It’s not uncommon to see a small shed in someone’s backyard. Many people use them to store gardening items or other things that simply don’t fit in the main house.
So at first glance, Monica Smith’s 8×10 backyard shed didn’t look all that strange to the neighbors.
When they saw the amount of work she was doing on it, they realized that she was turning it from a plain shed into a tiny home, in which she planned to live full-time.
But if she already had a house, why move into a shed?
Well, it wasn’t really about her. Smith’s youngest daughter and her five children had recently lost her home. So, being a stand-up mom, Smith offered her daughter and grandchildren her house, and made preparations to move into the shed.
Don’t worry, though: Smith is not wanting for any comfort. She transformed the little shed into a cozy tiny house that looks like something you might find in the heart of an enchanted forest.
With tiny homes becoming ever more popular, many people are trying their hand at converting readymade structures like sheds into real homes. Tiny houses are also being seen as a solution to homelessness in the U.S. and, in a way, Smith’s tiny house is also a solution to the homelessness of her family.
Smith’s tiny home really is incredible, especially when you consider it’s all inside an 8×10 foot shed — and includes a second floor!
