i mean don’t you want to exit instead to the curb not into traffic?

oh I see. you just shove it off the trailer?

 

It actually has inserts in all 4 corners for trailer jacks. Raise it up a little....drive the trailer out....lower it down. 

 

Voila !

^^ I had to look that up but yes. It's small enough that it does not need a building permit.

A garden studio so to speak. I made a full size cardboard mock up to experience the focal point of the desk chair situated in the centre of the 3 windows. Visually spacious.

You would love this book then: https://www.amazon.c...s/dp/0143114743

 

A writer's journey to hand-crafting his own space as a garden studio. Lots of attention to lighting and comfort.

Wow, that book is something else. I'm planning to build a lil' shack myself and I'm sure it'll be inspirational.

It's a personal favourite, and partly inspired me to jump back into college and reskill in architecture.

I will loan you the book when I am finished Mike. I'm sure it won't take me long to plow through it.

Now I wished I had gone to Indigo instead of online at Amazon.

 

....that was funny on so many levels...

Jesus. Where do people who can have one of those things live? In a gated community with armed guards?

On a serious note, though, those are really nice!

I’m not sure what you mean by that. I could see one in my back yard at some point for sure.

what are the dimensions of the original aux box?

* length: 10' 9” ( 15’3” for the extended version )
* width: 9' 11 ”
* height: 9' 6 ½” (plus foundation)
* footprint: 106 square feet
* interior floor space: 84 square feet


why is an aux box 106 square feet?

at 106 square feet, we can typically avoid building permits. although you still need to check with your municipality, no building permits means cutting down install times by months. 

 

 

that's neat.

106 is over the legal limit by six or seven feet for many jurisdictions on Vancouver Island.

Break-ins. You’re not only advertising what you’ve got, you’re making it pretty easy to acquire it.

seems to me it would be much less a target than your house on the same lot.

it's a vancouver island company i'm sure they know the rules.  the rule is almost always 10m2.  or 107.6 sq. ft.

I think you will find that the rule is less than10 meters squared which equals 107.639 square feet.

 

It used to be 100 square feet before they went metric.

Not where I live. The rule is 99 square feet, or you need a permit.

Sheds are huge targets in rural areas. They’re rarely alarmed and they contain expensive machinery, tools and gadgets in a neatly confined box.
