I love when our readers share what they’re doing to make tiny houses in their own way and this tiny backyard hobby house is one of them.

They’ve been collecting unwanted windows that would have otherwise just been thrown away. And once they had enough of them…

They built this tiny little house in the backyard. I like to call it a tiny hobby house. But it’s also very much like a micro greenhouse, too. Our hope is that it might inspire you to use old windows too!

One of my favorite parts about it are the real trees and plants that are able to grow inside and how they included space to plant them as part of the design. Pretty cool, right? I hope you enjoy below and if you want to feel free to re-share and inspire others to possibly do the same.

Kent pointed this eBay listing earlier in the week and I couldn’t get over what a cool idea it is as a hobby house on wheels. There are so many people out there with hobbies and something like this would be of awesome use to them for MANY reasons…

  • More space for your stuff
  • A portable area to take with you to events
  • Light and small enough to be pulled by almost any vehicle
  • A portable office so that you can work anywhere?  Mobile backyard office?

This can be useful for so many different kinds of artists (music, painting, pottery, jewelry making, and so much more…). Not only does it provide extra space to store some of the tools you need for whatever is that you do but it also can be used as a place to display and sell your work at events. Add a simple awning with a neat wooden sign and you would be in business! Some outside shelves and fold out tables wouldn’t hurt to bring, either… Here are some photos from the eBay listing… Something like this seems very easy and affordable to put together. This one is built on a 5′ x 6′ two wheeled trailer (one axle). It has 2′ porches in the front and rear. Built with 2×4’s and plywood siding and painted barn red.
