Located in Sun Valley Idaho, this contemporary mountain style home is designed to take advantage of its elevated site and spectacular views.
What is a Cape Cod style shed?Modeled after the Cape Cod style house, Cape Cod sheds share many of the same characteristics. The Cape Cod shed is also reminiscent of the typical fishing shanty that has dotted the shores of New England for over 300 years.
As well as being a simple finish, board and batten siding conveniently allows for finished siding to be installed later on. The board and batten siding can also be painted with solid color stain like the building below.
The timber frame construction and barn board siding gives the interior a rustic look and a fills the building with a nice pine scent.
The building below has finely finished trim work with a significant overhang and trim detail. There was a lot of positive responses to yesterdays post on the Rough Cut Sheds and Ron emailed me back that they had a tiny house available and ready for anyone interested.
Ron says, we have a barn style for sale now that we built intending to keep it, but the property we were going to put it on did not work out. This is great, I have been looking for shed plans for a long time as I have been undecided if I should by a store built shed or build one myself.
SHED Architecture & Design created this awesome steel house with an angled roof, a corrugated facade and a modern, industrial feel befitting of this live work home. Spanish architects and landscape designers Nomad Studio have put their best foot forward in their design of Zafra-Uceda House in Aranjuez, Madrid, Spain. Like a suit of copper armor protecting the jewel inside, this Ybbsitz-area home designed by Austrian architects Kleboth Lindinger Dollnig is an architectural gem that's worth a closer look. The Nest House in Thuan An, Vietnam is the latest project from local architecture firm a21studio, named for and inspired by a bird's nest. Japanese architecture firm Tomohiro Hata Architect and Associates designed this odd shaped house in Nagoya, Japan.
There’s nothing conventional about this Chicago modern house design by Ranquist Development.


Christina Zerva Architects designed this modern passive solar house design in Nikaia, Greece. This unusual house plan by Australian architects Room11 is located on a hillside in Allens Rivulet, Tasmania, Australia. On the market for a cool $1.25 million, this luxury home for sale offers a refined sense of nature in its cool, contemporary yet down-to-earth aesthetic.
The home is broken into three pavilions arrayed to the main views of the ski mountain to the West, to the Boulder Mountains to the North and to BLM open space to the South. Just like a Cape Cod style house, these buildings follow the common Cape Cod pattern, a low, broad frame building, with a steep, perfectly pitched roof. These were low, broad buildings with a relatively steep 10 or 12 pitch roof designed to maximize loft storage and "shed" snow during the cold New England winters. This shed also has an 8 pitch roof which is less steep and does not offer as much loft space as a steeper 10 or 12 pitch roof.
Its geometric form, open concept layout and glass walls frame the stunning views of Mount Olympus. Simple forms, exposed structure and a clear plan layout led to this project being chosen by the Idaho Chapter of the American Institute of Architects for an a€?Award of Citation in Architecturea€?. It has an 8×10 storage shed for rafts, paddle boat, lawn mower and fishing stuff in back with little privacy fence. The frame and boarding is typically all rough sawn lumber, but can also be smooth or planed wood as well.
The inside should be finished in pine because it is the lightest, cheapest and most readily available wood in America. Wood siding is easy on the eyes, but even with todays finishes you will still have many years of refinishing. They are anchored tightly to their trailers and the external treatments are often chosen for their wind resistance. While most folks don’t move their tiny houses often, it can be a real benefit to have that option. A pre-built shed may or may not be sized to fit within the legal limit of a trailer, and it may not have been built with high winds in mind. So if your intention to have mobility, greater care should be taken when selecting the right pre-built shell.With all that said, pre-built sheds are an option for some future tiny homeowners. Take notes about the construction details so you can compare later since after a while they will all look the same.


The plywood (or OSB) add strength to the structure while the siding provides weather proofing. These materials can speed construction time and lower costs, but they put less material between you and the weather.Is there a layer of plywood (or OSB) decking between the roofing material and rafters?
In many sheds you’ll look up and see the exterior roofing screwed right to the rafters.
Just like adding extra layers to the walls, extra layers in a roof protect you better from the weather.Are the windows and doors good enough to use in a home? Windows and doors are expensive so if your intention is to save money, try avoiding buying a shed shell with doors and windows that you’ll have to replace later.Is any house wrap used in the walls? House wrap adds a breathable but weather resistant layer to walls and can significantly improve your home’s energy performance.Is there any roofing felt used in the roof? All sheathing, on the inside and out, should be connected to framing for fire protection and strength.Does the building have the right number of fire exists, as defined by your communities local code?
The opinions they express are their own and may or may not agree with mine – or yours. If our home were not paid for we would go that route for sure!Reply Gil Palmer saysJul 16, 2013 at 3:43 pm This is one of the best posts ever on your site.
I have read that elderly folks are buying these sheds, putting in kitchenettes, bathrooms, etc and majorly reducing their cost of living.
We live in a small 464 sq ft cabin built on site by the same company that built the shed and brought it out. We finished it, doing all the work ourselves except for the electrical rough-in and the plumbing, which included hooking to our septic system. The wall AC unit also has heat.You can find photos at the link below if you would like to see it.
Put it on 5 acres and completely finished it out myself from the 8 ft slider to the vaulted ceiling. In other words constructive critique is welcome, destructive mean-spirited judgements are not permitted.
