This Inspiring Story on How a Daughter and Her Husband Built a Tiny Home for Her Dad was submitted by Kim Mendenhall
My husband and I wanted to build a house for my Father to live in on our property in Colorado.
We decided to buy a pre-built shed and turn it into a home. The house is 12×32 with an 8×4 covered porch.
The house sits on a permanent foundation with a crawl space underneath. The 20 gal. water heater is under the house. It’s a one bedroom one bathroom home with a living/kitchen area.

The house is still a work in progress but my Father is living in it and is very comfortable. We are planning to extend the roof another foot on each side and put some rain gutters on.
We also have some landscaping to do. The house is very well insulated and has 3 baseboard heaters to heat it. I thought maybe some of your readers would be interested in seeing it.
