Thought you might enjoy a few pictures of my friend Jeff’s recent project for his wife.
It’s not as slick as some of the purpose built tiny houses you feature but the difference is, outside of money for paint, caulk, and screws, this was almost completely free.
His wife was in need of a quiet place away from their house to do her writing. He looked into manufactured tiny houses but didn’t want to spend that much money.
He noticed an old farm outbuilding on his neighbors land and inquired about it. The neighbor told him they never used it so he could have it for free.
He rented a trailer and dragged the whole building to its new site on his land. After pressure washing, 22 tubes of caulk, paint, and a deck built out of lumber from the family barn it is ready for some creativity to happen within.
Electricity is currently supplied by a 400 foot long extension cord from the main house. The great thing about it is it is located on a remote section of their 3 acre plot and is completely out of site from the main house so his wife never knew what was being done. She has been away and family business and will get the surprise of her life when she returns in a few days.
Please enjoy and re-share below. Thank you!

The man deserves “Husband Of The Year” award! <3
What a nice surprise!
What a wonderful gift and surprise. It is perfect. Lucky gal, his wife.
Have to agree with Cahow here – serious husband points earned. And such a lovely location – it looks very peaceful and cozy.
Sweet! Husband of the Year? How ’bout “husband of a lifetime”?
This is what love looks like.
What a great husband! Your wife will be thrilled!!!
I’m the wife of this amazing man, and even before this he was pretty phenomenal!!! After 31 years of marriage, though, I didn’t think he could surprise me with something this delightful, and I cried buckets — even reading this, I’m getting all teary-eyes. It’s perfect, and so is he!!! Thanks for the comments —
How lovely to hear from the recipient of this Gift of Love. <3
Blessings to you both; you inspire us all to becoming greater beings.
…. and he put her bed out there 😉
How thoughtful! I’d like one too, with a wetboard and a few book shelves. A wetboard so I can outline my chapters and characters. And I’d love some good reference books handy, plus travel type picture books with scenes from around the world. Just saying.
Wonderful, thoughtful, well-done!
It is so wonderful when a man will allow a woman to live her dreams and pave the way to make those dreams come true. That’s love.
