The loft was a fantastic live/work space for real artists back when they were very inexpensive. Today lofts are ideal for movie stars, lawyers and high tech moguls, but far too expensive for most artists. Another trend is the desire of many creative people to get closer to the natural world.
The “Mini Coach House” designed by William Edward Summers is a tiny house and artists work space rolled into one. It is very inexpensive to build, probably less than a nice new car, and offers tremendous flexibility. This versatile live/work option s the perfect cottage for that lot in Maine, Canada, or Northern California.
