This garage converted studio is a great example of how to live simply in a regular place.

The owners of the home took the extra unused space and used it as a mother in law suite, as most would call it here in the United States.

You got your own side door entrance along with the kitchen, living room, bathroom and bedroom.

The first thing you’ll notice is how beautifully decorated the tiny porch is. Along with the rest of the home.

Would you consider converting the extra space in your house into a separate studio to rent out or even live in yourself while renting out the larger part of your home?

Do you think this is a more viable solution for you than a tiny house on a trailer?

You can tell part of the apartment was once a one car garage with other areas extended into the house itself.

    Beautiful! I think all these have a place in our society. Garage apts., tiny/small homes on trailers or slabs/foundations. It is up to your own personal needs/wants. I like this idea of being able to generate some income which is always a plus.

    Glad to see the use of mirrors finally. They are such an expander for small homes, making them seem twice as large as they really are if they are placed right.

    Good show!!!!
