Can you imagine having this inviting little retreat  built right into your own backyard, so you could move your home office out of your bedroom and have a quiet space to work and make phone calls from? And later on if your needs change, you can change things up a bit and convert your office back over into a studio or bedroom. Here's a cool video that will show you how one owner customized his cartoon design studio to fit in with their existing home.

Or how about a cool kid playhouse for the kids when they have friends over, that converts into a spare bedroom when the in-laws come for an extended visit? Or this could serve as that arts & crafts shed that you've been dreaming about, so you can encourge your kids to get their face out of their computer screen or the televsion, and get their minds and hands back into doing something creative.
