HEXI HOUSE This is a creation of a man living in Northern Ireland. It has been some time since he has updated his websites and other media - so there is a possibility that this project has been put on hold or abandoned.
I have linked to his homepage and you can also visit his twitter page by going here: twitter.com/hexihouse.
►A DIFFERENT KIND OF
GARDEN HOUSE. This uniquely designed hexagonal house is made from sustainable materials and has a wide range of external treatments to fit with your garden's shape and style. Whether it's as a garden office or a place of tranquility, each house has multiple applications creating the space for the activities which matter to you the most. For every Hexi-House purchased, we will reinvest a proportion of the profits to help fund housing solutions for those most in need throughout the world. Changing lives - one hexagon at a time. Download our e-Scrap Book on the Design and Development of Hexi-House. When you are working on a project like Hexi-House, lots of things change and iterate. We have compiled an e-scrap book mapping our journey since we first had the idea in July 2012. This gives you an insight into our ideas, mistakes and innovations since then. Take a look!◄
THE SKYSPHERE TOWER Now here is a very unique backyard home office that many people like. The man that made this unit made it for his own use, but might be interested in selling these prefab to the general public. Actually, it may not be too expensive to make these tower rooms. On his website he shows most or all of the steps required to build this to completion. Very interesting project. This "Man Cave" would make the Jetsons very proud I'm sure. I think
this guy is living in New Zealand, that is where i am located presently, what a coincidence.
►The Skysphere is a Tower fully designed and built by Jono Williams. It is android controlled and powered solely by the sun. It's basic features include: Mobile App Remote Controlled. Fingerprint Entry Motorized Door
Refrigerated, In-Couch Beer Dispenser. Fully Solar Powered with management system. Miracast Projector. Wireless Sound System. Computer generated voice dialogs. 360 Degree Viewing Window. Custom Built Queen Size Bed. Dimmable Colored Mood LED Lighting. High speed point to point wireless internet. Central Ladder. Rooftop Starview Platform. Natural Light Portal for column.◄
SHE SHEDS This listing displays 6 sheds made specifically for women users only. The women in these pictures use the sheds for working on their craft projects to socializing with friends. Actually, i am sure that there is a lot more of these type of sheds throughout the world, but here is a small sample of what can be done. Click on the picture at the right to see a larger collection of She Sheds: A women's answer to the man cave.
►A Crafty Way To Escape. Caroline Counsell, 42, is a sales assistant who lives in Redhill, Surrey, with husband Darren, 45, a mechanic, and their two sons. "The shed is my escape from a house in which I am outnumbered by men. I love arts and crafts, so I spend hours with scraps of fabric and ribbon, making cards and bunting for friends and family as gifts. It's 8ft by 10ft and is filled with colorful containers and piled with knick-knacks. I have a desk, chair and computer — and I painted fluffy white clouds on the ceiling. Though the shed is my corner of girliness, there is one male who is allowed over the threshold, though — my Jack Russell, Mylo!"◄
ROOMWORKS Looks like a very professional company featured here located in the United Kingdom. Beautiful small useful buildings available. They also do school buildings and public buildings. They have garden rooms and annexes from £10,000. Picture on the right is of their "Garden Studio" model, one of their smallest rooms.
►If you are working from home, you will need somewhere quiet, comfortable and productive. As one of the UK's leading garden office providers we will deliver exactly what you need. We can also supply you with an amazing insulated garden room to play in, somewhere to relax, work-out, have fun in or simply hide away. So what makes a Roomworks garden building so different? You might be tempted to say that our offices, studios and leisure rooms all look alike! Well the truth is they're not. Our garden room designs are totally unique. So what we say is this - our buildings are different because of the way they make you feel. The closer you look, the better they get - comfortable modern environments . . . But it's the things you can't quite put your finger on that will really make you happy about your new Roomworks room. From foundations to finishing touches, we will work with you to make everything absolutely perfect. Our buildings stand the test of time - environmentally responsible, beautiful, and built to be enjoyed for decades to come. We guarantee you an unrivalled service.◄
EASY CUBE Completely different concept here. I have never seen a home office design of this type, it allows for a very large exposure to the outdoors in warm weather. The picture on the right is of the basic "Cube" which can be customized with different options or additions such as sliding glass doors, or sliding walls. This cube is prefab and is easy to assemble according to the designer. This is a European business (Estonia) and i do not think this is available in the USA.
The website has a link in the top right corner which allows for translation into English if you wish.
