The home, rather than using high-end materials, is fitted out with simple finishes. Why show it? Sometimes all we need is “basic” and it’s good to see tiny homes at all levels of finishings. Something like this could be built for a lot less than some of the more “luxury” homes we see. Plus, add some paint and decor, and this could be a really cute space! The best part is the storage staircase. Instead of just drawers, you open it like a closet from the back — I haven’t seen that before.
This Shed to DIY Tiny House conversion is a guest post by Joey Price!
We started our project with Tuff Built Shed covered it and Dryvit and finished it out ourselves. We were inspired by your stories. We had minimum experience but learned how as we went. Thanks for your inspiration.
I thought you’d like to tour Karen’s 265 sq. ft. backyard cottage in Berkeley, CA.
Karen originally intended to use her backyard tiny house for her own personal use but she soon realized renting it out would be a great way to earn extra income.
As you walk onto the front porch and through the french doors to go inside you are greeted by the living area, kitchen and bathroom. And when you go upstairs you have the sleeping loft with storage cabinets.
Karen had New Avenue Homes build this tiny cottage for her right in her backyard. Below you can take a full video tour of the backyard cottage filmed by our friends at Fair Companies.
