This 240 square foot shed to house conversion is an awesome little home available right now for a great price! Seller is asking $23,400 (negotiable) and the home is complete (although it doesn’t come furnished).
It’s studio-style inside besides the bathroom, and right now it’s set up with a downstairs bedroom, kitchen and living space. The wood-burning stove is included, and the home is plumbed and has an upgraded electric system. Buyer is responsible to move, and it’s in Fairfield, Iowa.
Linda and her husband wanted a place to stay separate from their kids when they visited family in Kentucky, so they jumped at a good deal on a shed shell and then spent one very-rainy summer living in the shed and converting it.
Now Linda has inherited some land and is interested in renting some of it out to others wanting to go tiny! Right now it’s just an idea but you all can comment and discuss your interest in her thoughts and see where it leads. Also, enjoy their progress photos below.
This couple had a dream to be debt-free AND mortgage-free in their thirties, so they left the suburbs of Houston, bought 7 acres of undeveloped land in central Texas, and built their home out of a shed!
While the 16 x 48 structure definitely isn’t tiny for two people, they also have 4 children. So this family of 6 lives in 768 square feet!
The home features a grand open kitchen area and living room, with two bedroom lofts for the kids, and a ground-floor master bedroom. They also have two bathrooms — one full bath that’s finished and a second en-suite bathroom that currently just has the toilet working.
Outdoors they have a small working homestead complete with chickens, pigs, rabbits and a garden. The home and homestead is still a work-in-progress, but what Beau and Kelly show us is that you don’t need an Instagram-perfect tiny house right off the get-go! They add and fix and improve as they have the resources to do so.
The Shed to House conversion itself cost just under $60,000. They spent an additional $35,000 on clearing land, adding their decks, and getting water and electricity to the property. Download their full expense report here.
Their YouTube channel has tons of videos I’m sure you’ll love, but I posted their Shed to House Tour down below to get you started.
