There are a lot of ways to make a nice bedroom, but for kids there is an element of excitement that is just as important as bedroom size and style.
The appropriately named SHED Architecture and Design has done a lovely garage conversion into a 300 square foot studio apartment in a Seattle backyard. It is hard to call it a renovation, but zoning bylaws would not permit a new building, so they appear to have retained a few sticks. It is another good example of how one can make such a small space not only habitable but lovely to look at. The Architects are quoted in Coolboom : The project began with a 30 square meter single car garage, built in the 1920's, that was in an advanced state of decay and in need of a new foundation. Local codes would have prevented replacing it with a new building and so the decision was made to rehabilitate it.
What more could a kid ask for? This complex and creative space has places to play and sleep, a lofted bed on top with many shelves, steps, hidden compartments and passages along the way up.
