This is the Kithaus K3, a 9’x13’ prefab serenity space, or whatever you’d like it to be. All steel and glass and wood and wonder. What would I do with one of these in my backyard? Fill it with art supplies and learn to paint? Leave it empty with the exception of perhaps a piece of art on the wall, and a yoga mat on the floor? Position a single arm chair and ottoman within reach of a large, full bookcase, a basketful of seaglass on the floor and a fountain outside the door? Set up a massage table? Fill it with fluffy daybed, an afternoon breeze, and Bach’s Cello Suites? A baby grand piano? A hundred orchids? My in-laws? On second thought, they can have our room. We’ll take the Kithaus.
