We’ve seen a lot of people build tiny homes as rental units, but in this case Rodney and his wife rent their larger home and live tiny during the summer!
It all started some years back, when Rodney needed a spot to store his stuff after life took an unexpected turn. Some friends offered a spot on their land if he built a nice-looking shed, so he did just that. But when he got married three years ago and built a “big” house, he and his wife decided to convert the shed into a tiny house so they could rent out their larger home.
What’s awesome about the conversion is they did it on the cheap — he reused cabinets from different kitchens and reclaimed metal roofing which he then painted. The house isn’t filled with fancy things, but is completely practical for the couple’s summer lifestyle. Look at the photos below and watch the video tour with Tiny Home Tours!