►Are you looking for a modern, still classical looking comfortable garden shelter, practical garden kitchen or grill-house, for an airy dining room and shelter from sun or wind? Your new Cube will provide all of this. The Cube is easy to purchase and transport. You can design your own sliding-wall. A friend, screwdriver, plumb-bob and a few hours is all that you need for assembling. This garden shelter can be re-assembled and moved to another place. No construction permits or licenses needed. You can design the new Cube to fit your needs and desires. Sliding-wall can be decorated with different prints or photos creating a unique-looking building. With help from a friend it takes only a few hours to erect the Cube. Glass sliding-doors on the facade allow you to attain a fully closed building. You can add a specially designed for the Cube "kitchen corner". You can add more lighting with a special ceiling lighting bar. You can erect the Cube in your home or summerhouse garden, on seaside, by a lake or river, or wherever you wish to see it. You don't need any construction permits or licenses. Dimensions: 2950x4200mm (9.5 X 13 FT approx.). Materials: Glued beams, boards, plywood, PVC, aluminum profiles, glass.◄

MORHAUS Here's a really nice listing sent to me by the generosity of Mike Bynum of Sarasota County, FL. Thanks Mike. MorHAUS manufactures panelized building kits for studios as Offices, Rustic Cabins or Emergency and Homeless Housing. The picture on the right is of the "Mor8". This appears to me to be a very nice low cost fast build cabin/backyard home office building. Their website has a lot of pictures and other pertinent information. MorHaus provides free delivery within 50 miles of Charlotte, NC. Contact them about shipping longer distances.
►After many years of designing 2 & 3-car detached garages for Clients w/Gamerooms, Offices or simply Storage above, Craig W. Isaac Architecture felt there was a market for smaller Garden Structures for these uses. Especially with more and more people working from home (including Craig for the past 20 years over his own detached Garage!), the time was now for MorHAUS. The thought was not to assemble an array of plans to sell, but to design a system that could be modified for confining sites, therefore easily assembled and/or disassembled to meet Client's needs. Craig went back to the childhood popsicle stick days where 4 sticks lapped together would make a star that could be thrown, before breaking apart, only too reassemble for another toss. This was the initial thought to designing a truss that would act to support floor and roof and allow paneled walls to fill in to enclose a space. The Mor trusses are easily assembled on-site from 5 prefabricated standard wood components and bolted connections. Two people can assemble the trusses, move them into position and erect the Mor unit with basic instructions provided with purchase. Another important benefit of the Mor units is the utilization of removable connectors for ease of assembly (and/ or disassembly if relocating) along with weather resistant materials which allows the Mors to be used as an enclosed structure w/ open porches.◄
ROOMMATE CABINS Even though most people live in these little cabins here in New Zealand, they are actually better used as a home office building on your property. They are prefabricated then moved to your property location on the back of a truck. These units are very economical and would make someone a nice little business to operate. Instead of buying a larger house to provide extra bedrooms for your family, these units provide the extra living space a child needs at a much lower cost than purchasing a larger home. They are easily installed in your backyard.
►Cozy RoomMate Cabins are available throughout New Zealand, so you can solve your space problems today! RoomMate Cabins are the flexible and easy-to-afford solution to your space problems. Warm, cozy and a great size, RoomMate Cabins offer a flexible alternative to the hassle of finding a bigger property to live in. They are likely to be more cost effective than a larger rental property. RoomMate Cabins are much warmer than caravans or RV's. Their stylish design means they are a great-looking addition to your property or workplace, and because they sit close to the ground they are very easy to access. Give us a call and order your RoomMate Cabin today! At 3.6m x 2.4m, a relocatable RoomMate Cabin is perfect for many uses: Sleepout, Home Office, Sales Office, Site Office, Campground Cabin, Storage Room or Hobby Room.◄
BAUMRAUM The is a special addition to my website which is about a man who kind of specializes in backyard home office structures but with an added tree twist. He designs small usable home office "Tree Houses" and notice the pattern he uses in his structures: One heavy-duty tree trunk as the main holder with two steel poles to support the tree house itself.
Very clever use of trees, and this system is probably applicable in many areas of the world, where utilizing a single tree trunk is all you need, not many tree branches for support. He also has a book out entitled: Treehouses – Small Spaces in Nature, by Andreas Wenning plus another one called: Tree.
