Teepee Guest House

Are you in need of a guest room but don’t have a spare one to give? Then why not build this teepee guest house in your backyard!

It’s great for when you have friends staying overnight or kids who love sleepovers. :)

This teepee guest house is a very large backyard shelter that measures around 5m x 5m. It has a queen size bed mattress inside with plenty of space left to walk around it. The shed can comfortably accommodate around 10 adults inside – perfect for a cosy get together with all your friends!

Its door comes with a solar-powered fan for ventilation and the light is also a solar-powered fairylight in a glass jar.

Rain? No worries – the entire teepee is secured with window flashing tape and elastomeric paint to make sure that there would be no water leaks to ruin the fun!
