The Cairngorms is a stunning area of Scotland, and if you go to visit you might want to stay in this “cooshed” (cow shed) turned into a delightful cottage for two. While the original stone walls remain, the rest of the cottage looks nothing like a home for Highland cows, but rather a modern, well-equipped tiny home.

You enter into the open-concept living and dining area which includes a full kitchen, comfortable couch and ottoman, and a dining space. The bathroom has a walk-in shower stall with a skylight, and you take a ladder to the loft bedroom that houses a double bed. There’s a private patio outdoors to enjoy if the rain holds off.

Rodney and Marcel worked together to turn a shed kit into a beautiful 24×24 cabin in Alaska, complete with a 10×24 covered front porch and two queen-sized bedrooms.

The bedrooms and full bathroom span the back of the home, but in the front, there’s a lovely great room with a living room and kitchen built for entertaining. Could you live in this?

Tiny house living isn’t always forever, but it’s often a wonderful chapter for individuals, couples, and families looking to save money. That was the case with the Krebs, who transformed an old shed into a gorgeous farmhouse tiny home and lived in it for a year and a half while renovating their forever home. We interviewed them right at the beginning of their tiny life, and now we are back with an update!

The family has plans to put their shed-to-tiny home on Airbnb (a great source of passive income) and live in their “big house” with their two girls. Enjoy the photos and interview with Katy below, and then stick around for the video tour from February 2022.

One of our longtime readers, Marsha, has owned a number of tiny homes, including a bus! Most recently, she renovated an 8×8 shed on her son’s property and turned it into a lovely little home — but she is ready to start traveling again and wants to do some renovation work on her bus home and hit the road. So her shed is for sale!

The beautiful little home has a recently renovated kitchen area, and a twin bed that doubles as the couch. It will need to be transported via truck to a new home, and she’s asking $6,500. Check it out below!

Ante contacted us to show off the beautiful home he created from what was an old shed on his property in Croatia:

So, in few lines, we remodeled old tool shred into something worth living now. We are located in Croatia, Europe and we love tiny house projects. This house is 6x4m outside measure and we have a bit more than 21.5m2 of useful space inside. On the other side Olive orchards and gardens outside makes it more value. We also have an Airbnb here during summer because we are in tourist area.
UPDATE: Ante sent more photos, which we have added.

Paul and his family live in Canada, but had a three-season shed on their property in the Thousand Island region of Upstate New York. They wanted to spend more time at their vacation property, but first needed a spot to stay.

So they spent about 4 months of weekends (over 4 years) renovating the old shed into their cozy vacation home! They had lots of help from family and friends, and are looking forward to enjoying the property once COVID restrictions allow.

Take a look at the photo transformation below, and read Paul’s full story at the end of the post.

Did you think tiny living was only for singles and couples? This family of four’s shed to tiny house conversion destroys that myth.

Outside, you’ll notice a very simple white facade with a metal roof and a center door and two windows flanking it. The family renovated a pre-owned 500 sq. foot storage shed where Krista, her husband, and their 5 and 1-year-old children now live. They were able to arrange the use of relative’s land, bought and converted the shed, hooked up the electricity and got the well water running for only $11,000. But this is just a temporary living situation while they prepare to build a rammed earth home in South Carolina.

When you go inside, you’ll find an open floor plan with burnt orange walls. The kitchen cabinets line up against the back wall and a kitchen table for four sits in the main living area. The older son’s bed sits in the corner of the house just off the parent’s bedroom where the one-year-old also sleeps. The bathroom includes a compostable toilet and they even have an outdoor shower.

Please enjoy, learn more, and re-share below. Thank you!
