Each time I see a coffee hut by the side of the road, I not only get a craving for caffeine, but I wonder if some of these structures can be turned into a tiny house. Many of them are already on wheels and are the perfect size for living in. Some coffee huts are not affixed to a trailer, but are still small enough to be moved to a new location for a smaller life with a much smaller price tag than many tiny homes.
There have been several coffee huts for sale on different websites including Tiny House Listings and Yakaz, including this 60 square foot hut on wheels currently selling for $5,000 and a 12×12 building in Missouri for $15,000. Seed to Cup Coffee Solutions sells new coffee huts that range in sizes and prices and include designs like trolleys and trailers.
What would it take to turn a coffee hut into a tiny house? Plumbing, water tanks and electricity are already installed in most so these structures are more complete than a prefab shed, and some larger coffee huts already have basic bathrooms and sinks installed. Many coffee huts will also already have heating and air conditioning. The main construction of these tiny spaces would be a living and sleeping area. I would love to hear from tiny house enthusiasts who have turned a coffee hut into a home or what our readers think about the idea.
