How would you like to have a shed in your back yard you could actually sleep in? If the idea of sleeping in your shed doesn’t sound appealing, you might want to take a better look at the picture above because we are talking about a shed that is more like a guest house, rather than a shed where you keep your yard tools and lawn mower.
They probably go by several different names such as outdoor living room, living room shed, outdoor room and others, but the concept is still the same whatever you call it. Having an out building that is more like a little guest house on your property is becoming more popular.
While gazebos and tent like garden rooms are popular, there is something inviting about having the security and comfort of a house like structure in your yard that you could spend the night in if you wanted to, without the worry of being invaded by insects, snakes, raccoons or other critters.
Of course you will pay a fairly steep price to outfit your outdoor room just like a house with drywall, electricity and depending on your climate, heat and or air conditioning. I’m sure the price would be in the thousands to tens of thousands of dollars, but on average probably around $20,000 for a decent place. But if you have the money it may just be the vacation home you’ve always wanted, but it turns out it’s right in your back yard.
