Build Design Backyard Workshop
As an architect it has always been a dream of mine to design and build my own house. Unfortunately the reality is a shed or workshop in my backyard is about all I can afford. I call this Build Design because I started it without really thinking through my design. It kind of evolved as I was constructing it. The built in planters were used to help soften the exterior and blend it into the surrounding limited space backyard. The workshop really serves 2 functions. I like to build furniture but have limited space. So all of my large tools are on castors so that I can move them around during a project and store them against the wall when I need the other half of the building to serve as a shed. The 4′ wide sliding door allows for large material to slide in and out of the workshop with ease and creates a larger work area when I am running wood through the table saw. I built a storage loft over part of the space which allows for lower lighting where needed but doesn’t take up all of the great volume the shed roof provides.
