They Built Two Backyard Container Homes for Their Teens!


Matt and Linda used to live across the street from each other because they couldn’t find a spot large enough for their blended family. But when they found a fixer-upper with a huge backyard they saw the potential!

That’s when they decided to put twin tiny homes, built by Alternative Living Spaces, in their backyard — one for each teen daughter! The oldest has gone to college, and their daughter’s friend rents the space now. In the future, Matt and Linda want to use the containers for their aging parents. How awesome!

    Well thought out esp. for someone without too much stuff. I would want slightly more storage space. I like the versatility of different people using it over time.
