Design Deckhouse - Dayna Beck

Client:

A female illustrator who finds her inspiration for children's books from nature and the world around her.

Location:
East coast. Her shed will be located in the wooded area behind her home.

Dimensions:
16'6" x 27'

Key Features:
*Sloped roof collects water to hydrate exterior plants.
*Entrance is located on the north side of the structure, so the sun isn't intense in the afternoon.
*Open rafter system creates visual interest as well as storage space.
*The floor to ceiling windows on the north side of the structure create a panoramic view.
*A small doggy door is located on the right side of the north wall.
*Built-in bookcase lines the south wall for supplies.
*Flooring is made from reclaimed tile.
*The blue jute rug in bubbly shapes is made from renewable resources.

Additional Notes:
*Because the shed is located in a wooded area, privacy is not an issue.

Awesome Design!
by: Kevin Estrada

I'm digging the sloped roof concept, excellent for the garden below. I really enjoy the windows, the floor to ceiling ones look as if it would let in a lot of natural light. Which makes it energy efficient, and awesome! High Five!

Good
by: DC

I like the size of the windows and the open rafter idea. Storage and a lack of clutter is important when creating. The location makes sense for the color choices.

I love the feature of the sloped roof to hydrate the plants. Plus, the doggy door.

Cheers!

The sloped roof adds visual interest. I like how the doggy door was integrated into the structure and also how the windows were large. It is a good blend of traditional and contemporary shed elements. High five for Dayna Beck.

Amazing
by: Vanessa

I Think the idea of having a doggy door is amazing and for a client that is in tune with nature that sounds perfect. I also like the slanted roof idea that also serves as a plant waterer.

green..
by: Elizabeth

I love that you have taken surrounding elements and managed to make them a center piece. A simple act like "reclaimed tile" is simple, cost efficient, and easy to do. Reusable material allow you to be creative!
Great job!
