A Backyard Room: Kenjo Outdoor Cottage

Swedish company Kenjo is back with a new prefab called Friluftsstugan, or Outdoor Cottage. The new cottage was designed by Johan Svartnäs and comes complete with a movable roof. The upper roof slides out over the exterior wooden deck to make way for a covered outdoor space.

Above you’ll see the roof halfway extended revealing the folding glass doors that slide out of the way to create an open room. Whether closed or open, you always have the deck available.

The cottage comes preassembled and is lifted into the position you desire. It’s 15 square meters (or 161 square feet), plenty of room to fit a decent amount of furniture in. When the roof is extended, the covered space more than doubles.

The interior of the enclosed room and underneath part of the roof is covered in untreated, white wood panels giving it a cozy look. The walls, ceiling, and floor are insulated for year-round use and the cabin is also outfitted with power so you can use the cottage for whatever you like.
