address so I can respond directly to you.
Others may require that the shed be placed a certain distance away from the property line or other structures.
Most homeowners wind up wishing they had  purchased or built a larger shed because they didn’t plan the space well.
Cost is more than metal but less than wood but the interior is often finished and easy to keep clean.
Keep in mind, similar to prefabricated sheds, several people might be needed to finish the roof. Jeff was our designer and he did a prefect job, suggesting best choices for our small yard and taking our wishes into account, so it turned out exactly what we needed.Ron was friendly and easy to deal with. I saw the same crew working on both projects, and noticed that they had different shirts on the second time around.
He also ended up with a much better design, as all of our consultants are Professional Designers as opposed to "Salespeople" looking for a BIG commission check. This particular sealer locks in the joints to help prevent weeds or any other growth from occurring between the pavers. I snapped that pic this week while strolling through one of my favorite little garden shops, Ravenna Gardens at University Village in Seattle. I’ve tried and tried and have now blissfully surrendered to the fact that I kill plants.
I am going to go to the garden center and get some plants to spruce up my porch planters, I can do that even in the rain, Happy Spring Weekend to you! In the Summer, it is like an over, with insulation, and it holds all the heat it can till the sun goes down.
There is a builder here that does sheds and buildings exactly like this and I had to been hinting to my husband that this could work for us.
Ran some 8 guage wire (and some more 12 guage lines) under the cabin this time to save my poor walls some abuse.
As FLW was so fond of reminding us, "should be as inspiring as any canyon or cathedral." And this simple shed meets that standard. In other words constructive critique is welcome, destructive mean-spirited judgements are not permitted. The time it takes to have your shed delivered is about five weeks and assembly is more labor-intensive. Their crew arrived on time, worked hard, and completed the entire project ahead of schedule and to our satisfaction.
Shop around your area , you may just find that many builders make the same design cabin and not all at the same price.. We love how our backyard looks like now!Their prices are very competitive and they give you good discounts.We highly recommend INSTALL- IT- DIRECT!
