The Beach house shed is a small, self-contained home on the waterfront that accommodates a family of five. It features a main bedroom with a wall-mounted ladder that offers the same panoramic views as the living area below. It was designed by Crosson Clarke Carnachan Architects with a client’s brief to create a functional yet simple beach retreat. Its exterior includes a steel-framed glass door and shutter on the northeast facade, which winches open to reveal expansive views of the sea and surf.
Beach House Sheds are built with premium cedar and are available in various sizes. The Beachhouse 9X6 shed kit is a popular item at Shed Nation and features a durable construction and a classic design. The shed kit ships in pieces and is easy to assemble, whether you are doing it by yourself or with a friend. It comes with a pre-shingled cedar roof and sturdy frame construction. Other features include a solid cedar door, wide window boxes, a keyed lockset, and additional features like a wood-paneled interior.
Another great idea for a beach house shed is to add nautical decor. This shed has signal flags and life preservers and is often used as a garden office. Some people also put in a bathing suit mannequin and a miniature Bow Maiden to decorate the shed. A few designers have taken this idea a step further. For example, Maine House Interiors created a beach house shed that incorporates nautical details and a mini-bow maiden. Other companies have created nautical-themed sheds that are perfect for hosting small dinner parties.
While a beach house shed is an excellent addition to the exterior of a home, it’s also an excellent storage building. The right design can also double as a workspace or outdoor laundry room. There are many coastal shed designs available online. Browse through these images for inspiration and save them to your Houzz Ideabook.
