If you've jumped on the "she shed" bandwagon with us, but don't have a backyard structure at the ready, has your eco-friendly solution. At least that's what architect Judy Bernier had in mind when she worked with the inventor of the , Chris Sneesby, to bring his design (which is originated in the UK) to the United States.
The sustainable pods are made primarily of timber, so Bernier set up production in Maine (a.k.a. the Pine Tree State). Reclaimed flooring comes from the Penobscot River while the exterior shingles are from a local Mom and Pop shop.
The design is definitely unique — the charming, round shape looks like it would fit right in in , but the gull wing door feels a little bit like something out of Star Trek (and we kind of love the inventive result when worlds collide like this).
And, actually, the windows remind us of ship portholes.
But the interior is open to interpretation, whether you want to transform it into an office...
...or a playroom.
Each structure is handcrafted so buyers can pick out configurations based on their needs. But like most custom items, the price is steep: $32,000 to $40,000. Sigh...whether it's a red Camaro in your driveway or a one-of-a-kind garden cottage, being the talk of the neighborhood just doesn't come cheap.
