Parents Bought a Tiny House for their Kids’ Bedroom!

When this couple moved to the family farm 19 years ago, they built a 1200 square foot home for the two of them. But three growing kids later, they were ready for some more space. The costs and permitting for an addition were prohibitive, and that’s when they thought about getting a tiny house.

They parked it as close to their home as possible and built a breezeway to connect it to the rest of the house. In the tiny house there’s a bathroom, loft bedroom, reading loft, and ground floor bedroom for the couple’s two older daughters.

What do you think of this idea?

    My ex and did something similar when ours turned 14, We bought a 16 foot camper and put it in her back yard and gutted it, taking out the kitchen and built a bigger bathroom for him and a lil hang out area for him and his friends.

    It’s a great idea! Minimal construction fuss on site, and flexibility for the future.
