When This Artist Rents on Airbnb, She Has the Perfect Hideaway Out Back


A backyard art studio provides peace and quiet while cultivating creativity in Seattle, Washington.

Shannon Leahy designed this 800-square-foot art studio with radiant-heated floors and solar power.
The studio includes a bathroom, an office, and a reading room that could also be used for guests.
For consistency, the studio was inspired by the architecture of the main house.
Although the architecture is similar between the main house and the studio, Leahy wanted the studio to use a cooler...
A fire pit and garden complete the backyard as a place to relax when not making art.
