Insulated Backyard Office Studio
The Coast Studio is our entry level insulated backyard office design. This Coast backyard office kit offers much more flexibility for design changes because we’re not adhering to historical design elements. It uses the same high-quality materials as our signature studio styles for less cost, without sacrificing quality. Doors and windows can be moved, roof pitches and siding types can be changed to put your personal spin on this versatile, functional studio.
The insulated backyard office kit incorporates large windows in the front with sliding glass or French door that offer full light into the studio. The vaulted ceiling area gives the Coast an open feel no matter the size of footprint you decide to use.
Engineered wood beams are a dramatic accent. The ceiling of your Coast backyard office studio is finished with your choice of Cedar or Pine, tongue and groove or shiplap, 6” or 4” spacing on the vaulted ceiling.
All exterior trim is pre-primed Cedar 5/4” thick for longevity and proper look and function. Natural wood is available and can be finished to your specifications as an option.
We design our Coast backyard office studio buildings to be extremely tight, and energy efficient to keep heating down and create a healthy environment for work or play.
All windows and doors meet the stringent code requirements for energy standards. A choice of colors and/or painting can be applied upon request. French doors are optional in 5’ and 6’. 3’ full glass doors are available. These doors can be painted to offer yet another classy accent to the walk-up façade.
