Mariryan and Heather are triathletes who live in Florida and transformed the Surf Shack in their backyard into a beautiful tiny guest cottage for family and friends. There’s even a cute mini porch off the front of the tiny home.
The inside is pretty micro — with a main loft bed, a loveseat that becomes another sleeping area, a mini kitchen on one wall, and a slim wet bath on the other. What do you think of this space?
Nan got in touch with us to show off her awesome 20×24 storage building that she was able to transform into a tiny house rental with the help of a family friend “jack of all trades.”
She said the majority of the $50K spent on the conversion went to installing a new water system and retaining wall, but regardless, the results are stunning! The interior has one bedroom and it all has a beautiful modern farmhouse feel. Check it out below.
Steve and his wife moved to a 600 foot cabin on 5.5 acres after living in an even smaller space in town. There was an existing 8×12 tool shed on the property, and his adult daughter claimed the space as her own for when she visits. It was then that he got the idea to finish the space out for guests.
The result is the “Sunflower House,” a simple but awesome build that cost under $2,600! The shed was already wired for electricity, but because it’s not plumbed they have a jug system for water to the kitchen sink, and a dry flush toilet. A futon bed provides comfortable seating.
Enjoy the photo and video tour below, and read all about what Steve has to say about the build out at the end of the post!
Shawn and Jess have been living tiny now for more than four years in an RV, and they recently finished this tiny house on a foundation where they will vacation and plan to retire someday!
This is a great example of a new shed transformed into a tiny living space. They purchased the shell from Tuff Shed and then Shawn built out the entire interior of the home. It has two lofts, a large main living area, and a bathroom/kitchen in the back. While the indoor kitchen is quite minimal, there’s a large outdoor patio area with a grill and more.

Meet Jodie: She spent time in the Peace Corps before moving back home to Alaska. She had to find a home on a budget, and turned a shed on her parent’s property into her own 10’x18′ tiny home, spending only $3,000 on the build out!
She braves the icy Alaskan weather to use the bathroom in her nearby outhouse, and was able to tap into the electricity on the property to run her convection oven/stove, mini-fridge and other small electronics. Obviously not everyone has access to land like this, but it’s awesome that she’s created her own private space!
Watch the video tour and interview from FLORB after the photos, and enjoy learning more about Jodie’s tiny life.
Shed conversions are such a great way to get the main structure of your tiny house completed inexpensively. But this 320 square foot tiny house for sale in Jasper, Georgia is more than a shell — the inside has been finished out with plumbing, electrical and some basic built-ins to make it move-in ready!
Both the inside and outside are white and bright, and the inside has two lofts (one easily fits a queen bed). There’s a spacious living area with a built-in workspace, and a kitchen that’s nearly completed. In the bathroom you’ll find a shower stall and composting toilet. The whole thing can be hooked up to a generator for off-grid living.
This quaint cottage in the Yorkshire Dales surrounded by stunning English gardens is just the place for inspiration on converting your shed into a tiny dwelling!
David took his shed, added heated floors, running water, and a bathroom, and created a perfect secluded guest room with everything you need for a weekend stay. There are even tiny skylights to add some extra sunshine. He also painted the inside a lovely sage green (instead of the standard white/cream), which makes the place particularly cozy.

We’ve seen a lot of people build tiny homes as rental units, but in this case Rodney and his wife rent their larger home and live tiny during the summer!
It all started some years back, when Rodney needed a spot to store his stuff after life took an unexpected turn. Some friends offered a spot on their land if he built a nice-looking shed, so he did just that. But when he got married three years ago and built a “big” house, he and his wife decided to convert the shed into a tiny house so they could rent out their larger home.
What’s awesome about the conversion is they did it on the cheap — he reused cabinets from different kitchens and reclaimed metal roofing which he then painted. The house isn’t filled with fancy things, but is completely practical for the couple’s summer lifestyle. Look at the photos below and watch the video tour with Tiny Home Tours!
