92 Square Foot Backyard Office

92 square foot SIP panel, modular, backyard office. 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, and has enhanced fire-resistance. Photography by Blake Gordon and Lisa Hause

    This unit was roughly 42,000.00. At this time we have suspended construction on our small spaces due to the rise in homes that we are building in the Austin area.

    We found them at a local landscape yard in Austin although they would not be difficult to make!

    Thank you for your kind words! Mono Tread is something that we manufacture in house. I does need to be sanded and sealed after installation. Please email Kimber at Kimber@SettStudio.com for pricing.

    Would love to see your work some time when I come up to Austin ( sadly, not very often)

      It depends on the exposure to the sun and the area that you may be in. In most cases, reapplication would need to be with-in the first year and again as needed for a few years to come.
