A Greenhouse Sleep-Out Under glass
In New Zealand’s many beachside resort areas that swell up to accomodate four times as many inhabitants during the summers, it is common to have a garden “sleep out” for extra guests: just a room for an extra bed.
Here is an example of that rather unique kind of structure, from Scandinavia.
Prefab greenhouses are available that are modular: they can be constructed to be any size.
Designer Linda Bergroth took a prototype garden greenhouse prefab, added a beautiful floor, a brick pathway and steps leading to the door, painted the wood a chic black, and created a wonderful sleep out bedroom in the garden.
Behind the bed room, but with its doors opening back out towards the garden, is a gardener’s shed for storing gardening tools.
A basic garden solar fixture is sufficient to power the hanging lamp and a lamp on the wall above the bed, as well as the record player.
A simple pine floor completes a simple and delightful garden sleep out/guest bedroom.
It is such a beautiful and serene room that the temptation would be to sleep out every evening.
