How Did He Improve His Old Tiny House?

Unfortunate events that happen to some people cause their lives to shift in very different directions. As a result of what happened to Allen, he finds himself in a completely different life in a tiny house. Allen, who has lived on a large farm in Nebraska since his childhood, borrowed money from the bank to own a large house in the city. Allen, who owned a house with his wife with a huge debt, separated from his wife after a while. After that, like many divorced people, Allen had to put his house up for sale to get rid of the debt. Allen, who sold his house short because the loan he used to buy the house was more than the real value of the house, was very harmful from this sale.

Allen, who was economically distressed, talked to the owner of the factory where he worked and asked for permission to build a tiny house in a corner of the factory. His request was granted, and Allen started working with a portion of his salary, buying some new and recycled materials for his tiny house. Inspired by Tumbleweed Elm, he worked on the tiny house plan in his spare time and completed the tiny house by himself.

The tiny house, which was completed with a budget of 13000$, was useful but rough according to Allen at first.

As he traveled across the country for his work, the tiny house was always with him. After living happily in his one-room tiny house on wheels for a long time, Allen decided to upgrade it, this time with a real plan.

In the new renovation, the main structure of the tiny house was preserved, but the volume of the house was increased with various additions.

Outside the house, a very large seating area has been created to spend time with people. There are comfortable armchairs and a table big enough for a meal.

This time the renovated tiny house consists of a living area, work area, sleeping area, bathroom, and kitchen. You enter the tiny house through the door opening from the small veranda. As soon as you enter, you encounter the living area. There is a very large TV and a comfortable armchair in the living area. On the wall, there are storage areas used as shelves made of wood.

After the living room, there is the kitchen area. All the appliances that should be found in a normal kitchen are also available here. From the door opening directly opposite the kitchen, you reach the wardrobe.

From the kitchen, wooden stairs lead to the sleeping area on the mezzanine floor.

There is a double bed here. Windows on the sides bring both the view and natural light inside. Wood is used throughout this section.

If you continue up the stairs, you can go to the bathroom, and if you continue a little further, you can go to the work area. In the study area, there is a wooden deck along the wall.

Allen has managed to replicate his childhood farm life in this tiny house in a minimal way. He sources his cooking ingredients from a greenhouse located close to his tiny house.

If you decide to switch to a tiny house life one day, it can help give you an idea.
