Denise is a knitwear designer and sewing patternmaker running a successful business from her 280 square-foot tiny cottage in California. She intentionally chose to rent a tiny space, so she can afford to live in an area where homes cost $2 million!
Her meticulously-organized space features a separate bathroom and micro kitchen, and she’s arranged the studio space to fit her living, sleeping, and workspaces. Enjoy the video tour of her space below!
David and his wife have been building a small home in Kenya, but just before the pandemic hit they were in the process of selling their country home in France and renting out their townhome, leaving them with nowhere to stay! So they took the space above their garage and created a 300 square foot tiny house. They were able to move in just 2 days before France locked down.
While they are no longer living tiny in France, they spent about a year (during all that quarantining!) living in their gîte. David shares all the details in a little story after the photo tour, so be sure to read that!
The space is great, and even though Kendal doesn’t say so, it’s quite larger than many THOWs we see here on Tiny House Talk. I wanted to share it to inspire folks who might have unused or under-used space in their garages that could make great tiny apartments! The main living area includes space for a full kitchen and living room, as well as a desk and dining table. There’s a bathroom downstairs and then steps lead up to the loft where they have their bed and storage.
The ceilings are low in the second story, but besides that I think this is a great, livable little home! Could you live here?
This is a 12′ by 24′ garage that was converted into a 250 sq. ft. tiny house that’s now for sale because it was done illegally without permits.
So this serves as a warning: don’t build on a foundation without permits because if you get caught, you’ll probably have to tear down all of your hard work.
In this case, the homeowner seems to have rented the tiny house out to vacationers for a couple of years until someone notified the authorities about it and now he either has to tear it down or turn it back into a workshop/garage to meet code. Instead, he’s trying to sell it. The asking price is $20,000 but you have to remove it from the foundation since it’s not built on a trailer. According to the listing on Craigslist, you can hire a house raising service to help with this. It’s located in Vancouver. Please enjoy the tour, learn more, and re-share below. Thank you!
