Pool Cabanas as Tiny Houses

This is my first post on using pool cabanas as a tiny house. It’s really similar to the way we talk about garden sheds as little houses.

I’m sure there are hundreds of pool cabana designs and builders out there.

Today I’ll be featuring some houses by Cabana Village.

They offer pre-fabricated garden sheds, storage sheds, pool houses, spa enclosures, cottages and cabins.

They ship within the contiguous 48 United States and Canada.

Here’s their 13 by 13 Tiki Bar Cabana which can make a beautiful backyard tiny house.

This photo is before the bar area is completed.

    I love this one and to build that with the options for $10,000 is amazing. Are there pics of the inside or the layout inside? Does it include plumbing in for a bathroom?

    I went to http://www.cabanavillage.com/pool-houses/tiki-bar-cabana/index.asp and could only find a blank floor plan. So I’m taking it’s a finish it yourself sort of thing.

    Thanks for finding that for me though. It is still a very cute plan and you could put a mini kitchen where the bar is. Seems like a very reasonable price. I bookmarked the site for further consideration as I am hoping to do something like this within the next 3 or 4 years on the back of my lot for my grown boys to use over the years.
