This is the story of a single father who wanted to simplify his life after divorce by living in a tiny house with zero debt so that he wouldn’t have to stress about money and be able to spend more quality time with his daughter.
So he converted a shed into his very own debt-free tiny home and has been living in it for over three years. He was even featured on HGTV! You can enjoy a video tour of his tiny home plus enjoy an interview with him below thanks to the folks at Our Journey to Bliss.

Single Dad Turns a Shed into his Debt-free Family Tiny Home
The kitchen is nicely organized with open-shelving.
A miniature refrigerator to keep the groceries fresh.
Wall storage is a life-saver in tiny spaces.
The more you can hang, the better!
It’s a 12′ x 20′ shed with a bathroom and kitchen.
The living area doubles as a walk-in closet, and even triples as bicycle storage.
It all started with a $4,000 shed.
And he built from there. An additional $6,500 was spent (not including elbow grease) to make it home.
