It’s the time of summer when my husband start taking a look at the landscaping. It’s too hot to plant anything in the garden, so we start analyzing what we should have done in the spring and now must earn a purpose of accomplishing in the autumn — or perhaps even next weekend.
A shed/garage/barn/studio/guest home is among these items on our list. We have had two gorgeous weeks of nonstop sun, accompanied by a week . We are now back to reality and trying to think beforehand. We need somewhere to store our garden stuff, and we’ve been planning to build a shed to round out the garden layout because we moved in five years back.
That I love the way a shed, outbuilding or barn completes the landscape, providing plantings an chance to offset themselves from something.
Outbuildings can function as potting sheds, artist studios, workout studios, or simply be about storage, but make them interesting and they will continue giving back for a long time to come.
Plenty of windows with divided lights, brakets, a barn star and French doors make this one-room shed a destination place. I adore the way the ferns and sitting area are characterized by the design.

Cottage design sheds can range from state charm to craftsman cool and add so much visual attention (and operate ) to a lawn. There is something about the way plantings offset themselves from the building, and the way the roofline or an attached pergola gives vines somewhere to distribute.

An easy farmhouse-style building such as this produces a sense familiarity from the lawn.
Outbuildings may be storage sheds or childrens’ playhouses. Either way, have fun with colour and accessories.
Insert a front porch to elevate a simple shed from the purely functional to enchanting.
Hydrangeas stand out much more when planted against the side of a cute cottage.
Refined, cottage or rustic, potting sheds and barns add charm to any lawn.

The beauty of building a shed today, rather than two years from today, is that it in two years it’s going to be nestled in lush garden development.
I’ve always loved the idea of owning a studio that may double as a beachfront dining area. Triple French doors connect this indoor space to the outdoors.
Contemporary custom or prefab sheds are all of the rage and seem like a wonderful place to get away, take rest or write your book.
Garages designed as coach homes and horse barns have an Old World charm that completes a house and garden. The simple and elegant structure, with square windows, carriage style doors, board and batten siding, and a metal roof exemplify the appeal of simple substances and function.

Carriage-style doors and plantings frees this garage from practical to beautiful.

Ah, the pool home. If we could all be so blessed to have a pool, no less a pool home. This form of outbuilding grounds the spaces and provides the pool area a wonderful focus.

I love pool homes that have a design that reminds me of simple barn outbuildings. It’s like a building that was always there called out to the homeowner that this is the best place for a pool.
