Family of Four’s $11k Shed to Tiny House Conversion

Did you think tiny living was only for singles and couples? This family of four’s shed to tiny house conversion destroys that myth.

Outside, you’ll notice a very simple white facade with a metal roof and a center door and two windows flanking it. The family renovated a pre-owned 500 sq. foot storage shed where Krista, her husband, and their 5 and 1-year-old children now live. They were able to arrange the use of relative’s land, bought and converted the shed, hooked up the electricity and got the well water running for only $11,000. But this is just a temporary living situation while they prepare to build a rammed earth home in South Carolina.

When you go inside, you’ll find an open floor plan with burnt orange walls. The kitchen cabinets line up against the back wall and a kitchen table for four sits in the main living area. The older son’s bed sits in the corner of the house just off the parent’s bedroom where the one-year-old also sleeps. The bathroom includes a compostable toilet and they even have an outdoor shower.

    Wonderful that they can make this work while they are building another home. Their son is precious and you can see how proud he is of what you have done. That makes it all worth while. Happiness and smiles I see and feel. God Bless your family and I hope all your dreams come true.

    Is the child sleeping under fully stocked shelves??
    You must think of worst case cinario!
    The shelves could give way and fall on him while he sleeps.
    The contents on the shelves can fall off on his head!
    Kids jump on beds all it takes is a good shake to have stuff fall!
    His bed should be moved! ♥
