This is the story of how a woman and her husband converted a shed into a retirement tiny house for her mom.
This way she could have a simple place with minimal maintenance and ownership costs to live right on her daughter’s property.
Isn’t that awesome?

My Mom’s New DIY Shed to Villa Conversion

I am delighted that you pride your website on “tiny” living. Knowing that my mother of 75 years was retiring, my husband and I agreed that she should not bear the cost of Connecticut living and move to Georgia – on our property. We started with a 16×16 storage shed, added a 16×10 addition and finished it out. The final is square footage is about 416 sq. feet minus the finish. Attached are many interior pictures and a few exterior. We wanted the exterior structure to look like the original shed, maybe a barn – adding the water trough in front …The final structure resembles just another out building.

We used (2) cedar barn sliders in the bedroom that serve as the bathroom door/closet door. The other is a closet door/main bedroom door. There are full size appliances with the exclusion of a dishwasher. AC/Heat is a ductless system. Flooring is a vinyl “scraped” wood look that is indestructible. Walls have a board & baton look. No sheetrock was used with he exception of green board on the shower ceiling. A shutter was used as the window treatment. This was made out of cedar. My mother just moved in and all is well!
