The Tetra Shed is a modular system for living and working that can be combined into clusters of up to six. One or two are perfect for a backyard office. When they become available later in 2012, you'll be able to customize the exterior with different colors and materials, including rubber, steel, zinc and copper.
The Sett Studio office is more like a prefab house, with a "water and ice shield roof membrane," drywall walls and Monotred flooring. A solar-powered version is in the works.
You can add upgrades like air conditioning and heat, a built-in desk, stainless steel metal shingles and planter boxes. You can even add a deck.
The Ecospace WorkPod is a relatively low-cost and practical backyard office that can be customized when you order.
It has a swing-up window cover, which doubles as a sunshade when it's raised. You can choose from a variety of colors and for more money add shelves, a built-in desk and other customizations to suit what you need for your new office away — but not too far away — from home.
