Cabin Retreat in the Burbs!

6,123 (340)

This all started when my husband wanted a metal shed for storage. I agreed, if it was put up in the far, far corner of the backyard. He wanted it to be more convenient. I wanted it to be pleasing to the eye if I was going to see it every day. We also wanted to create a space that felt like we were away “at the cabin”. So this is what we came up with. It’s still a work in progress- we will begin the other side of the yard next season.

"Great job. I like all the drought tolerant plants you have used. All the stone areas are beautiful with the plants in between. Where are you located? The shed turned out really nice."
