Garden Shed

Small Structures - 2008 - Toronto, Ontario

Built at Toronto’s Botanical Gardens, this is one of the city’s few straw bale buildings. Deep 16” wide straw bale walls are a hard sell where space is tight and real-estate is high. We did however receive many inquiries from visitors to buy or rent the shed upon its completion. The idea of living in a super insulated straw bale tiny home appealed to many Torontonians. We are still waiting for that call…
