Guest Post by Michael Kelley – How I Converted My Garage into a Tiny Home for $6k

We live in a 600 square foot cottage in Ely, NV. We have plenty of space for everything except parties and overnight guests.

Our solution was to convert our humble stand alone garage into a party room/casita. Our home and casita project have been furnished and decorated from yard sales and hand-me-downs from friends.

The casita is approximately 380 square feet and features a separate sleeping area and a bathroom with shower. We wanted an industrial look so we used corrugated metal on about half of the interior walls.

A tool chest serves as a kitchen cabinet with drawers. All of the “kitsch” on the walls was obtained for less than $500.00. We did a lot of the labor but did use a contractor for the plumbing and electoral work.

An evaporative cooler provides cooling and space heaters are used for heat. A coffee pot, toaster, and an induction burner have been sufficient for our guests cooking needs. The remaining garage space is just large enough to house our golf cart.

I just got an email from Donna who is the owner of this wonderful historic home near downtown Atlanta, Georgia where she converted the separated garage structure into a little house.

She has rented it for many years now and even lived in it for 6 months while she was having her main home renovated. It started out as a one level one bedroom one bathroom apartment over the garage.

Last year, since one of the garage spaces was never really being used, she decided to turn it into a second bedroom with a bathroom to better meet the needs of her renters. Take a look below and if you’d like to you can even consider renting it below.

The suite is named in memory of the owner’s Russian Wolfhound, Princess Cathryn Natasha. I hope you enjoy the tour as much as I did!

This is a Reader Submitted Guest Post – Send in Yours Here!

Just moved into an approx. 600 sq ft cottage in the mountains of NC.

It was built in 1939 as a garage – and was converted in the 50’s to a house.

Many of the door handles are polished wooden branches (for the closets and the back door and the bedroom door).

I used many of the hints and ideas from other folks ‘living small’ to take advantage of the unusual and tiny spaces in this place.

Truly enjoying the downsized way of living – and with those views out the back door…how could I not?
