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!

What kind of wood was used in the raised beds?

Nice layout. I really like that the designer though out the consequence of what the soil would do to fence if it would touch it. By providing a space and a board the dirt / compost will have a less likely chance to encourage rot there. If it has been done, or not a liner could be attached to the inner timbers to prolong the life of the raised beds. Again nice work and design.

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.
