Tiny House Inspiration

Today I took our dog to my folks place in Ukiah as we will be heading out of town for a few days to see my in-laws and pickup my daughter from college and bring her home for spring break.

My dad has been working on what originally was supposed to be a wood shed that spans a creek behind his house. He used mostly recycled wood and windows in the project and bought what he needed otherwise.

Shed Cabin

The “wood shed” is 8 foot by 12 feet and turned out much nicer than he originally planned. The interior has yet to be finished and the exterior just needs a little touch up to be completed. He thinks it came out to nice to use for just storing wood, but has not come up with a final use for it.

I would love to take it and turn it into a tiny house. The roof is not quite the pitch I would want for a sleeping loft but it would work well for storage. I see a small kitchen galley, a futon and a small bathroom, just right for one person to live in. It’s hard for me not to ask to take it over and finish it. However, they live just far enough away, that it most likely won’t happen.

Anyway, keep your eyes open for potential tiny house opportunities. Send me photos if you have them and I’ll post them for everyone to see.

Looks like you might have infected your dad with the tiny house bug! YEAH! I love the giant overhang, not something easily done in a mobile tiny house.

    Yes, he is interested and is enjoying the blog. They were brought up during the depression and are very frugal and don’t throw away very much. They have been in their home sense they built it in 1974 and still have some furniture we in previous houses.

I love Ukiah! “Helping him” work on “the shed” would be a fun excuse to visit more often.

Very good point about “Helping him” as it has come to a stand still lately.
