No matter how comfortable our house is, we all crave for at least one more room. You might need it when your best friend comes to town, or you need a place to work in silence, to relax, read, or work.
Well, you can now have it all in one place- in your backyard! If you have a friend willing to help, in about 8 hours, you two will make a “garden house”!
According to Amazon, the new DIY is “the ideal home office or guest house” and it can easily be converted into a pool house, studio, a home office, or a guest house.
Moreover, it has an outdoor deck that can fit two chairs and even a grill!
On the website, the company explains:
“The Solvalla garden house kit is made from high quality solid Nordic wood. This timeless design is an alternative to classic log cabin styled structures. It works well in a variety of surroundings and can be a guesthouse, home office, granny flat, or even a retail space. Versatile Solvalla can also be set up on rooftops of multi-story buildings. Assembly of this solid wood structure takes a full day for two adults. Do it yourself simple step-by-step directions come with the kit and only minimal tools are needed.”
The “kit” includes simple step-by-step assembly instructions, and you will construct the structure with a minimal amount of tools.
The total floor area is 172 sq ft, equating to 16 square meters. It weighs in at 1125kg or 2480 lbs.
The only things that are not involved in the kit are roof shingles and foundation materials.
This garden house has been offered on Amazon for some time, and even when listed as “unavailable” , those interested can order it via Allwood’s official website for $6,550 with free shipping.
It typically ships within 3 to 5 weeks.
The garden house does not have plumbing, but Allwood states that you can purchase many additional DIY kits like a bathroom add on. Also, it does not include HVAC or electricity neither, so it is up to you to add those amenities.
Then, paint the wooden cabin, decorate it, and create your tiny, stylish, and private retreat!
If you are an experienced DIY-er, this adorable guest house for your backyard is something you should dare to try as soon as possible!
