sexySHACK backyard studio



sexySHACK is an exercise in materiality and standard stick-built framing. Atop an existing slab, the building claims the entire area of the slab, with the stud walls cantilevering over the edge of the slab via a 3 1/2" steel angle bolted to the side of the foundation, allowing the utilization of the entire surface area of the slab. Atop the cellular polycarbonate sheathed walls sits a flat roof who's cornice mimics the cantilevered walls framing below.

Over the large 8'X 8' sliding glass door the roof cantilevers out 6' to claim a small entry porch in line with the grassy expanse of the landscaping.

The interior is finished off with sanded plexiglass strips affixed directly over the exposed studs, as well as birch plywood panels and ceiling. A built-in couch extends through the wall and can be pulled out to become a queen size bed. Two windows allow for efficient passive cooling.

The building was completed for a material cost of $10K and will be featured on HGTV's "Look What I Made!" this Spring season.
