We transformed a basic outdoor shed into a modern backyard sanctuary for our clients who craved a sunlight drenched space to relax, watch the birds, and soothe the senses. The shed was as basic as it comes. We installed wiring, added drywall, flooring, paint and trim. Redwood accents were added to the exterior, and inside, reclaimed Stikwood. Striking the right balance of masculine and feminine was essential to balance the homeowners. We paired blush tones and nubby grays with rugged walls & modern accents.  A compact sofa doubles as a pull-out bed, making this an outdoor retreat, and a guest house, too. Nestled in nature, this home-away-from-home is now a cool, secluded California oasis.
