A camouflaged tiny garden house/shed office....

Here's a simple take on one way in which to not only camouflage your tiny house or cabin in the woods, but to make it fit into your surroundings- even when there is no need for it to be hidden. Shipping container houses are often pegged by some as being too industrial and cold looking- BUT....slap some lattice work, or wooden slats on the exterior, and you're not only gaining a shading frame and surface around your little dwelling or shedworking office, but you're loosing the cold, hard, metal look that some don't prefer. If you were to grow grapes on this structure, even better! Food, shade, and beauty, all in one!
   Back on "hiding one's tiny house", this approach might come in handy when you're trying to evade building inspectors, snooping neighbors, and those who might blow the whistle on your simple, little, unpermitted, hut- not that I....ahem....would recommend such an illegal course of action....
