About four years ago, graphic designer Joey Williams learned that he and his wife were expecting a girl. He panicked—not because he was scared about being a dad but rather because he didn’t know where he was going to work. He had been working out of their modest East Cesar Chavez home, but that space would be taken up by the baby. He thought, What am I going to do? The answer: Install a freestanding, 96-square-foot studio in his yard that would serve as his office.

The studio proves that small doesn’t have to be ugly. The unit, which was prefabricated and assembled on site in three days, features stylish wood siding burned using the Japanese shou-sugi-ban process, 8-foot sliding glass doors that allow tons of sunlight and a space-saving built-in desk.

The office has electricity for Williams’ television and computer equipment, but since the space is not permanently hardwired and is less than 200 square feet, it didn’t require the time-consuming permitting process of, say, adding a 100-square-foot room to the house.

Williams is careful not to cram the office with needless items so that he can use the space as an office or, more recently, as a man cave to catch a game with friends. “I wanted a space that I could feel excited about going to work in,” he says. “There are a few other versions of these things, and a lot of them just looked like a fancy shed. If I want a shed, I’ll buy a shed. When people walk in the yard, they’re like, ‘Wow that’s freakin’ cool.’ It adds to the dimension of our home’s space. Sometimes I walk out the door and say, ‘Yes! I get to work in that today.’”
