The couple that own this caboose micro guest house also own a 800 square foot small house that was originally built in 1902.
Since it’s a two bedroom home, and the wife is an artist, they still needed more space for when they have guests over.
So they found this caboose on Craigslist. It’s 7’x10′ so about 70 square feet of space.
Eventually they have plans to add a tiny bathroom (or a separate outhouse) along with proper plumbing for water and sewer.
Now they’ve got themselves a micro guest house for when they have visitors.
It’s also a perfect little backyard getaway from the spouse (lol). So how would you use it if it were yours?
I’d love to use as a writing space, micro office, backyard getaway to read, or even permanently attach it to a trailer for camping/traveling. How about you?
Enjoy the rest of the tour below:
They mounted it onto a trailer to transport it to their home after they bought it off of Craigslist:
Mounted onto Utility Trailer for Transportation
Then they removed it from the trailer (see below):
I think it’s perfect because it’s short enough to where the windows and the structure itself don’t intrude into the neighbor’s yard.
Let’s go inside:

The bunk beds are great and there’s even a kitchenette with sink and stovetop.
And a closet for storage that you can see below:
Stay tuned for an upcoming post which features their 800 sq. ft. small house. 🙂
