This is a beautiful guest house/casita. The homeowners wanted a place for an extra office and art studio, as well as a place for guests to stay and have their own privacy. Most of the building was already there, and it was functioning as a storage place and an art studio. As you look at the picture of the building, it originally extended up to the beginning of the patio area. TraVek added a nice area to sit outside on the patio, under cover.
Inside there were two storage rooms. From them, one was turned into an office, and the other was turned into a bathroom. The rest of the guest house is a great room that includes a kitchenette, sitting area and sleeping area. From the pictures you cannot see the bed, but in that cabinetry is a lovely Murphy bed.
As you can see, this home offers comfort and privacy for travelers away from home, as well as a quiet space to spend time, whether they be just relaxing, working in the office, or creating art.
