Tree Trunk Garden Homes by Piet Hein Eek

Inconspicuous spaces can be some of the best, and the garden homes crafted by creative artist, architect and designer Piet Hein Eek just happen to be some of the best. Tree trunk logs are cut and applied to the facade of a mobile ‘shack’– which creates the look of a giant stack of wood out back.

Originally, the space was commissioned by musician Hans Liberg, to serve as a quiet spot to write music in his own field. The popularity of this tiny structure has since grown, and more iterations of the garden shed have been created and sold. The shed has movable shutters, operable windows and doors, and offers up some creature comforts once within. This is certainly a space we would love to have in our own yard as well.
