This little structure measures in at just 99 square feet, not including the porch. Its entrance is flanked by two massive columns which, together with the generously sized purlin, eave and window trim, place the building squarely in the Craftsman tradition.
The exterior dimensions are approximately 7' wide x 16' long. The porch adds another 2' to the length. At the roof line, the Anderjack is 9'6" wide and 20' long; and it stands at 11'2" tall (not including the foundation). The downstairs has a ceiling height of 6'6", and the loft height is 3'.
About the Backyard Bungalow models
Undue expense and red tape have been cut to keep the Backyard Bungalows user friendly and affordable. Most municipalities mandate that a permit is not required to put a building of less than 120 square feet on your property, though you'd want to check with your local building and zoning departments to be sure. While you're at it, see if there are any setback requirements that govern where a structure can be set or how it can officially be used.
Our plans include a foundation on concrete footings, but the foundation choices are limitless.
Finishing the interior
Once you've got a shell, the interior fittings and finishes are entirely up to you. It can be used as a tiny house, backyard bedroom, office, yoga retreat, or artist studio.
A sleeping loft can be set on the collar ties overhead with ease, or you may choose to put a bed down stairs. You can also consider a Murphy bed or other foldaway furniture. Including a lot of storage is a great way to open up the area as much as possible for a sense of volume. Built-ins are also a great way to maximize space.
