Custom Guest Cottage

14'x16' guest cottage designed to complement a 1910 bungalow in Tampa, FL. The cottage is set on brick piers, has a 5-Vcrimp metal roof, cypress siding and Craftsman design elements. It has a studio apartment type layout with a sleeping/ living area and a 3/4 bath. There is an option to have a kitchenette, but this unit was built with a storage area instead. It is perfect for housing guests, an elderly parent, or grown children in need of their own space but not yet able to afford their own place. See a video of the shed construction at: http://historicshed.com/2011/10/video-of-the-historic-shed-guest-cottage-installation/

    I added the floor plan so you can see the layout. Unfortunately we only did a partial build out of the interior and someone else finished out the rest after we left. I never got interior shots.

    As usual, the attention to detail in your projects is what really sets them apart, and I think you should patent your color schemes.
