Section and Plan.jpg

The fast pace of the 21st century has put a lot of stress and demand on families, shifting the balance between the hours spent at work and the quality of life at home, as a result putting a strain on the mental and physical health. 

We understand this challenge all too well. Processed air and off-gassing furniture in office buildings, sitting for long periods of time, sometimes not seeing the light of day, it is a reality for a lot of us.

As working from home is becoming a reality for a lot of people, we decided to introduce a backyard office, designed with a more wholistic approach to our mind and body wellness.


we added a 12' wide door/window combination for seamless transition and a nature-immersive experience

we use hemp batt and hemp block for insulation. easy to install, hemp walls will bring an earthy feel, excellent properties and a comfort of knowing that these walls promote wellness - physical and mental

We work with local craftsmen and wood sourced from FSC sustainable forests to form the skeleton with timber frame, joined with mortise and tenon and wooden pegs. Raising the cabin will be reminiscent of a barn raising - an event for the family to cherish and remember.
