Love this one, and thanks to Kent Griswold too, for spreading the word about my needing photos for my upcoming NEW tiny housing book that I’m working on for The Lyons Press….(See the full “Contest” details in one of the recent blogs below)

I’ll try to get some more info from Cathy on this really cool shed-studio soon, but in the meantime, feast your eyes on a very well though-out, compact, and appealing design, and check out what SHE does (she’s released a cabin book as well!) at

Cathy (Kate) Johnson's Art-Studio Shed/Cabin

Now out of print, but you can find it used- AND she has another new book on the way

Cathy’s original/main tiny house-love inspiration, like myself, was the Lester Walker book “Tiny, Tiny Houses”- which I can’t recommend highly enough.

Cathy's super-funky/talented cabin daydream sketches (be sure to check them out on her site!)

That’s a great cabin. I love all the glass.

Love the French doors, they really let in the light. Great cabin.

Thanks, Deek and paleotool–I wanted lots of natural light since I’m an artist–my carpenter buddy had these French doors he’d picked up at a garage sale and stored in his chicken house for years–perfect!

And by the way, here’s our original, 22-year-old cabin in the woods that I wrote the book about: We still go there when we can, and still love it, but I’m 22 years older and wanted something closer to home!

I’ve read The Naturalist’s Cabin several times. That’s a fine book.
