build a backyard studio.



Click through the images to the right. You'll see the architectural renderings for the interior and exterior of a Hope Studio retreat.

It's a sustainable, affordable 120-sq. ft. shell for a professionally designed backyard structure that can be built in less than a week. Think of it as that creative backyard space you've wanted ever since you outgrew your treehouse.

With its French doors, galvanized steel siding, large windows, storage loft and rain catchment, HOPE STUDIO is a green-built retreat you can use for woodworking, the arts, exercise, relaxation and entertaining a few friends.*

What makes it sustainable? We chose materials with high recycled content and health-conscious finishes.

  • Galvanized steel siding is a green alternative to all-wood structures.
  • Insulation and interior siding are made with recycled content.
  • Clay tiles act as natural floor insulators.
  • Rain catchment system lets you water your landscape around the studio.
