About this listing
The lawn below is shared with the main house--where my sister lives. It's a great spot for yard bocci, horseshoes, or a nap in the grass.
Modeled with one eye to a Zen tea room and one eye to a Woodsman’s cottage, this modern studio embodies the restorative and the creative (Thank you Gravitas & Green Remodel).
Here there are no disturbances. The Shed is situated in back of a serene and quiet lot at the western edge of Boise’s historic East End neighborhood. Here the crickets will sing your lullaby; warblers, wrens and sparrows your morning hymn.
Guests will enjoy the gardens, and a warm beverage, from the redwood deck perched atop native Emmett basalt stone. Mature plum and honey Locust trees distill the morning sun. If at any time you feel that you need a mental break, please make use of the meditation loft, or take a walk in our glorious foothills.

The entire Shed is yours. The backyard is shared space with the occupants of the main house--a young couple, both busy psychology professors.
Interaction with Guests
I live three blocks away and am easily reached as needed. I will greet you when you arrive and answer any questions you may have.
This neighborhood is unbeatable for access to all things Boise. BSU, The Foothills, The Greenbelt, Downtown, The Zoo, The Arts District, the Farmers' Markets and the Boise River are all within 1 mile.
Public transportation in Boise is terrible/non-existent. If you are here during warmer months and do not need to leave the downtown core then bicycle is the preferred method of transportation. In winter a car is fairly critical.
Other Things to Note
The bedroom is a loft accessed by vertical ladder. The stairs leading to The Shed are rough, uneven stone. If mobility is a challenge for you please consider one of our other listings in the neighborhood.
No smoking, no drugs, no heavy drinking.
We remove our shoes at the door; please respect this ritual.

No pets -- we love them too, but the space does not accommodate them at this time..
