Woman Transforms Garage Into Her 450 Square Foot Home

Anne stumbled across this gorgeous lot of land in New Zealand with ocean views on one end and gorgeous bush views on the other end. When she bought it, all it had was a garage and a small utility shed. Instead of choosing to build a larger home closer to the road, she decided to make the garage into her home and put a deck off the back with private views of the landscape behind her!

Eventually, she built some small cottages on the front of the property, which she rents out on Airbnb. That helps her pay the bills and make great use of the property she has. Just wait until you see her eclectic/shabby-chic cottage design!

She didn’t know at first that she could add a deck, but she loves the views it provides.

Each piece of furniture in her home is carefully curated.

Her bedroom opens up to the deck and has an en-suite bathroom.

  • Anna found this incredible piece of property nearly a decade ago, which had nothing but a utility shed and garage on it.
  • She chose to transform the garage into her 450 square foot home, complete with a bedroom, living room, full kitchen and luxurious little bathroom.
  • Anna got a second living room and additional storage in the carport which she closed in to create another room off the side of the house.
  • The addition of a huge deck off the back of the house was perfect to expand her living space outdoors.
  • She chose the lot because of the incredible views of the bush in her backyard.