►Andreas Wenning, Dipl.-Ing. Architect. Trained as a cabinetmaker, architectural studies in Bremen, working in offices in Germany and Australia. 2003 Founding of the architectural firm tree space, the realization of projects in Europe, Brazil and the USA, lectures and teaching, many publications at home and abroad. Baumraum designs constructions for natural and urban surroundings where you can unwind and let your imagination run free. From simple garden houses for private properties to elaborate constructions for commercial use, Baumraum will realize your concept according to your individual wishes. Baumraum plans and builds inspiring dwellings for children and adults – from small playhuts for games and activities to exclusive permanent abodes. Baumraum designs unique constructions for private clients as well as commercial enterprises in the hotel and catering sector and in tourism and leisure, but specializes in the design and construction of treehouses. The safety and durability of the constructions are of primary importance, but at the same time the trees and natural surroundings are handled with the utmost care. Our treehouses are a peaceful retreat where you and your guests can unwind from everyday life, a wonderful haven in the treetops. From the initial draft to completion, Baumraum combines architectural skills with the competence of innovative craftspeople, landscape architects and tree experts. Baumraum designs and constructs rooms that give a feeling of well being at ground level, up in the trees, and on or beside water. On the following pages you can see different design possibilities for treehouses and other constructions. Let yourself be inspired!◄
GROSFILLEX This is in my opinion kind of an unusual product because it is possibly the only 'all prefab plastic' home office in the world. It has a nice design and perfect size for home office use. Picture on the right is of the Grosfillex DECO 20 A. Also, be sure to look at their other similar model: The DECO 20 B. "With 19.87m² of space, the DECO 20B is also an opportunity to get more out of your garden space. Equipped with 2 access doors and 2 window openings, the DECO 20B model offers a large, L-shaped interior space to satisfy your living, storage and leisure needs . . . Don't wait any longer to invest in your garden!"
►DECO 20 A. A real garden chalet — the only one of its kind on the market. With its attractive lines, its large internal dimensions and its outside terrace for relaxing, the DECO20A lets you expand you enjoyment of your garden. Equipped with a double glass door and 3 window openings, the DECO 20A will fit seamlessly into your garden and meet your living, storage and leisure needs . . . Let your imagination run wild!◄
CABIN LIVING This business seems to build home office suites. But the pictures on their website look to me like they are distributors for other brands also, i don't know. But, they have a lot of different items to choose from. Picture on the right is of their 'Lugarde Paris log cabin'. Note: In my opinion they use the term 'Log Cabin' very loosely.

MAKE SOME ROOM Billed as 'Suburban Studios that are uniquely designed, quality built, and competitively priced'. This is a nice website with plenty of information about their product. They have 3 sizes of backyard studios: 120, 140 & 200 SF buildings, just right for your home office. Picture on the right is of their 10 X 12 FT backyard home studio. It has french doors, awning style opening windows, fully wired, approximately $10,000 complete.
►Technology now affords many individuals the ability to work from anywhere in the world. The requirement to drive into an office building is becoming a thing of the past. With this new work paradigm, it is time to begin thinking of new and unique options for improving our work environment.
A Suburban Studio is the perfect answer for this new age of employment. Constructing a small outbuilding on your property provides you with a quiet, comfortable, dedicated work space just steps from your house. We offer attractive structures that are uniquely designed, quality built, and competitively priced. And, in contrast to prefabricated kits, our studios come completely finished with fully insulated floors, walls and ceilings, phone and cable jacks, and full lighting. Think of the possibility of an improved work day free of traffic, mass transit, parking costs, cubicle life, common eating areas, etc, etc. In addition to eliminating your commute, a handsomely finished Suburban Studio will add value to your home, giving you even more return on your investment. Not only does a Suburban Studio improve your quality of work life, but by driving less, you will reduce the amount of pollutants released into the atmosphere, lessening your impact on the environment. And, if you really want to go green, we can help you add a solar panel to offset the power need, or put in a rain barrel to make use of the run-off. For those seeking some flexibility, these aren't reserved for office space alone. The extra room provides you with many other options for use, such as an art studio, workout or game room, yoga studio, or man cave. Include a deck on yours and turn it into an area to entertain and enjoy the outdoors. Take a moment to look at our designs, then consider if this is a good fit for you. Construction is completed on site by friendly craftsmen in typically under two weeks. Thanks for taking a look!◄

This has been around for awhile and i wished i had put it up sooner. A very clever idea for those wishing to work at home and need a space ship environment.
