Mini modern cabins made from hardware store sheds
Three teams of architecture students from Woodbury University in Burbank try to design the coolest, smartest cabin that they can dream up. The catch: Their building materials have to come from an ordinary, not-so-cool hardware-store shed kit.

Woodbury architecture students transformed 10-by-10-foot sheds into clever and colorful accommodations set up at the Shadow Hills Riding Club equestrian center. The sheds had to be tweaked to provide light, ventilation, insulation and sleeping space for two. And though the teams each had a budget of $1,500 for additional supplies, they also had a mandate to experiment with one assigned material. Pictured here are the cabins from the plastic team, left, the wood team and the paper team.
