Micro House for Your Backyard: Lil Guest House, Office, or Both?

This post contains affiliate links.

Have you ever thought about having your own micro house in your backyard? This little structure is perfect for working, brainstorming, relaxing, or brunching. You can use it as a day time getaway, micro office, or kids playhouse. This particular one has a built in table that converts into a double size bed platform. One of the best parts is that since it’s on wheels you can rotate it according to sun or shade depending on the weather and season.

The benches transform into a platform so you can sleep here. Just like in most travel trailers.

    Hey, add a second unit for bathroom and kitchen then I could be “in”.
    Uh, do I notice casters on this thing? What would be the load limit for them?

    So this has officially inspired me. I will be working with 32 sq ft. I want to make it taller but the same basic shape as this and turn it into a mobile shop/office/camper/escape from the real world. My idea is to add collapsible shelves along the main room. The ladder to the loft will either be removable or built in so it can be used for shelves. The loft will cover the entire top and have a door to close off at night and when the store is open. Now I have to actually find out if I can make this work like I am imagining. This is my birthday present to myself. So exciting!
