Randy’s Little Barn Conversion

This is Randy’s Little Barn – and it’s adorable!

He took the run-down structure and turned it into a great guest house, complete with an indoor bunk and seating area, and a covered porch dining room. There’s even an outhouse with solar panels nearby. Hope you like it!

    Oh my gosh! That is the cutest thing ever! What a great conversion. I love it!

    I love the outhouse! I remember cold outhouses, so this is great!

      @Patty: Ah. I was wondering why solar panels on the outhouse. If used for heating, that makes a lot of sense. Because if for lighting, there are plenty of other options for lighting your way to, and in, an outhouse at night. 😉

    Rediculous…..

    What a great rescue of an interesting old building. A great start and I am sure there will be more sprucing up over time. Nature is the picture window of this house. Just slide open the barn doors and your view is right there. Wonderful.

      Yes 🙂 He did a lovely job! — Tiny House Talk Team

      I built an angle iron and rebar ladder to access the second floor. I had just enough leftover tongue and groove pieces to make a hatch trapping all the heat into the first floor.

        What a resourceful way to build a ladder to the top floor. I love that idea. Creating a hatch with what you had available is a real accomplishment. I love to reuse and make left overs into something wonderful. Keep going…..you will have so much fun.

    The outhouse is unheated and without lights. It’s made of four gates sitting on a platform. A buried cable is used from solar panels to the generator behind the tree. We unplug the barn from the generator during the summer to save fuel. We have too much snow during the winter for the panels to operate properly. Wanted the barn looking nice so we didn’t put panels on it.

    Great job of keeping it inexpensive…:)

      Isn’t that amazing! — Tiny House Talk Team

      We have an antique potbelly stove filled with lava rocks running off of the propane we store in the hutch. A tea kettle burner to cook on and grill we use on the outside table. Very inexpensive and it looks like it all fits the shack.

    i guess with the barn doors open we get more air flow through the inside rather than under the exterior wall. It’s basicly a covered porch outside with a awesome view of the mountains. We are working on an exterior shower and sink so pass along some great ideas for the slack. Thanks Randy.
