Phil’s Sonoma Shanty

Shed Workshop

Phil was one of the first people to buy the Sonoma Shanty plans. He has been building a shanty as a way to learn construction skills. This first Sonoma Shanty is a simple shed, his next one will be much more detailed. This one is built in Southern California. His second one he plans to build on the Northern California coast in the Shelter Cove region. He still has trim to install so the shanty appears rough at this time. He has documented with photos his build and you can learn a lot from it. Enjoy and thank you Phil for sharing these with us.

Sonoma Shanty in Petaluma California

Garden Retreat

This shanty has been set up to be used as a garden retreat away from the big house. With fine wood floors and detailed walls, this retreat shows what a high end shanty can look like. When completed it will have a small kitchen and be a perfect place to come away from the big house and relax and enjoy the garden and gazebo.

This shanty was built to Sonoma County building specs “When a Permit is not Required” and you can read the pdf file here.
