Designer: Eric Moser Size: 88 square feet Plan Name: Vernacular Garden Shed, #1915 Where to Find it: houseplans.southernliving.com
This adorable little outbuilding is ready to become your backyard retreat.
The shed was built for the Mt Laurel community, the town of our beautiful 2016 Idea House. Come on over to Mt Laurel to see the structure for yourself. This summer, a space was built around the shed for a community garden—it is a focal point as you enter the neighborhood. New life grows each month as the garden flourishes, and the shed is at the center of it all. The garden allows neighbors to have fresh vegetables at their doorstep while also building their sense of communty as they help keep the garden up together.

More than just a garden shed, this endearing little structure can be a backyard studio or office.

Beaufort, SC residential designer, Eric Moser says his favorite thing about buildings like this is "they entice people outside. You can think of them as 'garden rooms' that help make the outdoors more comfortable and enjoyable."
The windows and shutters are operable, the James Hardie siding is durable, and there's even room on the porch for a charming rocking chair.
