The last time I was over at my mom's property, she was mentioning all the different places on her property where her and her partner like to sleep. They've set up beds on just about every deck, porch, and patio surface they could find. Now that it's finally summer, I say 'TIS THE SEASON for this kind of sleeping around. So let's dream about some sleeping porches -- and even one sleeping balcony, for those of us in the city.
For a slightly more luxurious than usual take on sleeping in the great outdoors, I love the idea of constructing a screened shelter just steps from the backdoor. You can enjoy the sights and sounds of nature, minus the bugs and tent setup drama.
Belatchew Arkitekter designed a tiny, unique prefab house, called Steps, for JABO. The house features a rooftop terrace that’s reached via a staircase built into the exterior structure. The small house has everything you need, including an outdoor kitchen that’s equipped with a sink. http://design-milk.com/10-modern-prefabs-wed-love-call-home/
