Filed Under: You'll want to move here permanently, and use your main house for storage.
Overview: Pre-fabricated, eco-conscious wood product kits allow you to quickly expand the livable space of your homestead (or, create a whole new homestead altogether), without remodeling. Ideal if you need a hobby area, art studio, private office, man cave, pool house, guest quarters, or want to put one on a wooded lot, somewhere way out in the country, and escape this mad, mad world
Appreciate: Lots of options, starting with style. The Modern Studio (shown above, used as a pool house) is the most contemporary look, but somehow would look appropriate even behind a more traditional home. The Country Cottage is quaint (some may say, "cute"), and has an appealing and cozy, country personality to it. Once you settle on style, you then have two starting options regarding size: The Kanga Studio, and the Kanga Cabin. The studios are essentially one room structures that you can outfit with extras, like a kitchenette and a bathroom; the Cabins are larger, and feature a main room plus extra cabin rooms (allowing more space for the bathroom and kitchen), and usually a porch. Essentially, a Studio is probably more for your backyard and part-time use, whereas a Cabin is more suited as a full-time home. No matter which you choose, you're going to get quality: structures by Kanga Room Systems are award-winning designs based on thirty+ years of engineering expertise
Know: You can have a Kanga Room Systems Studio or Cabin anywhere in the U.S., as they can ship nationwide. If you have a little extra to spend, you'll be pleased with the variety of upgrades: birch walls, bamboo floors, TimberTech composite front decking, Remcraft lighting, and more. And if you need some storage to go along with your Studio, Kanga Room Systems also offers the Kanga Shed; see website for details
