Meet Jodie: She spent time in the Peace Corps before moving back home to Alaska. She had to find a home on a budget, and turned a shed on her parent’s property into her own 10’x18′ tiny home, spending only $3,000 on the build out!
She braves the icy Alaskan weather to use the bathroom in her nearby outhouse, and was able to tap into the electricity on the property to run her convection oven/stove, mini-fridge and other small electronics. Obviously not everyone has access to land like this, but it’s awesome that she’s created her own private space!
Watch the video tour and interview from FLORB after the photos, and enjoy learning more about Jodie’s tiny life.

From Shed to Her Own 180 Square Foot Cabin!
Here’s her kitchen area with the convection oven/stove and mini fridge. The sink is hooked up to a small water jug.
She chose a loft bed with storage underneath.
