We dream about one day having a bit of land (or at least a backyard!) where we could put up a little shed or tiny house and turn it into our own private getaway: a studio space, perhaps, or an office; a reading room, or maybe a guest house. Some place "other." We think it's important to have a place of your own, and it's even better if you've truly made it your own by building, renovating, or converting an outdoor space into something personal and useful. Have you done this? Tell us your experiences below!
