An 8x15-foot courtyard extends from the back of the tiny studio, allowing just enough room for a few sunny accessories. Bright metal lawn chairs and a gray rug continue the home's color scheme. Plenty of plants and an oversize umbrella provide shade for the petite patio.
My grandmother had these shell backed metal chairs in the shady part of her backyard. I'd bounce a little in the chair for fun after helping hang the laundry to dry in the sun. Then we'd wave to the train engineers rolling past along the tracks just past the back road.
