Chris recently emailed me about a shed conversion his dad made in Denmark and he wanted to share pictures and tell us more about it:
My dad in Denmark recently converted a shed he originally built for his tools into a ‘real’ tiny house, complete with insulation and electricity. No plumbing though.
It contains a sofa bed, two Ikea chairs, two tables and two paintings my dad also did. This could also make for a nice office shed.
Here’s some more info:
- Size is about 2,70m x 3,30m to keep below 10 square meters, which is the largest size you can build in Denmark without a permit.
- Price was around 17,000 Danish Kroner (around $3,275 USD) – my dad did all the work himself though (except some of the electricity) and some materials he got for free (lofts, insulation, some metal stuff etc.) due to his connections in the construction business. The biggest expenses were the floor and the square window.
- He made the upper row of windows himself.
Thanks Chris for sharing this neat project. If you have an old shed in your back yard maybe it has potential for a tiny house too.
