What Houzz contributors are saying:

The home office is modern in design but blends well with the client's cottage, built in 1920, and his eclectic neighborhood in Austin. Here, the woman of the house relaxes outside of the office studio with a friend while the couple's Labrador, Dealer, watches. The studio's wood siding and compact volume are perfectly at home in the backyard; they respect its surrounding environment and remain unobtrusive. "Austin doesn't require permits for backyard additions that are under 200 square feet, so a studio like this is ideal for someone like Joey, who, like many people who work from home today, realize the importance of being present in both their family and work lives," says Speciale.
This fantastic home office was designed in Austin, Texas, built offsite, shipped in parts and assembled in five days. The entire process took six weeks and resulted in a stunning 96-square-foot backyard space. The designer charred the sides in shou-sugi-ban style for its interesting look, but the exterior finish process also makes the structure resistant to fire, rot and pests.

love the Shou-Sugi-Ban wood siding and Monotread wall sheathing. Burned-wood or charred-wood siding, Shou-Sugi-Ban is Japanese wood treatment used in various elements throughout Sett – interior and exterior. Not only does it deliver an attractive aesthetic, the burning also weatherizes the wood, prevents bugs and rot.

Media designer Joey Williams asked builder Mike Speciale to build a home office within plain sight of his house in Austin, Texas; Williams wanted to be close to his family in case his wife needed him while caring for their newborn. Speciale's solution: a modular home office that was customized to the client's specifications within six weeks, shipped in parts and assembled onsite in five days. Speciale agrees that he isn't the first builder or architect to remake the shed. In fact, he acknowledges that they're not entirely remaking it but simply taking "what [they] do in their larger home builds and scaling it down to a studio that's efficient, made with honest and durable materials, and customizable to the lifestyle needs of the client." Houzz at a Glance Who works here: Joey Williams Location: Austin, Texas Size: 96 square feet That's interesting: The studio's wood siding was charred in a process called shou-sugi-ban, making the wood resistant to fire, rot and pests. Sett Studio The home office is modern in design but blends well with the client's cottage, built in 1920, and his eclectic neighborhood in Austin. Here, the woman of the house relaxes outside of the office studio with a friend while the couple's Labrador, Dealer, watches.
