Entrepreneur’s Tiny House Built from Shell

In her 20s, Carly decided she wanted to start her own business as an esthetician, but needed an affordable living situation to make that happen. So she decided to go tiny. She worked with a local professional builder to create the shell, and then she finished the interior with the help of family and friends.

You walk into the “heart” of her home in the kitchen, where she has butcher block counter tops and a huge sink she can even wash her dog in. To one side is her bathroom, complete with a flushing toilet, and to the other side is her cozy living room with a great couch that converts to a guest bed.

She has a loft bedroom with tons of clothing storage, and hanging plants to finish it all off. Take the video tour below!

    Such a great idea. I started three or four successful small businesses online and offline, but recognize it is much harder now than 10 years ago. Good luck!

    Excellent choices, and excellent job Carly! You, your fam and friends are to be commended for a job well-done. I can tell that your tiny home has ticked all of your boxes, and that you will be happy there. I have one question — how and where did you locate a parking spot for your home? Especially one that has sewer or septic hook up…..and I assume water and electric as well. Best wishes in starting your business and enjoying your new home!
