Setback Issues? - I love this cottage guest room. Were there any setback issues with the property line? Maybe it was small enough to categorize as a shed? I'd love to know because this would be great for us too and we live close to SF in Marin County. Thanks!

The cottage was existing - it had been rebuilt a few years ago by the previous owner because there was already an existing structure there. SF Planning Dept would not allow a new structure to be built here now, but it was existing.

We have a single story ranch style house inTexas. On one end we have enclosed a 3 car garage to make a large master BR/bath/closet. My dilemma is how to finish the outside wall so it doesn't look like a garage was there. It is 42' long with 6/12 hip roof and brick on top.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

3. San Francisco backyard cottage. Even homes with a yard smaller than this one often have room for special touches. This yard has many inspiring small-space ideas — readers particularly liked the raised garden beds.
