This was a custom-built home office to create a space for working from home. The exterior was designed to match the main home along with creating an inspirational and appealing space. With all the modern features of today’s home (electrical, insulation, drywall, flooring, interior trim), it also includes a Wi-Fi/Bluetooth-operated Ductless Mini Split that provides quiet and efficient heating and air conditioning to the space. This office was built on a fairly significant slope and with large boulders in the area, creating a stable and secure post & pier foundation was a challenge. To cover the elevated and exposed posts, Outdoor Office created a 2″x2″ cedar slat system to match the modern style of the deck rail system of the house. This project demonstrated how an outdoor office can add value and functional space in the yard vs. a standard storage shed conversion.