►Would you like to commute to your office every day by just walking to the end of your garden? Looking for a Garden Office, but want something a bit different? At Archipod (pronounced "ark-ee-pod", as in "architecture") our aim was to create garden office buildings specifically designed to complement a garden landscape, be efficient, ergonomic, and unusual:
Our initial design is "The Pod" – an insulated sphere of approximately 3m diameter. The "Pod" is constructed predominantly from timber, the world's most replenishable construction material, and is insulated to a standard exceeding that of current Building Regulations. The structure is prefabricated in sections that are sized to allow all the parts to be carried through a house, so it doesn't matter where you live, we will be able to get the "Pod" into your back garden. The way people work is changing - the cost and inconvenience of commuting to work everyday is increasing, whereas advances in computer and networking technology are making the viability of working from home a realistic alternative to traveling to an office everyday. In fact, there is more to working from home than just convenience and lifestyle improvements, there can be huge benefits to working in an Archipod garden office, including: Saving on travel time and costs. Reducing road congestion. Separating "Work" time from "Family/Home" time. Reduced heating bills (you will only need to heat the pod whilst you work, rather than a whole house). Very quiet space – outside noise is minimized. Minimal bureaucracy – unlikely to need Planning Permission or Building Control Approval. Working from home can be easier than you think.◄
OUTER SPACE BUILDINGS
Another beautiful Canadian wood building business. Specializing in backyard home office and personal studios. "The extra room you wish you had!"
►Four homes with four home offices later, Lorne Woods began to ask friends and colleagues if they could use some detached personal space too. "I am fascinated with what people plan to do with their new space."
After trying to find a simple way to add a room that was detached, legal, and easy to look at, we decided that a new product was needed and Outer Space was born. We wanted to give people a simple means to get a complete solution, and we have managed to build a great product which is easy to get. Outer Space is a manufacturer of complete stand alone insulated personal spaces used as home and commercial offices, storage, studios, yoga rooms, hobby rooms . . . You get the picture. We call them micro-buildings, as they start at about 10 feet by 10 feet. We install, or you or your handy person can assemble it; a builder is not needed. Make yours larger, in 4 foot increments . . . 10X14, 10X18 and so on . . . Custom sizes available too! Each Outer Space is super insulated and you choose the types and placements of doors and windows. The inside and outside can be finished to match your house, or you can pick any of our suggestions. It's extra space with no heavy construction, and sometimes no building permit! Have fun in yours!◄

Shipping containers are in many ways an ideal building material. They are designed to carry heavy loads and resist harsh climates. They are transported globally by ship, rail or truck. The containers used in our system are recycled clear-span, 20ft steel box frames, which are structurally reinforced to meet current building codes. The modified containers will be delivered by truck and lifted in place by crane or forklift.◄
MODERN SHED Useful as dwellings, home offices, studios. These sheds are not something you would want to use for storing your gardening tools. Can be finished as a guest house or some other nice useful building to be lived in.
►Available in 5 styles. All parts are pre-finished and panelized. A Modern Shed is the most affordable addition one can add to a home. Modern Shed is simply about storage, fun, space, architecture and your back yard. It gives you the chance to have an office away from home, a small art studio, or free up room in the garage. Stop paying off site storage and increase the value of your home and quality of life. Living smaller and within our means-utilizing space to the best of our ability is a start in the right direction toward eliminating the clutter of the day. Modern-Shed provides a creative, effective solution to utilize space while moving in step with the environment, and with the flexibility of customization down to the hue of the trim. Modern–Shed has been featured in The New York Times, Seattle Magazine, Dwell and Sunset Magazine among other publications.◄
SIDEKICK HOMES This is a very professional website which features modular or prefab small homes. I include them in this category because their product can be used as a home office.
►Sidekicks are Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs) - in other words a second living unit complete with kitchen and bath. Other names for a Sidekick Home (or an ADU) include Secondary homes or living units (California) Granny Flat, Carriage House, In-law suite, Guesthouse, Casita (Southwest US), Cabanas (Florida), and more. Most communities require that such a living unit be accessory to the primary single family home. It may be included as part of the primary structure, attached to or detached from the primary home. There are several benefits of building a Sidekick Home:
- Provide a place where an aging parent can live independently, but close at hand.
- Increase living space and home value.
- Provide long-term private living space for caregivers.
- Private nanny quarters.
- At-home office or studio space.
- Supplemental income from rental or as the perfect guest house.◄
