Ranging in size from 100 to 120 square feet, these tiny backyard buildings can be used as guest cottages, art or writing studios, home offices, craft workshops, vacation retreats, or a full-time residence. Filled with photos, elevation drawings and door/window schedules for six box bungalows, Shafer's book also includes an extensive how-to set of instructions that can be applied to any backyard building project.
