Modern-Shed: Dwelling Shed Compound

Dwelling Shed Compound: Don’t live LIFE confined to four walls!

Modern-Shed Dwelling ShedLocated in the quaint town of Port Townsend on Washington State’s Olympic Peninsula the Dwelling Shed Compound was designed by Modern-Shed founder Ryan Grey Smith.

The Dwelling Shed Compound was build as a recreational family getaway.  It also serves as a showcase for Modern-Shed products, designs and concepts.

Connected with raised inter-connected decks the compound is designed around a central courtyard complete with fire pit and benches. A mix of gravels paths, bamboo, concrete stepping stones, composite wood and cedar decking offer many different textures to the look and feel.

This fluid design creates many outdoor living and dining spaces or “outdoor rooms” which become an vital part of the overall living space.

The Dwelling Shed compound features four distinct Modern-Shed Products:

  • 16′ x 40′ Main Dwelling Shed (640 sq/ft) complete with:
    • Bedroom
    • Complete washroom with tub
    • Laundry area
    • Kitchen
    • Dining room
    • Living room
  • 12′ x 24′ Guest Shed (288 Sq/Ft)  complete with:
    • Living room with pullout bed
    • Kitchenette
    • Full washroom with tub
    • Bunk area
  • 10′ x 10″ Storage Shed
  • Kids Play Shed

Oriented to the south to take advantage of all the sunlight the upper clerestory (transom) windows of the Dwelling Shed provide a significant amount of natural light.

The Dwelling Shed is also designed with high ceiling and has a large number of glass windows and doors facing out to the deck and internal courtyard. This design gives and open and airy feeling of an extended living space even during the rainy fall and winter months in the Pacific North West.

No longer is your life and living space confined within four walls.

The Guest Shed was designed to house visiting friends and family. The living room gets converted into a sleeping quarter at night and there are bunk beds for the more young at heart. The really nice thing about the Guest Shed is it allows your visitors to be close by but not too close for comfort.

The Tool Shed or Storage shed makes a perfect place to store the tools, bikes and luggage from visiting guests.

One of the great things about all Modern-Shed designs (including the Dwelling Shed) is that they can be customized to your exact specifications.
