This is a very simple design concept that isn’t exactly new, but worth sharing. Basically it’s just a cluster of habitable sheds. Each one would serve a specific function or set of functions like office, kitchen, bathroom, and bedroom.
In many communities tiny out-buildings like these don’t require a building permit to construct, so as long as they meet the definition of a shed. This might be a great solution for someone looking to increase the functionality of their existing home or to quickly provide a place to live on a remote piece of property. Just be sure you understand your local zoning rules before building a shed cluster.
