Plan-it Earth Design
The garden structure was custom designed for the client and has an exceptionally small footprint. The client, contractor ( and I collaborated closely on the specifications. I can get the basic plans to you for about $250. and they can be customized if you desire. Just let me know.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Spend rainy afternoons in your own teahouse. I love the idea of creating a tiny getaway in your own backyard — somewhere you can sneak off to, even during a storm, and sip tea while the rain pours down. Leaving two walls (or all four) open offers the shelter of a roof but the romance of being outside.
