I had to share this story of a man who converted an old tool shed into a beautiful micro cabin for he and his fiance so they can live mortgage-free.
He took an 8′ x 12′ tool shed and added insulation, windows, sheet rock and electricity.
Since he and his fiance work a lot they really just use a 96 sq. ft. minimalist cabin to rest and sleep at night.
Man Converts Tool Shed into Debt-free Micro Home
Learn why and how he did it in the video/interview and tour below:
Long Work Hours Means Little Time Spent at Home
Since they get up in the morning and immediately leave for work and then they come back at night to watch a movie and go right to sleep they just don’t need much.
Using Laptops and Phones for Entertainment
They don’t need a big entertainment center, either, because right now they can just watch whatever they want from their computer.
Shelving Instead of Closets
Instead of a closet they simply just use open shelving and a covered storage area underneath the bed.
The classic firewood stove easily heats up the place for hours on end with wood gathered from around the farm.
Clean Up Takes Just 5 Minutes!
Best of all it only takes 5 minutes to clean up the place. And since there’s no place for clutter, there just isn’t any of it!
