HGTV's The Outdoor Room transformed an under-utilized backyard into this multi-purpose sunroom. A corrugated roof with skylights allows natural light to trickle in over a wooden desk, while floor-to-ceiling windows reveal a lush landscape beyond the walls.
With a corrugated metal roof and large cutouts, this outdoor lounge offers shelter from the afternoon sun and encourages cool breezes. Throw pillows and an area rug in soft, neutral hues help showcase the subtle texture of the structure itself: the brushed concrete, the beams radiating from the built-in fireplace and the unique pattern of the tile flooring.
The one-of-a-kind Toybox Home is the result of two guys running into each other at a Chicago reclaimed materials store. Frank Henderson, a music student, met Paul Schultz, a designer, and the two decided to design and construct a tiny house where Henderson could live while in school. It was created with the concept that home should be a fun place inspiring creativity while also providing peace of mind. The home’s exterior features include an energy efficient thermoplastic roof plane (TPO), natural cedar siding and colorful corrugated fiberglass.
